Have now had two excellent and affordable (one downright cheap) trips to Europe. Good basic hotels in safe and central locations, timely and reliable customer service. Would definitely recommend and use again. Was particularly pleased that on the trip alone, the single supplement wasn’t an exorbitant upgrade.

If you cancel the tickets, it would be messy. You won't get a refund on time. You just have to chase the customer service for weeks and weeks.

It was wonderful. We had such a good time. Scotland is beautiful and the weather was a pleasure, very little rain. Our guide, Lorna, was wonderful. She was a wealth of information and made this trip so much more interesting. How she remembers all the names and dates is truly a gift. I can't say enough about her, all good things. We really enjoyed ourselves. We had a great group of people on our trip, so much fun.
