  • Of the 24 Australians, nobody had a bad word to say about the whole exercise and again, I commend you and your staff for such a fine event. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tours International to anybody travelling to the UK or Europe. On behalf of the Air Dispatch Association of Australia, again, thank you very much for a wonderful experience.
