European Tour Testimonials 

First of all, many thanks to both Sigi and Steve for a really lovely holiday to Stresa.  Lovely hotel, fab food, spectacular scenery and great company.  You both always look after us so well it makes the holiday really special.



Just a quick thank you for all your hard work which must have gone into producing a lovely holiday in Magnificent Maggiore.


Thank you for a lovely trip again to Stresa.  We also thoroughly enjoyed the visit to Lake Orta.  Alan, myself, Anthea and Francis also visited the Zoo and gardens which were amazing especially the rose gardens.  The zoo is in fact very different to this country as it was mainly birds and was very small with aviaries being dotted around the gardens and the views were amazing. The hotel was as good as last time with the staff being very attentive and we enjoyed the pool using it every day.

All in all another amazing trip – thank you and please pass on our thanks to Steve for his driving and his wonderful sense of humour!  You both work well together. Thank you both!




We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday but are glad the temperatures were lower than they are at the moment,  rather too hot for comfortable sightseeing. Thank you for all you did to make it another enjoyable Applegates holiday & thanks also to Steve for the important part he played in making the journeys comfortable.
