“I thought the journey was excellent and good value. I loved all the travel and activities. The hotels were good on the whole and the food provided was better than I had expected I did not take either photos or videos so cannot answer the next question.

“Good holiday although a couple of alterations would be advantageous e.g visit Harlow Carr in the afternoon instead of morning and catch an earlier N Yorks Moors train as the last part of our journey was in the dark and we returned very late to the hotel. It was well organised, both hotels were satisfactory and the food in the Crowne Plaza in Harrogate was excellent especially the choice at breakfast. There were some very nice excursions with enthusiastic local guides

“Well organised and enjoyable trip with an excellent tour leader in Caroline Bryan. Good hotels - Freieck in Chur did the best breakfast I've eaten on the continent. Bernerhof pretty good too. Booking staff helpful especially when we had to change arrangements to get to London due to rail strikes. Very pleased with the luggage transfer service - GRJ should make more of this in publicity. Similarly for the coach transfers between Paris stations. Have never liked travelling through Paris since a long ago attempt attempted theft on the Metro so coach transfer great. Drawbacks, not many, perhaps more meals could have been included. Also we could have got an earlier Eurostar back from Paris: that would have helped us get home at a more sensible time but overall a good scenic holiday. At the reduced price it was reasonable value for money
