Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
The only complaint I have is about the Hilton garden inn in Denver. Globus should think about changing this hotel. The staff was kind and courteous but clueless about the fact that we had a tour starting there. The bar was totally under stocked. They may as well have closed it
A few things happened that hurt the trip, but they did not ruin it. Bus breakdowns should not happen and if they do a backup should be readily available.
This was my first experience w both Affordable Tours and Globus....Great Trip and no complaints
The package as described did not live up to its expectation. Tour director was too inexperienced.
