CHOOSING THE BEST ROMANCE TOUR OPERATOR!
No matter which website you visit, inevitably you are going to see the claims - We are the best, the biggest, the greatest! How do you decide whom to trust? How do you sort through the "puffing" and get to the facts?
There are a number of factors you should consider when choosing a company to assist you on one of the most important searches of your life. Below we list 10 points or features that differentiate us from the rest.
Before deciding, always conduct some type of independent research of the company; call past tour clients, check their reputation on the web using forums or news groups, ask friends, check with the Better Business Bureau. Be confident that what they are telling you is actually true, and actually what you will receive!

THE SOCIALS - A Foreign Affair's Socials have earned the reputation of being the best in the industry among both men and the foreign women. We spend more money on our Socials than anyone in the industry - bar none!
- Highest ratios of women to men
- Private, invitation-only Socials
- Different women attending each Social during the tour
- Due to jet lag and other considerations, such as our longer tour lengths, and to allow you the best opportunity to follow up with all contacts, all European socials are held every other day, as opposed to back-to-back-to-back
- Fully catered with superb food, champagne, soft drinks, etc. You are never asked to purchase food or drink for women during a Social as do virtually all other companies
- Excellent environment, normally Grand Ballrooms, or private Entertainment Complexes, conducive to meeting as many women as possible, while treating the women with the utmost respect and dignity
- You assist in the selection of the women attending the Socials
- You receive a master list of the women who have been personally called twice and confirmed for the Social.
- Every woman is screened and checked in at the door
- You are never forced to move or talk to women you are not interested in. You are encouraged to speak to as many different women as possible, as most men will eventually marry someone they never wrote to or invited to the socials.
