The trip package was beyond expectation. Some of us did not see the northern lights, still it was a wonderful experience. It was affordable I will strongly recommend to my friends. Our tour driver and tour director were wonderful as well!!!. Will surely book another trip with Cosmos.
I very much enjoyed the Northern Highlights and the Arctic Circle Tour. Over the course of two weeks, the tour itinerary covered over 3,000 miles of countryside and beautiful scenery in Norway and Finland. There are very few, if any, tours to this region that are as comprehensive. Our tour director Beatrix and our usdriver Jan, were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and professional. My fellow travelers on the tour (coming from Australia, New Zealand, and the USA) were very interesting and nice to get to know. I would like to take this tour again someday.
The trip was good but I might not book a trip with this Operator based on a little disappointment that they didn't give me 5% discount for repeat customer as they are advertising.
Beautiful trip in a beautiful country. There was a lot of time spent on the bus, but this was expected so it was not a surprise.
I would not recommend this tour unless you want to spend a lot of time traveling in the bus. Too many days were hotel, comfort stop, lunch stop, comfort stop and hotel with no interesting stops along the way. Some of the stops that were provided were very questionable as to why we even stopped there. The food provided was not that good and some of the hotels were not as described. Go with Globus and get better value for the tour cost!
I have used Affordabletours for a number of trips and I have always found their staff to be very cooperative and eager to assist in any way possible. All communications that I had with them, whether it be e-mails or phone calls that I made to them were quickly responded to. On my last two vacations/trips I dealt with Affordabletours and I am happy to report that I am very happy with the service they provided.
