Tour Reviews

    We made a mistake with the dates for our tour but Veronica went out of her way to fit us in on a spate afternoon she had. We are so pleased that she was able to do that because her tour was top class and excellent value for money. Veronica was very knowledgeable about the Flanders sites and was able to give us a great New Zealand perspective as we asked. Thankyou Veronica, you come highly recommended from us!
