I just wanted to thank you for giving us all such a fantastic day yesterday. It was SO well organised, company fantastic, samples amazing, meeting factory owners to get the real stories and a fabulous lunch to top it all off.  I would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you again for everything as we had the most wonderful day without a single complaint!

Most enjoyable bus tour I have done – even better than overseas - lovely to know what goes on in my own district.
