Summer Tours are over / Motorhome & Caravan Show and X-MAS Markets tour to come
We have just arrived back home after two very successful tours to the Breathtaking Black Forest and to the Impressive Italian Lakes and Cities. On both tours we had fantastic weather and the two groups of both new and returning customers, some of whom have become great friends (some even deciding to book another tour together in 2019) had a great time, experienced great camaraderie and were happy knowing that there were friends to return to at the campsite after a busy day, with whom they could enjoy a lot of laughter and a glass or two of wine!
It was the second time we had offered the “Breathtaking Black Forest” tour and as expected everyone in the group enjoyed the stunning scenery and the mix of town, country and cultural activities and in particular this year the Black Forest Open Air Museum, and many even ventured into Switzerland to see the spectacular Rhine Falls. The weather was so good that on one of the non-driving days a group of 10 decided to tour part of Lake Constance on their bikes using the ferries to travel from one side of the lake to the other.
It was the first year we had offered a tour to the “Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities” and the feedback from the group at the end of the tour was more than positive. They enjoyed staying on the shores of both the large and smaller lakes in Northern Italy and also visiting Milan where we saw the “Last Supper”, the world famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci. We also had enough time to see the sights in the rest of the city. The tour also included a wine-tasting in the Franciacorta wine-making region which is famous for its Champagne style sparkling wines. We stayed directly on the vineyard aire,which had all the facilities needed for our motorhomes and we were able to use their swimming pool, which was a welcome treat at the end of a warm day. After the wine tasting, the group enjoyed a typical Italian meal with plenty of wine and only needed to walk a short distance to their motorhomes.
Even though the summer tours are now over, we still have some travelling to do. Next week we will leave for the Motorhome & Caravan Show in Birmingham which takes place from 16th-21st October at the NEC. If you would like to meet us personally for a chat about our 2019 tours, you can find us in Hall 9 Stand 32b and we will be happy to answer all your questions.
On 6th December our final tour this year begins and takes us to “Europe’s Best Christmas Markets” in Belgium, Holland, Germany and France! We still have a couple of places left and if you are interested in joining the tour, we will need to receive your booking by the beginning of November.
We hope to see you in Birmingham and wish you happy and safe touring!
