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

“Britain and Ireland Delight”
Robert - OH, United States Oct 2019
We were looking to see as much as we could in a short time. This tour was great for seeing the highlights of these three countries. Would use Costsaver again.

“Emerald Ireland”
Jim & Ros - QLD, Australia Sep 2019
It was a good trip, a few places noted on the itinerary we didn’t go to. Guide Dave was good but I think we were spoilt with Ranan on our Grecian Odyssey with APT. The APT App needs to be modernised.

“Great Britain Highlights”
Phil & Joanne - QLD, Australia Sep 2019
Overall the accommodation was very good, breakfasts were very good. Steen the tour director was excellent; very informative and accommodating. Couldn't have asked for a better tour director. The coach driver Karl was quiet and unassuming but a very good driver and very efficient at dispatching luggage etc. Local tour guides were very knowledgable and informative. We saw a lot in a short period of time; didn't really see much of Glasgow or Cardiff. Saw highlights by bus and that was about it. But more

“Tour of Island”
Michelle - WA, Australia Sep 2019
Phenomenal time, tour director was a hoot and full of such interesting knowledge of the whole country!! I travelled alone so was apprehensive however the group I was with was from every age group and we all mixed together well. I'm already planning my next trip!!
