Being a solo traveler, it was very comforting to have the Tour Director "suddenly" show up after our local tour guides had finished our tour. Being delayed by customs cause me to miss my hotel transfer at the allotted time and I missed the evening activities. Fortunately my Tour Director made it possible for me to join another group the next day on my free evening. I appreciated that opportunity and felt that I had not missed a whole lot of my trip because of my delayed arrival.
The hotels exceeded our expectations for quality and location. Much better than previous Italy tour.
The tour guides are very knowledgeable. They really try very hard to make the tour smooth and happy for everyone. At Le Meridien Etoile, WiFi is free at the lobby. It costs $15 euro per day if you want to use at the room. It's too expensive for the short time we stayed at our room and too inconvenient to go to the lobby after we retired to our room.
The guides were knowledgeable and very accommodating. They answered all questions and worked diligently to make our trip special.
This was our first trip with your company and we had an excellent experience. My family and I enjoyed the trip very much and so did our friends which booked the same trip along with us. Looking forward to our next trip with your company.
The planning was great. We had great tour guides and we were afforded the opportunity to see so many sites. The entire tour was well planned giving us the opportunity to have free time to venture on our own. Our director was the greatest, so accommodating and patient. We had a great group touring with us; we became a family, looking out for each other.
We were very pleased with the trip accommodations as well as the sightseeing excursions. Globus did a great job and our guide was exceptional.
Primera vez que viajo con Globus y fue una experiencia muy satisfactoria. Quede muy complacida con el servicio, que en el futuro viajare nuevamente con esta compania y la recomendare a mis amistades. El Tour director es una persona muy experta en su oficio y fue mas alla de mis expectaciones.
This was a wonderful trip from start to finish. Everything was handled like a well oiled machine. The hotel, meals and excursions surpassed what we thought we would receive. Thank You Affortable Tours and Globus for a great and awesome vacation.
I think everything about our trip was wonderful
Base price was low. Excursions added to the cost but were worthwhile. Overall, value was very good, even when the cost of excursions was considered. I liked the idea of spending three nights in London and three in Paris. This gave us a better chance to get to know the cities. We have been on other tours where much time is spent packing and unpacking and bus riding.
It's simple: You refer your friends, family, and anyone to us and when they book you will receive an American Express gift card worth up to $200 in the mail for simply referring.Read More
