I think it was brilliantly organised, and you show great attention to detail and to the welfare of everyone in the group. The art history arrangement are just right for me.
Thank you for arranging such an eye-opening visit to Sicily. The range of temples, churches and other buildings was fascinating, and the pace at which we went has allowed me to take them in and recall them clearly.
I feel very comfortable with the “personal yet hands-off” style that you have perfected. Have recommended you to several friends.
A terrific range of visits, and the tutor’s willingness to be available and to offer help in interpretation and her patience in re-saying what she’d said the night before was amazing.
Suggestions for free-time were very helpful and it was great that ‘extras’ kept popping up (while we were out and about on visit days).
I really appreciated the way you scooped up the waifs and strays who wanted company. Thank you.
The lectures were very helpful as you knew which pictures/statues to look for and specific things to study when you got there – i.e. stones in David’s enormous right hand
The visits were very well organised to a variety of examples of Florentine and Tuscan architecture at its best.
Florence: February 2011
I enclose your questionnaire as requested. It was difficult to find anything which could have been better, as the holiday was as perfect as it could have been.

Milan study week: November 2011
It has been a wonderful introduction to a city that I have long hoped to visit.
Very carefully planned.
It was nice to have the first and last night organised and leave us free to choose otherwise.
Very well organised visit – excellent company – thanks for everything.
Every time a winner! Many thanks.
Venice: January 2010
Warmest thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable autumnal break – with exceptionally nice travelling companions and meticulous planning on your part, For that, and the thorough briefing and literature beforehand, I am extremely grateful to you.
The lectures: just the right mixture of informative and intriguing
The visits: all were splendid. There was time to see all the most important works and buildings and I like the flexibility given to explore more or stay with then noted items
First and last night menus were well chosen and the quality excellent. We enjoyed dining with other members of the group but were also pleased with our excursions elsewhere.
Once again a very enjoyable trip – much enjoyed, good subject matter, fellow passengers, hotel, instruction materials etc.
Florence study week: November 2010
A nice mix of informality and study.
