Debra was so knowledgable about the Cotswolds and Blenheim, we learned and enjoyed every minute of the day. We learned the back story everywhere. She was also very kind, at the end, talking to each participant to make sure everyone knew how to get “home” Safely. Debra has a wonderful sense of humor and a deep understanding of England’s history. She even told us where to stand to see the Queen on her way to address Parliament Yesterday morning. She was absolutely correct with the time and place. We took video of the procession. What a thrill. We saw the Queen!!!! Thank you, Debra, Michelangelo our driver, and Evans and Evans. What a wonderful tour.

Outstanding guide and tour. Right pace, learned lots

Phil Bennett was out guide - well informed, professional, helpful and fun. The tour was comprehensive, but Phil made it interesting and complete. His knowledge helped fill in the gaps of knowledge of the group. The Churchill exhibit was outstanding!
