Customer Reviews

A Whitecroft tour is no ordinary tour….in fact it is not like a tour at all…..more like taking amazing day trips with a friend! Imagine unpacking your bags just once only where you will stay in a unique and historical location for the entire tour……no repacking each morning - bliss! Wake to a five star breakfast with a small group of soon to be friends as you wonder what the day will bring. The coach awaits you to take you to places that have been opened just for you….and maybe even the Lord and Lady of the Manor will show you around and make you a cup of tea! Each day ends with fine wine and dinner and all the time being cared for and treated like a friend……and not forgetting the unexpected surprises along the way! Lifelong memories like this will live with you forever

Such a cliche but truly a trip of a lifetime. Great people, beautiful places, gorgeous food and of course everything Jane. My only regret is that I can't do it again next year. Love love love it.

I had the most amazing time. This was definitely a trip of a lifetime. The places we went, the food, the company, everything was first class. Helen, Jane and Katrina are a class act. I wish I was going again in 2018
