April 19, 1992
We've come back from a 10-day visit to England and Scotland. To see as much of what we wanted to, without driving ourselves, we decided to use the services of Garden of England Tours. John Turner was mentioned in Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips several years ago (and again April 12). John drove us on three days of personally devised tours that were the highlight of our vacation. We second the original recommendation. LEONARD and RUTH KING Malibu

The letter from Newport Travel Concepts, "All About Travel" (Jan. 22), attests that there are good travel agencies available. And the response that I received due to the Dec. 4 item in Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips on my travel planning service, Journeys by Angie, indicates that people are looking for more focused travel planning. Unlike most agencies, my business provides travelers not only with tailored itineraries and accommodations, but also with descriptions of local cuisine and restaurants, out-of-the-way sights and detailed maps on locating sights and hotels.

Reading Slater and Basch's account of viewing Upper Egypt from A&K's Sun Boat (Jan. 29) recalled my wonderful experience aboard the Atlas last December. I have received so many excellent tips, both for myself and for Partners-In-Travel through Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips, that I would like to share with your readers. The Atlas has perhaps 40 comfortably sized cabins with bath, a pleasant bar lounge, two sun decks and mini-pool and shop. The food is good, service attentive and courteous.

On April 23, one of your readers recommended in Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips, Namena at Moody's Namena Island in the Fiji Islands. There was one mistake, though. The cost per day is not $40 but $40 for food plus $110 for lodging. I have been there four times and plan to return every year. It's a marvelous place. Write to Moody's Namena Island, Private Mail Bag, Suva, Fiji. CHRISTINE PETERFY Beverly Hills

An item from Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips a couple of years ago led us to Tusker Trail and Safari Co. which, after much research on our part, became our choice of outfitters for a custom safari in Kenya and Tanzania. Going to Africa was a childhood dream and Tusker Trail did not let us down. They made it the trip of a lifetime. Our highest recommendation for Tusker Trail and Safari Co., P.O. Box 5444, Santa Monica 90405, (818) 705-4850. LISE KIMBALL Dana Point

One of Jerry Hulse's "Travel Tips" (May 22, 1988) led us happily to the O-Bar-O Resort in Colorado, near Durango. Owned and operated by former Los Angeles resident Dusty Walker and his wife Claire, this get-away-from-it-all resort has fine accommodations: pine-paneled cabins with kitchenettes and fireplaces. Everything is furnished except for fishing equipment, which can be rented there. In a woodsy setting, each cabin fronts the Florida River, which is well stocked with trout. And there are other activities nearby, including the not-to-be-missed Durango-Silverton rail trip.

As a direct result of a tip from Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips (Feb. 19), my wife and I took a six-day tour of the English Lake District during July. The tour was an absolute delight for it made available portions of the Lake District that would be inaccessible to the casual traveler. Accommodations were first-class, the food was superb, the price was reasonable ($1,125 per person), the group was small and the daily tours were interesting, varied and well-organized. The contact was J. Goldsmith, c/o Land of the Lakes Tours Ltd., The Birches, Cornbirthwaite Road, Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 1DG, Great Britain, toll free (800)

The baggage tip in Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips on July 8 was excellent. It is a good idea for people to try and help their own situation when it comes to lost baggage. However, I have one more suggestion to add, whether domestically or internationally. Passengers are already asked to put name tags on their luggage. But if people would attach four tags (preferably the sticker type) in the following manner, it would help the lost luggage problem. Add two name tags, one on the inside and one on the outside of the bag with your home or office phone and address, plus two name tags (one inside, one outside also)

I read your reply to a young student, Nancy Espinoza, about travels to Europe (Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips, Feb. 3). Your reply was so beautifully said, it seemed so very close to my own feelings about this complicated but beautiful world. Thank you for somehow helping me feel better in these dark moments when we are at war. EVA J. HAIGHT San Juan Capistrano

I am very grateful to "Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips" (March 5) on ways to (counteract) theft while traveling in Europe. Unfortunately I ignored his advice on the money belt, but I did duplicate all of our personal papers and travel documents. While in Paris in June my husband and I had our camera case stolen. Besides our expensive Nikon, the case also contained our passports and other travel necessities. Because we had duplicates of everything we were able to replace our passports in a few hours.

I read Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips each Sunday and I often cut out and save some of the useful tips and recommendations. However, I have absolutely no use for any reader recommendation where the price is not included. Apparently, many people do not read the last paragraph. Thanks for the many tips. RUBEN HOLM Irvine
