Myself and my husband are wanting to go to Lloret next year and are undecided wether to go with Siesta or WA Shearings, we have two children one aged 12 and one aged 2 we are interested in any comments and advise someone could give us regarding either of these companies, especially the overnight paris stay that Siesta offer
Thanks for your help..
I've only ever traveled with Siesta but we've done this 6 or 7 time now and each time we have done the Paris stop over which is amazing and it really breaks up the journey, plus I just love everything Disney.
The only thing I would say that if your doing the Disney stop over is pack a few things to eat into your over night bag as once you get there the restaurant is closed so you would need to go into the Disney Village and get something to eat or make sure you have something on the bus just before you arrive. There is a McDonalds there.
The next day after breakfast you make your own way to Disney land (there's a free bus every 12 mins outside the hotel) then make your way back to the bus at the time giving by the driver.
Once you're back on the bus you travel through the night to your destination and if you're anything like me I was that knackered I woke up just in time to change buses the following morning.
I couldn't fault Siesta as a bus company and now with the new entertainment system it's even better. Each person has their own headset (supplied by Siesta) and you can either listen to a dvd, or there's a selection of music and story channels for the kids. The foods great and the hosts are brilliant.
Sorry I can't compare them to WA Shearings but if I was going back again I would chose Siesta
Club C is always an option for you CM and they have had a year to sort the toilet on the bus.
There won't be a rush from me, Paradisio, so you are ok there!!
Harry Shaw? Aint seen them for ages, not since they stopped going to Castell Montgri. Sadly, they are (or at least were) another company that couldn't find Scotland on the map!
I don't know about other companies, but with Siesta a kid can be 19 before they have to pay adult fares so that should save a little.
Chip buttys, they don't do them now, to much mess, but you can't beat a bacon sarnie for breakfast
They still do a lot of regular stops en route to spain, even one about 3am for the smokers when they do a change over. I've never been more than 4 hours without at least a 5 min break. Actually thats a lie, coming back in May this year we had to go 5 1/2 hours as there was an accident on the motorway but you can't blame that on the coach company.
Take a pillow and your own food, its a long way but part of our holiday and you soon make friends with others.We leave our car, its a tenner for 7 or 14 nights, get to depot early and they park it around the back out of sight.
I see you sent me a PM about Ferris, but it doesn't really matter how cheap they are, if they don't cover my area of the UK, why should they get my cash? No ta, plus to be honest i wouldn't have travelled with a company that let people smoke onboard
