I was taking my sister on a Crystal cruise of the British Isles but I wanted to stay in a Manor House and do some touring before the cruise. It was the most fortunate occasion that I ended up being in touch with Jane Martin. We corresponded for about a year prior to our travel and I told her my cousin and I had a delightful garden tour the year before and so much enjoyed the old manor homes some of which are hotels. She recommended two on the route from Heathrow to Dover. The hotel could not have been better and we were so pleased. There were four of us and Jane picked us up and the airport and delivered us to our hotel with a lunch and a tour in between. The next day another tour and lunch before arriving at the ship around 5:00. Having corresponded so much with Jane I knew it was going to go well. She made our visit absolutely wonderful. I can't imagine a better guide and not having to drive was perfect. I know she customizes tours to do what ever you want to do in England. I am always recommending her to friends who are thinking of a trip. I would also like to plan another longer trip with her as our guide. We felt she was like one of the family and everything was so relaxed and pleasant. She makes wonderful suggestion but you can do what ever you like. We had planed most things before we arrived. This was the beginning of our trip and Crystal cruises are the best, but this we all felt was such a highlight.
