    PLEASE DO NOT POST HERE! Posting comments spams inboxes of 50 people (everyone on RSVP list) with messages they don't need and we have had complaints about it in the past. If you have any queries, please email them directly to me on [masked].

    • Kat

      Hi Shahzad, I'm not sure why would you post a comment like that? We have had plenty of excellent trips so far and we do generally make things happen. I don't think we have met, and so I don't think you had any bad experience with me - so I'm not sure where does the negativity come from? Please email me directly if you have any questions or comments as posting here generate emails to everyone and spams everyone's inboxes with messages they don't need.
