Our European trip was fantastic. Our travel guide was so knowledgeable about each area we visited. The restaurants he chose were outstanding. I will be booking my third tour with Trafalgar, probably in September. My plan is to visit England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and perhaps then go to Eastern Europe.
