JUST FINISHED THE ACORN TOUR WITH TRANSCENDENT TRAVEL. ANDREW AND HIS CREW WERE WONDERFUL. THEY NOT ONLY DELIVERED THE PLACES I WAS INTERESTED IN BUT PEOPLE I WAS INTERESTED IN. STARS FROM AGATHA RAISIN (AND M.C.BEATON, HERSELF), DOC MARTIN AND MIDSUMMER MURDERS ! AUTHORS! AND SPECTACULAR PLACES. ANDREW MORE THAN DELIVERED!! AND THE ESTATES WE STAYED AT WERE BEAUTIFUL, I ONLY WISH WE’D HAD MORE TIME TO ENJOY THEM!! I LOOK FORWARD TO MY NEXT TRIP.

As a lover of PBS and the excellence of British programming, it is a great pleasure to present To The Manor Born, a seven-day tour designed to include many of the sights you know so well from public television and other iconic British programs seen on WNED | WBFO. From the glories of Highclere Castle (as seen in Downton Abbey), the beloved Devon estate of Agatha Christie, to the seaside village in Cornwall used in Doc Martin – this exclsive tour will be a memorable journey for each person involved.

The joy of leading tours in England is a great passion of mine. My own vast experiences in the United Kingdom have created a wealth of knowledge that I intend to share with you during this unforgettable tour. Each hotel, attraction, restaurant or experience has been carefully selected to ensure that our time together is memorable from start to finish. Not just memorable, but special and unique.
