Nadine M., Mexico

Bonjour Une organisation sans faille de la part de JPM Tour, des documents clairs et précis. Les rendez vous avec les guides toujours sans retard et bien à l'endroit attendu. Les hôtels choisis correspondaient tout à fait à notre souhait. Mais surtout, surtout, nous avons eu des ennuis de santé, rage de dents à l'arrivée à Cancun, puis mon fils s'est ouvert la main à Tulum, il a fallu le recoudre. Etre en pays étranger en ne parlant que très peu l'anglais et l'espagnol est très paniquant. Nous étions un peu perdus pour prendre les bonnes décisions et l'équipe de JPM Tour et particulièrement Jean Laurent nous a aidé sans compter, répondant à chacun de nos appels, s'inquiétant du suivi médical. Notre voyage aurait pu mal tourner et grâce à l'équipe de JPM Tour, tout c'est finalement bien terminé et le Mexique est un super voyage et nous laisse un magnifique souvenir. Cette agence est vraiment un excellent relais de votre organisme, merci de nous avoir aiguillé vers eux. Voilà la deuxième année que nous voyageons avec vous et nous sommes enchantéès. Je vous avoue que je regarde avec envie vos suggestions de voyage pour l’année prochaine Bien à vous, Nadine M. Read more

Jean-Jacques M., Georgia

Bonjour Notre voyage s'est très bien passé, grâce surtout à notre guide Lia. Elle a été exemplaire. J'espère que la GE ne fera pas partie de l'UE, conservant ainsi ses produits de la ferme "naturels". Et d'espérer également qu'elle pourra exporter ses vins et miels. Bcp à faire. Les paysages sont très beaux, même s'il en coûte à notre système cardiologique en ayant peur sur les routes. Dommage peut-être que nous n'ayons pas eu l'occasion de voir et entendre les musique et danse folkloriques. Voilà en général notre impression. Cordiales salutations, Jean-Jacques M. Read more

Véronique B, Iceland

Voyage très bien organisé. La mise à disposition d'un 4×4 pour les pistes des fjords du Nord Ouest aurait été un plus. Nous recommandons Akemia à ceux qui veulent partir en Islande.
