Our travel company was quite efficient in planning our trip, thanks our travel agent. She was prompt in answering my queries especially my concerns as to train drop off / hotels locations so as to minimize finding and getting to the respective hotels outside of the CIE 1 week coach tour. In fact the hotels were within walking distance from the train station so that we had some additional sight-seeing. Scotland was beautiful and the arrangement made by our agent for us to stay at the Hollyrod Park hotel the was an eye-opener for us since we enjoyed the stay there simply because of Hollyrood Park and the mountain climbing. The hotel was great and if I had to do it over I would have opted to stay additional days here. Maybe next time.
The tour guide and the driver were 2 pleasant and helpful persons. Thanks to our driver for keeping us safe throughout the drive/trip.
There was one problem though, due to the bad weather we could not take the ferry to the Isle of Skye - no fault of you guys, the tour company or our guide, just the weather. However I would recommend that since this is a possible outcome ( known ) , could there be put in place a plan B to compensate ( not monetary ) should the occur in the future? I would like to have some feedback on this please.
We would like to again express our thanks to our agent for the wonderful arrangements, will send her an e-mail soon.
