The trip fulfilled our expectations. We were also lucky with the foliage. The tour guide had interesting things to say, and was helpful. The lunch wasn't great, but at a nice place nevertheless.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

A very good day's tour. It was really interesting to drive through the countryside and view the scenery. You have to be very lucky to choose the correct week to view the leaves at their best. We were just a few days to early to see it at its best but we still saw some lovely colours. We had picked this week to visit as all the indications on the internet were that this would be the peak week. However due to the warm summer it was a bit later. It was a bit frustrating that all the best colours were viewed on the coach and when we stopped at various spots the leaves were not so good there for photo taking.
