The trip was good overall. I would recommend this tour to a first time visitor who wishes to know more about Britain and Ireland. I enjoyed the trip also because it was well organised. Our tour guide communicated very well and our driver was excellent. The meals which were included were reasonable - you get what you pay for.

Booking with Global Journeys was excellent. It went smoothly and I was informed about the progress. Madeline, Thank you.

Good tour overall , however most sightseeing involved additional entry fee payments and optional excursions were expensive. Added additional $1000 to the tour costs. Didn't plan tour time properly to enable entry time to go into Windsor castle on the last day which was frustrating. Being in front of it but no time to go inside it!

I think there is so much to see in Edinburgh that the accomodation should be there not Glasgow, spend a half day in Glasgow and two in Edinburgh, 4 hrs is not enough time to see anything. A night in Belfast would be good, not just a drive thru the City. Dublin to see a lot you need at a full day, there should be enough time in Windsor to some exploring. It really is just a sightseeing tour. On the whole we loved the trip, to get a taste to go back and tour by car.
