Date of tour: May 2018

Thank you for all the hard work you put in to arrange our very successful trip to Northern Ireland. It was very much enjoyed by us all. The hotel was excellent, as were both our Blue Badge guides. Top marks for finding them! The weather was warm and sunny, a real bonus, - how did you manage it?! Thank you again.
