Mrs Julia Astbury

Tour itinerary was excellent and included all the main sights. Tour guide very knowledgeable. However, the flights were poor. The stop over at Hamburg was acceptable but having to wait 4 hours in Dublin on the return leg was terrible especially following a transatlantic flight. Comfort Inn in Boston was substandard and jaded. Room was clean but unhygienic hand basin. (have photo if required). No bar or lounge facilities to relax in. Too far out even though a shuttle bus was provided (late and held up in traffic).
