England, Scotland & Wales
Loved, loved loved Rachel. Best tour director we ever had. Tour began September 2nd with a heat wave. Everyone dressed for much cooler weather but we really enjoyed all the blue skies and lack of rain during our trip. My husband had to buy short sleeve t-shirts and others purchased shorts. Was a great trip with a great group of folks and I really can’t complain about much of anything, although we could have used air conditioning at one of our hotels in Wales. Tauck is always the best at putting us in the middle of towns so we can explore on our own after hours. The Savoy was wonderful our last three days and loved the Beef Wellington the night we went to see “Tina” in London. The food was actually much better than I expected on this trip. We really covered a lot of ground seeing the usual UK highlights but Rachel had some really nice hidden gems for us as well. Loved the time we spent in Oxford at the inside the walls tour and dinner at Balliol College. We really loved the architecture of Bath and what a fun little town to explore. I definitely recommend this trip but you must have an appreciation of history and art. Lots of castles and palaces. Rachel was able to articulate the regional history in a concise and humorous way that never bored us.
