Hear from our previous Grand Prix attendees

We recently enjoyed an Iglu package which included a cruise with MSC and an F1 Grand Prix event in Monaco. We would like to offer you our congratulations on the event team you sent to meet us in Marseille and escorted us from the Ship to Niece and to the F1 Grand Prix in Monaco. The care and support we experienced was well beyond our expectations. We really didn't realise how much effort Iglu made to make sure we were well looked after but also were fully informed about the locations and especially the F1 Grand Prix in Monaco.
We must say that other than escorted tours, we have never experienced this level of service, care and guidance before and we would like to thank Iglu for an exceptional service and an excellent trip. We cannot praise Chris and the team enough for their service.
A and E Williams, June 2017
