Globus is a first class operater. This tour was well planned and executed. The hotels, resturants and excursions were very good.

I have used Affordable Tours for my last 3 tours. They do an awesome job and the travel consultants are extremely professional and helpful.

The Tour guide Paul was very experienced and knowledgeable throughout the trip. The Motor-coach was very comfortable and the driver, Lorenzo was very good. The wifi on board was spotty at best and not consistent. Simply unreliable. The accommodation were the worst. It was a triple room as requested, However, the third bed was mostly uncomfortable. The worst experience was that the air condition was very poor, non functioning (@ Wiesbaden), or not available at all (@ Lucerne) except in one hotel at NH Salzburg, that for once worked properly. First impressions re important, and recommend that Globus find an alternative hotel to use than the Apollo Ramada in Amsterdam. The AC did not work at first. Temperature in the room 26.5 Celsius. Not very responsive to our calls to have someone look into it. Finally the front desk clerk came to check and try to fix it at 10 pm, with no great success. Was able to cool it down a couple of degrees at night, but was back again back to 26.5 C. Next day contacted the front desk, without any success. Had to go to the lobby to talk to the supervisor, with limited success. Dann, the supervisor admitted that their ac units are poor and not up to par. Could not send a tech until during the course of the week, and all he could offer was to offer to change room at 10 pm-- when we had to get ready to leave at 6 am). That was a very frustrating first impression. At arrival at Nassauf Hof in Wiesbaden, when we get to our room we come across that the ac was not working at all. Contacted the front desk, and found out that the ac units through out all the rooms were non functioning. Only offered a small ceiling fan. It was another hot an miserable night. The hotel offered in Lucerne, Europe, for 2 nights was night, didn't offer ac at all. Once more, the only hotel that offered proper functioning ac was at the NH in Salzburg-- 1 of 8 nights.

Loved our Globus tour director, Pasquale.

The tour director (Samona) and driver (Pasquale)were wonderful. She was informative & knowledgeable about all the places we visited, which helped us be prepared. The driver was courteous, cautious & made us all feel safe. Our trip experience was definitely better because of their service.

This was a wonderful trip. The tour director was exceptional. Saw and did so many things. Loved it all.

One of the best vacations we have ever taken. Had a wonderful experience. Globus is a first rate company and delivered on every thing they promised. Our tour guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and prepared us for what we were going to experience. She made changes due to weather, celebrations (Bastille Day), and a terrorist incident in France. With all of these changes she delivered the experience we were promised and more. I would tavel with her any time and any where. Our driver was great - always felt comfortable with him at the wheel in any traffic or on any road.

Had never taken a TOUR, it was great better that I expected, had a wonderful time.

very disappointed that the bathroom on the bus was not really available for use. Since it was not abnormal bathroom usually found on charter buses This issue was really disappointing. Also the hotel in London was not in a centrally located area it was very far from major attractions it was in a mid eastern neighborhood

My husband and I had a wonderful vacation. It was everything that I expected and more. We had a good group of people to share this experience with and we had fun. Our driver was the best, he is a good driver., our tour dir. Was very kind, considerate and accommodating, this made our trip even better. Thanks a bunch globes.

Great service, looking to book a Mediteranean cruise next!
