With Britain gearing up to receive a massive tourist influx for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to be held in July, and Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June, several travel companies are offering a range of Best of Britain tours.
CIE Tours International, a US-based guided tour company, is offering escorted tours of Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales for travellers visiting the country for the upcoming events.
Eight or nine-day Best of Britain itineraries include travel by deluxe motor coach, overnight stays in first class hotels, and guided tours of local attractions. All vacations are inclusive of airport transfers, transportation, taxes and porter fees, admission fees, as well as all meals, special attractions and evening entertainment.
The Best of Britain itinerary will feature Stonehenge and Bath, Oxford, a Scottish cabaret dinner show, a banquet at Cardiff Castle, walking tours of Oxford and York, and visits to Windsor and Alnwick Castles, Tintern Abbey, and the Roman Baths. The package prices commence at $1,648 per person, and information regarding all tours is available on the company’s own website.
CIE Tours International president, Brian W Stack, said, ‘The reasons to visit Britain are far too numerous to count. However, it is clear our itineraries, especially our new Best of Britain tour, have never been more timely or exciting.’
