Hi John and Jen,  we had a great 6 days! I know I’ve said it a few times to you already, but your planning was superb with the great variety of fantastic roads, the scenery & the hotels, particularly the 1st & 2nd!  The rest of the group were great & we all got on well. I can still hear Andy singing “I believe” in my ears & he messaged me just before the 1st penalty still saying he still believed! Thanks again to you both, I really enjoyed the whole tour & of course your company! Take care & see you next year if not before!”
