As we departed the bus when we returned home - every one getting off the bus commented on the great tour. They were all amazed as to the information relayed by our guide. A lot of comments were rela.yed - that this was their best tour ever .One member from a neighbouring club who accompanied us on our tour just phoned me to get the information needed for their club to set up a similar tour . Members were impressed with every stop being on time and we arrived home ahead of schedule.
