Wunderbar in Vienna!

Special anniversary visit

P & L

Dear Andrew and Jeanette,
Thank you for organising such a lovely trip: all the travel things worked absolutely fine, the hotel was excellent with some good recommendations for places to eat, and perfectly placed for everything we wanted to do. So we visited the Cathedral, much of the Hofburg and the Upper Belvedere to see the Klimt exhibition as well as doing some Christmas shopping- seeing us return with shopping bags the very dry head porter said ' Die Verkaufen; die Verkaufen ist sehr gut!'  And the operas were wonderful. Beautifully sung and played with very contrasting but both interesting productions so we had a very fulfilling time. You were right about dress code: I did white DJ for Otello as that was my birthday and I was the only person in formal evening dress- there were a couple of people in Austrian national evening dress. But at least everyone in the stalls was paying attention rather than answering their emails like at La Scala!!So we can very strongly recommend the productions and the hotel was perfect. So we had a wonderful time and are as ever grateful for the extraordinary efficiency of your arrangements.
