    The tour guide and the bus driver were superb. However, Blue-Roads delivered a bus with the airconditioning not working properly. The outside temperature was on average 33-35 degrees. When a complaint was put in to Blue-Roads they did nothing to rectify the problem and tried to blame the driver and tour guide!! The situation was handled so badly by the company. Had it been the following week where temperatures were 45 degrees in the North of France it would have been insufferable. They are still not accepting responsibility for putting on a second rate bus!! It has been very bad form and disgraceful behavior on behalf of the company. The guide made the trip exceptional despite the poor bus and the bad attitude of the company

    I think it’s a subject you have be interested in. The tour itself was well run and structured. Just that it wasn’t what I expected.

    We had an excellent guide and driver, and the tour took us everywhere we needed to go including a side trip to visit a relative's grave. It is great travelling in a small group.
