Good Morning Nancy
I just wanted to thank you so much for a fantastic day yesterday. Guests had an amazing time, both the sightseeing and the evening museum visit and party.
This is the first time we have worked together and I was really impressed the quality of guides, drivers and vehicles and the activities.
We now know the tours so can adjust our description to explain them better.
Looking forward to seeing you again in Cannes. For today’s tours I will coordinate with Anna on the ship.
I hope this email finds you well! My mom just sent me the lovely gift you gave us – thank you so much!! We will for sure be using the bags to keep our bottles of wine cool and to entertain in French style :)!! Dan and I both said that you and your knowledge of Sete and the surrounding area made our trip! Thank you for making it so special and for the thoughtful gift.
All my best.
Nancy – thank you so much it was wonderful visiting your town and we know why you love being there – when we left you we went down to the canal and enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and talked about all we saw and did – we appreciate your high standards and look forward to tomorrow – and now when in Alabama we can say sante y’all
We had a wonderful time today. Eric was such a dedicated and accomplished guide. We learned so much and he made it interesting. We enjoyed all the wines and were able to take a few bottles onboard with us, no hassle. We had a great lunch in the delightful Cassis and were back to the ship in plenty of time. All in all it was a most memorable day. Rudy and I want to return to spend a month in the area. Thank you so much to you and Eric for your efforts on our behalf.

Pleasure meeting you last Friday! And the DeLucas did love their class, they thought it was superb. Hope to see you again, maybe I can bring you a group!
