"I would like to thank all the staff at Powderham Castle for making our visit so informative and enjoyable. Everybody in our group had a wonderful time and the tour was the non-stop topic of conversation for the rest of the day, Powderham was the perfect venue!"  

"What a great visit we had, thank you so much for making it such a success it could not have gone better! Please do extend my thanks to all the team including the guides who all helped to make the visit very memorable. I am sure that in the coming months Johnsons Tours will be visiting and I know they will not be disappointed."
