Wonderful, beautiful scenary...

I have just returned (September 2012) from the Tuscany Grand Tour, staying in Montecatini I flew out and joined up with the others , all of whom had come down by coach, the company was very mixed in ages and a great deal of fun. I took advantage of all the optional extras and was out every day. Daryl was a first class driver, very comfortable, smooth ride, excellent company and very informative reagarding the places we were visitng. The hotel staff were extremely efficient and fun, food was good and the hotel was situated right in the middle of the town. The scenery is fantastic, most beautiful place. I would heartily recommend.

Good holiday, weather was great

All the hotels were good, the food in the hotels in the out bound and home bound hotels was not a patch on the food in the hotel in Montecatini. The staff at the Grand Plaza were excellent.The trips were fine and well worth going on.The weather was excellent and most of the people on the coach were really very nice, although you always seem to get one which you really wish was somewhere esle, in our case we had two.
