An interesting and fun group
“I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the dinners and their settings. They seemed so intimate and enjoyable – especially having the hosts involved. Such good company – really it was such an interesting and fun group and you added so much – am now reading my books for it – thanks so much.”
We did not think you could plan another tour as wonderful as the William Morris one last summer. But you did – our days in Scotland were pure delight. Many, many thanks.
Trips that are small and specialized
One gets very spoiled being on trips that are small and specialized, thoughtfully designed and well organized and I can’t imagine traveling any other way!
