    Many. Cumberland London hotel was poorly managed and below average. Very few photo stops and little very casual about photo sites only allowing only a second prep time. Not prepared for viral infection that decimated tour. Not enough time for personal shopping. Overall a big drop in quality compared with same tour 14 years ago. Doubt we will select or recommend Trafalgar.

    Some local guides were amazing like Ronin and the Belfast taxi drivers but Dee in Belfastwas very ordinary, I got very weary of all the tips that was expected of us especially for bus driver and tour director. Overall tour was amazing Ireland and Scotland so beautiful

    My UK Grandeur trip was magnificent as I knew very little of the places we visited as I had not visited . Our Tour Leader made it extra special for me because of the quality of the background knowledge he gave us on each place we visited- this included historical knowledge including knowledge of people and events, his knowledge of literature and architecture pertaining to where we were visiting, and his humorous stories. He chose extra, very personable and knowledgeable people to show us around certain towns and cities for example: Belfast where we listened to men both Protestant and Catholic involved in the ongoing religious war, and Liverpool where we saw the Cathedral and the areas important to the early days of the Beatle's lives and fame, we dined at Cardiff and Eire while listening to stories and their characteristic humour accompanied by traditional music. And he offered a few 'extra special highlights' to show us which I relished-for example, the hidden grove with an altar for saying Mass when doing so was banned for Catholics, the meal with the owners of the Manor in York. Highlights I'll enjoy forever It was a superb trip, well managed, with great accommodation and stops If I had one request it would be add a few extra days on so the latter half could be slowed down and more time spent - perhaps seeing a Shakespeare performance on the Stratford on Avon riverside, visiting Oxford with time to visit (as I did in Dublin) and a drive past either Balmoral or Windsor as they seem so close by. May I add another - a visit to a local in both Penzance (with a pirate's cove) and in Cornwall to hear an old man who speaks like we heard in the radio programme "The Archers. I'd enrol for this trip purely to see what we did which was marvellous and to see these extras The monthly timing of this trip was weather perfect - yes it was coldish up north in Skye but that surely was to be expected.

    I have just completed a Trafalgar trip through England, Ireland and Scotland called the Grandeur Tour. I must say what we saw and did was up to expectations HOWEVER, after doing a Europe tour with Cost Savers who is their cheaper version, I would say to fellow travellers don't waste the extra money , as the tour guide andespecially the hotels were a lot worse, I paid for comfortable beds and at the Novetal in York, had to sleep on a stretcher bed, I will not be travelling with Trafalgar again
