Hope this email finds you well and preparing for a great weekend. We have been back in the states since August 13th from the Queen Mary 2 cruise. We had a wonderful time and explored numerous countries and learned a great deal. However it is always nice to get home. We truly had a wonderful time with you all and realized that Vigo, Bayona and Galicia have a lot of offer and we would love to come back. It was a true pleasure to spend the day with you. Our whole family feels the same. You were the most informative out of all the tours on our entire trip! It would be a great pleasure to tour again with you and honestly hope that we will on your 2008 ship that we spoke about.

Mike it was great working with you on deciding what to do in Vigo and working out special packages for us there and the other countries we visited. It was great to meet you, unfortunately we didn’t have too much time after the tour, so that we will have to do on our next visit, or when you decide to come to Florida for a visit, please contact us and we will show you the area and sights!!
