The trip was disappointing….MANY hours on the bus, VERY little time in Cardiff, Liverpool, Glasgow and York, and if you didn’t take one of the optional excursions, your alternative was to sit on the bus for an hour!…This should have been mentioned to the optional should included…I also found the tour guide, who certainly did his best, was hard to understand due to his heavy English accent…Thankfully the Military Tatoo was outstanding as were the Scottish Highlands. Some of the hotels were also mediocre at best….I wouldn’t recommend this tour.

That reflects the fact that some of the hotels were poor. Someone should have done a better job to make sure the properties were comfortable.

The trip itinerary was poorly designed. They tried to do too much and often we had only a few hours in a city like Glasgow or Liverpool. I’d rather stay 2 days in each key city. Meals provided were not great.
