Once that was sorted the rest of the tour went smoothly.!

this is definitely a trio worth doing! the oak tree plantation is impressive and the history around it very interesting. We were very lucky to have had an amazing bus driver. he was great fun and such a source of knowledge, he made the trip even better! have tried a few day trips via this app but I have to say this was by far the best!
