"We want to thank you for a very enjoyable coach tour. Our tour would not have been as enjoyable without your guide. His personable style of humor, history and caring attitude contributed greatly to our vacation! He was able to call ahead to the hotels or restaurants where we were going to eat as a group. He would mention that there were 2 celiacs who needed gluten free meals. We didn't have to worry about getting sick!"
