WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING...

"Great tour - really interesting places helped as always by Julian's deep knowledge and humour! Impressed by hotel and staff. Arrangements went like clockwork and Les was a good driver and companion. We will definitely revisit Shropshire. Thanks John

John F ,

"What a great success the holiday has been. Everyone seemed happy with their paperwork and the communications. The hotel was great and the staff were helpful. The coach was excellent, a new vehicle with good air con and the driver Geoff was superb. Julian was an excellent guide and pitched his guiding and preambles absolutely right. Now for next year - we would love you to be on board again if you would like to be and most of the people on the trip were anxious to know where and when we are going!
