Portugal has always been on my bucket list for a very long time for its unique mix of old-world traditions – rich history, some of the best Portuguese cuisines and port wines from Duoro valley, historic monasteries, Douro River, palaces and castles. I could not have picked any other company to travel with than Tauck Tours. Tauck is one of the most luxurious company out there that is all inclusive, stays at 5 star boutique hotels, luxurious stops on trips, out of this world cuisines, excellent service, no extra cost on any optional excursions and my favorite slow paced tour that caters mainly to seniors. I can tell you that I am nowhere close to being a senior but it was nice to be treated like a VIP on a Tauck tour. Portugal with Tauck really delivered above and beyond my expectations.
Why Greece? And I replied, “Why not!” The history, beaches, and activities just to list a few. Why go on a tour and specifically a tour with Trafalgar? Simply, the ease of not having to plan anything, guided by an expert with over 10 years of experience, and the accommodation are first class. So let’s get straight to what I have experienced while Greek Island Hopper with Trafalgar tour.

Visiting Europe especially during the Holidays has always been on my bucket list. After checking what they had to offer; Delights of London and Paris with Trafalgar was the best option for my husband and me. Since the tour was at leisure, we only need to unpack twice. This fabulous tour consisted of 4 nights in London and 4 nights in Paris.
Visiting Greece and its islands has been on my bucket list. This summer, I was fortunate enough to cross that off by touring on the Greek Island Hopper with Trafalgar. This tour was right up my alley since it is at leisure pace, which allows for longer stays in each city and plenty of time on your own. The tour consisted of 2 nights in Athens, 3 in Mykonos, 3 in Santorini, and 1 last night back at Athens. I enjoyed that Trafalgar took care of all the logistics and included some meals while allowing us to explore local cuisines on our own.
My family has always wanted to visit Ireland to know our heritage better. We chose Focus on Ireland with Insight Vacations for a number of reasons. First, the extra legroom on the luxury motor coach would provide more comfort for my parents. Also, the itinerary hits much of southern Ireland’s biggest highlights within 7 days with many Relaxed Starts. Relaxed Starts are mornings where you don’t have to wake up extra early in the morning.
