A Recent Review of this tour

We had an ambitious itinerary with Toby and he was very adept at seeing to it that we saw everything planned without our feeling rushed. The places he chose for us were just the kinds of places which as travelers we enjoy. I can highly recommend Toby to anyone wanting to see the real Edenborough.
