    4.5 - Excellent

    The tour was very good, the accommodations do leave a bit to be desired. However....the tour guide TOM is a star!!!!! He was an excellent, excellent, excellent tour guide. Tom makes the tour from good to EXCELLENT. Tom was kind, patient, polite and knowledgable.

    3.5 - Good

    First I did not think this through - a garden tour in the fall, well bad idea! There was an expectation (perhaps ill-founded on the name on the tour) that we were staying in castles and manors, but did not. The first night hotel was good to average, but the second and third night the hotel was below par. Some of the things listed were closed, although Tommy our guide always made up for it. Best part about this was the small size and our guide Tommy, a well-informed, friendly awesome guy!
