THE e tour was fine but there was confusion the railway said the tickets were incorrect but they let us on anyway. Also the ticket for the off and on bus in York the driver said he had not seen it before. Also Same at Jarvic Center but because we had the original E-mail we werer admitted. It appears that the tour company did not communicat properly with the vendors..otherwise it was a very pleasant day. I would recommend it.
