ROE: Orbit World Travel worked in partnership with EABC to deliver an engaging and bespoke experience for all who participated.

Where would I be without you? Thank you for all the to-ing and fro-ing, the changes, cancellations, the midnight phone calls. For organising the porters at the hotel Amigo to carry our 80 pieces of luggage from the coach to the hotel after the street was blocked! And most of all for my beautiful room in Madrid. Thanks for everything – we did it again!
