    Guide was well prepared. Plan changes due to unforeseen circumstances were handled well. However, though I would recommend Backroards, I would not recommend Historic Eastern England. The tour covered all that it promised. I just found that there was too much repetition; too many cathedrals, too many castles, too many manor houses and not enough variety. York was missed along with the National Railway Museum. Blue-Roads what I asked for. I just asked for too much of the same thing.
