What PCA members have to say about the PCA Treffen trip
PCA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"We had high expectations that were derived from the publicity materials and the price. We are fortunate enough that when we travel we tend to choose the best there is - first class air travel [well since the demise of dear old Concorde anyway], the nicest hotels, penthouse suites on ships etc. It is a rare occasion when our expectations are exceeded. Only twice in recent years - The Rocky Mountaineer train and The PCA Treffen. We expected a new 991, we got just that. We expected good hotels and we got them [although the Bayerischer Hof is a little tired]. We expected knowledgeable guides and we got them in spades. We did not expect the depth of attention to detail - the cars lined up for us each morning, fresh bottles of water at the ready, iced water with all meals [doesn't happen in europe], the intimate knowledge of everything that goes on at Zuffenhausen etc etc. You did exceed our expectations and in doing so the price became a relative bargain. Very well done."

PCA Photo of the Week
PCA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

"My husband and I enjoy driving the coast of Maine in our 993 exploring new places to dine on a lobster roll 'in the rough.' As a lot of these places are no more than a shack on a dock we always carry a couple of chairs with us in case we want to relax. My husband took this picture of me and our 993 last summer at one of our favorite stops."
