Greg was a great, very personable guide, gave us all the background information and answered every question. The stations and tours selected were spot on. All in all, an all-round successful trip that we can warmly recommend to everyone.

Friendly and knowledgeable drivers. Great idea suggested by the HOHO info centre was to do a curcuit then work out where to get off. Guide book was very informative.

It was great to be able to take in the beautiful scenery without one of us having to drive.

The bus drivers were very informative, very friendly. The buses were very comfortable

Our guide, Monica, was fantastic as was the scenery and the entire day.
