"Leger are such a fantastic company and I will continue to travel with them for many years"
John has been travelling with Leger for almost a decade, during which time he has visited destinations including Spain, Austria, Italy and most recently, Holland. Attending services at his local Cathedral is a massive part of John’s life and it was a meeting with the Canon Precentor at Wakefield Cathedral that inspired his interest in Aachen Cathedral and the most recent Leger holiday that he joined…
I joined this holiday as it looked extremely interesting in the brochure. Following a conversation with a member of the clergy at the Cathedral, my interest in visiting the Cathedral in Aachen grew to the point where I just had to make a visit. As I have travelled with Leger so many times and as their tour programme is so varied, I was certain that I would be able to find a tour which would allow me to visit Aachen and the Cathedral, as well as enjoy a Leger holiday. Valkenburg, Aachen and the Rhine Valley was the perfect choice for me, as not only did it allow me to make my visit, but it also gave me the chance to see some new places, as well as to re-visit Amsterdam.
The tour itinerary involved visits to some great places. Although I had visited Amsterdam before, it was nice to go back, join the canal cruise and see the sights. In Valkenburg, we made time to visit the castle, which was magnificent. I would certainly recommend a visit to the castle to anyone who was thinking about spending time in Valkenburg.
We always travel by Silver Service, as the coaches are so comfortable and the drivers are always friendly. Our drivers were Rob and Glynn and as I have travelled with Rob before, it was really nice to see a familiar face. They looked after us very well and made sure that everyone had a great holiday.
The De Bogaerde Hotel was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. It is well located so we were able to walk into town on an evening.
Although I enjoyed the whole holiday, the highlight of the tour for me was definitely my visit to the Cathedral in Aachen. It far exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased that I was able to travel with Leger to fulfil my ambition. Leger are such a fantastic company and I will continue to travel with them for many years. In fact, I will be going to Spain again later in the year with them and I cannot wait.
