    Went on the British Isles In Depth tour and it was OK, the hotels were OK, a couple were way out of town, so we didn't get to see those towns, got in too lat to see a couple of others, the driver was lovely and the coach was good, but the tour guide was nasty at times, I kept getting told not to come along for any guided walks and not to go to the top of Edinburgh Castle, then to top it off, 4 days before the tour ended she came to my hotel room and told me I smelled horrible and started saying I didn't shower or wash my clothes, not true of course, so my trip was ruined, and it was my first ever overseas trip at 65 years of age, will never use Cosmos again, I guess they're cheap for a reason.

    What an amazing experience! Annemarie our guide looked after all our needs and was full of interesting history about the places we visited. Accommodation was great and driver Rob was skilled in maneuvering our large, comfortable coach along any route to places of incredible beauty. Thank you Cosmos.
