I wanted to thank you for a wonderful tour. The hotel was incredible, the location was superb, and the whole experience with Venatour was fabulous. I specifically wanted to thank the team who were always available to answer any silly questions and did so with such a positive attitude! Overall the Venatour staff were amazing and the entire tour arrangements were faultless. My first solo experience overseas and I hope that I can travel with Venatour again!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all at Venatour for a fantastic ‘Lions’ tour. We had such an amazing time and are now busy looking at some of the Six Nations packages!
