‘ We travelled yesterday with our guide Ildi and driver Paul to Stonehenge and Bath. Ildi’s knowledge of the tour, sites and London are second to none and her bright and engaging personality made for an enjoyable day.  Even though we did experience typical English weather, it rained on and off all day, this was one of our most enjoyable yours to date. ‘

‘Tour guide Ildi is very nice and informative. She demonstrates well that she knows what she is talking about and also know and share some history about each place we are heading to. ‘
