We took the hop on/hop off bus twice, since we got the 2-day pass. The first tou guide was terrific and we enjoyed it very much. The 2nd tour guide on the following day was truly awful...we had to get off and walk! The route itself is good, with lots of great stops. It's the guide who can make the tour special, and we experienced it extra-special and pretty awful! Five stars for first guide, no stars for second guide.
We enjoyed this tour very much, despite the downpour at the Giants Causeway! The scenery was superb. Our driver/guide was top-notch and adapted the tour appropriately to avoid the July 12 marches in Belfast. We were disappointed to miss Belfast, but it was the right call. The tour is a bit long.
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This was a wonderful taste of the Highlands and our guide was terrific - Ian, I believe. His narrative and descriptions were entrancing and he was very responsive to our group's questions and interests. We would highly recommend this tour - the scenery was unbeatable and we liked the inclusion of the little nature walks on some of our stops.
The Giverny and lunch parts of this tour deserve 5 stars! Our guides were wonderful, the bus was clean and spacious, and Giverny was, of course, amazing. Our lunch stop along the stream was perfect. However, I would not recommend anyone going to Versailles. Our tour guide did her best, but the crowds at Versailles were, in my opinion, dangerous. The gardens at Versailles were magnificent - but the struggle through the throngs inside was not.
