Hello McGill (sorry, don't know your first name). How long and bearable was the coach journey at its longest point - ie to Switzerland? What was the coach like? How many seats? I can't find on the Phoenix Holidays website any explanation about their coaches. Thank you. Gail. 6th March 2009.

It was about a nine hour trip from switzerland to the port at amsterdam, we had plenty of comfort stops though, the coaches were comfortable enough and were about a 50 odd seater.We left from Arbroath in scotland and travelled to Newcastle for the ferry.The pick up times between stops were far too generous as they gave 45mins to travel 15miles ( this may now be resolved as it was the first trip) Maybe they thought Scotland has a traffic problem like London!! We felt that the trip to Interlaken, Lucerne was a bit long but that was a personal opinion.The trip to Strasbourg was very good and dont miss Petite France as its lovely. Hope you enjoy your Trip if you go,regards Pat.

Yes i'd book a cabin for the ferry but be aware that they are bunk beds in inside cabins,one of our party fell off on way out so took mattress on to the floor returning. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms.Only one of the beds will be suitable but it may still be touch and go as my husband is only 5'9, hope this helps.
