By Lai Ying H on Dec 08, 2017

The unexpectedly excellent weather made our trip totally enjoyable. Our tour guide had been very nice and helpful.

By Rachel S on Nov 17, 2017

In some hotels, the drainage at the shower didn't work properly. Buffet dinners at the hotels were mediocre and lukewarm. Local specialists were mediocre. Not enough time spent in archaeological sites (but more than enough time for shopping). Half a day in Athens isn't sufficient. Optional events too expensive.

By William C on Sep 08, 2017

The only problem we had was that there was duplication from one tour to the other in which we paid for but did not use. We did not discover this until the last minute and wish it was brought to our attention at time of booking. We literally paid for 10 days and did not use 3 of them.

By Steven J on Sep 28, 2015

the night at the Delphi Palace was the low light, highly recommend change there.

By Lisa R on Aug 28, 2015

Thank you for such professional assistance.

By James H on May 08, 2015

The tour was very well organized. A real benefit was that Trafalgar provided transportation to/from the airport- get to have after a long flight. I will book them again.

By Daryl S on Jun 24, 2013

 I had a great time with Trafalgar Tours. It was a great learning and cultural experience.

By Nenita S on Jun 07, 2013

Some of the hotel rooms in Turkey are very warm; air conditioner not working properly. Our "Be My Guest Lunch" at Pergamon area was not sanitary and good at all. It was held at the homes of some of the villagers. It was in the open and flies are flying around.
