By Nicholas G on Sep 15, 2018

There were two departures from the published itinerary, including a walking tour of "hidden Paris," with a local specialist. Everyone was annoyed by this. No actual substitution was made, and there was almost no apology. Toward the end, for some reason, a couple of offerings published in the itinerary were moved from one day to another, making for one 12 hour day. Not easy. Additionally, this Trafalgar tour guide did the bare minimum. Some felt he was passive aggressive. In my opinion, either he was too laid back or negligent. Could not be sure which. In either case, he did the bare minimum to see to our comfort and pleasure.

By ESTEE N on Sep 01, 2018

They didn't pick me up from airport, I had to pay for taxi, hotels war 3 star motels , very small and clean . Didn't include museums , it was all day driving in the city. Tour guide want knowledgeable and couldn't answer all questions that we had. I didn't feel that tour package was worth it . It was bad service overall.

By LuAnn B on Jul 07, 2018

Our Tour Guide Bruno was outstanding and exceeded our expectations. He had a great sense of humor and very attentive to the needs of the groupd.

By Joy M on Jun 09, 2018

The Wonderful France trip my wife and I took was really WONDERFUL! We enjoyed every minute of it. Everything was perfectly planned and well organized. The Tour Director was exceptionally knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. We both enjoyed the trip very well.

By Patricia Nicole O on Apr 14, 2018

My husband and I appreciated the vast amount of places we were able to go to and see within the 8 days of this tour. Although there was a lot of traveling by bus, it was relatively comfortable and allowed us to visit more places than we would have been able to see on our own. This was a moderately paced tour that allowed for some leisure time on our own. We appreciated the priority access to certain sites because it was part of a tour, allowing us to skip long lines. Some of the hotels were a bit far from shops and sights, so one recommendation would be to place more of the hotels closer to the city. I would definitely recommend this trip to those who want to see more of France outside of Paris in an organized and pre-planned tour.

By Sydney P on Jul 29, 2017

The itinerary for Traflagar's Wonderful France was most interesting. The Tour Director and Local Specialists were excellent. I enjoyed the bus trip very much. The 'Be my Guest' experience was exceptional.
