    Well, we had a great time, met lots of nice travelling companions, went the lenght and breadth of the British isles. Even though we didnt spend as much time as we would of have liked in some of the towns we on a whole found it great. Our tour director, John Barleyman, was an excellent host and a very knowledgeable one at that, filled us up with all sorts of info, was like a history tour of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Still shaking my head with all the facts, figures and who was who in the zoo 500 years ago. Our bus driver Kevin was dam amazing, getting around all those narrow streets, sharp corners, narrow bridges without even blinking an eye, mind a couple of times I reckon he would of had them shut. Could turn a 40ft bus on a sixpence. All in all, had a great time, went to great places and would have been more had we driven ourselves around and most of all had great travelling companions.

    This was a budget tour and it gave far more than I could have imagined. The itinerary was extensive covering most of the highlights - not Stonehenge though. The accommodation and meals were good. Some optional activities such as castles, walks etc could be included in the tour as a whole instead of being given as optional. Stephen Morris, our guide has an astounding knowledge of the places we visited. His little extras were interesting and gave breaks on the days of travel. Richard, out coach driver was competent, considerate and supportive. Stephen and Richard worked as a well-oiled team. I would recommend this trip. It was as comprehensive and inclusive as a high-tier tour I did in Europe

    We LOVED our Costsaver Trafalgar tour of U.K. and Ireland. It was an amazing educational fun vacation. Our tour director was fabulous, he was very knowledgeable and entertaining and ready to help assist us with what ever we needed. Our driver was very personable and we always felt safe and cared for. I really wanted to see Ireland and enjoyed it immensely but was surprised that I loved Scotland even more. The tour opened my eyes to the history and beauty of this country. Our accommodations were great because it was a wide variety of hotels and restaurants. We also took advantage of the extra excursions and visited some special treasures. Many friends warned us not to take a tour to do it on our own but we loved the tour, the bus, the people, the driver and the schedule. I was traveling with my daughter and dear friend and her daughter and mother, we were three generations from age 84 to 20 and the tour pleased all of us! We planning our next Trafalgar trip as soon as possible.

Hotel locations on this tour are not based in the primary town centre and therefore you must make the most of your free time when you are in town. The coach is very comfortable and it needs to be, you spend quite a bit of time driving. Be prepared for early starts and some long days..... well worth it though! I loved that my luggage was taken care of every day, taken to the bus and dropped off at my room. The itinerary is great and I had a very knowledgeable tour directed who helped us all understand the history of each location and as well as the best use of free time. It was a very enjoyable tour overall.
