    When I booked this tour I was hoping for a memorable experience....I DEFINATELY got that!!!! I cannot fault Neil our bus driver/guide he was brilliant........ Of the 6 nights I was on the tour 2 nights there was NO accommodation for me....the first night to be told the Head Office had rung through that day to where I was meant to be staying to cancel my booking. Eventually Neil organised something for me. 2nd and 3rd nights I stayed in a beautiful B&B but was meant to have my own bathroom, not so... I had to share with others from another tour company who didn't give a dam how they left the bathroom. 4th night once again no accommodation booked for me so Neil gave me another persons room. Day 5 we swapped to another bus driver Alan who was new to the tour and was expecting a tour guide who unfortunately couldn't come as his wife was taken sick. This meant we had no tour guide for the next 3 days....What was the name of that Castle? That river? etc, We paid for a guided tour which we didn't get for the last 3 days. Some of the restaurants/cafes in the towns we stopped for lunch turned us away as they couldn't cater for all the tour buses in town so we didn't get lunch. These people should be used to having tourists and cater for them. Overall I was VERY disappointed in the organisation of this tour. Neil was absolutely brilliant and i felt very sorry for him as each night someone's accommodation was messed up and he had to sort it out. On our bus there were people from a 5 day and 7 day tour...another bus followed us with the same people doing both tours- Why not put all the same tour on the one bus? Crazy as the other driver was dropping people off at the same place as Neil of a night - Would have been nice to have been staying with fellow passengers especially when travelling alone. I was VERY disappointed in the tour especially for the money we paid. I definitely wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.
