    Holly was such a crack up and the best guide I’ve had on a tour! She was really involved, informative and went the extra mile with the Christmas festivities. Safe to say everyone in our amazing group enjoyed her company, and humour, 10/10!

    Holly should consider an alternate career in stand up comedy if guiding doesn't work out for her. Her jokes are 10/10, and matched with a great understanding of the areas plus a general willingness to have a good time with the crew. Love your work.
