comment Is the usage 'was to have done' correct
Thanks for the detailed answer. At a semantic level, I don't see the construct is trying to convey a sense of perfection, so 'to turn them down on the tour, which was to include ...' sounds more natural. Contrast to for example 'The tour, which was to have included the testing labs was canceled midway'.

@Martha: "because it's impossible to keep any answers accurate/relevant over the long run" - if you applied that criterion to Stackoverflow, it would be wiped out in whole because of the rapid pace of technology. Any question/answer has temporal validity attached to it - why do you want to keep things accurate/relevant over the long run - and how long exactly is long run.
