What they say about FAF

“… Davina and Ildiko have been nothing short of delightful. They both have extended themselves beyond any expectations with courtesy, responsiveness, assistance and concern. I am extraordinarily impressed with not only what FAF does but with the members who support and run it.”

- Joan Klayton, Participant, Movement Laboratory, July 2007

“Thank you so much for all you achieved in creating this memorable tour for the Prescott Master Chorale to Scandinavia. These countries contain some of the most stunning scenery, remarkable historical sites, and the friendliest people in the world. Our concert audiences were very enthusiastic. The cost of this tour was very reasonable for what we received.”

- James L Klein, Director, Prescott Master Chorale, May/June 2007

“We just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the Ladue Chapel trip to Hungary … Everything worked out well and we really appreciated all of your help and tips. We wanted you to know we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thanks for all your help!”

- Sharon & Ralph Thaman, Ladue Chapel Choir, August 1999

“The trip was a wonderful success. Our guides were excellent; we got to sing at the Vatican for a Mass in St. Peter’s and it was wonderful. The educational tours were excellent and the guides for them were well organized. The final dinner was excellent. Thank you for your work; it was good working with you again.”

- Ellen Bowen, Grosse Point High School to Italy
