    It was the kind of tour we wanted. Everything was in order, all the information, instructions, vouchers were clear and we did not have any issue.

    The features offered were exactly what was delivered. I had a beautiful train ride without any problems. The hotel room was very dated and there was no air conditioning. However since it was only one night, I was fine. The staff was very nice.

    We had limited time to spend in Scotland so this tour was perfect. Loved Edinburg, don’t miss Holyrood House. Lovely scenery on the train ride. The accommodations were comfortable and perfectly located in walking distance to all attractions
