    James was an excellent tour guide. He was friendly, calm and very knowledgeable. He also had a great sense of humour and was very considerate. The itinerary was interesting and informative. The group size was small and friendly. I would thoroughly recommend touring with James again. Donna

    Have no idea why this is coming up poor overall - we had a fantastic trip away - couldn’t praise Aaron more highly- he was extremely helpful, an excellent driver and helpful- made everything run smoothly. Went above and beyond the call of duty.
