I've been traveling with Cosmos since 2005 & have never had a bad trip with them!! They are very reliable, from the start of a trip, meeting your transfer agent @ the arrival airport, to the end of the trip, being transferred back, to the departure airport!! All hotels & included meals are excellent quality, as well as the included tours, tour guides, & Cosmos bus drivers!!

I have been with several Cosmos tours and will continue with Cosmos.

So far I've traveled with Cosmos 18 times!! That should say something!!

The experience with Affordabletours is amazing. It was more than it was as advertised. The guide is superb with her knowledge, courtesy and make the trip very interesting and valuable. The driver was so professional and very good that our trip was smooth and convenient. Next year, 2024 I look forward to book again with them and make referrals. Great company that you can trust.

Everything was great! Our tour guide and driver were top notch! Very knowledgeable and professional. Would definitely travel with Cosmos again!

My trip was great! Cosmos provided a great experience and I saw so much over the last two weeks! Very happy with the experience and what i paid for!

Great experience! Tour driver and guides are very professional, efficient, accommodating, and friendly. Visited places as advertised.

Very organized and when adjustments are needed all necessary arrangements are made. Well-educated and courteous tour guide and expert bus driver

Trip of a lifetime! Cosmos provides excellent service from the moment they pick you up at the airport until they drop you off when the tour is over. Their guides are professional, knowledgeable and extremely personable. I have booked cosmos tours four times and never been disappointed.

Affordable Tours has and will be our tour company in the future. 

I have taken about 18 wonderful tours with Cosmos. I am sold on Cosmos!

Excellent itinerary that matched the description. Knowledgeable, helpful, patient & courteous tour director, competent driver. Coach had ample leg room. Most hotel rooms were better than expected for this discount tour operator.

As always, COSMOS provided top level of service. Thank you

Our accommodations were above our expectations... the tour director was outstanding... very enjoyable vacation
