    The itinerary was good, covered all the places that I had expected to see. The tour leader and the driver were both good and they made the tour even more funful and enjoyable.

    As expected, the 13-day itinerary was packed and quite intense but provided good value for the money. The guide’s professionism & good humour exceeded our expectations. Some hotel stays may not be as good as expected but so little time was spent in the room, it would not matter anyway. We enjoyed the whole experience.

    No better way to see as much as possible. Great guide, driver and great group of people. Got some unexpected bonus stops and events along the way. Stacey had great entertainment on the bus and driver Dan was the man who could put big things in small places! I wouldn't want to drive those narrow streets! A few places could have had more time and a few, less, but overall, wow, what an adventure!!! It was my first bus tour but hopefully not my last!! Thanks Stacey, Dan & Expat for helping me check off a bunch from my bucket list in style!

    The 13 day UK tour was fast and ferocious, but we checked off all the places that were on our bucket list and then some. Stacey was a great tour guide and driver Dan was wonderful. This tour was a great bang for the buck. Thank you Expat Explore!

      Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
