Fantastic scenery, very good hotels, driver and guide.<br/>Comfortable coach.<br/>Guide friendly, informative and very helpful.<br/>We had a brilliant time, thank you.


Excellent meals and good hotel locations. Spectacular scenery in Norway in particular


Great cities, great scenery, reasonable journey times




The coverage of three countries in 12 days was fantastic and worth.


Enjoyed the scenery etc but sometimes spent a little too long on the coach - would have liked a couple of extra days to explore the places we stayed


Covers 3 countries quite well but insufficient time at some locations (cities). Too much time on coach - maybe holiday needs to be an extra 2 days. Early start times - especially for luggage to be collected. Poor quality of hotels and some disappoint...


Very enjoyable. Good mix of hotels and excellent locations. Food was very good.


Have already sent you a separate email regarding flight times and related pick ups on the way out and location of hotel in Stockholm, but still awaiting an acknowledgement/response from Archers.


Good tour. Some days were a bit long on bus. Maybe the tour tried to do too much. Visiting the capitals was great.


Too much personal info. re. Tour directors private life.<br/>Would have preferred more info. on places visited and supplied with map on the 3 countries.


An excellent holiday, hard work, but we covered everything we wanted to.<br/> Our driver Marius was superb


Delightful holiday superb hotels fantastic scenery and interesting cities.


A bit disappointed with some of the hotels which could have been better situated, the last hotel in Bromma was very comfortable but overlooking a motorway and next door to airport also would have taken a bit of time to actually get into Stockholm by ...


Far too much time spent on the coach travelling between hotels with very few stops at places of interest and too many early morning starts not the leisurely holiday we expected


This was a wonderful experience for both my wife and myself. The tour was always interesting. Nothing could be done about the weather on some days, and at least one hotel was not the best in the world, but the whole holiday was just great.


Very enjoyable with excellent guide, Andrej ( whom we had met last October on your East European tour which was nice, ) and dRiver Igor with whom we felt safe and confident.

Thank you for your request.
