"The itinerary too was good"
Please accept my thanks for organising our trip to New England etc. All arrangements worked exactly as arranged and we were particularly pleased with the standard of hotels used.
The itinerary too was good and we loved Kennebunkport, Stowe and Jackson. We were well looked after in all locations, although slightly less so at Von Trapp hotel that was less personal because of their size, but the experience itself was welcome.

Today, drive around the Vineyard to see a variety of landscapes in the six independent towns, whose separate histories form a composite tale of the island’s past. Tour “downisland”, the busy and fashionable eastern half of the Vineyard where Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, and Vineyard Haven lure the rich and famous; and up-island, the sparsely populated and sleepy towns to the west. Aquinnah is known for its beautiful clay cliffs and quiet natural serenity and the beach is one of the few nude beaches left in the U.S.

Take the ferry back to the mainland for a three hour drive via Providence to Mystic, although you might prefer to take the longer (and rather prettier) route through Rhode Island where you could spend a couple of nights if you wish. Do visit Mystic Seaport, depicting 17th century seafaring history with some fascinating ships to explore.

J Smith - Travelled New York to Toronto
I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
