Friendly, helpful, stress free

On a coach for a long time

I think I need to start this review with a little about me... indulge me, the point will soon become clear! I'm not a flier. I can tolerate it, but I don't like it. My girlfriend is absolutely petrified of it so a road-going holiday is necessary. I'm also a high mileage driver so sitting in a...

“Christmas Break”

published 15/05/2003

Cost, social, convenient pick-ups

slowish travel / long journeys

We used Shearings for the first time in December 2002 to go to the snow for Christmas. Two years earlier we had been on a similar holiday with another company. We chose the Shearings holiday from their brochure on the grounds of length of holiday available, destination and description of...

Let me start by saying that I LOVE coach holidays!! I first travelled with Shearings (they've now merged with Wallace Arnold) with my parents when I was 13. We went to Lido Di Jesolo in Italy. I'm now 36 and have been to Spain, Italy, Slovenia and Poland with Shearings (in 3 weeks I'm off to...

We wanted a break in spring and we saw an advert for a Shearings holiday for 5 days for the incredible sum of £99 for Bed breakfast and evening meal. This also covered transport from Yorkshire to the Highlands of Scotland and two coach trips while we were there. We thought "This is too good to be...

Everything relating to Shearings holidays.

Reviewers have complained about the long travelling times on Shearings coaches and here is the reason. Shearings Coach Depots (in our case Normanton in Yorkshire) have a closed barrier across the entrance until 4.30 pm and coaches are not allowed in, regardless of how near the holiday destination...

August 2007 Holiday with WA Shearings to Sorrento and Amalfi Coast Italy. Using the Grand Tourer Service. August 2007. Decided on this type of holiday as my wife had taken a dislike to flying! This seemed the best option of a holiday abroad, in the sun. This particular tour offered a 6 night stay...

Can I say that I treated this trip with some sceptisism. A coach from the UK to explore Italy seemed a long journey with boredom a constant threat. What a joy to be proven totally wrong. The journey to and from seemed to race by. Great commentries from the drivers, lots of advice on what to do and not to do. If you need to see Italy in an abreaviated fashion then this has to be the trip especially in their luxury coaches. Every whim or complaints were treated equaly and with promptness. Full marks to Shearings for a great Italian holiday

Went to Croatia with WAShearings in September 2007. The Grand Tourer coach was great, plenty of legroom and more room between the two seats. The hotels were all of a good standard, the food sometimes predictable, sometimes tasty. As usual the days were long and northern France boring and Germany beset by traffic delays. The disadvantage . . . our driver/courier was OK as a driver but rubbish as a courier. Very disorganised. The coach started dirty and at the end of the fortnight was very dirty. The GPS was "programmed incorrectly" and the CDs did not work after a local guide stopped them to play some local music. He had to be reminded to switch the water on for the drinks, and that was after he had persuaded us to keep HIM plied with coffee. He was also very good at not telling groups of people what next day's times were.!

My Husband and I booked to go to the Royal Esplanade in Ryde, Isle of Wight the week before Christmas. Living in Poole Dorset we thought it wasn't far to go as we can see the IOW from home. It took us 8 1/2 hours to get there as they first take you to London Gateway then down to Portsmouth a total of 215 miles. It is 56 miles from Poole to Portsmouth. The return journey was going to be approx 10 hours. People returning to Yorkshire had less travelling time of 8 hours. Shearings seem to beleive that people enjoy the coach journey, well people I've spoken to only enjoy what is necessary not the extra miles added on for no good reason .

Everything - especially the staff!!!

We booked a LLandudno weekend with WA Shearings and it was appalling as was the coach driver, who was Welsh and was the most unhelpful, sarcastic person I have ever met. We left Yorkshire at 10am and got to LLandudno at 4pm! So much for a weekend as we left at 9am the next morning! Stops in...

“OUR EURO HOLIDAY SUMMER 2007”

published 08/06/2007

EASE OF TRAVEL AND MOST MEALS CATERED

CAN'T THINK OF ANY!

We returned from our trip to Tuscany just over a week ago. It was magical - I cannot praise Shearings too highly for making the experience so memorable. We flew from the USA and joined my son in the UK who had booked the holiday via Uniglobe Gemini Travel, Ashford, Middlesex, UK. From start to...

“French Idle”

The air conditioning on the coach worked

Our main hotel was on an industrial estate

The tour was called Enchanting Brittany so we were looking forward to revisiting this lovely region. We did not expect to spend 5 nights on an industrial estate. The hotel was very nice but on a busy industrial estate roundabout. Sadly we were looking forward to evening strolls and sea views but...

“Shearings Tarbet Hotel”

Got to see alot of Scotland

Poor customer service, uncomfortable seating.

Shearings have there good and bad points. First the bad. Don't book with Shearings if you want to go on holiday on a specific date. I booked a 5 day holiday to the Tarbet hotel in Scotland in February for the 21st of July for our silver wedding which was on the 23rd. I paid in full 8 weeks before...
