and possibly a driver would be needed, depending on numbers) and
of any duration, from one day upwards.

I am still excited about our visit and tour ... I wanted to
express my gratitude for your professional efforts before and during
the guided and escorted days with you... We were pleased with your
planning, driving, contacts with churchwardens, the hotel ...your
in-depth personal knowledge of the villages and churches saved valuable
travel time ...I will look forward to scheduling another enjoyable
and rewarding genealogical and historical guided tour with you.
