Tricia & Alan Cambs Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 8. October 2018
This is the second time we have rented a motorhome and travelled with MandA Tours. It was a stunning tour! Fabulous scenery, fabulous lakes and picturesque towns. We thoroughly enjoyed it 🙂
We especially liked the pace of this tour with several 2 night stops giving us time to explore the areas we visited. We loved visiting both smaller as well as larger lakes with the different towns and cities along their shores. The added opportunities to explore islands by boat was a treat! We also thought that visiting Milan was a good addition midway to give a different perspective and we enjoyed having the guided tour as we learnt so much more. All in all a great balance was struck between traveling and exploring. Thank you.
Jane & Mark Warwickshire Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 28. June 2018
Amazing really does describe this tour.
We liked the campsites, the scenery and the short drives. Of all the great campsite restaurants, we especially liked the restaurant at the campsite in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The roadbook and the location of the campsites was excellent and the coordinates worked really well in the sat nav. Nothing was too much trouble for Michael - if he didn't know the answer, he would find out. Many thanks for all your help.
We had a wonderful holiday and will be back on another trip - maybe next year!
Mark and Jane
Joyce & Terry Suffolk Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 22. September 2018
This was our second holiday with Manda Tours and we enjoyed the stunning scenery and the good selection of interesting places to visit - we particularly enjoyed spending the day at the Black Forest Open Air Museum.
During the tour we had a mechanical problem and our tour leaders, Michael & Audrey - thanks to their knowledge of the region and language skills - helped us twice to get things sorted out!
Ann & Peter Kent Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 27. July 2018
This was our second tour with MandA Tours and was just as enjoyable. Their road book is to motorhome touring what Michael Portillo’s Bradshaw’s Guide is to railway journeys, he tells you where to go, what to see and where to stay and it is real motorhome touring - thank you Michael! If you breakdown or get sick, Michael can sort that out too.
Jacqui & Richard Monmouthshire Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 8. October 2018
Thank you Michael and Audrey for another excellent tour. We saw and did things we would not have done without your help and advice. We particularly enjoyed the various boat trips, the art tour in Milan was very special, and the wine-tasting and meal at the vineyard were superb, as was the welcome dinner. The three night stay at the campsite on Lake Garda at the end of the tour was wonderful and there was plenty to do.
Sue & Steve Leicestershire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 30. October 2018
We loved everything about the tour and had a great time. We enjoyed the company of the other participants and I think this is also one of the reasons why people like coming on escorted tours - to meet other like-minded people and have get togethers - it helps the shy to mix!
Wendy, Tony & Richard Norfolk Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 26. June 2018
All our expectations for the tour were well and truly exceeded. We were delighted with the quality of the sites and the friendliness of the people. With the forward planning every day has offered exceptional opportunities to discover so much about each area ,more than we could ever have hoped to achieve on our own. The help and support from Michael has been exceptional. Travelling as a group has been enjoyable, whilst at the same time it was ideal to be able to visit attractions of our own choice and at our own pace.
We would like to thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks. The attention to detail was excellent and the information provided was comprehensive. We thoroughly enjoyed driving through Germany and looking at the exceptional scenery, especially knowing that you were there in case of any problems.
Thanks again for a fantastic fortnight. See you next year on the Rhine and Moselle Tour!
Wendy, Tony and Richard
Margaret, Melvyn & Tilley Cumbria Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 9. July 2017
As it was our first time on the continent with the van, we found Michael to be very helpful, reassuring and supportive. We now feel able go it alone, but will do another tour - just need to decide which one! We enjoyed the company of the others on the tour.
Jacqui & Richard Monmouthshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 30. September 2019
Once again, a huge thank you Audrey and Michael for an excellent tour. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour. We thought the Black Forest area was particularly beautiful and exceeded our expectations. One of the many highlights was the Rhine Falls of Schaffhausen in Switzerland and being able to swim in the Rhine at Stein am Rhein! We loved the visit to the Hymer Plant and museum (but we are biased)!
Thank you for all your hard work and for making our holiday so special.
Margaret, Mel & Tilley Cumbria Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 26. June 2018
"Amazing" really does describe this tour - the scenery was stunning!
After having travelled with MandA Tours last year on the tour to the Rhine and Moselle, we wanted to see some other part of Germany. As we gained a lot of confidence during last year's trip, we decided this year that we would not need the Calais pick-up service and we ,made our own way to the start of the tour.
Knowing from last year the amount of detail you put into the roadbook, including the GPS coordinates for the large variety of things to do, we were very much looking forward to this trip, and we were not to be disappointed. As last year we travelled with some lovely people, and the care and attention you gave us during the tour was outstanding. Thanks to you Mel achieved his ambition of driving a 24% incline!
We hope to travel with you again next year, probably to Spain.
Thanks for a lovely holiday.
Margaret and Mel
Alice & Clive Berkshire Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 8. October 2018
This was our 3rd tour with MandA tours and this time we particularly enjoyed the low daily driving distances and the location of the campsites. We often had lakeside pitches with spectacular views over the lakes and mountains and on the larger lakes the campsites had been chosen so that is was easy to use the ferries to get from one island or town to another. The tour included an excellent wine-tasting and meal at a vineyard and we stayed overnight at their own aire which had full motorhome facilities and a swimming pool which the group could use freely. The last 3 nights were spent on Lake Garda making it a nice relaxing way to end the tour.
Jean & John Devon Tour: Germany's Romantic Road 10. October 2017
The campsites and their locations were good and we really enjoyed the highlights of the tour including the welcome dinner in the brewery, the wine tasting and the cable car ride up to Tegelberg mountain. The availability , friendliness and knowledge of our tour guide were excellent and there was always a good friendly vibe.
Jen & John Leicestershire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 18. July 2019
This was our second tour with Michael and Audrey, our first one was to the Black Forest which was excellent. We loved the Rhine and Moselle, the campsites were very good, access to the cities, towns and villages was easy and camping by the riverside was a great experience. The Rhine in Flames with dinner and boat trip was an excellent highlight and we would highly recommend it. Thanks again Michael and Audrey, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Mary & Dave Wirral Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 17. December 2018
We really enjoyed the tour and would have liked to stay longer at some of the locations. Thank you to everyone for their company and to Michael and Audrey for all the work and thought you put into this excellent tour – it was a great holiday.
Ann & Tony Staffordshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 29. September 2018
We enjoyed the whole tour! Our favourite places were the pretty town of Stein am Rhein and the Rhine Falls of Schaffhausen. We are already looking forward to the “Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers” tour next year!
Sue & Peter Somerset Tour: Springtime in Holland 3. May 2017
We would like to thank you for all your attention and the good company, we had a great time. The excellent research you did gave us plenty of activities to choose from, with the flexibility to do our own thing.
We now have so many highlights to talk about with our friends. It definitely was a great way to see Holland in Springtime!
Jackie & Geoff Hampshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 26. September 2018
MandA Tours got it right! Driving in the Black forest was very enjoyable and there was plenty of wild life and interesting places. I am sure that on our own, and without your guidance, we would not have ventured into many of the small towns or visited the lakes and other points of interest.
Linda & Rob South Yorkshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 19. July 2019
We loved the route and scenic drives and especially enjoyed the campsites that were right next to the river. We liked the diverse cities and towns and the on route points of interest that were suggested in the road book. Thought the number of units was just right and enjoyed EVERYONE’s company.
Lynda, Terry & Rosie Greater Manchester Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 8. October 2018
We had an excellent holiday. The support and advice from Audrey and Michael was outstanding and it was great travelling with others, but we also enjoyed having plenty of flexibility to do what we wanted. During the tour there was a really good mix of town, country and cultural activities. We especially enjoyed the welcome dinner, the wine & schnapps tasting and the visit to the Hymer plant.
Chris & Ian Gloucestershire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 19. September 2017
We have toured around countries before by ourselves and thought we had seen a lot, but touring with MandA Tours made the experience so much better.
We got to know the country, the people and their way of life much better and saw things which we otherwise would have missed.
Thank you MandA for the experience.
Christopher Essex Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 9. July 2017
An excellent tour in all respects, a perfect balance of travel distances, locations and interesting places to visit. Keep doing what you're doing!!
Thanks for a great holiday!
Margaret, Mel & Tilly Cleveland Tour: Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast 7. July 2019
We really enjoy travelling with Michael & Audrey. The tours are always well organized and give us plenty of opportunity to explore on our own. The highlights of this tour for us were the Picos d’Europa area (the roads and views were spectacular), the beaches (particularly for Tilly), Santiago de Compostela and the tapas bars in San Sebastian.
Yvonne & Martyn West Midlands Tour: Picturesque Provence 10. June 2018
This was our first time travelling with Michael & Audrey - what a delightful, friendly, knowledgeable couple they are! Every detail of the tour is presented in a friendly organized fashion. The campsites were ideally situated for the many suggested points of interest along the route. Having Michael & Audrey available is a perfect balance, but also everyone on the tour was very friendly.
Looking forward to the Italian Lakes tour later in the year.
Marie, Sharron, Paul & Leela Northamptonshire Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 22. December 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, had a marvelous time at each location, particularly Bruges and Rothenburg ob der Tauber, and would have liked to have stayed longer. Everything was suitable for a 9-meter motorhome and Audrey & Michael were the perfect hosts. Looking forward to another trip.
Joyce & Terry Suffolk Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 18. July 2018
The tour was well organised with a good mix of driving and “rest” days. The booked highlights were excellent and we enjoyed the riverside camping and could have stayed longer on some of the campsites. We have been on tours with other companies but Michael was the best tour leader we have experienced – always available, friendly and took time to answer our questions.
Wendy & Andy West Yorkshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 21. July 2019
The tour was well organized with support if required. The “highlights”, the boat trip during Rhine in Flames and the wine-tasting at the vineyard, were excellent and the social events very enjoyable.
Sheila & Michael Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 5. October 2019
This was our first experience of this type of holiday and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to travel in a motorhome. We felt more secure and enjoyed the benefits of travelling with an experienced tour company like “MandA Tours”. It was comforting to know someone was on hand for support when needed. We saw and visited places we probably would not have done on our own and it was a great way to meet people.
Cathy & Mervyn Norfolk Tour: Picturesque Provence 5. June 2018
This was our second holiday with MandA Tours and we would certainly consider travelling with them again, perhaps next year to Spain.
The booking process was excellent, as was our tour guide, the roadbook and the location of the campsites. We particularly enjoyed not having to plan much ourselves – all the places we went to were very interesting and we would have missed a lot if we had travelled on our own.
Thank you for an enjoyable tour.
Dianne & Geoffrey East Ayrshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 26. September 2017
Thank you for a great holiday. We enjoyed driving in the Black Forest - the route and the campsites were good and the availability, friendliness and knowledge of our tour guide were excellent. If we travel to Europe again we would definitely use Manda Tours again.
Ann & David Inverness Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 27. June 2019
We loved the tour with its outstanding scenery. Being on an escorted tour provides assurance and confidence in so many ways and nothing is ever too much trouble for Michael and Audrey. We are particularly grateful that you were able to arrange to have our windscreen replaced at the Dethleffs plant in Isny after a crack appeared at the beginning of the tour. Thanks again to all for helping to make such a fabulous holiday. Keep it going guys!
Janet & Richard West Yorkshire Tour: Germany's Romantic Road 10. October 2017
We both really enjoyed the holiday and would have liked to stay longer on some of the sites. The group was really friendly and your service and support excellent!!!
Wendy & Derek Hampshire Tour: Exciting Eastern Germany 23. April 2019
This was our second holiday with MandA Tours, and both this tour, and the Amazing Alpine Roads tour last year, were truly exceptional! It was great to see Eastern Germany, which would not have been easy to do on our own. Being able to fall back on the MandA team for support and guidance was second to none. Thank you for a great time.
Gill & Dave Gloucestershire Tour: Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast 13. June 2019
This was our second tour with MandA Tours. We particularly enjoyed the Wine-tasting in the Rioja and the cable car ride in the Picos d’Europa.
Vicki, Mike, Poppy & Duddley Hampshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 6. October 2019
We loved the sights in the Black Forest, the mountain scenery and little villages. We particularly enjoyed Lake Titisee and the campsite there – there was so much to explore.
Lynn, Ian & Wilson Derbyshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 18. July 2019
We had a very good time. The tour was well organized, and Michael and Audrey were always on hand to help if necessary. Will definitely book again, maybe to the Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast next year!
Marilyn & Gary Surrey Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 5. October 2019
The tour was wonderful, and we saw places and things we wouldn’t have seen without you both – thank you. Already looking forward to the Italian tour next year!
Jacqui & Richard Monmouthshire Tour: Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast 17. June 2019
This is our third tour with MandA tours and as usual the holiday was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the town of San Sebastian and the Rioja wine-tasting. Another highlight of the tour for us was the Picos de Europa and driving through the mountains was wonderful.
Sue & Clive Oxfordshire Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 21. December 2018
Thank you for another exclusive tour! Although the weather was not great, you gave us plenty of choices for things to do and the rest of the group was excellent company. We look forward to seeing you again next year on the Black Forest and Italian tours.
Lyndis, Richard & Jarvis Norfolk Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 9. July 2017
The information provided in the roadbook and Michaels 7:30pm meetings were excellent - allowing everyone to make their own choices as to how to spend their day. We had the reassurance that our tour guide was always available and willing to assist us with any problems - no matter large or small - and enjoyed the friendliness of our tour companions.
We feel special that we are allowed to keep the trusty roadbook as a reminder of our wonderful MandA holiday.
Gill & David Pembrokeshire Tour: Exciting Eastern Germany 23. April 2019
We enjoyed the tour very much. The roadbook was excellent and the suggestions on places to visit given in it were a great help. The interaction between the MandA team and ourselves was just right – and their friendliness, knowledge and good humour was great. There was nothing they wouldn’t do to help us have an enjoyable and full experience.
Janet & Martin Kent Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 27. June 2019
This was our first trip with Michael and Audrey and we didn’t really know what to expect and were concerned that we wouldn’t get to see much – but we shouldn’t have worried. Having the shorter journeys between campsites meant we could stop with the motorhome at many of the main attractions, or with bus stops close to all sites, we could use public transport or take bikes to the other attractions. We saw everything we wanted to and at our own pace.
Having the benefit of travelling with both a German- and English-speaking couple was added security if there was to be any problems. The route we took was just amazing – the Bavarian countryside and mountains are so beautiful and there was so much to see and do. This has to go on everyone’s bucket list. It was just fabulous. We will definitely go to the area again but not before we do another tour with Michael and Audrey.
Thank you so much both of you – we had an amazing holiday.
Christopher Essex Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 26. June 2018
The tour was exceptional and brilliantly organized. The excellent and accurate information in the roadbook allowed for some extraordinary drives through the mountains. We stayed at primo ***** sites with great facilities.
This was my second holiday with MandA Tours and last year I really enjoyed the Rhine and Moselle Tour, and although I didn't think it could be possible, I ask myself: was this tour to the Alps almost better?
Thank you for a wonderful and unforgettable trip.
Gina & David Warwickshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 9. July 2017
The tour covered a very pretty part of Germany. The welcome dinner and highlights were excellent and the Rhine in Flames evening was magical. Bernkastel-Kues is probably the most prettiest town we have ever visited! The chosen route was also excellent, as was the tour guide. Thank you for making it such a wonderful trip.
Joyce & Terry Suffolk Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 3. July 2019
The name of the tour says it all. There are plenty of places to visit and cable cars to master! Once again, a very enjoyable holiday and we would like to thank Michael and Audrey for dealing with all our queries and generally making our holiday a very enjoyable experience. We always feel that you can deal with any difficulties we may experience. We found the programme mix was good and the scenic routes fantastic.
Joy & Dennis Dorset Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 26. September 2017
Just a line to thank you personally for a most enjoyable "Breathtaking Black Forest" tour, which we really enjoyed. Good company, wonderful scenery and Black Forest Gateaux - what else could anyone possibly want?! Your planning and organisation was exceptional allowing us to relax and enjoy the experience.
We hope to join you again one day and look forward to meeting you again.
Joy & Dennis
Sue & Steve Somerset Tour: Leisurely Loire Valley 31. May 2019
This was our second tour with Michael. It was well organised and we certainly saw the Chateaux of the Loire. The roadbook was good with lots of places of interest to choose from. The welcome dinner and all subsequent meals were very good, the wine-tasting was excellent and the “Boule de Fort” game was a lot of fun!!! We enjoy travelling with a group and having others to share experiences with and will certainly travel again with MandA Tours.
Angela & Colin Leicestershire Tour: Springtime in Holland 23. May 2017
You gave us a very good introduction to the culture and lifestyle of the areas visited and provided an excellent overall service and a good mix of suggested points of interest. All of the campsites were well chosen, for the areas visited. We particularly enjoyed the Tulip Festival Parade and the Keukenhof Gardens.
Thank you for all your care and attention. We truly enjoyed your company and are sure we will meet up again.
Wendy, Tony & Richard Norfolk Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 26. July 2019
This was our 2nd tour with MandA tours. Michael and Audrey are a lovely couple, and nothing ever seems too much trouble. They are excellent hosts and are extremely knowledgeable of the areas they tour. It certainly takes the strain of organizing and booking suitable venues and places to see. We look forward to our next trip to the Italian Lakes in September.
Daphne & Michael Cumbria Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 20. October 2019
We enjoyed the tour and the campsites were excellent. You both did a perfect job and we would be happy to travel with you again in the full and certain knowledge that any issues would be quickly resolved – well done.
Sue & Peter Somerset Tour: Exciting Eastern Germany 26. April 2019
It has been a lovely hassle-free holiday. The campsites were close to the towns with good public transport available to get there. We particularly enjoyed the wine-tasting and the visit to Colditz Castle. Michael and Audrey have been good hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond to answer any queries. We are just sorry that the tour had to end!
Jane & Mike North Yorkshire Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 26. June 2018
The tour was well organised and we visited some great places during the two weeks. We particularly appreciated the support and help from Michael during the tour as he was always there to help when needed. In our case we had a problem with our fresh water tank and Michael made many phone calls (in German) and resolved our problem. Even before the tour started he gave us suggestions of sites to stay at on our way from the UK to the beginning of the tour and sites on our way back from Austria.
The sites we stayed at during the tour had first class facilities and restaurants where we had several enjoyable lunches and dinners, often together with other members of the group who were all very friendly.
We will recommend MandA Tours to all our friends.
Mike and Jane
Alice & Clive Berkshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 9. July 2017
The tour was excellent value for money. We enjoyed the general location itself on the Rhine and Moselle. The route was excellent and we liked the varied locations, the ease of travel and short distances between sites.
The roadbook and suggested POI's on the way made it easy for us to choose what we wanted to visit (and what we didn't!). The Rhine in Flames and the wine tasting and dinner were excellent.
Thank you for a great tour.
June & Peter Worcester Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 26. September 2017
We really enjoyed the holiday. The campsites, the route and itinary were all excellent. Your knowledge was helpful throughout the tour and the places you suggested to visit were well worth going to.
We would definitely use Manda Tours again in the future.
Dianne & Geoff East Ayrshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 29. July 2018
Another fantastic holiday with MandA Tours!
Francine & Terry Shropshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 18. July 2018
The Rhine in Flames evening was a highlight as was the meal and wine-tasting in Trier. Michael was a very friendly, approachable and helpful tour leader and was much appreciated by the group. The welcome dinner was excellent and the evening helped everyone to get to know each other and the group gelled very quickly.
Thanks Michael for organising our SOG installation!
Wendy, Tony & Richard Norfolk Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 3. November 2019
Michael and Audrey’s extensive knowledge of the places of interest and tour routes resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable tour. We very much appreciate the time and support. Overall – another great tour with you both. Very relaxed and well organised. Thank you.
Melanie & Rupert West Yorkshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 9. July 2017
The tour was excellent from the booking process and service before the tour, through to the campsites, information material and highlights. The Moselle Valley in particular was beautiful.
Michael, our tour leader, showed great commitment to organising and would "go the extra mile" to assist with any problems (in our case finding new tyres at a garage on route after a puncture)! His knowledge and suggestions always meant we would have an interesting day.
We also really enjoyed the community spirit with the other guests who were all friendly and helpful.
Alice & Clive Berkshire Tour: Exciting Eastern Germany 24. April 2019
This was our fourth holiday with MandA tours, and we really enjoyed it, and would like to thank the MandA Tours team for all their efforts. We saw some amazing towns and castles and were able to make excursions into Poland and Prague. We also really enjoyed Potsdam – there was so much to see and do and we were able to take the train from there to Berlin.
Maxine, John, Millie & Lily Essex Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 3. January 2019
This was our first holiday with MandA Tours, and we had a wonderful time. Thank you for everything and to everyone for making this a great first tour for us. Really looking forward to the Rhine & Moselle Rivers tour in June ?.
Cathy & Mervyn Norfolk Tour: Germany's Romantic Road 10. October 2017
We wanted a holiday with no worry. Everything was sorted out for us, even taking the motorhome to the garage when something was wrong.
Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday.
Heulwen & Jeff West Glamorgan Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 12. July 2016
We would like to thank you for a wonderful tour of the Majestic Rhine and Moselle, to the top quality camp sites and pitches that you chose in the loveliest locations.
We were impressed by the information that you gave us on every place we visited and the multiple choice of what to see on route, right down to the very last detail, from where we could get fresh bread to the street maps, markets, bus routes, bicycle paths etc.
The quality of the highlights, The Rhine in Flames and the Wine tasting at the vineyard were fantastic. We will definitely be back on another tour next year …
Susan & Peter Gwent Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 11. July 2017
We were impressed by the professionalism of Michael, our tour guide, his knowledge of the region and the way he communicated with the group. We particularly liked that the daily driving distances, once we had arrived in the region were kept low, allowing us plenty of time to sightsee or relax at the campsites. We really enjoyed the company and the compatibility of the group. Our favorite place was Bernkastel-Kues on the Moselle and would have liked to stay longer.
Vicky, Michael, Duddly & Poppy Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 28. December 2018
The tour was very enjoyable and well organized, and Michael and Audrey were great hosts. Thank you for all your hospitality on our 1st MandA tour and we are already looking forward to our next tour in 2019!
Heulwen & Jeff West Glamorgan Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 1. October 2017This is our second tour with MandA Tours and just like our first we had a wonderful time. The attention to detail on places to visit was brilliant, as Michael and Audrey had done all the hard work it just left us to relax and enjoy. Our visit to the Hymer Plant and Museum along with the Wine tasting, Brewery and Stein tours was great as we had our own personal translator Michael with us.We would like to thank Michael for rescuing us from our sat nav, and the laughter from all the new friends we made on this holiday.Jeff and Heulwen
Marney & Bob Herefordshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 23. July 2018
We enjoyed the tour and it was always great to know that at the end of a busy day sightseeing that our pitches for the night were booked and waiting for us, most of them in beautiful locations on the river or among the vineyards.
Jane, Mark & Luna Warwickshire Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 1. November 2019
This tour was a great taste of the Italian lakes and highlighted areas, we would like to return to for a longer stay. The views from the Iseo campsite were fabulous and most of the sites were within a reasonable walking distance of the local towns. We know some enjoyed the city side of the tour, but our personal preference would have been for extra days at the smaller lakes as an alternative. But as we have already discussed, you can’t please all the people all the time! Overall we have had a great time and Luna (the dog) really enjoyed herself too!
Carolyn, Andrew & Louie Monmouthshire Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 8. October 2018
This was our second tour with MandA Tours and introduced us to a country which we haven't toured in before. We came to see Italian Lakes and were certainly not disappointed. More than enough options were provided for visiting places of interest, with detailed notes and directions. For us the highlights were using the ferries, most of which called in near the selected campsites and enabled us to visit some of the beautiful islands, towns and botanical gardens in other parts of the lakes. We enjoyed the delightful company of the other members of the tour and were pleased to be welcomed at each campsite by Michael and Audrey, who directed us to our pitch.
Lorraine & Stephen North Yorkshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 21. July 2018
This was our first holiday with MandA Tours and we would certainly travel with them again, maybe next year to the “Alpine Roads”. The booking process was easy, the location of the camp sites was excellent, and Michael, our tour guide, was always available and ready to help. The road book was very detailed and we believe, we did and saw things on the tour that we would not have known about had we been left to our own resources. The group was very friendly and supportive.
Liz & Martin Greater Manchester Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 15. October 2019
We have been on one of your tours before and knew what to expect. We were not disappointed. The camaraderie that is encouraged, helped us a lot as I am disabled and was able to take part in many of the activities because of the help of the other tour members – We had a fabulous time!
Helen & Bill Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 25. September 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip in the company of fellow motorhomers. We really liked the opportunity to socialise with other like-minded people whilst still having the independence to visit the sights of our choice along the way. We were very happy that we were able to tour with our dog and enjoyed visiting the POIs recommended in the roadbook, many of which we would never have visited without Michael’s knowledge. It was a great trip, on which we learned a lot more about making the most of our motorhome and, more importantly, made some wonderful friends.
Sue & Clive Oxfordshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 4. November 2019
It was an excellent tour and as always you both go the extra mile – thank you. We particularly enjoyed the countryside and visiting the smaller towns in the Black Forest like Schiltach, Wolfach and Hausach and thoroughly enjoyed Lake Titisee.
Carolyn, Andrew & Louis Monmouthshire Tour: Picturesque Provence 22. June 2017
We were interested to improve our knowledge of this area of France, and this we feel we have achieved in a very enjoyable way. You were very attentive and conscious of our desires and needs throughout, providing us with many sightseeing options to choose from.
Thank you for a great holiday, the lovely memories and the introduction to WhatsApp 🙂
Sue & Clive Oxfordshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 19. July 2018
The tour was exceptional and there was a great friendly atmosphere created by its organisation. Michael goes above and beyond what could be expected to make the experience memorable and we thank him for it. The road book was so comprehensive with some many alternative choices that we will need to revisit the area in order to take them all in! The Rhine in Flames evening was excellent and the Wine-Tasting in Trier was exceptional. We have a very large motorhome and did not have any problems on the route or any of the campsites and would certainly recommend the tours to others.
Sue & Howard Herefordshire Tour: Springtime in Holland 7. May 2018
This is our second time travelling with MandA Tours and once again the tour was very well organized. The route, welcome dinner and highlights were excellent and we had plenty of opportunity to visit places on route, because the driving distances between stops were kept to a minimum. Most of all we enjoyed the friendliness and availability of our tour guide Michael who always provided extra information when required.
Kath & Bob Glamorgan Tour: Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast 24. June 2019
This was our first tour with MandA Tours and we would certainly consider travelling with them again. It was an unexpectedly beautiful area to tour which was complemented by the personal kindness and attentiveness of Michael and Audrey. We also enjoyed the friendly and relaxed group atmosphere. For us the highlights of the tour were the Picos d’Europa , San Sebastian and the visit to the vineyard and wine-tasting in the Rioja.
Margaret & Bernard Kildare Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 29. September 2019
The roadbook combined with the evening meetings was great and allowed us to pace ourselves and choose what we wanted to visit. We want to thank you both for your attention and humour and would definitely consider travelling with you again.
Wendy & Derek Hampshire Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 26. June 2018
The tour was organized very well which made the whole trip very comfortable. We felt welcome from the moment we met Michael in Calais and throughout the two weeks. The tour was excellent in all respects and we cannot fault any part of it
Thank you for a wonderful holiday. "We will be back!" The Rhine & Moselle tour or the Spanish trip are our favorites for next year.
Derek & Wendy
Heulwen & Jeff West Glamorgan Tour: Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast 4. June 2019
Another excellent tour by Michael and Audrey to the Spanish Northern Coast. We had a lovely time with friends from past tours and made new friends on this tour. The organized visit to the vineyard in the Rioja and the winetasting was brilliant and we really enjoyed the cable car ride in the Picos de Europa. The drive through the mountains was breathtaking with views to die for.
Sue & Clive Oxfordshire Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 15. October 2019
We have enjoyed this tour and visited many new places. The Milan tour was excellent, but a break halfway would have been beneficial. Our favourite sites were on Lake Iseo (6-star) & the vineyard. Bardolino on lake Garda is also a lovely place.
Marion & Ian Leicestershire Tour: Picturesque Provence 6. June 2018
The general organisation of the tour was very helpful and we were impressed by Michael, who was always available and understanding of our needs. He knew the region very well and with his language skills was always ready to help. The roadbook was excellent and included all the information about the campsites, directions, points of interest and we liked not having to think and plan for ourselves. The other participants on the tour were a good group of people to mix with
Ena & Peter London Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 26. September 2019
We were impressed with the tour, your leadership and responsiveness and the briefings in the evenings were beneficial. You succeeded in bonding the group which added to all the enjoyment. Well done both and thank you.
Alice & Clive Berkshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 17. October 2018
This was the second time we have travelled with you and we really like your concept of moving on every day / every 2nd day and having the freedom to choose each day what we want to do and what we want to visit.
Moya & Ken Hampshire Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 10. January 2017
We had a really good time on our tour made all the more enjoyable by the care and attention you gave us, your knowledge of the destinations and undoubted research really showed us what a Christmas Market in Germany and Europe has to offer.
Moya and I will look forward to reading any blogs and newsletters you may send about forthcoming tours and we will look to booking with you again in the future.
Once again many thanks and we wish you and your family a very happy Christmas
Ailsa & Gavin Stirlingshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 17. July 2019
All the places we visited were fantastic and we especially enjoyed the wine-tasting on the Moselle and the scenic village of Bernkastel-Kues.
Thank you for a fantastic holiday, shared stories and everybody’s friendship. We would certainly travel with you again.
Mags & Peter Bedfordshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 19. July 2018
We liked the road book with all the information about places of interest and also the sat-nav coordinates were very helpful. We particularly liked Bacharach and the fisher quarter of Saarburg.
The highlights of the tour for us were being able to visit Trier and the “Rhine in Flames” which was excellent. We wanted to finish off our holiday of 6 years ago which we had to cut short due to breakdown problems. On this tour we have seen some lovely sights and great villages which in all honesty we would never have known about or visited without the information given to us by Michael.
Sue & Howard Herefordshire Tour: Germany's Romantic Road 10. October 2017
We visited interesting places and saw some spectacular scenery, especially at Schwangau, but most important to us was the friendly and helpful guidance from Michael and Audrey.
Susan, Peter & Molly Co-Durham Tour: Leisurely Loire Valley 27. May 2019
This was our third tour with Manda Tours and won’t be our last. The tour was good and, as always, Michael and Audrey were very professional and informative.
Gill & David West Midlands Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 26. September 2017
The campsites were good, the highlights, including the visit to the Hymer Plant and the steam train ride were excellent and we met some great people. The friendliness of our tour guide, the planning and organisation of the tour and his knowledge of the region took all the stress out of a touring holiday.
Jacci & Graham Merseyside Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 10. February 2019
We have had a great 1sttour - thank you – and a summer tour is on our list! We will be recommending you to our friends at The Motor Caravanners’ Club.
Ann & David Inverness Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 20. July 2018
Firstly we would like to thank Michael for a fabulous tour – it was our first with MandA Tours but will certainly not be the last. The trip gave us so much confidence in travelling abroad and we probably would have missed a lot of the culture and sights if we had travelled independently. The group was great company, it was easy to join in, and wonderful friendships have been formed. The information in the road book was very detailed and allowed us to choose what we wanted to do.
Mary & Ronnie North Yorkshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 21. July 2019
This was the perfect tour to introduce us to the continent. We have loved the welcome and friendliness of the hosts, Michael and Audrey – nothing was too much trouble and Michael has the patience of a saint. The locations and campsites were excellent – feel very happy to have seen such a beautiful part of Germany. The camaraderie “on tour” was very special – lovely people and I think we interacted with everyone over the two weeks and enjoyed their company. The roadbook was very useful and gave exact co-ordinates for sites, parking and places of interest. Thank you Michael and Audrey, for designing and executing this wonderful tour…. It was our first, but hopefully not our last!
Stephanie & Nigel Derbyshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 29. September 2019
Michael & Audrey have a very friendly approachable style and often went out of their way to help and advise and speaking German helped on several occasions. We had the right number of motorhomes on our trip which made getting to know one another quick and easy. Coming on one of these tours is ideal for those looking for their first trip in a motorhome abroad or for those who enjoy the company of others who also enjoy their motorhoming. Thoroughly recommended.
Sharron & Gordon Co Durham Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 11. July 2017
We couldn't fault anything on the tour. We particularly liked the campsites being near to places to visit and not having to take the motorhome off site. We also enjoyed very much the companionship of our new friends during the tour.
Our tour guide Michael went the extra mile to help and provide a great holiday. 🙂
Jean & John Devon Tour: Picturesque Provence 7. June 2018
The booking process and service before the start of the tour was excellent. As we had travelled with MandA Tours before, we expected Michael to be very knowledge about the region, ready to help at all times and able to speak the language and we were not disappointed! The town of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie was well worth a visit and we would have liked to spend more time there and in the Luberon Region but understand there is only so much that can be put in to a 14-day tour! Maybe we will travel with them again to the Italian Lakes.
Yvonne & Martyn West Midlands Tour: Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast 22. July 2019
This was our third tour with Michael and Audrey – and once again a delightful tour! We really enjoyed the company of the lovely, friendly and supportive group of like-minded motorhome travellers. The campsites were ideally situated for the many suggested points of interest along the route. Our favorite area was Galicia located in the north-west of the Iberian Peninsula where we visited Cape Finisterre, A Coruna and Santiago de Compostela, although we also loved the vast beaches in Asturias and the gorgeous city of San Sebastian. A high point (literally) of the tour was driving through the Picos de Europa snow-capped mountains. The road book was very detailed which meant that we did and saw things on the tour that we would not have known about had we been left to our own resources.
Sue & Steve Somerset Tour: Springtime in Holland 8. May 2018
Thank you for a wonderful tour. We loved travelling in a group and enjoyed the company of the other members of the group. Having the tour organised saved us hours of planning ourselves. We also liked the reassurance that an "expert" was with us should the worst happen - fortunately it did not! The campsites were excellent and the traveling distances between them were perfect and not too far apart. We particularly liked the "Amsterdam" campsite, its proximity to the city and the stunning location. The advice to bring bikes was absolutely right for us and the pickup in Calais was fab. We look forward to travelling with you again.
Ann & Peter Kent Tour: Picturesque Provence 9. July 2017
The campsites were good. Welcome dinner, highlights, the route and information material were excellent, as was the tour guide who offered very good support. We will travel with you again.
Nicky & John Conwy Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 10. October 2018
The tour was excellent, and we were very grateful for the guidance you gave us on what to see and where to go. It was reassuring knowing that you were there to help if needed. The group was great fun and we enjoyed the camaraderie and knowing there were friends to return to at the campsite after a busy day sightseeing.
Liz & Martin Greater Manchester Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 18. July 2018
The overall organization and planning of the tour made for very smooth running. The group size was ideal, and there was plenty of time for group interaction. The “Rhine in Flames” evening was excellent and we saw the most impressive display of fireworks we have ever seen.
On our way home, we tried to find a campsite in the Monschau area close to the town centre or on a bus route and marvelled (again) at the time that Michael must take in doing just that for every campsite. To say nothing about giving us exact coordinates to find it! I know it's part of the service but it's only now having had to do it for ourselves that we really appreciate the ease with which we have travelled!
Liz and Martin
Nicky & John Conwy Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 16. October 2019
A great tour, which we very much enjoyed - thank you. We visited some remarkable places, saw great things and met super people.
Ann & Tony Staffordshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 20. July 2019
We really enjoyed our second tour with Michael and Audrey. The Moselle region was our favourite – the riverside campsites were good, and the towns were only a short distance away with clear instructions of how to access them. We would happily recommend MandA Tours and will travel again with you.
Jen & John Leicestershire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 25. September 2018
We enjoyed the whole tour and made new friends. Can’t wait for next year’s tour to the Rhine and Moselle!
Tricia & Alan Cambs Tour: Spectacular Spanish Northern Coast 29. June 2019
Once again, another great taster tour. We really appreciate now the variety on offer along the Northern Spanish Coastal area: magnificent ancient buildings, picturesque old towns, stunning mountains and national parks…. and beautiful beaches! We would certainly like to return sometime to spend more time exploring this area. We particularly enjoyed the towns / cities of San Sebastian, Burgos, Santillana des Mar and Santiago de Compostela. We also loved the Picos and mountain visit (having successfully negotiated the cable car), the beaches at the western end and Praia des Catedrais!
Susan & Molly Co-Durham Tour: Picturesque Provence 10. June 2018
Last year I travelled with MandA Tours to the Rhine. For me, as a single traveler, it is important to be able to rely on your tour guide and Michael is knowledgeable, responsive and always ready to help. The scenery in the Provence was stunning and there was plenty of things to do. I enjoyed the friendliness and compatibility of the group. You always get an excellent holiday with MandA Tours and are always made welcome.
Yvonne & Martyn West Midlands Tour: Impressive Italian Lakes & Cities 8. October 2018
This was our second tour with Michael & Audrey. They are so friendly, knowledgable, professional and approachable and their communication skills are excellent. We particularly liked that the driving distances were kept low, allowing us plenty of time to sightsee or relax at the campsites. We really enjoyed the company of the friendly and supportive group. Our favorite place was the Lake Orta site and we will definitely return there. The campsites and their locations were excellent. The roadbook was very detailed, which meant that we did and saw things on the tour that we would not have known about had we been left to our own resources.
Looking forward to the Rhine & Moselle Rivers tour next year.
Maggie & Ken Oxfordshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 26. July 2018
MandA Tours was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the route along the Rhine and Moselle Rivers and would certainly consider booking another of their tours. The tour was organised perfectly by Michael who was always friendly and available if we had questions. It was an effortless method of touring in a relaxed atmosphere with a group of like-minded people who were great to be with.
Tricia & Alan Cambridgeshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 26. September 2017
Thank you for a very enjoyable trip. We saw some beautiful scenery, visited a variety of places and met some lovely people. The detailed road book was excellent. Your local knowledge took us to places we wouldn’t have found ourselves! We can only imagine the hard work that goes into researching and creating the tours to make them interesting and successful. Your personal enthusiasm and commitment certainly added to our enjoyment of the 2 weeks.
We will definitely consider another trip.
Jane & Alan Monmouthshire Tour: Breathtaking Black Forest 8. October 2018
A fantastic Motorhome tour, very different from our previous caravan tours. The short drives with one or two night stops took a little time to get used to, however Michael and Audrey made the tour very interesting and a great adventure! The opportunity to meet other motorhomers while exploring a wonderful country was a delight. We have already booked their Amazing Alpine Roads tour for next year!
Yvonne & Tim Herts Tour: Picturesque Provence 10. June 2018
The tour gave us the opportunity to explore the region, and not worry about planning our visit. We enjoyed travelling with a group and making new friends, who were always ready to lend a hand or give good advice when necessary. Michael is absolutely passionate about his tours and puts his heart and soul into making everyone's trip a special experience.
Thank you Michael & Audrey and we hope to travel with you again soon.
Safe journey home.
Tim + Yvonne
Trish, Paul & Dexter Surrey Tour: Springtime in Holland 10. June 2018
The tour was perfect. We met Michael of MandA Tours as a stranger and within hours he became a great guide and friend. It was our first trip abroad in our new motorhome and he gave us so much confidence. We look forward to travelling with MandA Tours again and to making some more new friends. We enjoyed everything and wish MandA Tours great success for the future.
Liz & Chris West Midlands Tour: Amazing Alpine Roads 28. June 2018
The tour was excellent, the booking process easy, the information material supplied was comprehensive, the campsites of a high quality and the highlights enjoyable.
The Welcome dinner during the first evening allowed us to get to know the other members of the group at the beginning of the tour, who were all very friendly. We liked the great campsites chosen by MandA Tours, especially as the on site restaurants gave us the opportunity to try a glass of local German beer in the evening after a full day sightseeing.
We especially liked the boat trip on Lake Köngissee with its amazing scenery and the typical Bavarian meal in the brewery on lake Tegernsee.
We would highly recommend MandA Tours and are thinking of joining the Italian Lakes & Cities tour next year.
Thanks for a great holiday.
Liz & Chris
Jacqui & Richard Monmouthshire Tour: Majestic Rhine & Moselle Rivers 9. July 2017
A big "thank you" to MandA tours for an excellent service and for us an introduction to Germany. We cannot fault the professionalism, kindness and service that was provided throughout the whole tour.
Julie & Bruno West Yorkshire Tour: Europe's Best Christmas Markets 27. December 2018
The tour was excellent, and I would like to say thank you for a fabulous trip! I had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the company and all the places we visited. You both are wonderful hosts and I don’t think you could have been any more helpful or attentive - I really appreciated that.
A BIG THUMBS UP!
