"This was our first coach trip with Leger and it was perfect."
We love coach travel. As the only driver in the house it’s a real treat for me to be able to sit back and enjoy the journey and watch the scenery change as we travel through Europe. It took two days on the coach, with an overnight stay at a very comfortable city-style hotel on route, to get to the mountain village of Brandenburg and we enjoyed every mile of it.
We were looked after all the time by the excellent Ian and Stuart, our crew and guides who could not have been more helpful and entertaining. We travelled Silver Service which meant the coach was extremely comfortable and all our luggage was taken care of. Drinks were served throughout the journey and we could even watch DVD’s or listen to the on-board music through our own personal set of headphones provided by Leger.
The family run hotel where we stayed in Brandenburg, The Gasthof Ascherwirt, was everything we expected: clean and comfortable, and a nice sized room offering spectacular views, a generous breakfast and a good choice of main courses at dinner. This was an all-inclusive holiday so wine and beer was free in the evenings which encouraged a nice party atmosphere!
The holiday was made up of an itinerary off five days of outings, some included and some optional. The trips allowed us to visit Innsbruck where we had an excellent guided tour, Berchtesgaden, Hitler’s ‘Eagles Nest' (the ride up the winding mountain road in the special buses is both spectacular and hair-raising) and Salzburg (and no....we did not dress up as nuns and run through the hills singing ‘The Hills are Alive’!).
We enjoyed Innsbruck the most, particularly because of the beauty of the place and the excellent guided tour which was both informative and entertaining.We have travelled with other coach companies in the past and although they might have been a little cheaper, the well known saying “You get what you pay for” is certainly so in the case of a Leger Holiday. We consider the extra spent to be money put to very good use.
This was our first coach trip with Leger and it was perfect. We have already booked another tour - a river cruise on the Rhine - and we can’t wait!
We would thoroughly recommend Leger to all our friends and family.
