We were very lucky with the group we travelled with , they were all lovely people, and we got on very well I thought.

A lot of this was down to Jenni, She was a fantastic tour leader who had real empathy with all of us ,was bubbly and full of fun ,serious when necessary and very organised.

We had a wonderful time and would definitely travel again with Tours Direct especially if Jenni was taking the group.
