We hadn't been away at the festive season prior to this tour for many years. We had decided that staying at home at New Year was very boring so decided to look for something different. We have travelled with Leger for many years and have had many enjoyable tours with Stuart and Ralph, with this one being no exception.

We boarded our transfer coach in North Wales and straight away our luggage was taken care of and the two drivers made us feel welcome and made sure we were comfortable before setting off. The journey to Dover was relaxing and timed to perfection with plenty of time at the interchange for a refreshing coffee whilst our cases where transferred to our tour coach. When we were called to our coach Stuart and Ralph were there to greet us and we knew straight away we were going to have a good time.

The journey to our overnight hotel was comfortable with Stuart gave us commentary on places of interest along the way, and gave us details of our overnight stop and departure for the next day. The hotel was comfortable, the food was good and all the staff were friendly.

The next day we arrived at the Hotel Alemannenhof in the Black Forest town of Rickenbach, to a very snowy scene. Prior to disembarking the hotel owner came on the coach to welcome us all and gave us information about the hotel. The hotel was comfortable and the staff extremely friendly who went out of their way to make us all feel welcome.

Whilst at the resort all the tours were well planned and the drivers very informative about the local areas. Strasbourg was one of the places we had not been to before and found it to be very interesting with the way buildings were decorated for the festive season.

The highlight of the tour was the gala evening on New Year’s Eve. The event was attended by multi nationalities which led to interesting conversations and enjoyment. The entertainment and food was second to none and was personally supervised by the owner who brought all his staff on to the stage to celebrate the New Year with us. The firework display at midnight was enjoyed by all the guests attending the gala.

New Year’s Day saw us have a much needed lie in prior to a relaxing tour of the Black Forest. We enjoyed the snowy scenery from the comfort of our coach seats on our journey to the lakeside town of Titisee were we enjoyed a coffee and rather large piece of Black Forest gateaux.

The coach was always kept clean inside and out even though the weather conditions were not favorable. The drivers Stuart and Ralph were always busy attending to everyone’s needs but always found time to be friendly and informative ensuring everyone got the most from their holiday. Throughout the tour they made us feel welcome, comfortable and supplied us with refreshments.

We enjoyed ourselves so much, and made some new friends with people on the tour, that we have booked again. Overall,  the tour was excellent value for money and we now look forward to our Easter holiday with Leger to Lake Garda, Venice and Verona.

Thank you Leger and all the staff who are involved in giving people memorable holidays.
