This is the European Experience Summer by Cost Saver. It's a fast paced trip, most of our time were in the bus travelling to another city. We did not have a chance to enjoy the cities we went to because of limited time. This is just a glimpse of Europe so you have to go back again to enjoy Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Florence & Venice. The hotels are okay for this cost saver trip except the hotel in Venice, Villa Giulietta is the worst hotel I'd been to. The room was small for 2 people. The shower room is standing type and you could hardly move. The drainage is clogged and the water went up to the floor. Very basic with no tissue paper. The carpet is so dirty and stinks. Breakfast served was no good. I hope that Trafalgar will not contract with them anymore. Optional excursion was okay but pricey. I'd would like to suggest to include the trip to Versailles as one of the excursions in Paris rather than Moulin Rouge Cabaret. Our tour director, Evana and driver Wim are excellent. She is very knowledgeable and takes care of our needs. She gives us treats and souvenirs. We had fun with them.
