A testimonial from Maidenhead rowing club below
We all had a great time – THANK YOU! I know our requirements, ie the recreational rowing/sight seeing combination, is not what you would normally do, but you pulled it off tremendously. I have had great feedback from everyone – as I told Guillem, the hotel surpassed our expectation (a marketing opportunity for you there) – they were incredibly helpful and did their best for us all. I was at the club last night and everyone was talking about it – there were lots of envious faces.
I did let Guillem know all this, but what you don’t know is how incredibly well the travel arrangements went on Monday which was all down to you Guillem. This was above and beyond what was expected and we really appreciated it. Guillem right about the vegetarian issue – a bit of education required there, but it was not a big deal. We did find a cafe in Girona which had vegetarian food which was great for the last lunch. But the museum was amazing and, again, even the non-cultural ones amongst us were very impressed. Less so the garden.
Pals and Peratallada were a really good suggestion of Guillem’s. We had a great lunch at the Papibou restaurant in Peratallada – we all said the best tapas we’ve ever had anywhere – it was amazing and incredibly good value. That’s one to recommend. Rigging the boats was not an issue for us, because you had the tools.
I have been very impressed by your professionalism from the first email – Nick immediately gave me confidence to go ahead. And then Guillem was also incredibly efficient and did everything he could to give us a good holiday. I would definitely recommend you. I would also like to travel with you again.
