My husband and I have done a great deal of traveling, and after having read Hank Kovell's article of March 9 about how wonderful Giovanni Tours were, we contacted them about their coming trip to the British Isles, leaving this month. We just cannot believe what has occurred since that phone call. The free pre-departure activities that this company offers, as part of their tours, are incredible. We were brought together for an English pub supper, a full English breakfast and a how-to camera and film class, topped by a wonderful weekend in Ojai which included meals, accommodations and fun classes. I can't wait to travel with my new-found friends.
