Great couple and great tour. Once just could not go wrong when being with Paul and Shelley as their tourguide as they were free and easy going but most important to me was that they wanted to make every daylight hour work for them tourwise. This is exactly how I like to tour and thus had a wonderful time with this fabulous couple. We had so much in common that our travelling together simply flowed with ease.  All in all a great experience for me and I hope for the Mickelson's too.

THANKS FOR 3.5 GREAT DAYS
