Fran is wonderful. Always ready with a smile and a warm welcome. His trips are very enjoyable and interesting. He obviously loves his home and is proud to share all the history and customs with the world. His evenings at home with his wife are legendary. I think everyone loves his trips and evenings in. I will always join any tour he is offering. Thanks so much
