This travel agency unconditionally earned and deserves our five-star rating of this masterfully designed and flawlessly executed trip.
Our Destination Design Specialist provided service excellence, seamless coordination, and masterful trip design in handcrafting a winning itinerary for our discovery trip to the U.K. She researched, coordinated, handpicked, and delivered a first-class travel experience for my two teenage children and me, fulfilling ambitious goals for our learning and appreciation of the culture, history, architecture, and natural beauty of England, Wales, an Scotland. Our first discussion left me impressed by her insightful inquiry into the individual interests and goals for our trip by my children and me, including academic subjects they enjoy and, for my son entering college, his chosen field of study. Our specialist expertly synthesized our traveler-specific information, my choice of hotel accommodations, and our private guide preferences, into her research and careful selection of a coveted list of unique hotel accommodations, world-class private guides who also served as our drivers along certain itinerary segments, a high-quality car rental for the self-driven part of our trip, and the most fascinating sightseeing venues, all of which fit our criteria perfectly. Our trip finale was first-class rail travel our specialist arranged for us, bringing us back to London for our flights home.
Our travel specialist additionally impressed me with the multiple reiterations she proactively ran our itinerary through with input from the company's Director and Master Trip Designer capitalizing on her 40+ years of intimate knowledge of U.K. travel. Our final itinerary comprised of the most efficient travel routes was attractively documented, with photographs and descriptions to guide each day's touring, in a meticulously prepared travel plan binder. Never before have I seen such highly personalized service, supreme diligence, and excellence every step of the way by a service provider. Our exceptionally helpful travel plan binder effortlessly guided our way from London, along multiple sightseeing stops and unique hotel stays, all the way to the idyllic Land's End in the southern end of the Cornwall Peninsula and along its scenic coastal road to the north, to the charming towns and national park of North Wales, to the picturesque hamlets and panoramic vistas of the Lake District in Northern England, to the awe-inspiring lochs (lakes) and forests of the Scottish Highlands, and to the historic castles of Scotland.
The attention to fine detail with which our trip was designed became evident in its perfect execution. The entire trip was completed flawlessly across its varied travel modes and multiple destinations. We returned home with priceless knowledge gained and appreciation for England, Wales, and Scotland--for their people, culture, history, architectural marvels, and scenic beauty--thanks to the dedicated service excellence and unparalleled travel experience designed and delivered to us by this travel agency.
The one-of-a-kind boutique hotels we stayed in London, Bath, North Wales, and the Lake District, along with our historic castle stays, will long be remembered with fondness and eagerness to return.
In addition to the overall trip, a five-star rating was also earned by each of our hand-picked private guides for their expertise, courtesy, flexibility, and high-quality private guiding. Each and all of our Blue Badge-certified private guides were an equally richly rewarding and memorable part of our trip.
If I were to take this trip again, I would skip the visit to Windsor Castle and would choose a longer stay in North Wales.
