We were completety happy with her care and attention. She has a lovely personality, and we would happily go on another tour with her.

Helen was great, never appeared hassled although she must have felt it at times. Always clear with instructions and showed concern for each of the group and very willing to sort any problems. Really well prepared and organised.
