I love when I get the chance to go on tour with a group and see first-hand the dream that I've helped to make into a reality.– Alison Fox Music Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

The hotel was great - basic facilities but very clean and the staff were friendly and flexible about mealtimes, etc. The region itself is excellent, offering a wide range of activities. Staff at all the venues were welcoming to our group and very patient and encouraging about the children's attempts to speak German! — The Wavell School, April 2012
