Tour Reviews

Reviews for Amsterdam, Bruges & the Keukenhof Flower Festival

Date of tour: May 2011

We have just returned from the trip organised by your company to Car Collections in Belgium and the Netherlands. We had an excellent trip and the hotel in The Hague was very good. We would particularly like to thank and praise our Tour Manager Lance who was easily the best we have encountered in many years of various holidays. He was helpful and good humoured throughout. Provided lots of information and assistance as well as spoiling us all with chocolates and biscuits. A real credit to the company. Our driver Gary was safe and attentive and they made an excellent pairing.
