My family and i were enjoying this tour so much! Everything started & ended on time. Our Tour guide was Andy, he was very nice & funny. He took care of everyone of us even before the trip started. We appreciated that so much.

Very good for its value. GoEUGo is a Hong Kong-based company and it seemed that a majority of its clients were from the East. The tour guide (Andy/Andi) was very good about accommodating to the diverse international audience aboard the tour. We thought his English was pretty good and he was very available for any questions and advice during the tour. He wasn't necessarily a history professor but was very kind, available for questions about the areas (bathrooms, restaurants, shops, etc.), and did a solid job trying to herd all of the families on the tour. You're on a bus with other families. Assigned seats because some families only join for certain parts of the tour. So the tour group expands and contracts as you move along. Be aware that if you travel during Christmas and the New Year many places may be closed. Also, you're basically trying to see all of the UK in seven days . . . it's going to be fast. If you only have a certain time-frame in which to visit, and you don't want to 'break the bank' to do it, it's a great option. We were really quite pleased. We never could have seen as much as we did in the time that we did by trying to coordinate the trip on our own. We acknowledge some of the concerns mentioned in other reviews but we really had a good time and I could present reasonable counter-arguments/explainations for all of the complaints I've seen listed by others (but it would take too long to do so here). We understood some stuff would be closed for the Holidays and knew we would be moving fast (which is what we wanted because we didn't have a long time for our vacation in the UK anyways). Maybe some of the negative reviews had different tour guides than we had (Andy/Andi)? Our tour guide was great! We felt the value for your money was very good.

We've just completed a 4-Day England and Scotland Tour with goEUgo over Christmas. As the tour was from December 23 to 26, pretty much all attractions are closed on December 25 and 26. Even though the attractions were closed, we did visit some "free" areas. However, we were very confused why the tour guide (Miriam Meszaros) felt the need to always rush us from one place to another. On December 25, we arrived at our airport hotel in Manchester at 4PM (prior to the actual tour date, we confirmed with goEUgo that the arrival time at the hotel would be around 6:30PM). We arrived at the hotel 2.5 hours earlier than scheduled, so you can imagine how the tour guide "rushed" us so that we can spend more time doing nothing in the airport hotel which is very far from any attraction. On December 26, the same thing happened again, we were rushed to leave Bicester Village. The normal drop-off time at St. Pancras Railway Station was at 7:30PM, but we were once again rushed to complete the tour and we arrived back in London around 5:30PM, 2 hours earlier than scheduled. Thankfully, we were able to contact the driver of the coach company we've arranged to pick us up at the station. If you're thinking of taking the goEUgo Purple Line, do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. Seriously.
