Rugged landscapes and ancient kingdoms - the heritage of Scotland and England revealed on this jaunt past medieval cities, shimmering lochs and rugged Highland cliffs.

View Anne Hathaway's thatched cottage and visit Shakespeare's Birthplace and Visitor Centre for insights into the life of the 'Bard of Avon', before exploring the charming cobblestone streets of his hometown.

We save $500 each by using this service. Grant was excellent and answering all of our questions and scheduling us for the trip.

By Alfred S on May 17, 2019

Our tour director was excellent, highly organized and informative.

By Richard A on Aug 11, 2017

This was the 3rd Trafalgar tour we have been on. Our tour guide was exceptional and more than met our expectations. We also felt that the bus driver was also exceptional, not only a good and careful driver, but also courteous and helpful each time we got on and off the bus. Some of the hotel rooms had bath tubs instead of stall showers and you had to climb 3 feet into the tub with no hand rails. This created a dangerous situation in which we could have fallen.

By James H on Oct 07, 2016

We have taken 2 trips with Trafalgar (Greece last year and Britain this year) and they have been great. A good value.

By June R on Sep 25, 2015

The only problem was the hotel room not ready when we go to London.

By Gary W on Sep 10, 2015

Very organized tour. We tried hard to stay on schedule and did very well. Saw an amazing amount of history in 8 days! Tour director was very informed and knowledgeable about the places we visited. Would highly recommend this tour.

By Alan B on Sep 13, 2013

Our Trafalgar Guide did not meet the traveling group prior to the departure morning - and then late. There was no coordination on the part of Trafalgar until the group was to leave, causing a late departure. Many travelers did not receive a wake-up the first morning as there was no confirmation of the hotel room assignments by Trafalgar. The Trafalgar Representative that met the group the first night had no idea what he was doing - seemed completely lost or just did not care about his responsibilities. This was our fourth trip with Trafalgar and our last. 

By Subrata M on Aug 16, 2013

Everything went right with our GB trip w/Trafalgar. Even the weather wwas very agreeable!

By JOANN B on Jul 12, 2013

Everything was wonderful. We are feeling a little old for such a fast pace, though. Perhaps more two night stays rather than so many one nights would be easier for us. You now offer a young people's option. An option for parents or grandparents and teens would be fun. We were lucky that there were several teenagers on the trip to keep our granddaughter company.

By Nancy N on Jun 22, 2013

Our tour guide on Amazing Britain with Trafalgar was amazing. He really made the tour. My only complaint is that we really didn't have enough time in London to see much. 

By Evelyn S on Apr 23, 2010

all in all my trip was everything I expected and more.
