Questions & Answers

Question: Are there age restrictions?

No age restrictions on Trafalgar tours but travelers do have to have to keep in mind that these are walking tours and they vary in level of intensity. Please let your travel consultant know of any special accommodations you may require before booking your trip. They will be able to suggest itineraries to fit your level of activity.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Thanks. Our trip ran smoothly.

By Abdul M on Jul 14, 2018

Accomodations were as expected but for the Sokos in Estonia.Very late check in.We were the last to get our room.Rooms were not ready at 2pm and were told ours would be at 3pm but this did not happen.Therefore,we had to proceed on the city tour without refreshing ourselves after hours on the road.The room was stuffy, the A.C. did not work properly,the wooden floor had many black scuff marks,the TV remote did not function as it should.We can go on.We rate this hotel a 2 star.Do not recommend it to anyone.We gave our assessment to Trafalgar.Hope they act positively.

The trip guide and driver are excellent, professional, and very helpful. Most local guides were very good, particularly the ones in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Minsk, Vilnius, and Riga.
