We recently travelled to Japan on JTB’s Yokohama Quilting Tour and would like to thank you and your organisation for a wonderfully successful tour.
All the arrangements for the tour proceeded flawlessly and we did not encounter any problems at all during our stay. Our tour leader, Lynn Hewitt was a lovely person to travel with and her knowledge of Japan and experience in leading such tours was evident all through our time together. The itinerary, while aimed for quilters was varied and interesting and my husband, Rob (a non-quilter!) found plenty to interest him on the tour and he was made to feel very welcome among a lovely travelling group. There were plenty of general sightseeing activities as well as the craft related ones.
May we also commend the local guides, Ikuko, Makiko, Keiko and Aiko, who assisted us along our journey. Their help and local knowledge were invaluable to us and made the logistics of our travel much easier than they would have been without their help. All four guides were very engaging with excellent English skills, were pleasant in every way, very willing to help as required and interesting to listen to as they shared information about their country with us.
We congratulate you and all at JTB for an exceptionally well organised, well led and thoroughly enjoyable tour. I will have no hesitation in highly recommending your future tours to other quilting friends.
Margaret and Rob
