4 stars
“A most interesting trip, with some spectacular sights, although rather a lot of time (two days out of six) was spent sitting on trains or coaches. The tour manager was very pleasant and helpful, although not himself familiar with the area. Hotel was pleasantly located by the river, if a little distant from the main attractions of the holiday - which perhaps helped to keep the price down. Early start from St Pancras demanded overnight stay and added to the cost - though it was an enjoyable evening in London!
