Recently my 90 yr. old mother and I had the extreme pleasure of visiting Malta and having Joan as our private guide. Over the course of the 2 days we spent with her I was touched by her knowledge and passion for the history of her home and willingness to share it with us in a way that was informative but not overwhelming. Joan was extremely courteous and aware of the needs of my elderly mother and varied our itinerary to meet her needs without us missing any of the magnificent sights. By the end of our all too brief time with Joan my mother and I both felt as if we weren't being led around by a guide, but were being shown a precious jewel by a wonderfully passionate friend. She was instrumental in making this the trip of a lifetime!!
