Avignon, the Rhône & Provence
Dr P Hill
“excellent organisation. No problems
Railways & Castles of Wales
Anonymous
“A wonderful time with an excellent Tour Guide, good hotel and interesting trips.
Traditional Glacier Express
Anonymous
“Great organisation, itinerary and hotels. Guide was fantastic and very considerate to all Clients especially as some of them had problems with their mobility and needs
Western Highlands & Hebrides
Mr P Johnson
“Thoroughly enjoyed the round of experiences in this holiday. A bit spoilt by the weather.
A Castle On The Shores Of Loch Fyne
Anonymous
“Very little free time, both to experience the hotel and surroundings and also the local harbour. It is Scotland, but there was a lot of travel to get anywhere. The trip to the distillery was a long way for an hour’s experience, and not really of much interest to the ladies perhaps.
Edinburgh, the Highlands & Islands
Mr W Bean
“A very good holiday overall, but let down badly on the Jacobite train trip with our group allocated a sub-standard carriage which appeared to have been dragged out of the renovation shed and stuck on the end of the train.
Grand Imperial Cities
Anonymous
“Excellent tour manager coped the issues thrown her way. Hotel food not so good. would have paid for extra night in Nurnberg and Berlin if that was available. Would have perferred to go direct to Berlin rather than visit Spreewald.
Simply Lake Garda
Mr P Collett
“Logistics, organisation excellent little disappointed in location of hotel and did not agree with its 4 star categorisation
Sirmione on Lake Garda
Anonymous
“I very much enjoy the holiday but my enjoyment was spoiled by the fact that two people who clearly were unsuited to a holiday which involved changing trains and with a 700 metre walk over cobbles to get between the nearest coach pickup point had apparently been told that they would have no problem with this holiday. It also involved our rep. and another passenger taking their luggage for them.

Discover the most celebrated historical sights that India has to offer on our tour of 'India's Golden Triangle', an awe-inspiring adventure that sees passengers visit the iconic Taj Mahal, take a rickshaw ride through the narrow streets of Delhi's bazaar, and travel through the foothills of the Himalayas on the UNESCO-listed Toy Train. In Europe, experience the fascinating history of Vienna, Budapest, Prague and Berlin on our incredible tour, 'Grand Imperial Cities', or enjoy astounding Alpine scenery on a journey through the Swiss Alps aboard the famous Glacier Express.

If you'd prefer to explore the charming landscapes that lie just beyond your doorstep, why not discover the Highlands of Scotland on our 'Edinburgh, the Highlands & Islands' tour? From the majestic expanse of water at Loch Ness and Loch Linnhe to the enticing combination of traditional and contemporary architecture in the Scottish capital, this extraordinary round-trip showcases the very best Scotland has to offer. Or, to taste a calmer pace of life, experience the 'Vintage Railways of the Isle of Man'.
