  • Please can I pass on our thanks for a lovely week last week on your holiday to the Norfolk Broads. As you will be aware, we were blessed with beautiful weather which meant we could enjoy all the excursions to the full, what a packed week we had, exploring this beautiful corner of England. We enjoyed every day, and Dave was a wonderful host, caring and looking out for everyone, keeping us informed when out and about on points of interest and doing his best to ensure our holiday was the best it could be.

    Mrs L, Greenodd
  • Just a quick note to say how much my wife & I enjoyed the Heart of Wales tour. The hotel and food were superb and Dave as usual looked after us all. See you again soon on the Newcastle & Gateshead Metro trip

    Mr & Mrs F, Barrow
  • Thank you so much for organising trips in this difficult time. Thank you for taking all the precautions & looking after your groups. I so enjoyed your ‘maiden voyage’ to Bournemouth. I look forward to Blackpool Illuminations & later the Mystery Tour

    Mrs H, Askam
  • What a brilliant holiday, even if the good weather helped a great deal. The hotel was excellent, with fantastic staff, and good food. There cannot be many places where one has 2 bathrooms! (An adapted shower room and a standard bathroom). I thoroughly enjoyed the excursions and look forward to seeing next year ‘s brochure. Wishing you all well for the future.

    Mrs M, Ulverston
  • Just returned from an excellent tour to the Brecon Beacons. Excellent service all round. Can’t praise Dave’s efforts enough, to ensure everyone safe and happy. Choice of hotel and trips out great. Thank you

    Mrs A, Barrow
