The battle field tour was an amazing experience.Until you see it with your own eyes, you just can't imagine what went on. Iain McHenry is a top notch tour guide, very knowledgeable.The hotels, food, itinerary, were all outstanding.

Excellent help from Jo in setting up the tour and itinerary. Iain is very knowledgeable and an incredible guide. Paul, our driver, was very professional and yet very personable. Extremely happy with the whole trip from start to finish.
