I've been on several Trafalgar tours but this was my least favorite, not with the destination but with the description of what we would see. There were too many optional tours offered that some of them should have been included with the itinerary. Not sure I'll travel with Trafalgar again or not.

By Patrick H on Sep 16, 2018

Our second trip with Trafalgar. If we decide on another tour in the future it will be with Trafalgar.
