"Daniel had our trip so well thought out. Each day we had a plan of attack of what we were seeing and where we were going and the day just flowed. We had people of all ages and Daniel made sure that we had water breaks, snack and meal breaks, all without seeming like we were wasting our time resting! I'm still amazed at all we saw in the time that we had, but Daniel had our trip so well organized that we got the most of each day. The biggest bonus was Daniel's knowledge of the City and the sights. It was so cool to have someone who was that knowledgeable being our personal tour guide and sharing all that information with us."
"I’m fairly well-travelled (including previous trips to Rome), but I got more out of this brief week in Rome than on any previous trip I’ve made. Not only is the city itself a fascinating composite of new and ancient, but seeing it through the eyes of someone who truly knows and loves it, makes it a truly wonderful experience."
"While on the trip I felt I gained an increased appreciation for and understanding of the history of our Christian faith. I came away with a broadened perspective of the world and the history of its religions. Daniel’s extensive knowledge of the history of Rome, its ancient art and architecture and the beginnings of Christianity made him an invaluable resource for questions that came up as we planned for our trip and as we visited the various sites. The trip was greatly enhanced by Daniel’s obvious interest in and enthusiasm for Rome and its history. He remained a cheerful, patient and helpful guide throughout the trip."
"My wife and I joined Daniel Cochran and others through a journey through time in Rome lasting for a week. He had prepared us for this trip through lectures, pictures and multimedia slides, the internet and other forms of instruction but what we received on the trip was far greater than any of our expectations...It bought to life all the stories in the Bible in a way that no other form has done so far. It helped us appreciate all of the knowledge such as dates, people places and important events through a sort of simulation in our minds by being present at all these important sites physically. Through this trip we gained a better understanding of how the events throughout history have shaped us into what we are today. Through this art history tour we gained a better understanding of cultures of the past especially western, but it also gave us insight into various cultures of present day since we were better able to understand the brand of Christianity we are integrating with by living in the US especially Catholicism. By observing the creations of people from other cultures we gained a better understanding of their lives. We feel now that there are almost no distance or language barriers in art, it is universal. All in all we strongly and unequivocally recommend Daniel’s ministry through these trips"

"During our trip to Rome we met others who where on tours. One could watch and listen to their comments about what Daniel was explaining to us versus their own guide. On one occasion he took the time to point out to some high school kids where they should be looking for an area they in which they were interested. If your looking for someone you can trust, learn from, and enjoy...you can't miss with Daniel."
