Which tour company would be best?

Jump to last reply

I am thinking of going on a tour across Britain and Ireland next year.

I've done lots of research, but I'm not sure which tour company to use....since I have read negative and positive reviews for each tour company. Taucks is too expensive for 3 people...

1. CIE (British and Ireland Grandeur)
http://www.cietours.com/world/escorted_tour/2013/british_and_irish_grandeur_15d/default.aspx -- only issue is that it does not visit oxford or strathford or cliffs of moher (if I book additional day tours via Premium Tours...there is no pickup from Doubletree West End....and no option to book for post-tour accommodation via CIE).
2. Globus (13 day Shannon to the Thames) http://www.globaljourneys.com.au/coach_tours/uk/uk/globus/gu.php - issue is having to book additional day tours (which I may do through Premium Tours.....for oxfrod)
3. Insight vacations (22 day Britain & Ireland Discover) http://www.globaljourneys.com.au/coach_tours/uk/uk/insight/b959.php (only issue is not getting a tour of London itelf)

I am comfortable sitting for hours on a coach, as long as the guide is awesome....as in thorough description of places we visit/history/ etc.

I do not want to do this independently, so escorted is the way for me.
