A Recent Review of this tour

Terrific tour. Ginette A is wonderful. Highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in English gardens and parks. Ride along the Thames was beautiful. Ginette included home made delicacies and tea in a beautiful park while we watched a rehearsal for a Shakespeare play.
