Customer Reviews

The mix of free days & included trips was well...

17th October 2017
Trusted Customer

The mix of free days & included trips was well balanced. There were plenty of optional trips offered although some seemed rather expensive, as we did notice whilst out & about, some similar trips advertised for quite a bit less. When these optional trips are offered you don't know exactly how easy it is get around or what facilities there are, so tend to book what's offered. Two of our hotels were not up to the same standard as the rest & I felt let the holiday down. If price is a consideration to booking poorer hotels it would be nice to be offered the opportunity to choose & pay appropriately. When you've been in 4 star hotels & then get a 3 star it shows!
