“Through your hard work you have made so many people happy. You have given so many memories that will last a lifetime. I, for one, am so glad you do what you do. Because of you I had the trip of a lifetime, and as a bonus I got to be friends with you and Nick. Thank you so much!”

Baltic States Tour – July 2014

“Thank you for organising a brilliant rally, excellent itinerary, and very good accommodation. It was an area we knew nothing about, but now feel we have a pretty good grasp of its turbulent history and its landscape. As you said, although the terrain does not have the ‘wow’ factor of somewhere like Norway, the history and cultural background of the Baltic States more than make up for that.”

R&S.M., Hertfordshire

“We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday as we were with such a great group of people, and the hotels and food were really excellent. I enjoyed the cities and the guides.” 

T&J.H., Lincolnshire

“We had a wonderful time, thank you so much for everything you did to make it special and memorable.”

J&V.P., London

“A great variety of interesting and beautiful places to visit and to stay in – with good company.”

R&J.P., Somerset

“A thousand thanks for giving us the opportunity the visit the three Baltic States in such a fantastically easy and pleasurable manner. Your organisation was (as we have learned to expect!) impeccable, your choice of hotels perfect. Added to all of that we so enjoyed the company of our fellow travellers.”

N&B.S., Buckinghamshire

“Again, a fantastic tour of the Baltic States. This is the third year in a row I have joined your tours all the way from Australia, with my trusty +8 Morgan. So  that’s at least 11 or how many countries off my bucket list – with  the Norwegian Fjords Tour (Norway & Denmark), Trans-Alpine Adventure (France, Germany, Austria, Italy & Switzerland), and the Baltic States (Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia & Finland) tour – so next year – Ireland?”

Scottish Highlands & Islands Tour - May 2014

“As usual, a lot of hard work obvious in the reconnaissance, preparation and bookings.  It was particularly nice to be advised on good lunch stops; the Kinloch Lodge especially good. Numbers in the party just right. The first evening welcome drinks reception a nice touch and created friendliness amongst the party from the beginning. Nice to have dinners booked in advance and that re-enforced the external image of camaraderie amongst Jaguar enthusiasts.  Sarah hosted the tour with enthusiastic appeal, warmth and friendliness whilst keeping a weather eye on all her charges. Very easy to engage with, offer minor suggestions to, ask stupid questions of and be given reassuring answers.  Couldn’t imagine touring with anyone else.”

R&B.M., Surrey

“The individual photographs and the whole composition of the (tour photo) book is absolutely first class. We really enjoyed looking at it and showing our friends and family and it has always been greatly admired. Your organisation of the whole trip was faultless, ably helped we are sure by your mother, pity the same couldn’t be said about our car! The weather could have been better, but even that seemed right for Scotland!”

J&R.C., Worcestershire

“Thank you for organising an excellent holiday for us.  We greatly enjoyed the touring, the Scottish scenery, and the company.  As to the last, it was fun to pick up with old friends and to meet other fellow Jaguar enthusiasts.”

P&A.B., Surrey

“What a wonderful time we all had – leaving aside a few rainy days, now quickly forgotten, everything was great and went well. Your choice of participants was a great start to the roads, scenery, hotels, food, things to see etc etc and everything else that goes towards having fun. Just enough instructions, plenty of options and interests to keep us awake! It was nice to do a bit of our own thing too. There were many highlights!”

B&S.L., Surrey

“Thank you so much for organising such a fabulous tour.  We had a fantastic time, with such great driving roads, and scenery, and a lovely group amongst which you fostered a great atmosphere.   Thank you so much!”

P.G. & K.B., Oxfordshire

“It was a wonderful tour – even better than we expected. I loved the route directions – as good as any I have had over the years. 10/10 for service!”

Aston Martin Rally to Wilton House – 3 August 2013

“Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful rally, I think the AMOC members will be talking about it for years! (Classic Travelling’s) involvement in the event was amazing and hopefully was successful from your business point of view. Everyone we have talked to has spoken highly of you and your amazing route, now we all want to do a rally! From all points of view I think the day was a success and thank you for being a part of that.”

S&M.S., Dorset

“We have had a great time. We enjoyed the group. The hotels were good to perfect, and the parking excellent. We particularly loved the vineyard tour and lunch in Chianti, and the Puccini concert in Lucca. The routes were all excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed them. The tour book and its suggestions are greatly welcomed – one of the main reasons for coming on tour with Classic Travelling. The overall tour experience was very good and efficient.”

C&G.H., Worcestershire

“Thank you both for a wonderful tour. We really enjoyed our trip, it had something of everything. I really appreciated the lovely hotels and the non-motoring time, and your organised treats – they were the icing on the cake. (There was) such a lovely crowd of diverse people – it worked so well. The hotel in Florence was amazing and we loved the situation of the hotel in Lucca. We really enjoyed the route north of Lucca in particular. We always enjoy travelling with Classic Travelling and we had a brilliant time. Keep up the good work!!”

Isle of Wight Weekend – April 2013

“Thank you for arranging such a thoroughly enjoyable tour. The hotel was an inspired choice, with the quality of the rooms, the food and the service of a very high standard.  Even on that very wet day, we were well looked after in their very comfortable sitting rooms. The two runs we completed were particularly interesting routes and they gave us a very good feel for the island.  The highlight was, of course, Osborne House, which we thought was quite outstanding and gave such a good insight into the lives of Victoria’s family.  The Military Museum was also surprisingly good, thanks mainly to some extremely knowledgeable and interesting personnel. We were also very lucky to have such a nice group of fellow car enthusiasts.  I hope we will meet again on subsequent tours.”

M&M-C.B., Wiltshire

Norwegian Fjords Tour – June 2012

“What a great tour! We genuinely had a wonderful time and with only a single day when we  needed the roof even the weather was wonderful. As a paid up member of the union of moaners it is a great shame that there was absolutely nothing to complain about – the route map had no errors, the hotels varied from first class to excellent, the buffets put the Ritz to shame, and if the engineers had little to do their presence was reassuring.”

J&V.P., London

“What a fantastic trip !!!! I strongly doubt you can have more fun with your clothes on !?!?”

B.H., Sweden

“As always, a wonderful tour! Despite a few mechanical issues, none of these little shortcomings could take away the euphoria we felt having completed a fantastic trip (thanks Sarah and Nick) amongst such friendly company. Thanks everyone and look forward to being in your company on future trips.”

T&H.R., Berkshire

“C’etait super. Bravo!”

A.B., France

“This is just to express our sincere thanks to you for organising such a magnificent tour.  Everything about it was superb, the hotels, the food and drink, the participants, the route, the Pol Roger visit (and tasting!!), the back up mechanics and seeing such a fantastic display of E-Types!! We will certainly consider coming on any future events that you organise, and would in fact like to pre-register for the New England tour.”

C.H & D.L., Edinburgh

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for what was for me a truly wonderful experience. I met some of the most amazing people and have made some fantastic new friends.”

R.W., Devon

N.J., Shropshire

Isle of Wight Tour – April 2011

“What a great trip: Four days exploring such a pretty island, and somewhere I’d never been before. Perfect, perfect weather, lovely hotel, food far too good, and great company. And the ferry crossing made it really feel like we were going abroad – almost a proper holiday!”
