I clipped ideas and recommendations from Jerry Hulse's column for three years in preparation for a trip to Great Britain. With thanks, I offer this recommendation for others. We thoroughly enjoyed about 10 days of touring with Nick Maackhaames, a resident of Bath. Nick escorted us in a six-passenger car around England and Scotland. He was extremely knowledgeable and gracious; made extra effort to find things that would appeal to our family in particular. Nick's Red Guild of Tour Guides (7 Devonshire Building, Bear Flat, Bath) offers day and extended tours of Great Britain and Europe. Day tours cost between 75 and 100.
