We feel we have experienced a tour of Provence unlike any other. Your “extra” efforts truly made a difference  -Mary Jane & Jay

Thank you for your charm, your wit, your patience, your history lessons, your guidance, your insight, your music – all of which helped to make the "Provence" tour a wonderful experience. We saw such beautiful scenery, ate so much delicious food, and saw some interesting samples of French culture – it was most definitely a worthwhile trip!  -Kristen

Your enthusiasm, humor and knowledge of history – plus all the fun surprises, gave us a vacation we will remember forever – We are so grateful to you – and are richer as persons – and as a family for having been with you as our tour guide. We find it very hard to pack and now return to reality!  -Jim, Kathy and Karen

Thank you so much for the wonderful trip and for sharing your expertise once again with us! All the places we visited were spectacular (Ireland) and the food was fabulous!  -Jean and Judy

“Mountain top” experience of these last eleven days! It was an A++ experience: interesting, fun, educational, many surprises and, to us, everything worked out so smoothly.  -Sunny

Thanks for your genuine efforts and great patience you displayed as our tour guide for the last 2 weeks. You certainly are a credit to yourself and your profession by always being prepared and knowledgeable about the sites ("off the beaten track" in Switzerland) we are visiting on a given day. You are the best tour guide we have ever had.  -Ebbie

You have spoiled us again with a delightful trip of sights, sounds and gastronomic delights found (in Provence). You are always appearing as happy, laid-back and patient. That makes it easy to be in a group when the leader is that way.  -Barb

Your (Provence) tour is just excellent, you should be proud! I’ve made a few trips with professional escorts and on a scale of 1 – 10, some of them received 11 ½; you are at least a 13!  -Fran

I had a really nice time on this trip, everyone has been so nice to me! The hotels have been great – my favorite was the castle! I just wish that I could stay longer and do more things in these beautiful countries! I just wanted to let you know that I had lots of fun and I am greatful that I got the chance to come with on this wonderful trip! You are the BEST!  -Steph (12 years old)

I’m tempted to spill a lot of words, but will just give you my heartfelt thanks for your kindness, your acute sensitivities, your infinite patience. These 14 days have touched me in many ways and I’m very grateful for all you’ve done.  -Inge

You’ve done it again! The (Ireland Tour) gave us perspectives to complement those of Tuscany. The world is indeed wondrous and mystical. Thank you for making all this possible to us.  -Jim & Carol

Thanks for another fun-filled, entertaining and educational tour. Ireland is indeed a beautiful place. I loved Provence too. Till next year!  -Bill & Kay

You obviously enjoy what you are doing and it shows in your wit, charm, compassion, love – I ran out of adjectives... (if I were a poet, I would write a sonnet!). My life is much richer…  -Verdie

This will go down as one of the wonderful times in our lives, thanks to your great planning.  -Ed & Beth
