The Western Front
I just wanted to write , on behalf of all 5 of us, to congratulate you for the arrangements you made, for our trip to The Somme . It is rare to find an organisation like yours, which attends in such great detail, to the needs of tourists, wishing to go and experience the Battle Fields of WW1, and in particular The Somme. Ralph Richard April 2014
All in all both myself and my Mum could not have been more pleased with all the notes etc. that you had supplied and found the whole trip to be simply amazing. . . Your notes added to this experience and without them the trip would not have been worth doing. Marcos Diez
Thanks for all the meticulous attention which must have gone into the compilation of the tour. (In one conversation, we showed a French (head) gardener your notes. He commented how informative they were, and asked for contact details....we gave him your business card....!) Robin and Christine Hawke
It was a profoundly moving and fascinating trip, which, thanks to your stunningly detailed and thorough organisation went without a hitch. . .
Your attention to detail is astonishing. . . You really did bring every location to life in the most fantastic way. (I loved your personal remarks dotted through the commentary). It was so marvellous to be able to do everything at our own pace and spend however long, or short, a time as we chose at the places we stopped.
Thank you so much for everything - for your help in the early stages sorting out what the best itinerary and approach would be, for organising all the bookings and for the brilliant support packs. I have raved about your company to everyone I've spoken to since my return (and will definitely write about it in the magazine) and I know at least one person who's definitely going to book through you as a result. I hope you get inundated with bookings!
