Jim was a great tour guide. He was informative and knowledgeable but was also funny. The coach driver Pieter was amazing, getting us in and out of the narrow streets of France with ease. They both made for a great trip which we thoroughly enjoyed. We would travel with them anytime.

By Sandra C on Jul 21, 2013

Unfortunately the comment column did not respond when I clicked, but I was disappointed that the Operator did not provide information on its itinerary that the Imperial War Museum would not be available. The replacement was inadequate. The tour guide also lacked communication skills and seemed to have no true interest on the topic of the tour. Ultimately, he appeared just to be doing a job. Most of the excursions were very rushed and eventually the tour became very tiring. However, I did enjoy the cities and towns the tour covered.
