    • Just a wonderful 8 days-only wish we had had more time in York.

      • Service
        First of all, our tour quide was sooo great. Michael went waay out of his way to make our tour so wonderful. There were only 8 of us which made it even better. The only complaint I have is the first hotel we were in in Edinburgh. To make it even better we had many sunny, beautiful days while we were there.Came home with many wonderful memories.

        Both the local travel agent and the Collette Tour Guide were very professional and helped to make this a great trip.

        The highlight of this tour for me was the visit to Castle Howard - and this stop was the main reason that I selected the UK By Rail Tour. I wish we had been able to spend more time there. Edinburgh, York and London were also great. I also enjoyed visiting St. Andrews. I could have easily skipped the visits to Pitlochry and Helmsley. We were only in each town barely long enough to have lunch. The tour of the whiskey distillery was not interesting to me.
