Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
Cosmos gets the right blend of travel experience and service for the cost. When hotels are more remotely located there is effort to support individual arrangements during free time .....or to use better quality hotels in suburban locations when the travel itinerary does not need activity to be urban based for the night of stay.
Some hotels where great, but some were below expectations.Some hotels were far from destination without a convenient way to get there.
I think Cosmos tries to have a good product but to keep the price low they kind of put you in a position where you have to buy their optional tours or you are just stuck in town that you know nothing about and you waist a day of your tour. That is my only complaint against them.
