By KRISTIN E on Jun 10, 2019

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional. She kept us going all day non-stop seeing everything we could in each country. If something was closed our we had extra time she would alter the schedule to fill out day with all the sites we could see in each country. The tour bus was clean and comfortable. It also had WIFI, but it limited you to 80mbps in 48 hours, so it basically was only good to send text messages for check your email for a few minutes; couldnt upload videos. The WIFI didnt work in Switzerland at all on the bus. Hotels were a huge disappointment. They were located outside each city and not within walking distance to anything. If you wanted to explore on your free time you had to take a taxi or public transportation. For example; the hotel in Amsterdam was 30 euros to the center of the city each way. The hotels were also old and dated but clean.

By Jennifer W on Jun 30, 2018

This trip involves a lot of time on a bus. Looking at a map, a traveler can see there are more than a few miles between the town's featured on this trip. But maybe, they should have it pointed out to them that more than a few hours are going to be spent on a bus, with quick stops in between, before the next destination. I think most everyone on my trip complained about the travel time between hotels. On a more specific note, the Hotel Europe in Lucerne wasn't air conditioned. The view and location were spectacular, but that didn't keep me cool at night.

By Zena J on Jun 23, 2018

I had a wonderful trip and learned a lot about the history of countries that we visited. Thanks!

By Sharon M on Dec 28, 2016

We loved this trip. We love using Trafalgar because the tour directors are great, the itinerary is well planned out, and they have experiences that are unique, like taking a ride on a horse-drawn wagon (the horse had jingle bells on) through a small town and stopping for pictures on a beautiful little bridge, and then the owner of the horses taking us to his home and providing us with a homemade lunch.

By Linda T on Nov 25, 2016

The Trafalgar tour guide wasn\'t good as those we had in the past. The itinerary was a bit rushed, covering too great a distance in a short time.

By Sharlene O on Oct 30, 2015

Travel Director is very knowledgeable and respectful. Couch Driver is a good and safe driver.

By Thomas W on Sep 02, 2013

Hotels were excellent but not all close to city center. The tour guide was professional and very knowledgeable. Trip was excellent overall.
