    Would have loved to stay longer in Chester, York, and Temby. Either there was time to eat and not shop or site see, or shop and site see and not eat. Would have loved to have recommendations of quick bites. Other than that it was a great trip.

    I understood the tour would be fast paced to get through everything included. One hotel in Scotland was old but quaint with its odiocincrities and rabbit Warren corridors but a very beautiful building

    An excellent tour with exceptional guide who was a full history book on the way. This was a great experience that included all of the UK and Ireland. Hotel accommodation was great in central parts of cities.

    • Marcia9th August 2018
      I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
