We have never been on any holiday or tour that was as special as your Joy tour. And I don’t think we realise what hard work it is to organise & manage everything the way you do! Thank you SO much for everything the two of you did for us. And please thank the Joy team for us as well. You are a stunning couple & we will most definitely go on tour with you again some time in future. Take care & lots of love.

"Thank you very much for a wonderful, professional and organized tour.
My husband and I wanted something special for our 25th wedding anniversary and we got everything and more to treasure it forever. This tour was for me personally more about the amazing and interesting people in our tour group ( and the amazing sites that we saw) than about the tour itself. Thank you once again for making it possible to have a fantastic trip with lifelong memories.
May God bless the wonderful work you and your Mom do at JOY! Magazine.'
