Some stellar feedback received from a Snr. Officer on board the Holland America Line’s MS Prinsendam after taking a shorex to Minterne House.

Best tour ever! Truly enjoyed this tour from beginning until the end. The very personal tour by Lord Digby (91)! and his son was fabulous. The house was open, we could just go where we wanted. Unheard of in English country homes! They are usually run by the National Trust and a lot of rooms would be cordoned off. We could just immerse ourselves into the life and times of the people from “Downton Abbey”. The gardens are the most spectacular I’ve ever seen with species from all over the world. Thanks!
