The most memorable part of the holiday was the breathtaking beauty of the Costa Brava countryside and the quiet roads. Vivian and Alan gave us wonderful suggestions on places of interest, recommended restaurants and organised a visit to a local vineyard which was great fun! Vivian and Alan helped us with so many details above and beyond our tour.
