    1.5 - Rather poor

    Bus was fine. Driver was great. “Customer Care” was deplorable. Poor communication about seat rotation. Much seat jumping caused our family of 7 to be separated and me to have to skip breakfast daily to scrap for seats together on the bus. Kevin did not lift a finger to assist. Nor did corporate do a decent job or communicating he specifics do the seat rotation scheme to customers BEFORE arriving for the tour. There were more people aboard on Day 2, which only made the situation worse. Kevin was in a position to perhaps go off of his script to help with our family of travelers. He didn’t even attempt to assist. Our experience is that of unecessary unpleasantness and I am completely disappointed with Globus as a result.

    great support driver and guide, excellent stops, especially edinbriugh... BUT... too much time on the bus. This needs to be better balanced.. either shorter distance or more timer

Questions & Answers

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

    • My husband travels with a disability scooter that folds for transport. How accessible would this tour be for him?

      We do allow electric scooters/carts on our tours. We require information on the dimensions, weight, etc., of the scooter. Please advise the passenger that the motorcoaches do not have ramps. Passengers using scooters may be charged a fee per traveling day, and they or their companion are responsible for the scooter at all times.

    • What are the individual sites guests will be shown in London?

      There are no activities organised while you're in London, just the optional tour, A Taste of London. Here is Globus' information on this optional activity:

      A TASTE OF LONDON
      A unique chance to combine a traditional London pub experience with a relaxed, night-time river cruise, viewing some of the capital's most beautiful illuminated sights. Enjoy a three-course dinner with several local menu choices, including fish and chips and steak and ale pie at an historic London pub in the City of London. Following dinner you will enjoy scenic views from the comfort of your private cruiser. Highlights include Tower Bridge, St. Paul's and the Houses of Parliament, with commentary from your guide as you cruise along the River Thames.

      While the trip does have a few longer travel days, the trip leader makes sure no more than 2.5 hours is spent on the bus at once and offers frequent stops in between destinations.

      Super easy website to use. The filters are awesome & allowed me to find exactly what I was after. Specific features like filtering by exact date (+/- 3 days), desired price per day and type of experience. Will use Tour Radar again for booking a tour.
