The tour would have been fine if the weather had cooperated. Walking was very tiring for the group ( most of us were well into our 70's).

The bad bit first. We had an early Eurostar train (7.20 a.m.) and have been used to arriving 2 hours early to get our tickets etc. However on this occasion the Great Rail meeting time was for 6.20 a.m. I had telephoned a few days earlier to query this but was told it would be 'fine'. Despite the office opening at 6 we could not access our tickets until 6.20. The queues were a nightmare at security and by the time I had passed through I had to go straight to the train, which I and other group members just made. The holiday itself was brilliant (other than being the hottest town in France during an unseasonal heatwave!); well and thoughtfully organised. The hotel was excellent as were the included meals. All in all really good value for money.
