We just returned from a tour of the Highlights of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Our trip was nothing short of fabulous. We made reservations with Touraine, a first rate company with tons of experience. They are based in Colorado and Switzerland and have a vast array of tours in most major cities around the world for the traveler to choose from. My mother is a travel agent and she recommended them to us, so how could we say no? Having never done a tour such as this, ever, we thought it would be wise for us to go there the first time to have places introduced to us, rather than trying to navigate our way around Great Britain ourselves. It was a wise decision. I cannot imagine having to rent a car, drive on the right side of the car and on the right side of the road! I think we would have spent half of our time being lost.
Prior to leaving for our Touraine vacation, we were each sent paperwork, including a detailed itinerary, luggage tags, name tags and a quality tote bag. Things were looking very good. We chose a Highlights Tour because we felt it would give us what we wanted to see which was the most we could for the length of time we were spending there. Touraine has brochures which are available at travel agencies.
