    1.0 - Bad

    My sister was buried yesterday. We had planned to go to Scotland as a dream realized. Unfortunately, that will never be and now that I am trying to cancel the trip so close to our travel date Trafalgar has decided to not only will they rebate a very small amount of the trip to me, they will also charge my sister who is no longer alive. Be very careful to read the fine print and please make sure you are healthy before you make your plans.

    3.5 - Good

    To start with, the group was very numerous (about 48 people). Fortunately all but the 2 of us were (US and Canadian) courteous and punctual people very well disposed towards others. My main complaint is the organization of it, as it gave the impression we "saw" places which only some of us were able to fleetingly perceive as a flash when driving by on the coach. Too many hours on the coach, practically no stops other than the sleeping place and one spot in each of the two main cities. Hardly any time for lunch or shopping. No photo opportunities other than bad photos taken while driving at normal speed. The guide wasn't bad, but he should have foreseen at least some photo stops at lovely panoramic spots, having had beautiful weather all along. I had the feeling we often set out early so he could have a longer time ahead of him at the end of the afternoon. Hotels were good in Edinburgh and Glasgow, but in the latter there was a "function" going on in the floor beneath ours which meant loud music till 1pm for two nights!.We were given ear plugs, a basket of fruit and an apology, but we still couldn't sleep properly. Also in Glasgow, they kept supplying only 1 set of towels though it was a twin room for 2 occupants. The hotel in Laggan wasn't fantastic and it was far from absolutely everything. The food there was OK, the desserts were very good.

    Very well organized and interesting tour, highly recommended. Hotel in Laggan has somewhat old equipment, shower hardly provided warm water. The rest was perfect.

    Took this trip with my 14 year old grandson. He loved the castles we toured and Britannia. We both enjoyed the Scotish entertainment evening. Loved the food. The scenery was unforgettable and we visited a sheep farm to watch the sheep dogs train which was delightful.

    six night too short, not enough time to see places. Need to be at least nine and not so far to go each day

    Beautiful coach, friendly driver and knowledgeable guide. Fantastic tour covering the best parts in a week. Cool though. Should have had a warmer coat for the Highlands. Highly recommend it and I'd love to go again.
