William explained that the nave had round-headed arches and had been built by the Normans.
"Gee! We have them in the States, you know, at Salt Lake City," Mr Murray remarked to his wife.
"Honey, I think those are 'Mormons'. He said 'Normans'."
William Simpson has everything he wants in life except a girlfriend. He loves his job, guiding coach tours of France, but he has never forgotten his schooldays and the bullies, prefects and teachers who made his adolescence a misery.
One day his boss offers him ten complimentary places on his next tour. Rather than take his friends, William looks up his old enemies, and invites them on a free holiday none of them will ever forget. Remembering their personalities, interests and foibles, William is determined to get his revenge in a very special way!
At the same time our hero has to look after a motley group of real holidaymakers, maintain the Entente Cordiale in his dealings with French hoteliers, save his coach driverís marriage and find out if he really is falling in love with his bossís bus-mad secretary - or she with him?
As Tour F443/07 wends its way through rural France, William wonders whether any of his victims will recognise him, and whether they will make it back home! While his passengers fill up on vin ordinaire, he discovers new uses for a Norwegian Tourist Board video and an old halfpenny.
A hilarious story about romance, money, revenge, cheap wine, bad coffee and an AEC Regent V with Park Royal bodywork.
