I am looking for info from tour alumni for the Best of Scotland.... just curious, the itinerary has the tour stopping at St Andrews, but I was curious to know if the tour includes the golf course or do we have free time to go to the St Andrews golf course. Husband is a golfer and he would enjoy going there to see it (I already have been in 2010). This year was his 1st RS tour (overseas, also). We went to Holland and Belgium april 2016, We have already signed up for his 2nd, my 3rd for 2017 Barcelona and Spain 8 day tour. So I am a planner/dreamer and was trying to figure out where our next destination would be in 2018 (LOL). Both retired now, so my desire is to do an overseas trip once a year. Guessing my next question is for Heart of Ireland alumni..... Did you all like this tour? I told husband that he needed to go to Ireland and I want to return to Ireland (I took the best of Ireland 14 day in 2014 with my sister). I loved Ireland. The heart of Ireland has a few spots that I did not get to see and a return trip to dingle area which was fanastic, cliffs of Moher (rainy the day we were there), I did not get the tour of Dublin or trinity college on my previous trip due to me running a half marathon instead of going with the group that day, and I have not been to Brú na Bóinne archaeology site. Planning stages of deciding to do back to back RS tours in 2018 1st one would be Heart of IReland 8 day tour. Flying into Shannon, ending up in Dublin. Next day fly to from Dublin to Edinburgh and then catch the RS Best of Scotland 10 day tour. Then head back home after tour was done. Guessing this would be doable and if you have done back to back tours, how was it? Guess that is all for now.
