Testimonials of Great Britain

For many England is summed up in 3 well known clichés: bad weather, bad food and possibly not quite so bad tea. And while clichés always have a little bit of truth to them, the country has long since moved up in the ranks of worthwhile holiday destinations.  It would be silly to expect scorching summers on a northern European Island, but surely the weather is not the only reason to travel the world.

Our accomodations were simply excellent

We had a fabulous time on our 2 week tour through the UK and Ireland! Our accomodations were simply excellent. We especially loved the B&Bs we stayed in Yorkshire (a medieval farm manor house), the Lake District (a gorgeous Victorian country house), and Edinburgh (a Georgian town home decorated perfectly with Victorian era furnishings and a view of the castle). Our hotels in London and Dublin were also very well located – close to the center of town, but quiet. | Read more...

What I liked the most is the flexibility I had

I would like to thank Umfulana for organizing a wonderful trip to the UK. What I liked the most is the flexibility I had in planning the tour that my family wanted, rather than going with a rigid plan which usually packaged tours have. Since I drove from London to Edinburgh with stops at Cambridge, York, Lakes, Glasgow and Edinburgh, I really experienced UK's urban areas and country side. In London our stay was arranged in a Townhouse Hotel near | Read more...

Umfulana took care of all of the details and it went perfectly smoothly

Our trip was just fabulous. The bed and breakfasts were are well-chosen and the itinerary was great, if a little ambitious at times, if we really wanted to see as much as possible. Umfulana took care of all of the details and it went perfectly smoothly. Thank you!

The houses and their gardens were beautiful, and our hosts made us feel very welcome

The places we stayed in the Yorkshire Dales (with Pamela) and in the Lake Distirct (with David) were the highlight of our trip. The houses and their gardens were beautiful, and our hosts made us feel very welcome. Each provided us with their recommendations of things to do, and were gracious and easy to talk to. Could not have been better.

They also have good suggestions for touring around

Dear Jerry, we enjoyed the tour of Scotland you planned for us and we thank you. The place near Glasgow was so interesting and the hosts love to socialize with their guests at the end of the day. The property is 500 acres and beautiful. The castle near Minard was excellent. Skye was my favourite...first class all the way. You should book for dinner as the chef is fantastic. Also the place is a surprise at the end of a | Read more...

The Scotland adventure was great.

Jerry, sorry for my delay in responding to your email. After returning from the trip I went right back to work. The Scotland adventure was great. Your choice of B&B's was perfect. CNN forecast had 5 of 8 days with rain but in fact only the first day had isolated showers with one day of windy cool weather. My friend needed to recover from a wedding in Rio so took a day to rest. All of the families were | Read more...
