Where to start....
I should be thanking you.
We all had a brilliant time and I have described it to
my colleagues as the best holiday of my life.
Jeff was amazing he made us feel at ease with him from
the first night and with him taking pictures it left us
more time to enjoy everything.
I didn't think seeing the hollywood sign and going over
the golden bridge could be topped but seeing Shelleys reaction
to the Charmed House was priceless.
The way Jeff set up the sighting of the Charmed House added
to the enjoyment, he pretended to be lost so he had Shelley
looking out for it.
The car was prefect for our trip and Shelley used the
back seat as a cinema (her DVD player) then stretched out
I think Dad was the most surprised, he just kept saying,
i enjoyed that, i enjoyed that. Of course Arsenal beating
Man United helped. We watched it in the MGM as the Crown
and Anchor wanted to charge $10 each and on principle I
wouldn't pay it.
The Grand Canyon was a very long trip ... going there was
ok as we stopped at Williams.
The best thing about having Jeff was we didn't need to
waste full days doing things that a few minutes could cover.
If we booked tours they would have included things that
we wouldn't have wanted to see or stay for hours at places
that didn't need that long at.
Hotels ... Travelodge in Las Vegas was prefect .... i would
recommend that, Crown Plaza wasn't really near anything
maybe a beach front hotel would have been better (not that
we had any spare time to stroll), The lady who checked us
in at San Simeon was very cheeky as our keys won't work
and she tried to suggest I wasn't opening the door correctly(new
keys worked), Sheraton in San Francisco was perfect (we
got some pool time) and was near plenty of shops for mum,
and dad could see the boats. The embassy suites were luxurious
and the free breakfast set us up for the flight home, the
hotel also had free shuttle to airport and you could check
in for the flight in the hotel.
Jeff fitted in well with my family and I hope he enjoyed
being part of it for nearly 10 days. He seemed to know what
we wanted so we left the decisions up to him. He even took
us to great places for food which I thought would be hard
as Shelley and I are very particular in what we eat.
Highs for me .... seeing the surfers and joining them on
the beach, hollywood sign really close up, golden gate bridge,
oh and driving on route 66 (oh was i allowed to mention
Shelley .... the charmed house, buffy's house and school,
seeing heath ledgers joker outfit at Warner Brothers
Dad... the beautiful churches and hearst castle, streets
of San Francisco.
Mum.... Shops in Las Vegas, Shops at Fishermans Wharf and
So you can see we all enjoyed different things.
Only low was the long drive to the Grand Canyon but I would
still recommend people to see it. It was breathtaking. We
didn't stay long but long enough to admire and take photos.
We do not have any bad feed back and if i had i would not
be backward at telling you.
Many Many Thanks Wendy
