A bit disappointing really
Isle of Mull and west coast of Scotland cruise
From
£1,926
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole of our vacation was wonderful. The crew were all great, friendly and so helpful. The food was delicious every meal, and plentiful too! The cruise was the best way to see some of Scotland’s beautiful scenery and wildlife. The only fault, we wished it didn't have to end! Tips? Don't forget your binoculars. Sensible shoes and a waterproof for when up on deck and the weather damp. Local benefits? I am not sure about these things as we didn't buy any... (more)julie Clease

From

Perfect!....The best thing about the vacation was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a vacation should be.

Shakespeares Way & Thames Path walking vacation
From
£533
excluding flights
Memorable parts? During the course of the week one cannot fail to be impressed by the sights seen on the Thames Path, sadly the planned programme didn't allow time to visit these places. Tips? To make sure that the daily walks are within their capabilities, even though the paths are on the level. The Thames path is well maintained but it was noticeable as you approached London, through London and to the east that a number of the signs had been vandalised/pointing in the wrong direction....

From
£555
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the vacation was during dolphin-watching, when a baby dolphin with it’s' mother, dived in and out of the water, around both sides of our boat. They swam very close to us. Sarah, who steered the boat, knew the sea area near Cromarty and the Black Isle extremely well. She gave us an informative and exhilarating boat journey. Tips? This is a bespoke vacation so discuss with Deborah, the marine biologist, exactly what you would like to experience.... (more)Manjinder Jagdev
