    We saw a lot of sights from the bus, would have liked longer time at stops. Pitlochry needed more than 30 minutes. Overall saw alot, would have liked more time to explore. Our driver Dave, a true gentleman, felt very safe, excellent driving. Collette our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and thoughtful. Additional guides were also very informative and entertaining.

    I would eliminate the cider farm tour - the ferry and train rides were very nice. It is a shame that many things since we booked the tour were cancelled and the Guinness tour. I prefer hotels that are in small towns that are walkable than the one hotel out in the country. We loved our London extension and our guide was fantastic. We loved Laura Goodman as our tour guide. She was knowledgeable, personable and funny.

    Excellent, caring, and expert tour guide and coach driver. Rated accommodations "good" because of Ballachulish Hotel. Personnel were surly a couple of times. Room heat nearly impossible to regulate. Food not as good as all other venues. Regarding tours: Coach tour guide in Glasgow was very poor. Ronan in Londonderry was the absolute best. The Guinness Storehouse tour was disappointing. We did not get to see actual brewery operations, which we thought we would. Large and loud groups interfered with each other. The tour guide presented very little substantive information on the process. More "ooh and ahh" factoids than anything else. The special event meals were uniformly excellent. Suggestion: Let people know up front that if they purchase all of the options, they will be on the go almost continuously. If they want to do serious shopping or seeing things and meeting people at a more leisurely pace, they will need to pass on an option now and then. It was truly a wonderful trip.

Dublin and Derry hotels were located 30 minutes from city center. We could not stroll around the city in our down time. One hotel was at most, 2 stars. The views from our rooms at different hotels included a fire escape, rooftop kitchen vents, a brick wall, railroad tracks with all night trains and a parking lot. The Irish music and dancing at the Folk Park was my favorite event.

    Pricing for the tour was very fair. A couple of the hotels, especially Barberstown Castle, were too far from the city or town we were touring. Again, the optional evenings were very expensive. However, we did take advantage of the Dublin lunch and Guinness tour and felt the pricing on that provided good value. Our favorite city was Edinburgh and we purposely arrived there three days before the tour began. We also really liked seeing St. Andrews and the Scottish Highlands, Inverness, Lochness, and were impressed by Belfast, Derry-Londonderry and Dublin. We also scheduled three days in Dublin post-tour and found that a good decision, as well. Tour guides hired for some stops were very good, except for the one in Glasgow. She initially failed to keep track of our group and raced through tour. The others were very entertaining, armed with enlightening stories and history.

    First and foremost, our tour guide was excellent. Marc knew the history of the area quite well and was able to answer almost all of the questions asked by the group. Our time In Edinburgh was interesting especially the "vaults" in the old town. The lake boat ride on Loch Ness was very nice, and no, we did not find the monster. Of particular interest to me was the "local guide" in Belfast. Our Irish, Chinese, Buddhist guide was so interesting when he was telling us about "The Troubles" period in Northern Irish History. Walking the wall there was quite an experience. Londonderry was just as interesting. When you go, look for the statue of the two children trying to touch hands, indicating that the children will solve the problems between the Catholics and Protestants. As usual the accommodations were quite excellent, especially Colloden Inn and Spa. I hope they keep this in the future. This experience is interesting for the history education you will get. The food, as usual, is excellent. The haggis is an acquired taste and one not for me. It can be had at most breakfasts and dinners. I usually went for the fish and lamb which are the specialties in all three countries. Breakfast is usually the typical European offerings -- baked beans, ham, sausage, cheese, roasted tomatoes, hot and cold cereals, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, juices, excellent breads, etc. You'll always be able to get a good start on the day.

    Generally very good. Some tours I thought were lacking. I St Andrew they just dropped us by the golf course which very few seemed interested in. Nobody knew but the castle ruins were just down the street. It might have been nice to drop those interested down there. The local guide in Derry showed us very little but talked a lot about the protestant-catholic tensions in Ireland.

    The only thing that I would say that keeps this trip from being excellent is the limited amount of time we have at our many destinations. In stating this, I also realize that in order to cover the places we saw that this unfortunately, with the time we have to tour, is necessary. Loch Ness boat trip and Edinburgh were my most favourite parts. Northern Ireland was so steeped in history, Titanic was amazing.... it probably would have been easier to ask what was my least favourite ...which was Glasgow but probably only because we were there for such a short time and the City tour was impeded by something going on which closed main streets while we were there.

    Saw so many amazing things on this fast-paced tour, but my favorite place was Edinburgh--so rich with history!

    My most memorable experience was walking up the 18th fairway at St Andrews Golf Course and taking my picture on the Swilcan Bridge. I am an avid golfer and ot was a dream come true.

    Our only complaint was our arrival in Edinburgh. Our flight was 15 minutes early and we cleared customs in 45 minutes. When we got to the arrival area and had no idea what to do. The driver said they planned to pick up an hour after scheduled arrival time.

    1. Royal Yacht was an excellent stop. 2. Edinburgh Castle should be included. We went on our own. 3. Giant's Causeway and the tour of Derry and Belfast. 4. Hotels were excellent except for The City Hotel in Derry. Service in restaurant was unacceptable. Waiter lost our tables order and we had a very long wait to be fed. At breakfast, it took forever to get coffee and tea. 5. Ulster American Folk Park was great but we felt we needed more time to see the entire park. 6. The Farewell Dinner and show was definitely not a highlight. The venue was overpacked(at least 6 tour buses). It was difficult to see the show because the waiters decided to collect for the bar orders at that time. They were all standing in our way.
