France Tour: Pat and Ron King

Hello Martin,

We have completed our Itinerary and would like to thank you again for your ideas, suggestions, your booking of superb lodgings in pleasant locations, and your assistance on finding train connections between Avignon and Barcelona. Your booking us in Vence as home-base to explore the Riviera was exactly the right thing to do. Trusting you to lay out the itinery has proven again the right action for us. We had a great time in France. Our hotel in Barcelona was absolutely fabulous, in décor, service, and in amenities. It was a good location for a tourist and close to many cafes and tapa restaurants. The web-site you provided us for the train connections to Barcelona was for Brits and Aussies only. We did, however, contact an agent by phone for Rail-Europe in New York that was able to book it that way.

Final note: You were correct in warning us about the French Riveria and steering us toward Vence – it was indeed crowded and hectic. But now we have experienced it. We enjoyed Menton as it was less crowded and less pretentious.

France Tour: B. D.

My husband and I have just returned from two amazing weeks in France. We stayed at some wonderful places that we probably would not have found without Umfulana. They took away all the long hours of searching online for places to stay. There was a great variety in the B and B's, with each offering their own something special. All the hosts were gracious and respectful of privacy and an excellent breakfast on a beautifully set table was presented every morning. We recommended them to other travellers along the way. Our B and B hosts mentioned that from their side of things, Umfulana was a very good company to work with. We would have no hesitation in booking another vacation through Umfulana.

Umfulana is fantastic. We loved our trip through France. The B&B's were so well chosen. Each one so different and special. All located off the beaten tracks where you experience France in a more personal manner. All the inns chosen had fantastic hosts who were more than willing to help us in every way. I would say many of our hosts were better than 5 star concierge.

Martin is so professional and efficient. He answered all our questions so quickly and arranged eveything for us perfectly. We really appreciate his patience and all his effort in helping us with all the small details. The detail driving routes and excursion suggestions really helped.

Thank you Martin and the whole Umfulana Team for making our trip to France so very very memorable and special. You guys are truly excellent!! I will definitely recommend Umfulana to all my friends.

France Tour: Giles Stewart

We had a GREAT vacation covering 7 cities/towns in France & Switzerland. The locations you selected for all the Bed & Breakfast facilities were excellent. We made quite a fw new friends, especially in France and look forward to a future visit.

The only change we made, was an upgrade to the rental car, since the vehicle you included was substantially smaller than the vehicles we usually operate back home.

To sum up the trip, it met our complete satisfaction, and we will certainly call on you the next time we vacation in an area in which you provide service. We'll continue to recommend your service to our friends & associates.

Thanks for your help.

France Tour: James & Margaret Darley

Hi Jerry,

We have been home from our trip to France and Germany now for two weeks and are still talking about it. It was the best ever, thanks to your wonderful B&B bookings. They were all different, but brilliant in their own way. We loved them all! Our hosts at Guerande and Crepon stand out as exceptional. We would never have found such places on our own without a lot of research, so we're singing the praises of Umfulana to all and sundry! Perhaps our favourite day was Wuppertal/Cologne. Jim knew about Schloss Burg and wanted to revisit it after 50+ years! It was a crisp but sunny morning with the trees just showing their autumn colours. The castle was really interesting. Then we drove to Wuppertal, his old hometown and after finding the place he used to live and his old school, we had a ride on the Schwebebahn – Brilliant. And then Cologne. We stopped as per your instructions right in front of the hotel and were immediately taken care of by the attentive staff who whisked us and our luggage into the reception area. They apologized that our room was not ready, but not to worry, they upgraded us to a suite! Wow! Two wonderfully furnished rooms with adjoining bathroom and dressing room looking right out onto the Dom! What a view! And then we climbed the 509 steps up the Dom tower. I felt very proud of myself and was rewarded with fine views in every direction. We decided to splurge and eat at the hotel's restaurant that evening. Food had been very good all through France and the first few days in Germany, but this meal was exceptional. And the service was also excellent.

We look forward to arranging our next European holiday with you.

Best regards,

Margaret and Jim Darley
