We arrived home late Wednesday after two great tours. Thanks to you, all our travel arrangements went like clockwork, including all flights and the Eurostar to Paris, which, in our opinion, is much better than flying. The Bard Tour was great fun, we enjoyed interacting with a varied group of fellow Bard supporters, and of course having Christopher and Vicky along was icing on the cake. Our tour director Peter Beaumont was very good. I don't think he had ever experienced a group like us before. Accommodations along the way were great. We even had a fire alarm at 3:00 AM on our second night in Edinburgh (smoke in kitchen, but we all had to evacuate - just another storey nowPJ | Scotland
