When we first booked we thought it was Skybus both ways. But had to take the early ferry across one way. Overcrowded train to Penzance which was late into Paddington and so could not sit in any of our reserved seatt. No hot drinks available for the entire journey.

We had a good vacation, but as often happens with GRJ tours, the local 'guides' are inclined to talk far, far too much.
