I have looked forward to travelling in Japan at Cherry Blossom time for many years and couldn’t have wished for a better introduction to Japan than what I experienced on this tour

Japan Cherry Blossom
Thank you very much for the group photograph. I think it shows just what a happy congenial group we were.
The programme was really excellent & ran like clockwork. George, as on the Scandinavian trip, was a delightful, efficient + modestly knowledgeable leader.
It really was a lovely trip, I wouldn't mind repeating it, minus a little bit of Wagner!!

We enjoyed the Sicily & Sardinia tour very much & Hugh looked after us extremely well.
The itinerary was very good .......The accommodation was good .... and the food at the wine tasting at Corleone was outstanding. The group was great to travel with.

All in all a great tour which, with Hugh’s expertise, ran very smoothly.

Anglo-French Discovery 2015
Thee historical and cultural lectures were all very worthwhile, particularly the government advisor in Vilnius, and Prof Anita Nicolesi (?) in Riga. In the university in Warsaw and the museum in Helsinki the talks were also very informative.
In St Petersburg, our guide Ksesia presented the history and I felt a little uncomfortable by the difficult questions about the current situation in Russia and the Ukraine asked by our group. She answered very well and honestly, but I was aware that she looked a little worried. She was still with us next day so all was well.!!! The age of bugged rooms seems definitely over!

Mark – Thank you for offering this superb program (and for choosing Hugh as Tour Leader – professional in every way, and totally dedicated to his role, caring for everyone and always good humored, calm and good company!).

The hotels were well chosen, with excellent locations, good facilities, substantial breakfasts and more than adequate lunches and dinners, especially when local cuisine was the specialty.

The guides were delightful, well informed and intensely proud of their country’s history and heritage in every place/village. The group melded together with generally good humor, looking after one another as much as possible, at meals and in the bus seating, as well as street walking. I wish you every success with your plans for Golden Compass.

We both have very happy memories of our fascinating time with you (Hugh Morgan), which gave us a taste and an insight into the Baltic States, which we could have had no other way. We learned much, enjoyed the company of our fellow adventurers who were themselves an interesting group, and your light hand on the reins made for an altogether most enjoyable experience for us both.

Vraie France, May 2014
A big thank you for Vraie France, we thoroughly enjoyed it all. Great programme - intelligently and thoughtfully set up, first rate accommodation, wonderful food, and the wine/s of course were excellent.

Louise (Program Leader) exceeded our expectations, and that was no easy task, as we had received extremely favourable comments about her from fellow travellers prior to the trip. She's a gem.

Loved the itinerary and the hotels and meals were of a good standard. Highlights of this tour for me included all the Impressionist paintings in France and Holland, the wonderful fountain display at Versailles and the peaceful meandering along the canals in the floating gardens at Amiens.We had a lovely group and I think everyone would consider using Golden Compass again.
