Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

The best of Britain and Ireland are served up on this 8-day adventure crisscrossing five different countries. See landscapes that have inspired poetry, medieval monuments to God and stony fortresses that housed royals, soldiers and important artefacts. You'll wind your way through the Yorkshire Dales, wander down Edinburgh's Royal Mile and discover a bit of the craic in Dublin, before fine crystal, Celtic tales and a fairy-tale castle or two complete your journey.

Day 1 - Arrive London (1 Night)
Your whirlwind journey through the United Kingdom and Ireland launches in its exhilarating capital. After checking in, explore this multicultural city your way, embracing all the pomp and pageantry of Britain's capital. Visit one of the many museums that reveal the history and culture of the world, pay your respects to Her Majesty or pop into your neighbourhood 'local' for a pint or two to kickstart your exploration of Britain and Ireland in style.
Accommodation: Ibis Earls Court

Day 2 - London – Stratford-upon-Avon – York – Bradford (1 Night)
This morning meet your Travel Director and fellow travel companions. Your whirlwind journey through Great Britain and Ireland launches in London. As the boroughs of the Old Smoke give way to the beautiful shires north of its skyscrapers, you'll enjoy a scenic drive through lush green landscapes bound for Shakespeare country. Visit Stratford-upon-Avon where you'll come face to face with the legacy of England's beloved bard before heading to York. Your Travel Director will take you for an orientation walk through its medieval streets to the sacred York Minster, where every piece of stained glass and limestone block was placed for the glory of God. Continue to your hotel in Bradford where tonight you'll dine in a local restaurant.
Accommodation: Jurys Inn/Holiday Inn Garforth
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 3 - Bradford – Lake District – Gretna Green – Glasgow (2 Nights)
You're in for a serene start to your morning as you wind your way through the limestone hills and valleys of the Yorkshire Dales. Rustic stone villages, sheep-filled pastures, castles and abbeys line your route to England's celebrated Lake District. At Lake Windermere, an Optional Experience could take you back to the days of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth who proclaimed the area "the loveliest spot that man hath found". Board an optional cruise on a private boat, skimming the northern coastline, deserted islands and Wray Castle. Then cross the Scottish border and stop in Gretna Green where eloping couples would tie the knot over the anvil. Continue to Glasgow later today. Your afternoon orientation of this former industrial hub turned vibrant modern metropolis will include views of the cathedral, the Clyde River and George Square where many of Scotland's most famous sons are immortalised in stone.
Accommodation: Ibis City Centre
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Edinburgh Excursion
A day spent exploring Scotland's exquisite capital will leave you in no doubt as to why it captured the hearts of Charles Dickens, Charlotte Bronte and even Queen Victoria. Your Local Specialist will reveal all the highlights of Auld Reekie. View the Royal Mile, the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the shadow of Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh Castle which watches over the city from Castle Rock. Exchange the medieval façades of Old Town for grand Georgian-lined boulevards across the Leith. You'll have some time to explore Edinburgh your way or consider joining one of two special Optional Experiences, boarding the Royal Yacht Britannia for a brush with royalty or exploring what lies behind the impenetrable walls of Edinburgh Castle. This evening surrender to the skirl of bagpipes during an optional dinner in Stirling with views of its Castle and the Wallace Memorial by night.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Glasgow – Belfast – Dublin (2 Nights)
Your visit to Scotland culminates in a scenic drive along the Ayrshire coast, the rugged landscapes where Robert Burns, Scotland's National Poet, was born and raised. Pass Ailsa Craig, the figurative stepping stone from Scotland to Ireland before boarding your short ferry crossing to Northern Ireland. You won't dally in its trendy capital, but there's time to see the City Hall, Queen's University and the dock where the ill-fated Titanic was built. Head south to Dublin, your home for the next two nights. There's no better way to embrace the energy of the city than joining an optional dinner at one of its most popular restaurant-pubs. Rub shoulders with the locals as you dive into dinner and a solid dose of Irish craic.
Accommodation: Citywest/Maldron Tallaght
Meals: Breakfast

Day 6 - Dublin Sightseeing and Free Time
You're in for a 'grand' time in the Irish capital this morning as your Local Specialist shares all the highlights. See Trinity College, Dublin Castle and St. Patrick's Cathedral, founded in the 12th century. Its 43-metre spire makes this the country's tallest church. See the stately Georgian Squares then spend the rest of the day on your own. Head down to Grafton Street or Temple Bar for a pint of the Black Stuff or stroll along the Liffey through the heart of Dublin. This evening, an optional dinner and cabaret evening will have your toes tapping and taste buds craving another round of Irish coffee.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Dublin – Kilkenny – Waterford (1 Night)
You won't need to don your Sunday best to visit stylish County Kildare, although the heart of Ireland's horseracing community with its elegant estates will have you wishing you could linger a little longer. Continue through the splendid countryside bound for Kilkenny where you'll see its beautiful 12th-century castle, an enduring symbol of Normal occupation. Later you'll arrive in Waterford where a visit to the House of Waterford Crystal will reveal a wonderland of delicate crystal, from stemware to fine china. You're in for a riveting history lesson when you join an Optional Experience in a Waterford pub with a Local Specialist. Visit one of the area's oldest pubs for a pint, likely not served in Waterford crystal class, but just as memorable. Dinner tonight is at your hotel.
Accommodation: Treacys/Viking
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 8 - Waterford – Cardiff (1 Night)
Say your goodbyes to the Emerald Isle, crossing St. George's Channel to Wales. Small in size but significant in stature, Wales is the fifth country on this journey across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Its vibrant capital is your final destination today. Here you'll view the Millennium Centre, the National Assembly and the historic Castle at its heart. Climb the 900-year-old Norman keep and perhaps walk on the battlements during an optional private tour of Cardiff Castle this afternoon. Your choice of Optional Experiences this evening could see you venture into the Welsh countryside for dinner at a 14th-century inn or enjoy an evening of Welsh music, culture and humour at the Millennium Centre, an iconic building in Cardiff Bay.
Accommodation: Copthorne
Meals: Breakfast

Day 9 - Cardiff – Bath – Windsor – London (1 Night)
Cross the Severn Estuary into England and venture to Bath with its elegant Georgian architecture. The city's healing waters saw it emerge as a wellness centre as far back as Roman times and you could choose to visit what remains of its Roman Baths before heading to Windsor to view the world's oldest and largest inhabited castle. There's time for a quiet stroll along the banks of the river and shop for Royal souvenirs before arriving in London.
Accommodation: Ibis Earls Court
Meals: Breakfast

Day 10 - Depart London
It's time to close the curtain on your epic adventure across the England and Ireland. You'll say a fond farewell to new friends as you prepare for your return journey home. A London Heathrow airport shuttle service is available to purchase. Conditions apply.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Costsaver Tours

Costsaver has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

Costsaver asks that you please take personal responsibility for your wellbeing. This begins with packing any personal protective equipment and sanitizers you require. Please adopt physical distancing and hygiene practises throughout your pre-trip travel arrangements and follow all health instruction whether physical signage, or requests from the professional staff once you are vacationing.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Costsaver will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Costsaver have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

Costsaver is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Costsaver does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Costsaver only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.

Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Costsaver is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Questions & Answers

Question: Hi, what are the optional experiences for this tour?

For more information on optional tours, please give us a call at 1-800-935-2620 and speak with a travel consultant.

Question: When it says view, is it just ride by on the bus or walk by on walking tour? Do we actually go inside to really see these buildings?

CostSaver practices Visit, View and See. Anytime you see the word Visit you go inside, anytime you see the word View you walk near the landmark but don't actually go inside, and anytime you see the word See you simply drive by the location and see it from the tour coach.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Didn't meet staff the first day, the last day was only half day. We didn't visit some places from itinerary - just passed them. Bus was going the whole time on a highway- we didn't see any scenery.

This was my first Costsaver tour and it was amazing. Our consultant, Maureen and tour guide Rose were top notch, extremely knowledgeable, and true professionals. I will definitely use Costsaver again!

I prefer a step up on accommodations

Fantastic trip, we enjoyed all aspects of the travel, coach was clean and comfortable. Each city offered some free time for my wife and I to explore on our own, would recommend to others

Some of the rooms were substandard and the Costsaver staff did NOT do much to accommodate a disabled person with mobility limitations--including arranging for rooms with walk in showers for safety, or arranging to porter bags the final day. NONE of this was Ms. Sharara's fault, in my opinion, but that of the Costsaver staff.

Good trip. Itinerary not clear in some cases on what was/was not included. More "on your own" visiting was required than I expected.

I enjoyed this tour and it exceeded my expectations. The destinations were remarkable and it was a pleasure to see them all. Also, the tour Director was excellent and enthusiastic which made the experience even better.

I don't think the additional tours were explained very well in the things that I read on the internet. More costs were involved than I realized there would be

We were looking for more time spent in countryside, rather than so much time in large, congested cities. Our bus driver & tour director were very good. Most accommodations were very nice but hotel in Waterford (Treacy's) should never be included in tour. It was a fire hazard, with very uneven floors, dirty carpet and terrible food for dinner. Dinners included in tour were not very good, but breakfasts were consistently good. I highly recommend the optional tour just outside Waterford to he Saratoga waterfront pub with entertainment. It was a nice, intimate experience with wonderful Irish music performed by 3 very talented singers.

The most irritating part of the whole trip was that we did not have sufficient time at each location to be able to do any tours and/or have time to eat our meals and/or also be able to walk around and see the city sights. We felt like we were limited to having to choose between seeing the cities or touring the things we wanted to tour. We felt rushed and very much on a time crunch at each destination. One of the things that contributed to that was the fact that a few times we would stop for a restroom break 10 - 15 minutes before we reached the next destination and that would eat up 30 - 45 minutes or more of the time we could have spent sightseeing. This would be after only an hour or so of driving. We may have been "spoiled" by our last tour (Globus, booked through AFFORDABLETOURS.COM) where the guide was extremely knowledgable of all of the cities we drove through and everything in between. She would give us information about so many things we passed on the drive from one city to the next. He did give us some information, as we neared the cities, but it was mostly political history/facts. Some of that is okay but I wanted more different information on the places we went to than mainly the political side. Our guide on this trip seemed to be more concerned with allowing people to sleep during the drives, and many of the people did sleep on the drives so I felt like that was a hinderance to our guide. We paid a lot of money to take our son, his wife, our daughter and ourselves to visit these countries to see and absorb as many sights and as much information as we could and we didn\'t want to waste our time sleeping and miss anything.
