    Dear Sir/Madam:



    The aim of this letter is to request further information about Lake Garda Ski Resort. We have read the information leaflet in our travel agency, and there are still some points that we would like to clarify.



    Firstly, we would like to know if there are any interesting cultural visits in the surroundings, as such villages of historical interest, museums, etc. As well, we are interested in natural landscapes and excursions in the nature near the Ski Resort. Particularly, we are interested in excursions that could be made with children. Regarding to both this kind of visits (cultural tours and excursions in the nature) we would like to know if there are guided tours.


    Secondly, we are interested in nature sports near the Resort. In particular we would like to recieve information about canoeing and rafting in the area.



    Lastly, we wanted to ask which are the months of the skiing season.


    Looking forward to recieve all the information you could send us, we would like to thank you four your attention.



    Yours faithfully,



    Laura García Arenal

    Why have you used "we" throughout the letter with only one signature? It would be OK if, instead of the first "we", you replace it with "my husband and I" or "my friend and I" or whomever your "we" represents.
