Outstanding Value and Hosts
Connector26368972152
, Oct 2019
Isabell and David are the most accommodating hosts and knowledgeable people. Anyone would be thrilled to take one of their adventures in the English countryside or towns. What an unexpected and fun filled experience for two American senior citizens. The pubs were great, the towns and local people so friendly and quaint. Rick Steves is making a big mistake by missing out on this team of professional guides and scholars so well versed in history and why so many of the stops warrant the time to explore them.

Entertaining and informative

Our tour guide, Isabel, and our driver (and her husband), David, made it a most enjoyable experience. From providing a lively and informative description of the sites and their backstories, to taking us to delightful villages not inundated by tourists, to providing 20 pence for entry to WCs along the way 😉, we were well-cared for. I highly recommend this tour!
