Thank you for an excellent Vacation to the Rose Bowl Parade

Kathy and Paul, London, ON - (trip to Pasadena CA USA)

We made it home yesterday and it was a great vacation.  The YMT Tour Group was excellent, very well organized.  They are the largest tour group that does the Rose Parade tour package, over 1200 people, in four hotels were there for the parade this year.  The optional's that we chose were great.  The cable car ride was fun and Chinatown dinner was excellent.  The only problem with the wine tour is that they stopped in between two wineries at a very expensive upscale town center square for 2 hours of shopping which wasn't in our wallet range.  No one on the bus was very impressed.  I wish that they had just taken us to another winery or a more appropriate shopping mall.  There was a Napa Premium Outlets Mall which for our bus group would have been a better choice.  The only other problem the last 3 days was of course the weather, but it is California in January so we couldn't expect anything different.

The hotels were great as well.  The best one was the one in Pismo Beach, The Cliffs.  Very upscale. The Holiday Inn Express in San Francisco was in a great location, we could walk right down to Fisherman's Wharf and all the shopping and restaurants there.

Your travel arrangements were great as well.  Two small blips, we were late leaving Toronto because of the ice storm the night before.  Several flights were either delayed or cancelled due to that storm.  Then on arrival back in London, Mitchell was chosen to be the poster boy on our flight for CBS and was randomly selected for a bag search.  Lucky Mitchell. 

There was so much more to see and do to tell you, but I am sure that you will be hearing from Bonnie, as I know they are going to Mexico, and she will fill you in on more.

Thank you. Jennifer, for arranging this excellent vacation.
