Too many coach pickups making for an excessive long coach journey. Didn't help that driver missed turning for Chippenham pick up, accident on M5 then cross country journey back to pick them up. Had to stop at services just past Swindon. Why didn't they get taxi connection to services to meet us due to their mistake and time delay. We lost valuable time at event due to delay. Due to arrive at event at 3pm didn't arrive until 4.20pm. Should have clearer information of time in London on Sunday. Many people asking on coach. Families were not that keen to shop in oxford street, you could have specified or given options. We wanted to ice skate at winter wonderland however fully booked for day. If I'd have known in advance I could of booked. Some people changed their drop off to shorten their journey home arranging for family to collect them from services. May be motorway service pick up and drop off's would make for quicker journey's in the future. I fully enjoyed event, would have liked more time there so will be making my own travel plans in the future. Specified adjoining rooms for children in hotel, called to check in advance. Arrived at Hotel 12.10am to find my children were in a separate building! Had to arrange change of rooms with Hotel myself, tour guide still handing out room cards.

Olympia was fantastic but the long coach journey meant it was a very long day (left home at 6am, got to hotel at 11.00pm) and then being told that breakfast was at was a bit of a killer. Tour guide was lovely and well meaning but took 3 times as long to tell you the simplest information. He did pre-check us into the hotel, however, which was an added bonus. The coach did seem to go a long way around to get from stop to stop (Bolton to Accrington via Haslingden??) and I'm sure a more streamlined route would reduce the travel time and make the holiday more appealing.

We are very sorry if you found the sequence of pick ups somewhat lengthy. Very occasionally we receive insufficient response from a particular area to make operation possible on a whole coach and it becomes necessary to combine with another area in order for the tour to proceed. You will appreciate, I am sure, that these group travel arrangements revolve around full coaches and we are offering the holidays by many different newspapers and pick-up points on the same departure dates. Our Operations Department tries to ensure that pick-ups are en-route with the minimum of inconvenience to our customers and its planning process is dictated by the most appropriate coach routing for the pick-up points requested. It may be reassuring to know that each tour route is planned individually and it is unlikely that the same will be used for future tours.

Despite this, I am pleased that you enjoyed your time at Olympia.

I would like to say that Ben the driver was the best coach driver we have ever travelled with, very nice chap polite and helpful. And a very safe driver.
Show was brilliant, hotel was great, looking forward to our next trip with you.

The Olympia Horse Show was great - only problem is having seen it live now, the TV presentation is very substandard. The only downside is that the Olympia village is definitely for horsey people and many will find it too much so for them, if you are a horsey person then it has all you will ever want.

The excursion to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park was good, but rain and wind spoiled it - take full wesather gear.
