Jason's review for another Explore tour
“The best of the three explore trips I've been on, in part because the coach journeys were mostly of tolerable length and there were sufficient stops for decent toilets!”

Jill's review for another Explore tour
“On the train journeys, my friend and I were often separated, even though we had booked the holiday together. Sometimes we could swap with others, but I am surprised that we were not booked on the trains as a pair, travelling together as friends. Otherwise an excellent trip.”
