Norwich & Norfolk at Christmas
12/Jan
M Baynes
5 stars
“Norwich is a lovely City to spend Christmas,hotel was pleasant although not in the most salubrious area unless your a football fan.All the staff were very helpful and friendly, food was very good with plenty of choice,even for a vegetarian !! Ken our holiday guide was excellent doing his best to please quite a large party. I wouldn't consider another rail discoveries holiday at that time of year due to the over crowding ( not your fault) of the trains. Mary Baynes

“A wonderfully organised and led trip. The train rides in the Forest of Dean and on the Warwickshire and Gloucestershire Railway were brilliant and the tour of Worcester was so informative with a lovely guide. The hotel staff were all brilliant at the White House. The only slight downer was the cuisine. The vegetables were tasteless. Maybe this was down to the Brexit driven shortages both of staff and fresh produce.

“We had a lovely time but I wish we could have got off the train to see the viaduct. The new hotel was good (especially the pool) but we would have liked to have been staying in Carlisle to see more of the city.

“The accommodation was fair to good. The food, dining and restaurant service was very good. It was a shame that the TV in the was not working and that it took 4 days to get the areiel fixed by an outside contractor. When staff were informed more than once they did nothing except to suggest it was a fault with the mast and outside their control which it was not!

The Unspoilt Isles of Scilly
23 Oct 2021
Lizzie Eyre
4 stars
“The tour manager was very friendly and competent, the hotel on St Mary's was very comfortable and as the organised trips to other islands enjoyable. However the overnight train was cramped, obviously not the fault of the travel company; I would have preferred to travel by day, staying in Penzance before taking the ferry the following morning and reversing this on the return journey
