Trena booked us back to back Globus trips with airfare between both trips. As always she did a great job.

Our Guide Raja was just marvelous. She was quite knowledgeable.

Good value. Good Tour Director and Bus Driver. Included meals were good. Accommodations were very good with the exception of the Hotel Ellington. For a 6 day tour the bus time was too long.

It was worth of money, esp with air free- and 2 dinners with=all you can drink-vine- exciting optional trips with views to EZE parfum factory and mediaval art village stPaul de Vence.Only thing I disliked was that sightseeing tour of Paris was only through bus -window and local tour guide didn't stop for us to take pictures--esp of Arc de Triomphe.Also I would like to know before next tour how many singles are in tour travelling solo-as there were only 2 of us-others had companions.

Had a great experience from booking to touring. The only hotel I didn't like was the Ellington in Nice. Small lobby. There was a private booking for another group and clearly not enough space. Much older hotel. After staying at the Mercure and the Novotel were dissapointed.

You forgot to say how wonderful people have found your excursions...How about a trip that covers just the south of France...
