ACTION PACKED ITINERARY AND FAULTLESS ARRANGEMENTS

LACK OF FREE TIME TO SHOP

We had never taken and all inclusive tour before nor had we used Archers. What a superb choice they turned out to be. The Wonders of China and the Mighty Yangzte was a fortnight of sheer delight. Every travel arrangment worked without a hitch, our tour director Kitty Shi could not have been more...

very poor customer care

We had a very similar but worse experience of Archers, to that reported by Mr Beveridge (27/12/04) to Ciao. We had to remind Archers to send the holiday documents. They were finally received only 4 days before departure! We had booked a resort holiday in Montecatini (travel via Venice Airport)...

Satisfactory

published 30/12/2007

Holiday to Italy with Archers was a complete disaster, ghastly hotels, very poor quality food and customer care appalling. Holiday rep only interested in optional extras at a high price. If you do not have to book with Archers - don't Not an experience to be repeated. Venice hotel, on busy main road with no facilities Rome hotel, miles from city centre. The only reason these hotels are used by Archers must be cost.

Nothing but

I booked and paid for a Canadian holiday costing approximately £1,500, along with a friend to share room and experience. Eleven days prior to leaving I became too ill to travel and although my companion was to approach her daughter to accompany her instead, I believed I was doing the right thing...

“Archers Italian Twin Centre”

published 27/12/2004

Virtually zero

Grossly overpriced, terrible resorts managers

Two days before leaving, received telephone call changing hotel in Monte Catini. Arrived in Venice, overnight hotel had torn and stitched bedding, peeling paint and, to 60% of us, inedible, reconstituted meat products. Hotel in Monte Catini now 1Km from center up a long hill NOT 200 metres from...

Initially I'd never heard of Archers Direct

We went on the Elvis & Southern Sounds tour last month and visited Graceland, Memphis & Nashville plus an great extension stay in Las Vegas. We were apprehensive about a touring holiday plus we hadn't booked with Archers Direct before. I read their customer holiday reviews on their website which...

“ ARCHERS HOLIDAY TO HAWAII”

published 24/07/2006

Everything you need for a well organised tour

None

We wanted a variation on the tour whereby we wanted to go to San Francisco first to break the journey and New York on the way back. The sales staff were excellent in getting us the type of 4 star accomodation we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble. The tour guide in Hawaii was superb and looked...

The trip last June was wonderful. The weather good and generally the companionship was good. How else can one visit Mont St Michel, the Bayeux Tapestry, Carcasonne, St Paul de Vence, Monte Carlo, stay in Nice for 3 days. However, it was soured by 52 people on the coach and one tour guide to...

This was the first ever coach tour we had taken. We wanted to see Europe, but with no real experience, we wanted to sample lots of places before comitting to a particular country or resort. This has proved to be a good choice as we saw so many things that it will take us years to visit all the...
