Everything was wonderful! We had a pleasant gentleman pick us up from the airport (and he was so sweet even though we were two hours late), the hotels were top-rate, the food was delicious, and our guide (who is so knowledgeable and helpful) and driver were amazing. They even got us a tour of Edinburgh Castle before it opened. It's the little touches that CIE offers that makes me keep coming back.

Absolutely!!....just about everything was great--tour director (Patrick), driver (Paul), the Castles, the history, the individual tours and the people that gave the tours, the food, the hotels, the Scotish people, the fact that everyone spoke English, even tho you had to pay close attention sometimes....I didn't like the way they measure out their drinks in those 25 ml definitely do not get your money's worth, but they make great cocktails and I got a few new recipes...

I paid for a 5 star vacation which is not what I received. Some of the accommodations were horrendous. Fortunately we had a great guide to smooth some of the problems out.
