What our clients are saying about their journeys through the British Isles

“Wonderful Ireland”
Diane & Frank - QLD , Australia Apr 2019
Our trip to Southern Ireland was a most memorable one. Our guide Eva was a lovely young woman with a comprehensive knowledge of the history, fables and places of interest of this beautiful country. As there were only 6 passengers, the atmosphere on the coach was very relaxed and friendly.

“Collette's British Landscapes were revelatory”
Megan - QLD, Australia Apr 2019

A fantastic trip with an amazing tour director (Christine) who had so much knowledge about the UK, we were continually amazed (and entertained). Highly recommended tour.

“Best of Ireland and Scotland”
John - WA, Australia Apr 2019

Of the 36 on the coach 5 were Australians, 2 Singaporean, while all the rest were from the US or Canada. As a consequence the Australians tended to find the more
