The British Isles
This is intended as a " highlights" tour of Britain and Ireland. As with all of our itineraries, it is a suggested one and we will be happy to amend it to suit the particular interests of your group. For instance, as this was originally designed for an adult group, a day browsing in Cotswold villages may not be top of the list of priorities for a high school group. Similarly, as group leader, you may not wish to take the group on a tour of the Guinness Brewery!
