    2.5 - Average

    Was bitterly disappointed after paying extra money because I believed the brochure that it would be leisurely was so wrong, yes didn't leave on average till 9.00am but didn't get to hotel till,6.30 had to met in bar at 7pm in dining room 7.30 got meal about 8.15pm if lucky finished 9.30. going to bed on a full stomach. We were driving quite a few times for 2 1/2 hours which is not good for the bladder. I mentioned to the tour guide why the long days reply it's only for the first couple days well that lasted for 10days. Whenever how long a journey would be oooh not long just down the road, well 1-2hrs later we arrived at our destination. Never again will I do a back roads tour or recomend it, tour guide needs to learn his measurements a hundred metres is not three or four, asked how long a walking tour would be he said less than an hour well it was over an hour and a half.. I'll stop now but could go on

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • September 1, 2016

    How is the accommodation booked?

    The accommodation for this tour is already included in the price of the tour and pre-booked for you.

  • September 1, 2016

    Can you provide any information on the accommodation?

    Generally, the tour operator uses a 3-star / 4-star standard of accommodation ranging from country inns to town centre hotels and the occasional castle! Rather than going by the official grading (based solely on facilities rather than the standard), they base thier choices on quality. In all properties the rooms have en-suite bathrooms.

    Many of the traditional properties used are in historic buildings which have been converted to hotels from the original function, rather than purpose built hotels.
