I loved this trip. Our guide Chris was great. I met fellow travelers form Austrial and New Zealand. Every one was friendly. The hotels amd meals provided were excellent. It is a great tour if you are traveling alone also.
We enjoyed all the villages and cities on this tour. At first we were disappointed not to see Windsor Castle, but we thoroughly enjoyed Longleat as a substitute. Our experience in Bath was most enjoyable and we loved the Francis Hotel. The guide was knowledgable and friendly, and was a good driver. I would recommend limiting the number on the tour so that no more than two people are on the back bench seat, as it is too crowded with four.
This tour was very well-organized - packing a lot of history and scenery into each day, with evenings to relax. Our guide was very knowledgeable, the bus was comfortable and it was great to share the experience with other people from around the world. The hotels were nice, the food was good. There were only 13 of us on the tour, which, given the size of the bus, seems to be fairly typical. That size of group gave us some flexibility in how long we stayed at various sites. All in all, a good experience.
Enjoyed this tour immensely - small group of 6 including driver/tour guide. Went to places out of the way/ small villages. Hotels a delight.
Wife and I had a good time. Rooms were good (and small except coach house room at Kings in Cotswolds. That was the best of all our accommodations in England.Tour guide/driver was too talkative. Too much information given. What he thought wasn't interesting ("just tourist stuff") we found "new" and worthwhile seeing. Stops on the moors offered great experience. I thought we spent a lot of time traveling in the van between stops.
Our guide was so knowledgeable about the areas we visited. He was thoughtful and kind. There were a couple of poorly arranged schedules..one day of too much driving; lunch and tea within an hour of each other. But otherwise, a very good experience!
