Jul 2018

Great tour. Only one problem. It ends in Edinburgh. So if you need to get back to London, you have to find your own way back. I came back on a Easy jet flight.

It's not clear that you will be left in Edinburgh, Scotland. Under Return details, it says Return to departure Point. It needs to be corrected.
