FAQ's

What to bring?

Clothing should be appropriate for the vagaries of the English weather. Remember your entrance fee money where it is paid for separately.  Don’t forget your camera!

Do the excursions include the entrance fee?

Some excursions do include any entrance fees and maybe other services as well such as a guided tour, refreshments and so on.  These will be clearly marked on the excursion description. Other trips may not include entrance fees.  We find that many of our customers are entitled to discounted or free entrance e.g. for National Trust properties and it is generally easier to deal with entrance fees on the day.  Also, we find that not everybody wants to go in.  Where appropriate, we will organise collection of entrance fee money on the day in order to secure a group entry rate.

Will there be comfort breaks on route?

We generally aim to stop every hour or so for a short break, depending on the availability of suitable stopping points.

What about lunch and refreshments?

There are normally a selection of places to eat depending on the tour itinerary.  We certainly allow time for eating and refreshments during our trips.  You are welcome to bring a packed lunch with you but we ask that you do not to eat on the minibus.

Can I bring a 'walker'?

Yes, we can take up to 3 walkers.  They must be included at the time of booking.

What is your minimum group number?

We have a minimum number of 12 people for a group booking but please let us know if you are struggling to reach this number as we may be able to combine you with some others.

What if I don’t hear back from you?

Occasionally emails get blocked by anti-virus software and don’t get through to us.  Sometimes we may have replied and the email has gone into your junk mail/ spam folder.  If you have not heard back from us within 48 hours then please do contact us by telephone.
