All in all a very enjoyable break; Steve is a very professional tour manager whose knowledge and skills were evident from the start. He kept us informed and amused in equal measure. Hotel was also very good. Not surprised to discover that the Hampshire is part of the excellent Eden Hotels Group with whom we have stayed in the UK. Otherwise the visits were superb and were exactly as advertised. The additional excursion to the Mesdag Panorama was an especial highlight
We loved everything about the tour, and this despite not good weather. Sandra our Tour guide was first class, entirely sensible and deeply knowledgeable. We managed to fit in a huge amount and yet not feel too galleried-out. Many thanks.
