You were the first one to tell me this trip might be possible.
Dear Garreth,I wanted to say THANK YOU for the amazing trip you put together for my husband, myself, and our friends. All my hopes for this trip and my husband's 50th birthday happened with the help of your time and work. This trip was definitely everything we wanted and so much more. I am sorry we did not get to meet you, would have loved to buy you a drink. I don't know if you knew but I had spoken with several different travel agents before speaking with you and you were the first one to tell me this trip might be possible. Then you helped make it possible. Everyone agreed it was the trip of a lifetime. We could not believe the distance we traveled and all the sites we were able to experience. We are all trying to pull our pictures together from our trip which will be so much fun to view all together.The hotels you reserved were excellent. The locations had access to everything we wanted and needed. The variety of hotels was great from the small feel of The Royal Hotel in Portree, beautiful palace feel in Pitlochry with a lovely herb/flower garden, breath taking view from our room at the Trident of the harbor, an old city hotel feel in Dublin to the modern feel of the Apex. The service at the Mont Clare was outstanding! Everyone was super friendly, helpful, and went out of their way to accommodate everything. Just a note, at three of the hotels, The Trident, The Royal Hotel, and Apex there was confusion about if our bill was paid in full and it took some time at each place sorting this out. The Royal Hotel asked about your tour services as they were not familiar with Emerald. We raved about your services in case you wanted to follow up with them. One thing we did not realize was that most hotels in Ireland and Scotland did not have a/c. A learning experience for us all, but all good. Apex had fans for everyone in each room. Best Western we had to request in advance but I think 2 rooms were able to obtain fans. There was a great night man, known as Bubba, at the Best Western that opened the bar for one last drink after we returned from watching the Euro Game. He gave us a private tour and history of the place. Loved it! Again, amazing memories made. Oh, another thing which I know you don't have any control of but wanted to let you know about. And honestly Gary and I were fine, but there was a big difference in the room sizes at the Scores hotel which actually worked out well as Jamie and John had the biggest room and at that part of the trip it was good for them to have more space. Ha Ha!!! Also, the breakfasts at all the hotels were great. A definite plus, thank you for working this into our package. And the Mont Clare still offered this for a reduced rate upon arrival so everything worked out perfect.I can't express to you how much I appreciate your time, your patience as I know there were many changes with people dropping out and joining, your coordination, expertise, and making this dream trip happen.Take care and thank you again.Mrs. Krawchuk
