Your Testimonials

Oh, my, Lin, what a super morning visiting Chavenage House! Our tour guide, Caroline, was full of fascinating facts but, at the same time, had us in fits of laughter.  Best guide ever.  As I had never heard of the place, everything was a treat including the super lunch.  Somebody surely should write a sitcom about this family and their wonderful home.The afternoon visit to Bath plus tea at Sally Lunn’s made it almost a treat too far, but I coped!  Thank you.

Summer Mystery Tour - June 2019

Hi Lin just want to say what a great day it was yesterday on the mystery tour. The first stop at Chavenage was amazing and the daughter as a guide was so entertaining it made the tour even more special and the food was delicious. The  trip to Bath was so unexpected and for me just like going home and remembering all the good time we had there as kids.it was magic.The icing on the cake was the cream tea at Sally Lunns what a way to end the day. All mystery tours have been amazing but this one for me beats all.Thanks once again! Hils x

Summer Mystery Tour - June 2019

Well….what a holiday! I very much enjoyed it and can see why you returned again this year. It was like going to stay with friends, the family were so welcoming. It was a good mix of things to do and I thought the cookery classes were good fun. I loved the party (every holiday should have one) and thought we had a nice group of people…..as Ulla said. The travelling went smoothly, especially with you booking the plane seats in advance. Am thinking about next year!

The Galapagos Islands with Solent Events on Tour & Celebrity Cruises on MS Xpedition
This holiday of a lifetime far exceeded my expectations. To be so close to sea lions and blue footed boobies that you could almost stretch out and touch them was magical. They trusted us so much that I was humbled and honoured to be there with them. Patsie x

Dear Lin
We have just arrived home after 12 days away, and have found the beautiful photograph from our wonderful day on the Orient Express. Thank you so much. We are absolutely delighted with it and it is a lovely memory of a most enjoyable day. We are making an album of the experience and are putting the excellent collages in that, but the photo from you is going on our wall. With very many thanks again, and for all the special touches on the day.

Dear Lin, Thank you for a lovely day out on Tuesday at Henley.  It was a great surprise, and a lot of hard work for you.  But it took us all away to another world and away from the daily routine of life! Take care of yourself and take time to relax. With love and best wishes. Joan

Tina Turner Musical - January 2019

Dear Lin
What a lovely day on Wednesday – many thanks for organising it. I thoroughly enjoyed the show and it’s interesting to see how different companies interpret the same story. I saw Nutcracker a few years ago in Guildford with a Russian company, but you can’t beat the English National Ballet. The Coliseum Theatre was so beautiful, an experience in itself – and my seat was very good indeed. Happy Christmas and a great new year – enjoy Cuba! Erica.

Nutcracker Ballet - December 2018

Thanks for a lovely day out yesterday with NO RAIN! The English National Ballet NUTCRACKER was superb. I have seen a few productions, including the Royal Ballet, but this dancing was exquisite and the whole thing a total delight. Probably helped by being in the BEST seats I have ever had at such a major event! THANK YOU. Best wishes, Sheila

Thank you for organising another lovely day in London – even the rain stayed away! Janet and I thoroughly enjoyed Strictly Ballroom and the ‘surprise’ extra tour of London illuminations and the diversion on the M27!  You certainly know how to spoil us!
Enjoy today and your future trips and see you soon.

I just wanted to say what a brilliant day we had at the Races. We thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

Kempton Park Race Day - August 2018

Dear Lin
I have just enjoyed our recent holiday to the Western Isles and Scotland so much.  Not knowing what to expect and then being completely blown away with the stunning scenery, it was just gorgeous. Well, everything was!  I can see why Doro, our guide, decided to move to the island of Lewis from Germany.
Thank you for your marvelous organisational skills and for every detail, and of course Nigel with his excellent driving and sense of humour just made for a good time. I look forward to my next trip with you.
With hugs, Franki

Hi Lin
I just wanted to thank you to you, skipper Guy and owner Simon (not forgetting Diva) for a wonderful day.  The whole experience was one that will not be forgotten …… Living the dream! Thanks also for your wonderful hospitality and allowing us to be part of your ‘family’.  The lunch was first class and the refreshments were a welcome treat – thank you!
I know ‘the girls’ also had a wonderful time and I am sure you’ll be seeing us again ….
Wishing you all many successful tours on Diva ….. Bon voyage!

Luxury Motor Yacht Cruise Away-Day - April 2018

I have now been on a lot of holidays and day trips with Lin and have never had anything to complain about. I have also made a lot of new friends.
Our trip to PERU was out of this world. Nothing was left to chance and Lin ensured that we had a really good time, with plenty of things to see and do. Even if there was nothing planned, Lin always made sure we had something to keep us occupied.
It is really great going on a holiday with Solent Events, wherever it may be. You know that you don’t have to think about anything but enjoying yourself …. as any problems are solved before you even know about them! If you are by yourself you are never alone – unless you want to be, as you are always made to feel part of the group.

Fly & Dine Hovercraft Experience

Thank you Lin, for the lovely photos of our fabulous day out last Tuesday. We were both overwhelmed by the beautiful yacht and also your hospitality, which was more than generous. It was all beyond our expectations, and an event we will remember for the rest of our lives.
If you are doing further trips like that later in the year we would be very interested in knowing about them. We wouldn’t mind doing it all again! Our friend Gareth also enjoyed himself, so a big success all round! Please thank Guy and Simon for making it all possible. Till next time, grateful thanks.

Dear Lin

 I have just sat and read your newsletter and I am definitely opting in.  I do not want to miss out on your tours etc.  The Newsletter was very interesting to read with so many wonderful days out and holidays to plan ahead.  Anne and I are interested in your Mystery Tour, which we went on last year.  Great fun.

You have worked so hard to get where you are today and having seen first-hand a tour guide who never ever said “hello or good morning” when we were on the coach, it made me realise what you put in to your trips for us.   So much attention to detail. 
Monica Parrish - Southampton

Mystery Tour

We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I am so glad I found Solent Events. It is so much more fun going with other like minded people and takes the responsibility out of driving.
