“Better than expected!”
- New Zealand Jun 2018 9 Helpful Votes

The first section of the tour is very busy but eases up once in Ireland. We had expected quite a bit of motorway driving so it was a pleasant surprise to find that the Tour Director & Driver did as much on 'country roads' as practical, and even in parts when passing other vehicles was 'tight'. Scenery was great. The weather was well behaved. Tour Director and Driver were excellent and worked well as a team. Some people didn't do any of the optionals and I think they missed out on some good opportunities...read more

“Fantastic 22 day UK Tour”
- QLD, Australia Sep 2016 4 Helpful Votes

This tour had been recommended by a friend and so glad we took the advice. The inclusion of the Orkney Islands is a big plus. After doing 3 previous bus tours with 6.30 - 7am starts this one was a breeze with later starts. Our tour guide - Parri was brilliant as was the driver Simon. They made this an even more memorable trip. Some hotels in the smaller towns were a bit average but all adds to the adventure. Would definitely recommend this tour.
