“The organisation was superb and the activities magnificent. I already had high expectations for the day but the outcomes surpassed my expectations.

It was one of the best trips I’ve done in 30 years of teaching. Heartfelt and sincere thanks to all involved for such a perfect trip. Life long memories were created today.”
