Frequently Asked Questions

Where will your Solwayconnections tour guide meet you and your group?

The time and location where your group will meet their tour guide will have been discussed as part of the tour booking process.  A suitable Solwayconnections guided tour itinerary for your group will have been devised from the agreed meeting location.

What sort of transport will we be in?

Solwayconnections tour guides work on a ‘guide only’ basis on guided tours.  Suitable transport can also be arranged for a group tour if required and this is charged at cost. In this instance a comfortable minibus or minicoach driven by a professionally trained driver will be used as transportation for the tour.

What do we do for our lunch?

Our day tours will take you to a local seaside or market town where there are a number of different cafes and food outlets which offer food suitable to meet the needs of different dietary requirements. You will have time to purchase your lunch and spend a little time exploring before your transport leaves to take you to your next heritage destination.

What should I wear?

Solwayconnections guided tours are designed to include visits to different heritage sites, gardens and natural sites. Some of the sites are a short walk away from the parking area and have a few steps at their entrance. Some of the footpaths at sites can also be a little uneven in places. We therefore advise people to wear outdoor shoes with soles that are suitable for walking on uneven surfaces. We suggest you also bring a waterproof jacket with you. During the summer months you may wish to wear your insect repellent when visiting natural habitats.

What about toilet facilities?

Different heritage sites and the lunch time venues for your tour have public toilet facilities.
