Today is International Women's Day and we thought we would share some of the wonderful feedback we have received for Tour Managers including Julia Corden, Alison Reid and Maureen Lightbody. 

Our excellent Tour Managers truly are at the heart of everything we do and it's always a treat to hear how much they have enhanced guests' holidays with their passion, knowledge and personable natures.

Guests who travelled with Maureen Lightbody on our Grand Tour of the Outer Hebrides holiday, 5th October 2021

“She was very knowledgeable, and able to integrate her own personal stories appropriately. She had good relationships with everyone, she was able to make a difficult decision about sailing to Barra, and then reorganise the day to be very interesting around Uists and Benbecula.”

“Extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Nothing was a problem for her. Smiled throughout the holiday and was always cheery and helpful. A credit to Brightwater.”

“We could not believe the amount of information that she knew about the attractions, but also the area and villages that passed. She really amazed us.”
