“Britain & Ireland Panorama”
- New Zealand Jun 2018

On the whole it was a great trip. I think more own time was needed to relax and unwind. Only one opportunity to do laundry. Days were long, would have been nicer to arrive at hotel in afternoon. Arrival times were between 4.30- 7.00pm. A good mix of people, all got along easily.

Our trip was great with around 70% Aussies and great range of ages between approx. 45-70 so great group to mix with. Our guide Andrew was extremely knowledgeable with history of the countries which was fascinating. ...read more
