    Hi!

    I'm helping a friend of mine who has an English exam next Monday and we have problems with this sentence.

    The question is: Choose the best sentence which is grammatically correct:

    And they give four options:

    - There is a day travel which includes a tour to the cathedral as well as a visit to the castle.
    - There is a day journey which includes a travel to the cathedral as well as a visit to the castle.
    - There is a day trip which includes a journey at the cathedral as well as a visit to the castle.
    - There is a day tour which includes a trip to the cathedral as well as a visit to the castle.

    I have doubts between the third and the fourth one...

    Thanks in advance!

    Only the fourth option works for me here.
    The third option doesn't work because we cannot say "a journey at the cathedral."

    Clearly this is an exercise in prepositions as well as the differences between "travel", "journey", "trip" and "tour".
