NEW FOR 2020 
Further to analysis of questionnaires received from many hundreds of our valued clients, we have decided to introduce two key changes to our tours in 2020:

1. The group size on all overseas tours is to be limited to a maximum of 35 or lower.

2. All overseas tours will include a welcome drink on the first evening, so that guests can get to know each other.

We hope that these changes will enhance our tours for all participants.
