Hello Mike

A quick note to say we finished the 2021 Mike Kirk tours of the unknown parts of the UK in style. Well, you can’t beat lunch on the Orient Express can you.

Many thanks indeed for another excellent tour. We look forward to more details of your 2022 tours when available..

Best wishes Ray and Ruth

Hi Mike,

First, I have to say how much Alison and I enjoyed our recent tour. We will certainly be booking another one next year when the dates settle.

See you in 2022, regards, David

Hi Mike

Just to say thank you for another fine tour. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour and in particular the varied scenery that we travelled through.

Nice to meet up with some old friends again. We had a good journey home , no road blocks.

All being well we hope to join you again next year.

Cheers, Martyn and Carol (Smith)

Hi Mike

Just a brief note to say how much we enjoyed the two Tours we participated in this year.

The Welsh Borders and Shropshire Tour was superb and the Fishmore Hall at Ludlow fulfilled all of our expectations.

The Autumn Railways Tour was, as always, a brilliant drivers route complemented by the autumn colour and scenery. The finishing touch, of lunch on The Orient Express, made it a tour to remember.

Given the difficulties that you must have encountered this year your organising skills have been very much appreciated and we look forward to further tours in 2022.

Best Wishes, Martin and Carol (Groves)

Many thanks for all your preparation for The Autumn Railways Tour’21. We had a great time in spite of our late arrival on Tuesday! It was lovely to see people we had met in July and meet up with some new faces

We both look forward to joining you again in 2022.

Many thanks again and kind regards, Judith Parker

Hi Mike.

Yet another Heineken tour with a touch of Harpic.

“The Tour Manager who reaches parts no other does on Kirk roads that go right around the bend”

 see you in October.

Best Wishes Mike and well done on a great tour of Scotland. Ray and Ruth.

Hi Mike,

Just a rather belated note to say thank you for a great tour last week. It was so good to get together again in something approaching normal circumstances. The hotel was excellent and the food was superb. All-in-all, very enjoyable.

We’re really looking forward to the Autumn Railways tour in October and I think , so hopefully we’ll be out with you in 2022 too.

Kind regards, Glen Mitton

Hi Mike, we both had a great time on the ‘Ludlow’ trip and thought the hotel, food and company were excellent.

Regards, Kevin & Dilys

Hi Mike

Firstly, many thanks for a super Shropshire & Welsh Borders tour.  Excellent routes with very little traffic, first class hotel, and even the weather behaved itself. 

The hotel could not have been more accommodating.  Definitely a venue to use again, lovely rooms, really helpful and professional staff, and superb food –

See you in a couple of weeks!

Best regards, Helen & Brian


I’m sure you,ve had a flood of Thank You’s for the recent Tour , so I will add ours to it.

As usual an excellent choice of  Hotel in the Fishmore Hall, staffed by the friendliest and helpful young people we have come across in quite a while .

The Food was also first class, not sure about Fine Dining as we don’t know what that is.

Not only are your Routes interesting and well timed but we come away with  extra knowledge . We now know about the Stiper Stones ,Micro Brewing , How people once lived in a Red Sandstone cliff , and to be  ready to cope with ROAD CLOSED!

Thanks very much Mike, yours Jan and Ann

Hi Mike,

To echo Judith, really enjoyed the last tour, hotel great, route and weather fantastic. 

Kind regards, John.  

Hi Mike,

Just a quick note to thank you for the tour, excellent route and instructions as always. I was a bit sore from my swimming adventure but Chris did not make one mistake and the Hotel was excellent. Wednesday afternoon was hard work with 30 degree heat but better than rain of course.  Look forward to seeing you for Scotland, have a good Welsh Borders tour.

Cheers Derek & Chris.

Hi Mike,

We arrived home mid afternoon yesterday after two wonderful days on the Lakes and Dales Tour 2021.

Your preparation and attention to detail was greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to another Tour.

Many thanks and kind regards, Judith & John Parker


Feed back, Good hotel we would certainly go there again, Good routes for both Navigator and Driver. Overall the whole event was a success and very tempted to give it a 9.91. But you may just rest on your laurels so yet again a highly commendable 9.9.

We are now looking forward to the Welsh Tour in a couple of weeks time.

Mike, many thanks for all your efforts in organising yet another brilliant Heineken tour.

Best wishes, Ray and Ruth.  

Thank you so much for giving us a really good time driving around the lanes of Yorkshire and the Lake District . We enjoyed ourselves so much and it was such a relief to do something normal again and talk to people. . Thanks again. Love Anne xx (and Malcolm)

Hi Mike

Firstly a big thank-you for the Lakes & Dales tour we’ve just got home. 

The Villa Hotel at Levens was good a good base.

We’re looking forward to the next tour in just 18 days time!  BRIAN AND HELEN.
