LT, Malta

"Thank you so much for the fantastic holiday on the Sweden tour!!!! It was a new experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!


It was great meeting everybody and Mum and I would like to thank everybody for being such wonderful company".

D & L, South Wales

"Have just returned from a wonderful trip to Denmark and Sweden. This tour company is thoroughly recommended, very professional in every aspect and great tour companions. We didn't want the holiday to finish"!

G & J, Stourbridge

"We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Sweden. A lovely country and we were blessed with good weather.
 
Thank you for your efforts to make it an enjoyable holiday. We will certainly want to go to Sweden again. The tour was a good introduction to the country, which we found beautiful and interesting".

C & S, Derbyshire

"We were very impressed with the tour to Sweden that Crossings Motorhome Tours organised for a small group of motorhomers.


While travelling through Northern France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and then over the famous Oresund Bridge to Sweden, we stayed at well placed and spaced out overnight stops and experienced different types of camp sites.

 

It was always reassuring that in the event of a problem, help was readily available. Friendly advice was also offered and given on a daily basis about excursions and interesting places to visit. It was a 25 day holiday that we will always remember".

LM. Cambridgeshire

"Bob and Wendy were great. Really looked after us and nothing was too much trouble. I would never have undertaken a trip to France with my dogs on my own so this trip was a blessing. I now have the confidence to go it alone but having said that the group was really friendly and knowing that someone's looking out for you is very reassuring. I would highly recommend Bob and Wendy if you want someone to take all the stress out of it"!

D & G, Hampshire

"It's time we dropped you a line about the recent trip we had the pleasure and privilege of joining down the Rhine and Moselle. This was the first time we had joined an organised trip so we had signed up with just a little trepidation. How silly we were.

From the moment we joined up in Dover until the end of the trip two weeks later we always felt relaxed and comfortable which in no small part was due to your considerable research in putting the carefully planned itinerary together and your abundant enthusiasm in seeing everyone at ease and comfortable.

The party size was perfect, neither too big or small, and the sites chosen for the overnights were always to a pleasingly high standard. You seem to have pitched your offer ( as we have to call such things these days ) just right; satisfying the needs and apprehensions of both the first timer to European Motorhome travel experience and those with more experience, and what great value too.

We will join with you again and soon".

G & J, Nottinghamshire

"Thank you both for a memorable taste of Sweden made even better with glorious weather. The group size was small and friendly. All the sites were conveniently situated for one night stops or longer and had easy access into Stockholm and Copenhagen.  You were both fun to be with (you always managed to come and see us when we were eating, which we did quite often). The tour information and your knowledge gave us freedom to roam as well as suggestions of what to see each day. Thank you both very much".

J & L, Northern Ireland

"Wendy and Bob (the team) of Crossings Motorhome Tours impressed us with their easy going and confident manner during our first trip to France and a first for us with dogs as it was for the team, another new skill acquired by them.

 

The Eurotunnel with dogs going and coming back proved to be quite easy, a route we are likely to take again next year.

 

Although a short trip of only seven days it was well worth the time and effort we put in to find a suitable tour operator that catered for dogs. Each site we stayed at had ample space for dogs to be walked and exercised. The team worked hard to ensure we had a smooth and relaxing week, they were there at each campsite to ensure we were all taken care of, enroute to each site we could do as we pleased, there was no need to convoy which is not really practical and no time limit on arrival or departure from a camp site.

 

There are lots to see and do between campsites, my offer to finish the Tapestry in Bayeux was turned down, it would have been an easy fix, I’ll resign myself to sorting the team logo...

 

I would recommend this tour operating team to anyone thinking of travelling via motorhome to Europe, France is only one of many destinations that they cater for, look them up".

B & T, Surrey

"A brilliantly organised trip which encompassed well known and less well known locations. If we had organised the trip ourselves we probably would have missed the little known but very worthwhile visiting places, e.g. Simrishamn and Soderkoping.  

 

Great tour leaders for whom nothing was too much trouble. We plan to go on another of their jaunts in the near future".

J & G, York

"The Crossings 'Summer in Sweden' Tour was more than just three weeks of glorious sunshine in clean and friendly Scandanavia. It was also an experience, a glimpse of a different way of life from Abba to Vikings.  

 

The other motorhomes were a good bunch and all wanted some guidance but to be allowed space to explore. The leaders, Wendy and her assistant Bob, gave just this and went out of their way if anyone had a problem. We can highly recommend this tour".

D & J, Dorset

Thanks you once again for another enyable adventure! We thoroughly appreciated your organsation, help and friendship. 

 

"We can't think of any useful constructive comments for improvement so guess you got it just right!! Campsites, meals etc all very good. We are still passing the word around to anyone who will listen about your kind and caring attention".

I & P, Southampton

"The holiday was excellent, as we had anticipated, and there is nothing we could suggest changing. 

 

"Thanks again for a great time and all the efforts and  lengths you go to in order that everyone enjoys the adventure".

A & I, Nottingham

"We had an amazing time, better than expectations. Your professionalism together with helpfulness and friendliness made our holiday very special. All your hard work and efforts made the group's tour run very smoothly.

 

Your kindness and thoughtfulness were evident each day but unobtrusive. Your advice, guidance and recommendations were very good but everyone had the freedom of choice on activities, quiet time, or however they wished to plan a day."

D & M, Warwickshire

"Bob and Wendy offer an exceptional, professional and happy service to us motorhomers. Wether you are a novice or well travelled old timer, you cannot fail to enjoy yourself especially when all the hard planning work hase been done for you.

 

The 'Italian Job' proved sooooooo good, we signed up for 'The Hills are alive' trip....Austria/Switzerland...before coming home. Met some super people whom we hope to meet again one day.....if they can get booked up before trips sell out"!!!

T & L, St Helens

"We have just returned from our first Crossings Motorhome tour to Italy. What a pleasant experience it was from start to finish. Hosts Bob and Wendy made everyone feel at home from day one. The journey itself was planned through France to St Gervais at the foot of Mont Blanc to Lake Garda where we spent a week basking in the sun and taking in the various sights from Venice to Verona, to boat excursions to Garda town itself. 

The tour had a very relaxed feel with no pressure and suited everyone from first timer’s who need a guiding hand, to those like us who have travelled on the continent previously. Any concerns were dealt with by Bob and Wendy and it was good to have people to lean on when any minor incidents took place, from illness to forgotten items. It was noticeable on this trip that there were several second time travellers and we have already booked for the Sweden trip next year.

We would urge anyone who has not tried one of these trips before to give Crossings a try as Bob and Wendy seem to have a winning formula".

C & M, Northumberland

"I very much enjoyed my holiday with Crossings I can not find anything at all to fault it or complain about. The Italy tour was a well planned enjoyable and a very happy occasion with friendly and helpful fellow motor homers and staff.


It was my first holiday in my motorhome. My first time abroad in my motorhome. My first time with Crossings but it will not be my last. Crossings has instilled in me a lust for adventure now that I am retired and have given me the confidence I needed to go and do it.


Thanks you Bob and Wendy for taking me under your wing. To Wendy for helping me park. To Bob for looking so cool in every situation".

B & L, Berkshire

"We enjoyed our trip, just what we were looking for. 

 

Please send us your brochure for next year when ready. Many thanks"

D & J, Abingdon

"Having never taken our motorhome overseas before, Wendy & Bob ensured that our first trip was as smooth as possible. The itinerary gave us a great flavour of France with the tour allowing us plenty of freedom to explore Northern France, safe in the knowledge that the campsites were all organised and selected to provide great access to major tourist spots and local towns whist providing good facilities.

 

The attention to detail and personal commitment from Wendy & Bob to ensure everybody gets the most from the trip is exemplary. We would certainly book another trip with Crossings".

L & B, West London

"We were apprehensive taking our motorhome abroad for the first time. We need not have worried. You were very supportive and made it all easy. We felt we were with good friends. Thank you for a great time.

 

We are looking forward to doing this again, maybe next year.  Still in a motorhome of course! I may let him have electric bikes as a consolation prize!"

H & C, Aberdeenshire

"As usual the planning for the tour was impeccable...The coastal route to Amiens was beautiful and we arrived at the first site having stopped off en route at Montreuil sur Mer... Wendy took us to the bus stop to ensure that we knew where we were going and which bus route to take to go into the city and we had a most enjoyable day...We had a great evening together at the campsite and got to know each other.

 

We all set off independently for the next campsite outside Versailles...The campsite at Versailles is a lovely site once you get used to the pitches. It is a forest site and the pitches are terraced among the trees. The facilities are very good and the bar and restaurant were great for socialising...The train for Paris and Versailles were within easy walking distance. We spent two fantastic days sightseeing.

 

Bob and Wendy checked with everyone every night and morning to check that everything was ok and to sort out any queries. They instilled in everyone the confidence to motor on their own and we all managed to tackle the Periphique independently...We had a group meal at night of traditional French cuisine which was most enjoyable.   

 

Crossings Motorhome Tours are a very professional company and nothing is too much bother for them. They always go the extra mile to ensure that you have an enjoyable and trouble free holiday. Roll on the next one!!"

D & J, Horncastle

"After a very calm crossing we took the route down the Opal coast. We were very much taken with the wide open scenery, numerous beaches, variety of towns & villages plus the lack of other vehicles on the road. This is an area that a lot more time could be spent in.

 

Driving around the Periphique was very interesting as vehicles come at you from all directions. The sites location is very convenient for the train station & so makes venturing into Paris & the Versailles Gardens very easy.

 

On the first day we woke up to brilliant sunshine, which turned into a hot day for our visit to the Gardens of Versailles. The Versailles brochure says you need to allow two hours to walk around the garden before visiting the house. We ended up spending all day just walking around it, so the Palace will just have to wait until the next time...The following day was spent doing the normal touristy things in Paris.

 

Visiting some of the Commonwealth War Graves on route & the very informative exhibitions/museums, plus seeing the landscape gave us a far better understanding of the terrain & horrific conditions the soldiers had to endure in the First World War. The campsite near St Quentin is in the heart of the Somme region, is absolutely gorgeous & we could quite happily have stayed there for at least another week.

 

This was our second tour with Crossings. As usual the tour was well documented & organised. Bob & Wendy were on hand every day to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible".

D & E, Cambridgeshire

"I don't think the is anything we would change in the Taste of Holland tour. It was ideal as a first time venture with a motorhome abroad. All the information supplied was well researched and your local knowledge was first class and really appreciated, because of this we got a lot more out of the holiday than if we had gone solo.Look forward to the next Crossings tour".

D & S, Cornwall

"Thank you for your efforts on ensuring we had a most enjoyable and fun holiday. This was our first trip with Crossings and it delivered more than was written on the tin. The sites selected allowed us to venture to the many attractions and your attention to detail was much appreciated.

 

For us the “light touch” on allowing the group members to make their individual selections worked well, with the backup information always available from your knowledge base.

 

Every time we see a tulip we will be reminded of this trip, also you will be surprised to hear we have just about finished the cheese!  There is no doubt the new friends we met, like us, will be looking forward to next year’s brochure".

M & J, Chesterfield

"Thank you both for another brilliant holiday. We can honestly say that it was as brilliant as our Paris trip with you last year because you both made it easy and fun.

 

The forward planning and the wealth of experience that you both put into the trip really pays off for your guests as we enjoyed the whole adventure. The group completely gelled thanks to your ability to make it fun and adventurous. We cannot wait until September and our Italian trip with Crossings".

C & B, Sutton Coldfield

"I cannot think of any way you could improve this tour, from the way you looked after everyone so thoroughly (and happily) to the fantastic organisation of sites, ferry, information at each stop and help (you helped mend by bicycle, Bob!)

 

Best wishes to you both, and congratulations on making our first tour with you so memorable. 'Lang may your lum reek', as they say north of the border. Hope to travel with you again".

C & S, Coventry

"We are safely back and enjoying reflecting on a great holiday. We really enjoyed the trip and the company of everyone. Thank you for your hard work. 

 

Good company, good weather, lovely group meals and a great atmosphere from start to finish"!

S & J, Derbyshire

“We have just returned from a fabulous Italian Lakes and Cities trip with Crossings Motorhome Tours Ltd, hosted superbly by Bob and Wendy Reeves. From the initial briefing to the time we had to say our final goodbyes we were thoroughly looked after, with support and guidance being available to all guests 24/7. This took away any apprehension we had about travelling abroad for the first time in our Motorhome, making our holiday so much more enjoyable.

 

Crossings Motorhome Tours Ltd operate an itinerary which provides an overall structure for the trip, but one which also has in-built flexibility allowing you the freedom to do your own thing whenever you choose. We particularly liked the recommended stop-off sight-seeing opportunities on route to and from Lake Garda.

 

We would highly recommend Crossings Motorhome Tours Ltd for anyone considering an escorted tour abroad in the future”

K & C, Sutton Bromwich

"We both want to thank you for the fantastic holiday we have just had, your detail to organisation was superb and your level of interaction as tour leaders with us was exceptional. It also benefitted us greatly with your knowledge of the areas we visited so we could visit places we may have normally missed. 

 

The only thing we felt would have improved the holiday for our benefit would have been another night on the return journey at Guignicourt, only to delay the process of returning home. We hope in the near future to take up another of your tours (yet to decide which one though!!)"

B & M, Salisbury

"We have recently returned from a trip to the Italian Cities and Lakes with Bob and Wendy of Crossings Motorhome Tours. This was our second trip with them and probably will not be our last. Their attention to detail and friendliness to everyone is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and if you have a problem it is quickly sorted out.

 

We met a fantastic group of people, had some wonderful group meals and stayed in some stunning locations. A great holiday.Thank you both very much".

V & L, Surrey

"Just a short personal note to let you know we really enjoyed our first organised motorhome tour to Lake Garda. We had some trepidations before the start as we had not previously experienced this type of holiday with a motorhome and as part of a group. However, I have to say that these concerns proved to be completely unfounded as we enjoyed the holiday and even the travelling immensely. 

 

We must complement you on your organisational skills, the personal attention and time you take to ensure everyone on the trip was completely happy and comfortable. We have thought about the holiday a lot since we returned but we can't think of any negatives and are really struggling to come up with any suggestions for improvement".

D & J, Horncastle

"This is our third tour with Crossings and this has been the most adventurous tour (yet) we have taken with them. The routes and information provided give you the choice of either taking Toll or Non Toll Roads, or you can mix & match them to visit sites/towns etc you wish to visit on route.

 

The drive through France was excellent except for the shortage of fuel due to a National Strike/Blockade of refineries, but fortunately it did not cause us any problems.

 

Some of the campsites were 5 star with excellent restaurants & facilities that far exceeded what we have at home. Bern is a wonderful town to visit with a good mixture of things to see & do, we could easily have spent more time there. In Austria we visited the town of Innsbruck & later took the cable car up to the highest peak. Unfortunately the cable car broke down so we were stuck at the top for a lot longer than expected, but it is certainly something we will not forget in a hurry!

 

A coach trip up the Grossglockner was organised which was easier than driving up yourself, but alas the weather was not very kind that day, but what we did see was out of this world".

M & D, Warwickshire

"Bob and Wendy offer an exceptional, professional and happy service to us motorhomers. Whether you are a novice or well travelled old timer, you cannot fail to enjoy yourself especially when all the hard planning work has been done for you. The "Italian Job" proved sooooooo good, we signed up for "The Hills are Alive" trip....Austria/Switzerland...before coming home.Met some super people whom we hope to meet again one day.....if they can get booked up before trips sell out!!"

H & C, Aberdeenshire

"As usual the service from Crossings Motorhome Tours was excellent. All the arrangements were smooth and the sites were very good with excellent facilities. The scenery was wonderful and the drives were very scenic. Lake Achensee was beautiful and the drive up to it was fantastic.

 

Swarovski Crystal near Innsbruck is certainly worth visiting but give yourself plenty time. We went to Dachau on our way out of Germany it is a worthwhile visit and not far off the route for the next site. You meet lovely people with like minded interests and have lots of laughs.This is the third tour we have done with Crossings! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and are can't wait for our next one!!"

D & S, Staffordshire

"We would like to say a big thank you for looking after us on our recent trip with you to the Alps. Sue has always been apprehensive about travelling abroad in our motorhome and that was the reason we decided to go on an escorted tour. From the moment we booked to our arrival back home, you could have not been more helpful. Your communication and information on the tour mirrored the professionalism you showed throughout.

 

Another thing that was of great comfort, was meeting up with you and the other clients at a campsite close to Dover the day before crossing the Channel. This gave us the opportunity to ask any last minute queries and iron out any anxieties we may have still had. Thanks once again and we can’t wait to see you on the Sweden trip".

JC, Suffolk

"Reluctantly home after a very well organised trip to The Alps. As with all good things, they just don't  last long enough,  hey-ho!  Such a good way to discover stunning places without having to do the planning. The added bonus is travelling with a group of likeminded friendly folk.

 

Bob and Wendy have perfected the art of escorting  'Independent  Motorhomers' on tours!  No easy task? Sweden next..."

T & S, Bristol

"Thank you for arranging the Alps Tour. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves even if we took longer than other to arrive at most of the campsites! Thank you also for your help, support and patience. Nothing seemed too much trouble for either of you. 

 

We both think that it would be good to stay longer at some places, for example the campsite at Bruck, as there appeared to be many interesting things to see and do nearby. All the campites you chose were lovely and we would recommend them to our friends. Our favourites were the Austrian campsites.

 

The tour overall was very well organised and informative and our chosen routes were very picturesque! It was lovely that the whole group (leaders included) got on well and friendly banter between us all made the trip a most enjoyable experience".

T & L, Lancashire

"We travelled with Bob and Wendy for the second time and had another excellent trip. It was only a two week trip and we could have easily spent longer at each stop off point. The highlights were the Swiss capital of Bern and the three nights near Innsbruck at Zell am Zee.

 

The beauty of travelling with Crossings is the small number of vans, meaning a close group was developed by the end of the trip. Once again, Bob and Wendy were excellent hosts who provide assistance as and when required, leaving you to make your own plans and make the most of your holiday. They organised a coach trip up the Grossglockner which was amazing in both location and value for money.

 

The downsides, which are obviously out of Bob and Wendy’s control, are tolls and the weather. However, we have already booked for the upcoming Sweden trip and are looking forward to seeing them again".

A & N, West Yorkshire

"We enjoyed the tour and thought your customer service ethics second to none...you can't do enough to make sure the customer is happy".

R & D, Manchester

"Just a short note on the part of the Taste of Provence Tour that we took part in. The trip onthe whole was very good, instructions to the sites very informative as were the driections to each area...we felt that you did everything you could to help us and more beside".

D & K, North Yorkshire

"Thank you for a great tour, we both enjoyed it very much. The information you sent regarding the tour was first class. We were very happy with all the sites having been on the best pitches in Austria.

 

With being first time travellers abroad with the motorhome we had some concerns but the support  and information we received took our concerns away. The only downside for us, we could have stayed longer on some sites after the long drives.  Having a flexible booking for the return ferry was advantageous as we stayed longer. Finally a big thanks to everyone for the support for my bike ride".

J & S, Bristol

"Just to say we really enjoyed our recent tour. It was well organised and planned well and we were given everything we needed to have a carefree holiday.

 

We would recommend Crossings Motorhome Tours.  We enjoyed also meeting you both and making new friends on the tour".

M & P, Morecombe

"This just to thank you, again, for a great tour...it certainly got us into motorhoming. Thanks".

E & S, Manchester

"Just wanted to say thanks to you both for a brilliant trip and for looking after us all so well once again.

 

Hope Bob is feeling better and back to his "always hungry" self".

JC, Bury St Edmunds

"If you are wanting to explore Sweden and don't quite know where to start,  I thoroughly recommend letting Crossings Motorhome Tours show you the best places,  leaving  you to sit back,  relax and enjoy the company of like minded fellow tourers. 

 

Bob and Wendy share their extensive travel experiences with an unobtrusive, nothing is too much trouble, friendly assistance throughout the tour".

T & L, St Helens

"There are various reasons why someone may decide to book a guided tour, from the ‘Nervous at driving abroad’,’' ‘Need route planned for you’, ‘Good company’, ‘Safety in numbers’ or ‘Help and assistance should something go wrong’.

 

It is safe to say all of the above were provided on our 3rd trip with Crossings on the tour of Sweden.

 

Bob and Wendy’s services were required so often by various members of the tour that we renamed them ‘International Rescue’. It is fair to say that everyone certainly got value for money in that respect.

 

However, despite the various mishaps, we had a great time on this tour and we can see why it is their favourite destination. Even though we were travelling for 25 days, we only got a small taste of what Sweden and Denmark has to offer. A very diverse country from beaches to countryside and lakes to cities. It has so much to offer and the locals are ultra friendly in this beautiful place. We will definitely be going back to some of the places we visited to explore further, in particular Stockholm and Copenhagen. Lidkoping and Kalmar are also on our list. It is safe to say that Sweden tour has something for everyone and there is no one better qualified than Bob and Wendy to show you".

D & L, Kent

"Please pass on our thanks to Dave and Sue [and] thanks for two really interesting tours.

 

We learned a great deal about all the places we visited over the seven weeks and feel we have started to move out of the 'novice' category...we shall see".

A & J, Dorset

"Well, as I hope you know, we had a great time with everyone, and are really glad we were able to join the group. I don’t think we’d have been as adventurous on our own as the miles through Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany would have seemed very daunting.

 

I found it very relaxing to have our itinerary mapped out for us and all the sites booked, as that would usually be my job. For each journey there was advice on places we might like to visit on or near the route, and at every destination more advice on where to go and what to do - with the alternative of just doing nothing if wished. Plus all the important stuff that goes with that information, like bike routes and the nearest bus stop and railway station, not to mention local shops and hypermarkets. 

 

The tour pack you provided always gave us all the information we needed on where we were going and when, and was backed up by your input once we reached the sites.  

 

We enjoyed everyone’s company and appreciated the relaxed tone of the whole tour - apart from turning up at a campsite before it closed for the night, it didn’t matter if you arrived first or last, you could take as long as you liked. And the biggest plus for the Crossings tour was your stewardship. Patiently and efficiently sorting out minor problems, and our major ones, seemed to be second nature for you both and we couldn’t be more impressed and grateful".
