    Our tour guide, Peter Staff and bus driver, Mark were the best. Peter had a wealth of knowledge of all the countries we were in. Mark handled our bus like he was driving a car. The bus was always clean and he helped everyone on and off the bus. All the tours were exceptional as were the tour guides. Some of the hotels weren't quite the best. The Grosvenor Hotel in London was the worst. Only one lift was working and 2 1/2 weeks later when we returned it still wasn't working. Rooms were exceptionally small. Waited over 45 minutes for our suitcases. Eventually had to go down and find them ourselves and bring them up. None of the hotels had any instructions on how to turn the TVs on or work the AC if they had it.

    I would highly recommend GET and more specifically, the Britain and Ireland Explorer trip, to anyone wanting to learn about the history of the UK while meeting new people and enjoying a fun vacation. Our tour guide, David Perry, was simply outstanding! Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about all regions explored, but makes the time on the coach pleasurable. He also provided many benefits and personal details, including tastings of local foods and drinks, at his own expense. We were never in want for anything. David was also very well organized and managed the groups expectations with precision. I can not state enough how beneficial he was as a tour guide and captain. It's safe to say I would take another GET trip just to have him as the host. Also of major importance and due accolades is the coach driver, Jason Croton. He was always at the ready to assist the passengers off the coach with a friendly smile. These two gentlemen make a great team! Regarding the route and stops planning, I believe this is a well thought out trip. It truly is the best of the UK! Other than a few rainy days, there were no bad spots on the trip. Even these days had their good points.

    Several of the hotels did not meet the expected standard for a premium tour. There were very small rooms and rooms not very clean. The worst was at the end of the tour our luggage was dumped off the bus on the sidewalk in front of a hotel that only has stairs to the lobby. we were required to drag our own luggage up the steps into the lobby and then check ourselves in. That whole process was a big mess, I consider myself as Insight's responsibility until the end of the next day, which is designated as travel home day and felt like we were abandoned and left to our own devices when it was still your responsibility to get everyone in their room and the luggage delivered just like it was every day during the tour.
