"Thanks you both for organising such a great trip. In our view it was without fault, right number of participants,right number of days, great hotels and meals, nice driving distances and most of all great company. And the weather! Hopefully a similar trip can be organised for next year. While in advance we wondered why Brian was travelling it soon dawned on us how valuable it was to have him with us over and above just supplying the route books and booking the hotels. He could have taken the brunt of any complaints had they arisen but thanks to his good organisation they didn't."
Barry and Jacqueline: Dublin: Mercedes 280SL ( new clients )
"Just to note – I thought the Dordogne trip was great – allowed the group to co-mingle easily, choice of smaller (and much better) hotels and the driving was not too frantic. Two overnight stays on 2 consecutive days is also a big plus. Great organisation !! thanks"
