      The itinerary is a bit too rush. Start early in the morning and back to hotel quite late. The seat in the coach is with limited leg room to sit or rest comfortably. Some of the hotels are without lift so we have to carry our suitcases up the stairs.... Show more

      Great time. Able to see highlights from all directions of England, from north to south and east to west, including a bit of Scotland. Only complaint involved lodging choices. Several of the hotels did not have a lift or one very small lift which... Show more

      So jammed packed with places and historic content, loved that. But at times too rushed and didn't arrive in time for a couple. The only real problem I had was at Hotel Novotel the night before. I'm sharing with you and Hotels.com. I had signed up to... Show more

      Exactly what we were hoping for. It is just a “Taste” of everything, but a great introductory trip that will give a broad overview of England. So many highlights but the dinner excursion into Scotland and the tour of Oxford and Punting in Cambridge... Show more

      The tour was very rushed - leaving at 7 most days - only given 1/2 breakfast - have to carry your suitcases up stairs as not many hotels have lifts - sometimes eating dinner at 9 or arriving hotel at 10pm - meals were cold as I don’t think the hotels... Show more

      The itinerary was very tight and unfortunately we were rushed in a lot of the location we went to. The accommodation were wonderful on the first 2 nights but not after that. I actually got bed bug bits on my foot from one of the hotels we stayed at.... Show more

      I wish the tour would have included London - at least a drive by tour. It was misleading when the itinerary says, "tour starts and ends in London". The hotels were sub par - most of them did not have elevators. The tour as a whole was so rushed. Some... Show more
