TESTIMONIALS
So impressed with the smooth movement of 16 individuals around 3 hotels in 3 cities and innumerable ancient sites. Breathtaking.
Our lecturer was a naturally gifted presenter, both knowledgeable and able to engage in a 2 way conversation. His talks were fascinating.
My first experience of a Martin Randall trip was very enjoyable; no detail was overlooked. We were unobtrusively looked after, never herded.
