Fewer Tours Going Forward



2020 is PACKED with tours. As a result I will be significantly reducing the number of trips in 2021. 


There will be NO Edinburgh tour in 2021. If you are interested in researching in Edinburgh, there are two spaces left for the Sept 2020 tour. Once they are gone, that will be it for the forseeable future.
