accomodations are uneven quality but I go-with-the-flow and like that the desk staff is very helpful to us Cosmosians!. as with last year's trip to Ireland arriving early in the morning on the international flight we could check in to the first night's hotel on both trips to get some sleep. that's worth the price of the trip. This cannot be expected or assumed but I believe Cosmos's connection to these sights is that powerful. I believe Affordable Tours' reputation is also a powerful connectionwhen making all travel plans
Very nice hotels but dindt like the bed accommodations with two beds being put together making uncomfortable to sleep with the beds separating apart while a sleep.
Stefania was very helpful and always returned my calls even on a weekend.
We had fun on the trip
The Spain And Portugal experience were great. Went to see places, that if we went on our own we would have missed them. The driver Oscar and the tour director Raquel were very good and of great help. This is my second trip with Cosmos and had a very good time. Thanks
The guide could have been better but the driver was fabulous and he's the most important guy! Some of the hotels were noisy due to tour groups. Wouldn't both doing the optional dinner tours again as l didn't think, the food was that good.
Tour Guide Julian, was exceptional! Knowledgeable, professional, courteous, caring, witty, funny. My first tour experience, unforgettable. The only way to visit a foreign country is to do a tour, not on your own. Viva Cosmos and Affordable Tours--BRAVO!!!
Tour guide was very knowledgeable, organized and personable.
Our tour director - was absolutely fantastic - we loved him and he did everything to help end explain. we had a lot of previous tours, but he was the best.
The arrangements, the tour director and the driver were excellent! The tour director was extremely knowledgeable and has the rare gift of making the passengers comfortable throughout the trip.
The tour director for my trip was very good.
