Je suis partie faire un circuit avec l agence salaun holidays basée À pont du buis en Bretagne. Voyage horrible ! Agence nulle ! Je déconseille fortement de voyager avec eux ! Ils sont nuls ! Prix du voyage exhorbitant et prestations nulles.. Et ça se pretend voyage haut de gamme ! Honteux ! Repas dans des bistrots de rues à des prix très bas.. Hôtels sales et de basses qualités.. Autobus en panne tout le temps ce qui nous a fait perdre du temps. Tous les sites intéressants on n a pas pu les voir. Guide minable tout le temps sur son portable.. Pas du tout concerné par sa responsabilité des voyageurs... J ai fait une réclamation et j attends encore leur réponse ! Incroyable de voir le laxisme et le "je m en fous" de ses gens ! Fuyez cette agence et toutes celles en France ! Je me suis adressée à l agence de libourne près de Bordeaux et tout le monde s en fout aussi !

Voyage très complet mais pas du tout optimisé. Beaucoup trop de route et de déplacements inutiles parce que les hôtels étaient mal placés . Du coup pas assez de temps consacré aux visites . La journée dans lles highlands n’a pas été interessante car trop de temps passé sur la route et trop peu en visites . Il aurait fallu la faire sur 2 jours en dormant la bas, et en partant d’Édimbourg et non de Glasgow . Nous avons passé 3 nuits à Glasgow ce qui n’était avbsolument pas central pour nos visites . De surcroît notre guide était nul : explications et informations réduites à leur minimum . Impossible de poser des questions qui ne faisaient pas partie de sa préparation la qualité du tour dépendant à 50 % de la qualité du guide, vous pouvez en déduire notre niveau de satisfaction
