We had a wonderful day the driver was very descriptive with his commentary. We had initial hearing difficulties but he worked hard to eliminate them. I think it was very good value for money. There was one disappointment that we were unable to view the Creamery as a bus load had just turned up this was no fault of the organisers though. Thank you for such a well organised trip.
