The Grand UK Tour – Sharon & Steve
In Our Customer’s Say Blog Series, you have the voice! Read the testimonial of our dear customers Sharon and Steve, who went on a journey of a lifetime: exploring the major sites in England, Scotland and Wales in just 3 weeks!
My husband and I researched for several years what we wanted to do in Great Britain. We’re an older couple but active and like to see a lot. Our goal was to cover the major areas of England, Scotland & Wales in 3 weeks.
We are most interested in the landscapes, meeting people, active participation, seeing gardens, animals, castles, a few theatrical performances, culture experiences and eating good food. We knew the type of travel experience we were looking for.
We planned together for a year with Andrew on the phone going over our preferences, options & price choices.
Andrew located the right mix of accommodations. Small quaint, family-run & larger lodgings with larger rooms & more conveniences. It is a mix that we enjoy.
At the completion of planning we were sent a detailed itinerary for review. Still we talked a few more times to work on a few extra details like finding places for religious worship in small towns. Andrew, Annette & Beatrice were always quick to respond and attentive to our questions, wishes, needs & preferences.
Once in Great Britain a packet of documents was waiting for us with all entrance coupons and other information needed. This included postal codes, addresses & phone numbers for every stop. (Critical!)
At the end of the trip we felt that Finest Journeys had selected the best sites and number of days at each location. We asked to see a lot and they gave it to us.
What we’d really like to rave about was how Beatrice, one of their staff was always available by text or phone to deal with issues that would inevitably crop up. And, when we left a jacket at a hotel Beatrice made all the arrangements for it to be located and sent to another lodging further along in our journey.
Andrew, Beatrice & Annette really helped to make our trip to Great Britain ‘a trip of a lifetime’.
We will happily recommend Finest Journeys to friends and have them plan our next European experience.
Sharon & Steve
