Help deciding on how to tour England/Ireland/Scotland

Jump to last reply

You Fodorites have given me great advice over the years, so I will try again! The number one place in the world my wife wants to visit is London. I am trying to plan a 10-12 day trip for next July (sans the kids) and surprise her with the news as a Christmas present this year.

I have to admit, I have been to London twice before (but it has been almost 20 years), and it's not really near the top of my list of places I want to visit again, but this is really for my wife. I think I will be much more excited if I can somehow add Ireland and/or Scotland (I know adding only one is probably more realistic on a 10-12 day trip).

At this point, I'm just trying to decide the best way to try to put together a multi-destination trip. Because of her work schedule, and because this trip is really for her, I will plan the details after I tell her about the trip (such as exact dates, sights, areas of London to stay in). I'm sure a travel agent or tour company would be great, but more expensive. I would like to keep the cost as low as possible (doesn't everyone?), so would it be better to try to organize everything myself (find the flights, hotels, train to Edinburgh, etc...)? I've done quite a bit of traveling and been to Europe before, but this seems a little daunting because of all of the different options that are available.

Thank you guys so much for any tips/advice you can offer!
