Questions & Answers

Question: What about Visa requirements for this tour? How do I book my RT flight?

Visas depends on your country of origin. US passport holders do not need visas to travel throughout in Europe. You can choose to book your round trip flights independently, through the tour operator, or through our third party air provider.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

I liked the Christmas markets but the smaller ones were less crowded the the city markets. Peter the tour guide was very knowledgeable and his driver was excellent

By mary d on Nov 26, 2018

There were two disappointments with the trip. One,, if you did not book the add on's we were on our own all day. Second, this was on a Sunday in Lucerne where everything is CLOSED. Discourage your customers from taking this trip when it ends up in Lucerne late on Saturday afternoon and you are there on Sunday. It is awful.

By Jean R on Nov 23, 2018

Kate was excellent tour director.

By Virginia C on Dec 01, 2017

I recommend that for each of the experts that took us on tours walking tours that they have a written copy of their comments that we could receive electronically. These people were exceptionally knowledgeable and I would have appreciated an electronic version of their talk. I was not the only one that was interested in having this done so I think Trafalgar would be smart to include this.

By Norman B on Dec 04, 2013

Hotels and meals were consistently better than on previous tours with Trafalgar, and were very good.
