    Great selection of attractions. Nicely paced timing — generally plenty of time to view them. Mike the Scotsman was clever, witty and entertaining, at the same time making it clear that our needs and our overall safety were his top priority. His historic expertise was amazing and he told stories that really made the sites more memorable. He had great banter with the members of the tour and made it clear that he loves his job. Martin was an excellent driver and I’ve never seen a cleaner bus — especially the wheels and hubcaps!

    The tour was great! Lots of interesting stuff in such a short period of time. It was very good that both organized activities and free time were included. I would definitely recommend it! The guide Mike was very helpful and the driver Martin drove very careful.

    It was very rushed. If we chose one of the optional excursions we had no time to see anything in the area and often we had no time to have lunch if we also wanted to go to a local attraction. By the way, the excursions were excellent - the cream of the attractions for the area. For instance, why would anyone visit Bath and not visit the Roman Baths? I found the tour very tiring with the early morning starts, rushed breakfasts (we had only 30 minutes to eat out breakfast), and rushed itinerary. There was a lack of specialised knowledge about the areas - specialised guides with the attractions would have made the tour special. However, as the attractions were only seen as part of optional extras, it seemed the tour was only for the accommodation and the transport. Sometimes the tour director gave us information that was not quite right - which often came to light when we visited attractions and were told something else. The meals and entertainment (optional extras) were great - especially the "Spirit of Scotland", a dinner and theatre show- it was a highlight of our visit to Scotland, very entertaining and something we will always remember. For the most part, the accommodation was comfortable and average for a tour. The driver of the bus was funny and a very careful, competent driver. However, the bus lacked wifi and we were not told that there were USB points to charge our mobile phones (needed if we were using mobiles to take pictures of our trip) until we were on the trip for a few days - the reason given was because only some of the USB points actually worked. One of the seatbelts in the bus did not work as it would not close. So there were some things about the bus that should have been updated for a trip in 2018. Another thing that would have improved the tour experience was the use of radio/ear pieces so that we all could hear the information during a walk around with the tour guide. He often kept speaking during noise (traffic etc) or turned his back to the group while talking - therefore some of what he was saying was missed. Overall, it was an inexpensive trip that gave us an opportunity to be in places that we will always remember.

    When we booked the tour we though that the additional tours were something in addition to do, I meant that they weren’t the central entertainment in the City. But if you didn’t pay for those tours the other option was to walk around the city making time. You should put and be clear that the paying activities are the central tourism in every city.

    The tour was hectic but great. My biggest disappointment was not being able to obtain a souvenir from Wales, because we arrived to late and all the shops were closed.
