Can I thank you for the most enjoyable visit to Reims and Champagne Country arranged for us. Everyone who took part thought that it was one of the best visits we had undertaken in the last few years and it was all down to Tailored Travel for being so thorough in the organisation and planning. We were pleased with the hotel and found Reims a lovely city. Our coach was good, being very comfortable and clean and our itinerary went like clockwise. Once again thanks for everything.
