Paris to Madrid, May 2014
The tour was well organised and a fantastic itinerary. Serena was an exceptional leader and was so well organised and prepared with information and suggestions to enhance the experience. She has a bubbly personality and demonstrated enthusiasm and encouragement for activities and points of interest. Serena dealt well with differing personalities and demonstrated patience and empathy when required. I would be more than happy to recommend her as leader and to travel with her in the future
