Clients’ comments“We had a fantastic trip, thank you for all your planning on our behalf. We loved the Faroes. The landscapes were stunningly strange and other-worldly, helped by the regular low cloud and mist, rapidly followed by dapples of sunshine. It was difficult to stop taking photographs! All in all it was a terrific trip, and one we will be recommending to some friends. We look forward to travelling with your assistance again soon.”
