We had planned to do Tour 3 with Thistle during our cruise. Unfortunately, our cruise was cancelled yesterday due to corona virus. Maxine is great and has already transferred our money in less than 24 hours back. We'll be back in 2021 or 2022? :-)

We were very disappointed to cancel this tour when our cruise was cancelled but were EXTREMELY pleased when we were given our refund instantaneously and heard from the owner. She expressed her disappointment about not being able to take us on the tour. This is definitely a company that cares about its customers and we will be booking with them when we travel again

In this pandemic we unfortunately had to cancel. I was quite pleased with the quick response and personalized note from Maxine. In addition to making the change effortless she also suggested smaller groups which might be more appealing in the future as we plan to rebook the same cruise ports next year. Hats off to the Tour Operator for her efforts to create a win win for both parties. I will re-book once the new cruise is planned.
