We had a great time on this trip, from the experience to the quality of the accommodations and the overall experience was beyond our expectations! Mary Beth did a great job with planning each day as to not overwhelm us in experiences but also show use quality & historical sites. The bus was very comfortable and our driver was five stars. I would definitely do another trip with Stevie J Travel and would recommend everyone go to see the P. Allen Smith Gardens!
