Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning, we'll travel to London and our overnight hotel. After check-in, we'll head to the Royal Albert Hall for our holiday highlight: Raymond Gubbay's Classical Spectacular.

The concert blends the very best of classical music with dazzling laser displays, and features performances from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, a choir, and trumpeters. During the evening, you'll hear classical favourites such as 'Rule Britannia', 'Zadok the Priest' and the Grand March from 'Aida', with Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture - together with cannons, muskets and indoor fireworks - bringing the show to its explosive finale.

At the end of the concert, the coach will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Day Two

After breakfast, we'll head to central London, where you can opt to do some leisurely shopping along Oxford Street and in classy Knightsbridge, or enjoy the chance to visit one of the city's many sights, museums and exhibitions. Alternatively, you may prefer to remain on the coach for a short panoramic sightseeing tour, taking in world-famous attractions such as The Tower of London and Buckingham Palace.

We'll leave the city in the afternoon and return to the local area, arriving by mid-to-late evening.

The tour manager had a very difficult task as the coach driver was on his first drive in London and the traffic was diabolical. She was gallantly assisting the driver and at the same time giving her commentary on the sights. This was distracting for her and the passengers as her commentary was disjointed, with repeated phrases, half sentences, half instructions to the driver. This spoiled the commentary and led to incorrect information being given on at least one or possibly two occasions.

I understand that drivers need to be trained and guided but the tour guide is primarily there for the passengers. Having said that both tour guide and driver did a fantastic job in the most difficult of circumstances, so well done to both.
