What our guests say about this trip

We have had 2 wonderful holidays with Enchanting Travels. Both were different, but equally Enchanting planned amazing experiences , I feel the run of the mill tour agencies do not try to cater for the individual clients likes and wishes. I will always now contact Enchanting Travels first when planning future holidays.
