It was a tremendous help to us to book our flight through Trafalgar with the convenience of airport to hotel and back transport.

By Mary S on Aug 22, 2015

This trip, including the optional experiences I selected, gave me a full spectrum of country panoramas, foods & cultural shows, castles, cathedrals, palaces & pubs, ferries & cruises, history & fun wanderings. It included the famous Military Tatoo at Edinburgh Castle which was a wonderful & unforgettable experience too. This is the best trip I have ever taken. Tour Director was a very caring, organized, fun professional who taught us much. Many thanks.

We have returned from our trip; our third with Trafalgar through Affordable Tours. We had a great trip with only two minor glitches; which can be expected. The Tour Directors are excellent planners and provided excellent excursion which adds to the overall tour.

By Karen W on Sep 10, 2013

Yes I would definetly book with Affordable Tours and Trafalgar Tours again. Thanks again, our trip was Fantastic, with no problems. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, and took care of all our needs promptly. Well done!!

By Vickie G on Jun 03, 2013

We just returned from our first Trafalgar tour, and we are happy to recommend Affordable Tours and Trafalgar Tours. We have used another top name tour company several times, but they were completely booked for the 2013 British Isles, so we went with Trafalgar since we had seen their buses around Europe before. We were so happy with the tour and with Trafalgar. Our tour director was the best we have ever had, the coach was comfortable, and the hotels for the most part were located in city centers. We highly recommend Trafalgar, and we found Affordable Tours to be very helpful and professional.
