Ciao Roma!

A brief trip to Rome was a very welcome respite from the rain, rain and more rain that we’ve been enduring in the UK for the last few months. Bright blue skies, a freshness in the air and it certainly feels like spring is on its way in the City of Fountains.

TESTIMONIALS
"We had a very active, inclusive and enjoyable tour, thanks to your efforts. I couldn’t have asked for more in terms of planning or operations from your end. Excellent job. I wanted to let you know that I was very satisfied with all your arrangements, and couldn’t have asked for a better working companion!" Harry, San Francisco

"Thank you so very much for everything you did to make our trip such a success. From your kind and approachable attitude when we first spoke through to your willingness to follow up on all the (crazy) ideas I had, the pre-trip planning was characterised by your willingness to accommodate our needs and our changing schedule. I was amazed at how you managed to make all of the things we spoke about actually happen, including booking my favourite London pub and getting us tickets to a Premier League game. This was evidenced by the thoughtful and extremely thorough dossier you put together for me, which meant I was always on top of the details so I could be a good leader for our participants (in truth you made me look way better prepared than I had any right to!) While we were on the ground, you were always available on the phone and extremely responsive to every little need and query we had.…our trip was a major success and this owes a great deal to the dedication, attention to detail and kindness of you and your team. I would wholeheartedly recommend you to any other team looking to take a group to England" Henry, California

"Bright Horizon Travel recently completed a tour for one of my groups; all reports from both the passengers and leader ranked the journey most favorably and highly successful. Sarah Trenchard’s hotel recommendations, her follow-through on all details, and her attention to the day-to-day itinerary timings was faultless. Additionally, both Sarah and Tanya Elston met this group upon arrival at London Heathrow and subsequently along their route several days into the tour to personally assess how the tour was progressing. I feel very confident in recommending Bright Horizon Travel for immediate consideration with regard to any upcoming group travel planning. Sarah Trenchard and Tanya Elston are highly professional and you will be well pleased with their excellent service" Cecelia, Vermont
