Leisure Time Tours take another sustainability step with compostable water bottles.


“Very good commentary and driver was extremely attentive when one of the passengers fell ill Very diligent on toilet stops. Coach was comfortable and there was good leg room between the seats. All in all, excellent!”    Val and Colin
“The driver was top notch – a very happy group. The driver’s commentary was great, he told us about things to see and do in plenty of time to see them. I would certainly go again with this company.”    D & L Collins
“We were given enough time to see events, but not too long. The Driver was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job, everything went very smoothly. We were disappointed not to do the cruise due to the weather, but a good alternative activity was found.”   P Sai
“Our driver of the highest calibre, he gave us a good commentary and was extremely kind and helpful to everyone. He mixed well with our group. A great variety of gardens was selected for our visits. Gardens were amazing, both public and private. We intend to book another tour!”    M Gould
“Really good trip, very pleasant people, thank you. Accommodation: some good, some excellent. Lovely sized coach, very comfortable, excellent for viewing.  Driver is very good, business-like, covers all bases. Your tours are always professional”    T Mann
