Guest Comments

Each year we conduct surveys asking our guests to rate various aspects of their holidays with us.  Below is a summary of the results and a selection of the comments we received.

Overall Enjoyment And Value For Money
All guests rated their overall enjoyment as "Excellent".
All guests rated value for money as "Excellent"

  • "In every respect what you offer is fantastic value for money and your personal input and involvement 'are the icing on the cake'.  May 'Operetta Heaven' continue to flourish"

  • "I would recommend 'Operetta Heaven Holidays' to anyone interested in the music of Lehar/Strauss etc.  If you stay in Bad Ischl you have the chance to visit a beautiful small Austrian town and experience both traditional and modern productions of old favourites and less well known operettas.  Thanks again for your superb organisation"

  • "We greatly enjoyed our holiday in Austria.  Thank you for all you did to make our holiday such a special one.  Bad Ischl is very close to our hearts and it certainly did not disappoint this time.  We loved our time in Baden as well"
