We can never run a flawless tour as unforeseen things arise along the route. It is how we handle them after the fact and how our customers are willing to accept small changes or challenges the Tour director or Driver encounter along the way. Customer feedback is important to us and we always make constantly make changes and improvements even on the most successful tours.
