The holiday was really terrific - one to be remembered for ever. It really met all our hopes, and offered even more than anticipated - in particular, with all the wildlife that we saw. (And much better weather than expected!) Many thanks to JLA, our 3 lovely fellow travellers, and to tour leader in particular.NB, Keswick
