By Sofiya Z on Feb 12, 2017

The trip was about nature and history. It lacked any mention of art - at the least, architecture and sculpture. It would benefit if those topics were included.

By Maryellen D on Feb 05, 2017

The tour was spectacular. The Cooper Canyon was awesome and unbelievable. Our tour guide was well-experienced and knowledgeable. Our accommodations were the best. The local foods that we ate were very delicious.

By Dina B on Jan 28, 2017

Trafalgar is an excellent choice for traveling. I already did 2 European tours with them in 6 months and booked my third tour. They are professional and efficient. Traveling with Trafalgar saves time and money. The local experiences they provide make all the difference.

By Diana B on Jan 10, 2017

The tour was with AATKings/Trafalgar Tours. The Guide, Driver, Hotels, Meals, Tours were all excellent and I had a great time. Thanks!

By Ronnette B on Jan 07, 2017

The itinerary was absolutely within my expectations.

By Analisa J on Jan 06, 2017

Our travel consultant did an excellent job booking our trip. The flight, airport transfer, and the tour itself was far beyond our expectations.

By Dennis B on Jan 01, 2017

Everything that was stated came true but it was even better then what I expected.

By Sharon M on Dec 28, 2016

We loved this trip. We love using Trafalgar because the tour directors are great, the itinerary is well planned out, and they have experiences that are unique, like taking a ride on a horse-drawn wagon (the horse had jingle bells on) through a small town and stopping for pictures on a beautiful little bridge, and then the owner of the horses taking us to his home and providing us with a homemade lunch.

By Ben T on Dec 25, 2016

Everything was great in my trip to New Zealand's southern island, the scenery was certainly stunning! I had a good time, all the fellow travelers in the tour was very nice and friendly, and I have found some new friends there! New Zealand is a new country where air is very clean and people are honest and trustworthy welcoming tourists as well as foreigners with open arms. Next time I'd like to go back and see the Northern island of the country.

By Paul B on Dec 24, 2016

It's a trip worth taking, but not at all up to the descriptions provided by most travelers. So don't think your socks are going to get knocked off by the scenery seen from the train or the dizzying bridge heights. Maybe I'm jaded because I live in Wash. State and I've taken the Empire Builder (Amtrak) & the Rocky Mountaineer (Canada Rail). So, this trip had some "nice" scenery, and it was interesting to do some real switchbacks, but as for the train portion overall: "meh". Hard to get good camera shots if not on right side of train or unless you camped out (to the detriment of others) on the right side of the in-between sections of the train cars. The train condition was good, the restrooms were clean, and the food was OK. The accommodations on the trip were nice to very-nice, as was the food. You have to realize this is Mexico however -- if you're expecting USA quality throughout then you're going to be one of the complainers the rest of us have to put up with. The hotel on the rim of the canyon was especially nice, with incredible views. The tram ride (into the canyon) was also very scenic. Between the two, it made the trip very worthwhile. The Casas Grandes (Paquime) stop was also very interesting if you like archaeological stuff. Those two things (the canyon stay) & Paquime were kinda the only two things worth seeing on the trip. Not that the rest of it wasn't worth seeing at all -- it was. But those were really the only two stops of significance in my opinion. I'm glad I crossed this trip off my list, but I would not do it again nor recommend it except with the above caveats. This was my first trip with Trafalgar (I've done many other bus tours with other companies). I would recommend them, putting them on the same level as Globus.

By James W on Dec 23, 2016

Truly professional Tour Director and drivers made the tour memorable. Trafalgar always arrange first class hotel rooms.

By Linda T on Nov 25, 2016

The Trafalgar tour guide wasn\'t good as those we had in the past. The itinerary was a bit rushed, covering too great a distance in a short time.

By Randall B on Nov 22, 2016

I thought both Affordable Tours and Trafalgar did a great job. Would definitely travel with Trafalgar again and would definitely use Affordable Tours again.

By Catherine C on Nov 06, 2016

It was an awesome, organized, educational and a fun trip from Trafalgar. Folks were great. Thank you to our travel director who took care of the group\'s need and our driver for keeping us safe. It went beyond my expectation. Thank you!

By Carmen F on Oct 22, 2016

Just got back home from my 2016 Splendors of Italy vacations (10/22-11/03). The Travel Director was absolutely amazing, as well as our driver. They did everything to make our vacation an unforgettable experience. All local guides were excellent and very attentive. They took care of every detail so we just had to enjoy every second in Italy.
