    I would recommend them to anyone wanting to just sit back and enjoy the trip. They handled everything, the group meals, the extra activities and the knowledge of the area.

    I thoroughly enjoyed everything about our tour! Beginning with our guide Peter who was very personable and knowledgeable. Our driver Brent was also a great guy to talk with. I very much liked the small bus/group environment. Made for a more personable experience. Might have been just a stoke of luck but our group all got along so well and we all became friends. The 12 day/11night tour I think was the perfect amount of time. Accommodations were top notch.

    The few items that I purchased I was very happy with. Avoca Mill was one that inspired me.
