Excellent Tour Director and Driver. Fascinating Tour. I thought there were too many "Optional" tours (we did all of them - @$840 extra for the two of us). Some of these should have been included in the regular tour, even if it meant raising the price. Also, there were 47 people on the tour, which I think is too many.

By Diane W on Aug 09, 2018

Our TD, Marina, was exceptionally good.

By William K on Jun 16, 2016

Trafalgar tends to book rooms away from city centers which lack amenities I value, Such as the ability to walk to city centers, a gym, onsite laundry and air conditioning that is controllable from the room.

By Kurt B on Sep 11, 2015

The tour went pretty well. Trafalgar is well organized. We had some minor quibbles but who doesn't.
