Fantastic trip. Trafalgar tour guide was amazing! Trip was fantastic. We loved everything about it

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 Catherine P on Nov 13, 2015

The agent was very helpful in helping to book this trip. She was courteous, efficient and professional.

By Freddie C on Sep 24, 2015

I felt that there were too many optional tours. I think some of the options should have been included in the price that we paid. I can understand paying for the optionals in Venice because of the high cost of doing business there; however, at some of the other cities that we visited there was nothing to do if you don't pay for the optionals.

By Marybeth N on Apr 25, 2014

Everything about the trip exceeded my expectations!
