    I particularly liked the way all were treated well. We had two with difficulty getting on the bus and one with a walker. While I’m certainly not recommending challenged passengers attempt this trip it was the good humour with which it was handled that made for a happy group. Most of the hotels were excellent, the dinners not always good, the picnic great fun and the mostly Back Roads appreciated. For me Dinan was far too quick, as was Laval - both in France.
