Lawrence

Tour director was very good. City tours by bus were weak. There needed to be a handout with ideas for free time with directions and costs. Beatles museum visit should have been part of base tour. Edinburg castle optional tour should have live guide or audio guide as part of package, Options for dinner at three price points should be a handout for each location where dinner is on your own.

George

Very good guide. AA just ok airline. Liked 9am start times. Hotels excellent except good in Edinburgh. Tours excellent except good in Liverpool. Wish single room was not so expensive.
