Beautiful Beaumaris, Anglesey October 2021 

Just to say thank you for yet another lovely trip with Wisteria. I don’t know how you do it  but each trip is a gem.  All 3 of you seem to have the happy knack of making each and everyone of your customers feel special, and that makes such a difference to us all.  Long May you keep up and I certainly hope to be a customer of yours for a long time to come.


I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for such a happy and interesting visit to Beaumaris. I feel as if I have rested in many ways. A real tonic. I look forward to a return visit next year.


Thank you once again for a great introduction to Wysteria trips with the lovely visit to Anglesey!  Your care in helping me to manage my disability meant everything to me. I very much appreciated your kindness.


Thank you for brilliantly effective organising of the Beaumaris tour. Although only two days duration, it seemed much longer as there were so many enjoyable and interesting experiences packed in – yet without rushing anything. Magic. It was a really good break for the three of us and we have benefitted hugely from the change. The Bulkeley Hotel was a fab place to stay.


Just to thank you again for a most enjoyable trip – the hotel was really good, with friendly, helpful staff and good food –not to mention a splendid location – definitely a place to return! I enjoyed the train ride, though it would have been nice to be able to see a bit farther – but nothing we could do about the weather! Friday’s weather was perfect, though, and I was really interested in going to Penman Point and seeing also the old buildings there. Plas Newydd is always worth a visit, particularly on such a fine day.


Gardens of Yorkshire September 2021

A very, very big thank you for organising such a successful and enjoyable  holiday. Charlie and I enjoyed it very much. It is so lovely to go away and not have to think about driving, finding places to park, hotels etc.

You, Sue and your Mom work so hard to make sure everyone is included and enjoying themselves. You make it look effortless and I know from experience when I was teaching and organising educational visits and experiences, that effortless, it is not.

Every place we visited offered something different, it was brilliant. Lakeside coaches are also exceptional.


Good morning Jacky

Just to say a very big thank you for a most relaxed and enjoyable trip to Yorkshire Dales

I trust you slept well last night knowing all your work organising it was a huge success

I look forward to my next trip with you to The Peak District


Dear Jacky

Just a line to thank you very much for a great holiday in the gardens of Yorkshire.

I was slightly apprehensive to be going on my own but I need not have worried – I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Dear Jacky and Sue,

Once again I thank you for an enjoyable four days in Yorkshire. It sounds like a week, when I recall all that we did.


York Tour – Castle Howard and a day in York visiting the Christmas Markets 1st – 2nd December 2019

Thank you so much for planning the trip to York – you organise it so well and think of everything. We really enjoyed it.  The Christmas dinner party on Sunday evening was a great success, too. We are still in “holiday mode” today!

Porthmadog to Caernarfon – One Of The World’s Great Railway Journeys – 18th September 2019

Hi Jacky
Many thanks for a lovely day out yesterday. My mother thoroughly enjoyed it. Sue Shrewsbury 21st September 2019

Dear Jacky,

Thank you for all the behind the scenes work involved in organising such an enjoyable day. Having the weather arranged was amazing. I quickly felt included as one of the group. Catherine, shrewsbury 21st September 2019

RHS Wisley and Kew Botanical Gardens 14th – 15th September 2019

Hi Jacky, First of all Charlie and I would like to thank you for making last weekend at Wisley and Kew so good. We had an excellent time. ( thanks for organising the weather too!) Gail, Shrewsbury 17th September 2019

Forgmore House and Buckingham Palace Tour – 3rd – 4th August 2019

Many thanks for a lovely weekend, you did so well to coordinate everything. Great to meet up with friends. Catherine, Shrewsbury 5th August 2019.

Thank you Jackie and the team for a lovely couple of days.  Superb as ever. Chris, 5th August 2019

Dear Jacky,

Just a note to thank you for a wonderful weekend. As an event organiser myself I know just how much hard work goes into the ‘behind the scenes’ planning stage, and how stressful it is when things outside your control threaten to play havoc with the day.

However all went well, and the Lakeside driver certainly saved the day on Sunday. The Palace was stunning of course, but Saturday was also interesting and it was lovely that the sun came out for us at Waterperry!

I’ll certainly book with you again, and will leave Wisteria Tours leaflets at key points in Oswestry.

Kindest regards, Pam, Shrewsbury 5th August 2019.

Dear Jacky

Just to say a big thank you for your organisation of the weekend.  It was really enjoyable .  Waterperry Gardens was beautiful.  We must have seen it at it’s best.  Frogmore was very interesting but I would not have liked to live under the flight path.  The noise would have driven me mad.  Although it is in the middle of London , Buckingham Palace is so much quieter and a real gem to see.  Driver Doug form Lakeside was very good at getting round the traffic and making excellent time.  You must be relieved that your first journey to London is done so Well done.

Regards, Moira, Shrewsbury 5th August 2019

Thankyou Jackie for a most memorable weekend. Each venue had something special to offer and I enjoyed being cared for in your special way!  I look forward to joining you again in the future. Chris, Shrewsbury 5th August 2019

Chatsworth Trip

I really enjoyed the trip to Chatsworth. You organised it very well. We fitted everything in: the house, the buggy ride in the garden and lovely baguettes, tea and cake in the stables. We thought the fashion exhibition was spectacular. I was expecting it to be good, but the setting and the lighting really made it outstanding. The coach was very comfortable too, and a very steady careful driver. A very successful day! So thank you for organising it. Looking forward to the Coughton trip. Gill from Shrewsbury’

Cambridge Trip

The tour to Geoff Hamilton’s Garden, A day in Cambridge and visit to Grimsthorpe Castle, from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th April, was excellent. The coach- from Lakeside Coaches, Ellesmere was excellent and comfortable, The leadership by Jacky was friendly, well managed and made poor weather also not-noticed! I would recommend Wisteria Tours to anyone wanting opportunity for a short break where you have no pressure on you for an enjoyable experience! Deryk Shrewsbury 2018,

Want to thank you for such an enjoyable weekend. We enjoyed the hotel, the luxury coach, the choices of gardens, but what was particularly impressive was your organisation of the trip. I don’t think you forgot a thing, even to the cover for keeping our map dry!  We are already looking forward to our next holidays with you, to Highgrove in June and then to Bath, Wells and Sudeley castle.  With best wishes from John and Gill

Thank you so much for organising last weekend, I thoroughly enjoyed it in spite of the miserable weather, I thought the hotel and guides were excellent.  Best wishes, Ann

 Kent Trip

Just to thank you again for a most enjoyable tour. I though all the places were very carefully chosen to give us lots of variety and contrasts. I had been rather apprehensive beforehand because of the heat, but, thanks partly to an endless supply of water on the coach, and shady areas in most of the gardens, it wasn’t too much of a problem. Best wishes, Pat

South East Tour

Thank you both so much for this weekend.  I am in total admiration for the amount of work you put in and the attention to detail; I have had the best time ever.  Chris Shrewsbury July 2018
