“The holiday was absolutely fantastic. There we seventeen of fellow travellers from the UK and nine from the USA. The holiday did try to pack a little too much in and didn’t allow a real rest day. The tour manager did very well but was left a couple of times trying to get ticket information from your head office.

“Great location by the Lake and the hotel was the best I've stayed in with GRJ. The tour manager Gilly did an excellent job and the size of the group being only 23 people was perfect. There is a good balance with this tour between free time and excursion days. The free time allowed you to explore the town, take a ferry trip or just relax by the lovely pool. The excursion to Venice was enhanced by the gondola ride but the guided tour was too long. I really enjoyed the excursion to Malcesine at the more northern end of Lake Garda. Overall a very good holiday.
