  • JOHN ROY's review about another AAT Kings tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    An excellent choice of events and accommodation for the 11 day tour. The cruises were outstanding. Delma gave us a lot of very useful background information. Ben was an efficient and considerate driver.

    • Andrew3rd January 2019
      It's not the first time I've used this site for 3 very good reasons. It's easier to navigate than most of the individual companies websites, it's a one stop shop (all the tours from the different companies are in one place) and to top it off its often cheaper than going direct
