Apologies for not getting in touch with you sooner. It’s a New Year with added to do lists!!!
Thank you for your e mail and a very happy New Year to you and your family.
The trip was awesome, thank you.
Despite the hurdles, we managed to have a fantastic experience. Great family time. The crew were excellent as well, very helpful and always wanting to do their best.
I will definitely call you again to arrange our next trip!
Thank you to you all for all the arrangements made, ensuring we had a great family experience.
With best wishes and kind regards.
On behalf of my friends and I, would like to thank you for organising the Lorna D for us. We had a great time. The boat is fantastic and the crew was lovely. We will definitely do it again soon.
We had a really wonderful time on Lorna D. The boat exceeded our expectations and worked extremely well, helped by the really great crew of Jealous, Weston and Wycliffe. These are great guys, very friendly, yet experienced and, above all, professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they coped very well dealing with the different tastes of 3 "townie" Englishmen. They are a credit.
Following my earlier concerns about not having 2 fast speedboats, I am pleased to say that you were right. The pontoon was very comfortable, with quite a good and fast engine and much more suited to 3 or 4 people fishing.
The food was excellent - no complaints at all.
Thanks for all your help and advice in arranging a very enjoyable and memorable trip.
It was a wonderful trip.We are so pleased.
The only thing we didn´t like was that the fans was out of order. But the crew was fantastic. I have written about the trip in an Swedish website, I am an old journalist, and you can find it on www.nyfikengra.se
And Adam took some fantastic pictures, as he always does.
Just wanted to email to say that we had a fabulous trip and loved the Lorna D and staff.
Thanks for organizing it for us.
