Best of Great Britain Self Drive
London • Bath • Liverpool • Lake District • Scottish Highlands
Experience the most interesting and exciting cities that Great Britain has to offer on a tour. Starting off in the city of London, a vibrant and colourful city with something for every visitor, whether it be the latest fashions on Oxford and Bond Street, star-studded theatre performances or simply the sights from the comfort of a Thames River cruiser. Then head west to the attractive Georgian spa town of Bath via the famous stones of Stonehenge, one of the most recognisable archaeological monuments in the world.
For a taste of more contemporary culture Liverpool provides fascinating tours based on the meteoric rise of the "Fab Four" before you are once again charmed by the stunning peaks and valleys of the beautiful Lake District. A short drive takes you over the border to Scotland and eventually the stylish city of Glasgow. The perfect starting point for a tour of the majestic Scottish Highlands where a lake-side drive along the shore of Loch Ness might just reveal its most famous resident.

A BIG THANK YOU from me and my wife to you for all your organizing of our trip, especially given the short timelines that you pulled this off in.
Everything went off well without a hitch, including all of the flight tickets and hotel bookings that you did. We didn’t experience any issues at any of the places. WELL DONE!!
The accommodation that you arranged at each place was really nice and we weren’t disappointed once – a few were really well beyond our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed the self-drive tour of England, Scotland and Ireland, even if it was a bit rushed, but we knew that we had a lot to see and do in two weeks.
We will definitely use your services again in the future.
Many thanks, Ian
