EXTENDED TOURS INCLUSIONS
What is included in your tour price:

Arrival and departure airport transfers on all tours over 5 days in duration, within 3 days of the arrival and departure date of the tour. You are able to have one transfer at the beginning and end of the tour. This transfer is to the tour departure hotel or to a hotel of your choice from your airport of arrival in the city from which your tour begins.

If your initial transfer is not to the tour hotel (but to one that you've booked independently prior to the tour starting) then you are obliged to make your own way to our tour hotel on the morning of departure. However, should you not have had an initial airport transfer, then you can be transferred, free of charge, from the hotel you're using prior to the tour to the tour hotel.

Similarly, at the completion of the tour, you may take either a return transfer to the airport or a transfer from the tour hotel to another one in which you might be staying for an extended time.

All tours commence from a major city. The first and last nights of the tour are spent in that major city and the accommodation is included in the tour price. This does not apply to the 4-day tours where you depart from London or Glasgow. In this case, your city accommodation has to be booked separately.

Accommodation is in three-star lodgings. If unobtainable, then an equivalent standard will be reserved. All rooms with private facilities, unless specifically informed at the time of booking your tour. Accommodations include country inns, manor houses, cosy farmhouses and quaint family owned B+B's whilst on tour (see Booking Conditions for exceptions). Where not available, properties of similar standards are used. All rooms with bathroom unless specifically advised before a reservation is made.

PLEASE NOTE: the vast majority of the accommodations we use do not have traditional-style porterage (neither do they have lifts/elevators). Your guide, however, will normally be able to assist with your baggage. BUT please do note that if you bring along bags that are heavier than the normal standard airline permissable weight and size, European Health and Safety regulations apply. Under these circumstances guides will be within their rights should they be reluctant to carry that bag.

All transportation aboard our comfortable 6 to 13 seat mini-coaches and the services of a driver/guide throughout.

Cooked breakfast daily* whilst on tour and dinners every night**. See detailed tour itinerary for full meal inclusions.

*In tour arrival cities - London, Paris, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Nice, Rome and Dublin, continental breakfast is served. All tours on the European mainland include continental breakfast.

**On all tours over four nights, one dinner is not included, usually in a major city stop to allow tour participants some independence and flexibility. Dinners are never included in arrival and departure cities unless specifically stated in the tour itinerary.

All sightseeing and entrance fees when accompanied by driver/guide. All taxes. All tips and gratuities (except to guide/companion) to outside suppliers but you're free to supplement if the service warrants such.

No Cancellation Guarantee - once a deposit has been made, we promise that we will never cancel the tour. If you have invested your travel dreams with us, we will honour them! Should you be, however, the only person booked on a tour, we'll advise you in advance and you'll be given the opportunity of changing on to another tour or cancelling at no cost to yourself.

A comprehensive 'Pre-Departure Booklet' will be sent on receipt of full tour payment.

What's not Included

Air Fares to Europe. Air travel must be booked independently and the flight details given to us so that we can organise your arrival and departure transfers, if applicable.

Driver/Guide gratuity is at your discretion.

Lunches, social drinks, items of a personal nature and entrance fees when not accompanied by our Driver/Guide.

Occasional optional evening theatre/festival visit.

Incidental expenses, such as telephone bills, newspapers and room service incurred at accommodations is the responsibility of the individual client. All expenses are settled prior to leaving the accommodation.

Laundry costs and any shipping charges for the return of purchases made on tour, or for the return of property lost on tour.

Astral Travels uk sightseeing tours. Testimonials title
  ”Our guide, David, and driver, Ian, were fabulous. I hope to return to Britain and take another one of your tours, as they are smoothly run, comfortable and a lot of fun. Not only did we receive a great deal of information, but we were still able to do some roaming of our own. The pub lunch was great, as was the comfort in the bus. You all were also great in rearranging your pickup schedule when our tube station was closed.

Thanks again and I will recommend you to all I know!!

Sincerely,

Lisa Bundy

Montgomery, Alabama
