2013

Great Quality – Great Prices


A WELCOME NOTE FROM NEIL & PATRICIA We’d like to extend the warmest of welcomes to everyone thinking of joining us in 2013. Inside our brochure you’ll find the usual variety of holidays to suit a wide range of tastes and budgets. Like everyone else, we’re very aware of the current economic climate, and with that in mind have decided to increase the selection of short breaks, local gems and day trips on offer. Last year these all proved to be extremely popular and exceptionally good value for money. We offer quality holidays to a host of popular destinations across the UK and Ireland and we’re sure you’ll find something to suit you. You can look forward to comfortable accommodation, hearty breakfasts and menus which hopefully satisfy even the healthiest of holiday appetites. Our extended tours include a selection of day trips to places we think will be of interest to you, and in some cases we have included the attraction entrance fee. We believe your holiday starts from the moment you board the coach. Once your luggage is loaded on at your pick up point, you can sit back and relax in the knowledge that you won’t see it again until you arrive at the hotel. That leaves you free to enjoy the ferry crossings with no cases to worry about. Our coaches take you all the way to your destination, driving on and off the ferry with you on board and your seats are reserved for the duration of your holiday. Each journey is carefully planned to allow ample comfort stops and a sufficient lunch time break. Our friendly and courteous drivers are totally committed to ensuring that you enjoy your holiday and are always on hand to assist with any queries or difficulties you may have. We are dedicated to providing a friendly, courteous and professional service from the moment you make your first enquiry. We pride ourselves on offering the personal touch, as only a family business can, so if you have any special requirements please don’t hesitate to talk them through with us. If you would like more information on any of the tours, just phone or email us and we will be happy to forward the details. All the team at Giles Tours are looking forward to the year ahead. We would like to thank our many regular clients for their loyalty and support over the years, and extend a very warm welcome to anyone thinking of travelling with us for the first time. We wish you all a Happy and Healthy 2013. Neil & Patricia Giles Copies of our Fair Trading Agreement, Hotel Brochures and detailed Itineraries are available on request. (Itineraries are subject to change without notice if thought to be in the best interests of our clients.) All details are correct at time of going to print. However, all tours are planned in advance so there may be times when information supplied is no longer accurate. Giles Tours comply with package tour regulations for the protection of customer repayments. All such monies will be deposited in a secure “Trustee Account” controlled by independent trustees who are professional people accepting the obligation for controlling this account in the interests of our customers.
