Our agent was always courteous when we spoke over the phone... He answered all our questions and explained them to us, gave us options and even found different tours to compare with to take to make sure we chose the right one for us. He even returned calls on his days off to make sure we had all the right answers to our question.

This was our first time travelling abroad, and everything from hotel reservations to touring with our guide were hassle free. Our tour guide from Cosmos was the best; motor coach(s) were clean and our ride to destinations was comfortable, and our driver drove with skill and care. All in all, our agent was so very helpful in every way answering my many questions.

THE ONLY THING I WOULD RECOMMEND IS COSMOS OFFERING WATER OR SOME TYPE OF DRINK TO THE PEOPLE ON THE BUS AT REST STOP. THE COST OF DRINKS IN EUROPE WERE VERY EXPENSIVE. I ENJOYED THE TRIP. IT WAS LOTS OF FUN. WE HAD A GREAT GROUP OF PEOPLE ON OUR BUS WHICH IS ALWAYS GOOD. BUT EUROPE CAN'T TOUCH THE FOOD IN THE U.S.A. THOSE BOYS NEED TO TAKE LESSON HOW TO COOK FROM US.

I am aware that this is a walking tour, however, it would be nice and if possible that the bus driver could drop the tourists close to the place for the tour. This trip was really hard to a lot of people since we had to walk miles from one point to the other.
