    Guide was great with a lot of local knowledge and good sense of humor. Very detail oriented and good with controlling a large group.

    I recommend this adventure. Schedule is full and busy, but worth the time. I you like to have a lot of time for yourself, this may not be your thing.

    First time that we had ever taken a coach tour. Itinerary was excellent and for the most part we enjoyed our fellow travelers. We were quite impressed that every hotel had comfortable beds and we really appreciated that the hotel staff portered our bags so we never had to lug them around. This made the frequent hotel changes a breeze. There were some rather long rides in the coach when we would have appreciated the tour director providing us with some information about local terrain and culture to help pass the time. Otherwise though, Chris was exceptional. He was extremely well organized and a very good communicator about our travel plans and kept everyone on track.

    Awful trip, not what we expected. Boring same old same old, Straight along the expressways, to the next major town/city, did not venture into the smaller towns or villages to get an appreciation of the English countryside. While the visits to the major towns/city's was interesting enough ,the sheer tedium of driving along the highways listening to how the Romans took over Britain for 11 day's was tiresome to say the least. Everybody got sick with the flu, if you go take medication with you, or better still if you have the flu "don't go, as you will undoubtedly pass it on.

    The trip was not what I expected at all. First of all the group was too large. There were over forty people. The bus we rode on was in poor condition. The heater was stuck on the first day, it was hot and sweaty, when it was turned off by the driver it then became Arctic conditions. The WiFi never worked right.

    Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. This tour was so great a few years ago that I'm doing it again this year back to back with European Traveller. Accommodation was top notch, pace allowed for maximum viewing, bus driver and guide were friendly and informative. Loved it and will always return to Trafalgar.

    This was our second trip with Trafalgar. We enjoyed it as much as the first one. It was relaxing to know we didn't have to worry about transportation, accommodations, or tickets/passes to the sites. The tour director was knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend your tours.

      Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
