WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT
HOMEMADE HOLIDAYS

Dear Paul & Pauline,
How can I ever thank you for such a perfect vacation in Britain? From the very start you have gently guided and thoughtfully overcome every challenge we threw at you. Your attention to detail is amazing. Nancy and I will never forget out lovely week in Cornwall. So until
next time we wish you every success and may God bless you both.

Carol A. Rhode Island U.S.A.

Dear Paul & Pauline,
At first I was a bit dubious that 2 weeks in England could be a fulfilling experience. Carol was so excited from the start and that became infectious!!. Our two weeks with you has been a learning experience as well as a dream come true! Thanks for your guidance and patience. I look forward to Part II of our English/Scottish adventure.

With love and gratefulness,

To Paul & Pauline,
Thank you very much for the sensational vacation! Your attention to detail and expertise are invaluable and you wield them in such a light and easy manner. You make it all look so easy. Thank you also for your hospitality, it lent an even deeper personal touch to our stay. It is wonderful to have such caring friends and we cannot wait to visit again.

Dear Paul & Pauline
Thank you for another dream holiday. The hotels in Edinburgh and Dumfries were fantastic. The service was excellent and, of course the Scottish breakfast was delicious. The first class train service was quite luxurious. It was sparkling clean and quiet, and the food was surprisingly gourmet. We loved our time with you and you will always be one of those friends that we can take up with where we left of, no matter how many years have past. Thank you with all my heart.

Dear Paul & Pauline.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday. I enjoyed getting to know both of you and look forward to continuing our friendship. This trip has been magical in many ways; the food, the cathedrals, the countryside, the ales and of course the food. I believe I have eaten more on this trip than I have in the last six months. I have enjoyed the various country inns and B&Bs we have visited. I really enjoyed eating a variety of traditional dishes and drinking local ales. (There's that food connection again, but I think I won't ever find lemon drizzle cake and Sticky Toffee Pudding with cream anywhere in the U.S.) Most of all I have enjoyed learning about your country. Reading the guidebooks is good, but actually hearing the stories and seeing the sights makes everything
come alive. I will always remember this trip. I am looking forward to more visits. I hope you're not all booked up when I want to come. Thank you for everything.

Hi Paul and Pauline,

It's been a while now and we have settled back into life here in Aus. Thank you both for such great service with my tour of England - we really did achieve a lot and travelled many, many miles. When I think back on my trip I really appreciate that so much was done for me that allowed me to enjoy as much as possible on such a short time scale. I did not have to worry about the driving, navigating, parking, tolls, deciding where to eat each meal, where to stay, or checking addresses and opening times of places that I wanted to visit. You're expert commentary Paul on every place that we visited or drove through was most impressive and appreciated - we would not have had the time or energy on our own to have uncovered so much information.

I've only been home 5 days from the most memorable 3 weeks of my life, thanks to Paul and Pauline, and am already wondering how I can return as soon as possible... 'Paul and Pauline managed to squeeze in everything I truly wanted to see, from North to South-
the Orkneys, the Highlands, Edinburgh, King's Lynn and the Seahenge exhibit, Wales, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Glastonbury, Tintagel - and so MUCH MORE! It was a fantastic mix of time on my own, touring, time with them, enough time to truly poke around museums and castles and cathedrals and countryside; experience pubs and fabulous food (no matter what anyone at home tried to tell me!) and Dr. Who and sometimes simply stand in awe or laugh in sheer delight.
All punctuated, of course, with Paul and Pauline's wonderful sense of humor, warmth and friendliness - worth more than I could ever express. (I've already given 3 people recommendations to use Homemade Holidays on upcoming trips!)

Paul and Pauline treated me like family; I cannot say enough about them or their business. Have a great summer!

Dear P&P,

We find it difficult to put into words our feelings about our holiday. The things we learned, the things we experienced and the friendships we made will last a life time. Right now our heads are filled with images of the trip. We are constantly reminding each other of the many funny, touching and awe inspiring moments. As the days go by we know we will return to the banalities of everyday life, but we will try to keep the magic of this trip alive in our hearts. We want you to know that we are grateful for all that you have shared with us. Yes, we paid for the trip, but when we arrived in England it didn't seem like a paid tour at all. From the moment Paul met us at the airport, we were treated as guests, not customers, and very quickly became friends. You are two very special people and our lives have been enriched forever for having met you.

Judy, Doug & Bob. Pennsylvania U.S.A.

On the anniversary of our trip to England last year, we've been thinking about you and the wonderful time you showed us. We keep reminding ourselves of "where we were on this day....." Just wanted to say "thank you" for such wonderful memories.

Dear Paul & Pauline,

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful memories that we have of our second
honeymoon! The food was absolutely fabulous. The places we visited were beautiful. Your friendship, along with the others we made will be cherished for all time.

Buddy & Charlene. Maryland. U.S.A.
--------------------------------------

I just wanted to say what a fabulous time we had with you. Having a guide who could explain what we were seeing made it so much more meaningful. Stephen's report on English Castles was the best in the class and he received the highest possible grade. Many, many, thanks for everything and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Paul and Pauline are two of the finest, nicest people I have ever had the greatest fortune to meet. They planned two vacations for me to enjoy, and I had such a wonderful time that I cried when it was time to go home. I miss them both very much and cannot wait to return to England and find more of my ancestor's heritage

Dear Paul & Pauline,
We wished to express our appreciation for your kindness, hard work and endeavours to make our trip really special and memorable. I am so grateful for that day that I bought that magazine with your ad in it. We would have missed so much if we'd taken ourselves. Surely it was divine intervention. Pauline, your knowledge and help with my family history research meant that I found
our more than I expected. Thank you for all the time and effort you put in.

Teresa & David.

Paul & Pauline,

Thank you for all the wonderful things that you did for Mom and me. Everything was so overwhelming, I didn't realise until I got home, how much we put into such a short amount of time. You worked so hard toting us around. I hope one day to see you again.
