    Premier Tours Review

    Premier Tours' agent Steve Gleba, planned our month long trip to Africa. He did an amazing job; he was helpful, responsive and understood our needs completely. He had great ideas and knows Africa really well. Our trip was complicated-- 5 countries, 10 different flights, and numerous transfers. Every single thing went smoothly and as planned. And every experience was incredible. If you are thinking of a safari, call Premier Tours.
