The route, accommodation, detailed notes on where to go and what to see made it an adventurous road trip with all the difficult planning bit taken out!

We had a fun group to travel with and enjoyed lots of laughs in the evenings too. Really looking forward to doing another trip with you.” J&A.B., Hampshire

“We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Classic Travelling and it was very nice to meet and get to know you.   As you know my husband is Scottish and I lived there for 30 years but we had never visited Sutherland or Wester Ross and it was such a pleasure to discover it and to confirm how stunningly beautiful it is. The hotels you chose were superb and diverse and our favourite was Links House after Gleneagles – the food everywhere was delicious. We were of course extremely lucky with the weather and saw Scotland at its best and every day was just so very enjoyable. We have some very special memories and photos. I think the group as a whole got on extremely well and we met some very nice friendly people which after 15 months of coping with lockdowns etc was most welcome.  The group Whats App was a great idea and a nice way to keep in touch and the book you produced was very thorough and well researched.” I&J.R., Hampshire

Hope to see you again.” R&P.D., Gloucestershire

“(We) joined the Classic Traveling trip through Spain and Provence to the Monaco Classic GP.  This was a Bentley Drivers Club tour and we chose the route and Classic Traveling because we had never driven through Spain before.  The route, the hotels and the guidance we received from Sarah was excellent.  We were in a pre-war car whilst some others were in modern Bentleys so the mix was tricky. However, Sarah embraced the challenge and delivered a lovely trip and some fabulous views which we will not forget.  Many thanks and we will be back when we can.” G&M.G., Leeds

As a Northumbrian for my first 10 years I was really looking forward to visiting old familiar sites and discovering the magnificence of new, which is very much what happened, so thank you. It has to be said that the weather enhanced the scenery to its full glory…..acres and acres of cornfields baled and casting shadows in the sunlight as they almost rolled down the hillsides, absolutely beautiful. Fabulous streams wonderful gardens and quirky bridges….so much of nature to see and the ancient castles along the shoreline, majestic in their solemnity. Do please take others to Northumbria I am sure the feedback has been exceptional. Well done and thank you from R and myself.” – R&N.C., Gloucestershire

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

“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?” – L.H., Melbourne, Australia

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; Kinloch Lodge was 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 Liz, 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 wonderful rally, I think the AMOC members will be talking about it for years!

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!!” – A&B.M., Surrey

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.
