    "Andrew, we are at the airport at the end of our fabulous trip. Everything ran so smoothly. All our taxis were waiting for us as planned and each of them was as nice as could be. We left the phone at The Lamb Inn this morning, and felt that with everything organized so well, we didn't even need to use until calling Reg for the ride today. Thank you for everything. We enjoyed the walks immensely. "

    As you remember, you planned a one-off for us.  We had self-guided walks for a week from two centres for which you provided accommodations, routes and information, pick-up and deliveries.  It was a schedule that had potential for confusion yet it all went without a flaw.  The locations of Chipping Campden and Bourton-on-the-Water were wonderful. 

    After seeing the tourists and traffic in Moreton-in-Marsh, we were pleased you chose elsewhere for us to lodge.  The walks were each different and, with the exception of the heat, not taxing.  The guides were easy to follow once we realized there had been changes in some of the gates, but we were never seriously lost.  The walks took us through wonderful scenery, into charming villages and towns, past historically interesting places, and provided us with a wide variety of activities -- avoiding sheep droppings, watching birds, admiring gardens, pub hopping, visiting churches, follies, ruins, markets and learning about field gates.  It was more than we could have imagined.  The drivers of the cars that took us to the start of walks and picked us up at the end of the day, and who ferried our luggage when we moved location, were always on time, helpful and full of suggestions when asked, and because they were local and knew the area, gave good advice.

         The only "problem" we encountered was on the walk from Chipping Campden to Hidcote Manor and Gardens., where a section of the path that is over the railroad, leading to the farm from the cultivated area, is greatly overgrown with stinging nettles and is difficult to follow in places.  Otherwise, all other paths were clear and obvious.

    We very much enjoyed the entire experience and the fine weather, except for the heat, the entire week.  We had no specific expectations, never having been to this area of England, and found the entire experience worthwhile, enjoyable and greatly entertaining.  The care and attention you put into our trip was evident and we very much appreciate your work.

    My husband and greatly enjoyed our walking tour. It was our first and will not be our last. We liked the fact that it let us walk freely with a loose agenda, but provided enough guidance to get us there. Occasionally the directions were a little confusing, but we worked through it. We liked the variety of accommodations provided (a small inn on the outskirts of town, an old hotel right on the main street...), it was a nice taste of what's available. The area is beautiful and even the weather co-operated nearly 100%. We've recommended your company to several friends.
    AND you were the only company who managed to pull a trip together at the last moment for us which was much appreciated!
