The tour of Italy that we took with Trafalgar was amazing. In 2 weeks, we saw virtually the entire country. Our Trafalgar tour manager made the whole experience both informative and relaxing. The tour, with her direction, encompassed all major attractions, but, more importantly, lesser known or visited sites that made for a perfect overview of the country.

I had never taken a tour before, and was extremely leery of the outcome. After that being said, this was the most amazing trip ever, my husband for our first vacation ever did not have to plan. Map will drive. It was all taken care of for us every movement every meal. Of course you had choices we chose to go with our tour guide and do what she wanted us to do its our country. I will always use a tour company and affordable tours may be correct decision on the company that I was looking for based off of what I told her I was looking for job well done guys

Extremely pleased with the quality of the entire tour. This included the tour director, bus driver, walking tour experts, most hotels, meals, optional tours, etc.

A little too much shopping for me, but overall the Trafalgar trip to Italy was great.

The Best of Italy tour was amazing. We saw so much and learned so much not only from our guide as we were moving from place to place, but also from the local specialists that provided tours in various cities. The food was amazing as were all our fellow travelers.

Italy is a beautiful country!! It was well planned and we seen a lot. We would never see, what we did, on our own. We met wonderful people on our tour and enjoyed getting to know them. Trafalgar is great.! This was my 7 trip with them. They even gave me a gift for coming on this tour.

Autumn Cruse was terrific! She was professional and communicated faithfully.

We love having you book us with Trafalgar, you beat their price and have found us additional discounts. We will definitely use you again. Trafalgar's drivers, guides and accommodations are first class. Plus they line up best experiences for us.

Everything about the trip was great! But my tour director Pat made the trip perfect. She went beyond being helpful. She has a great personality and makes you feel like a good friend. I would hope to request her for our next trip.

Excellent experience all the way around!

First trip with Trafalgar and it won't be the last. There were some challenges with accommodations I assume related to COVID but nothing major and I don't fault Trafalgar at all. Our tour staff was outstanding!

Trafalgar company was very organized. All tours and optional experiences were wonderful. Hotel choices were excellent. Memorable time had by everyone on the Best of Italy tour. Even had a wellness director to help with cleaning the tour bus each evening and making sure all of the guests sanitized after every excursion. In the end only 1 out of 32 people tested positive for Covid and the tour director stayed in town to check on the guest and make sure she was cared for after the tour ended. Would definitely go on another trafalgar tour.

We highly recommend Trafalgar's Best of Italy tour!!! It was was outstanding. From our knowledgeable and experienced tour director, Sasha, to the experienced driver, Salvatore, to the caring wellness director, Ruie, all went far beyond expectations. At the end of the trip, Trafalgar through our wellness director, brought in a doctor to our hotel to administer our required Covid tests for our return flights to the USA. Our group had 100% negative results for Covid! Throughout the trip, Trafalgar ensured that we had only the best and Sasha was extremely flexible to ensure that we experienced the BEST of Italy.

Trafalgar's team was exceptional. We had a safe, fun, insightful, and entertaining tour.

Trafalgar tours is an excellent company. The tours and people are great and they handle everything. You can never see so much or learn so much on your own.

This is our second trip with Trafalgar and we are indeed pleased with the wonderful and memorable experiences they have given us . They do plan their itinerary in a very thoughtful and comprehensive way so as to offer the travelers a meaningful and unique experience which they may not be able to do on their own.

It was a wonderful well organized trip with an extremely knowledgeable tour guide

Our tour director was the perfect person to introduce us to Italy. Gianmarco is a native Roman with extensive knowledge about the culture and history of Italy and shared with us many interesting facts and stories. He was kind, considerate, professional, and personable. We had a wonderful time touring the country.

Lidia our travel director was the best! She was very polite, a great leader, very professional, friendly, very smart, willing to help, funny and always making sure my family and kids are always doing ok. Our flight got delayed when we arrived in Rome, therefore, we missed the Welcome Dinner. To my surprise, when i checked in our hotel, Lidia walked in and introduced herself. After a few minutes, she took us to the local restaurant to have dinner. My wife and I didn't expect her there on that late evening but she was there. Because of the kind gesture she showed us, we will NEVER forget her for that. if it wasn't for her, my wife, my 2 kids and myself would be have been hungry that evening. I would most definitely recommend Trafalgar Tours to my friends and family members. Lidia and our driver Maurizio were both great! They were a perfect combination. Thank you both for your professionalism and job well done. We really appreciate you both. they both made this trip very easy, relaxing, enjoyable and stress free.

Our tour tour director, Dominic, was the best we have ever experienced.

Highly recommend the Best of Italy tour.

This was my second trip to Italy, and I saw and experienced so much more. The itinerary was sometimes challenging, but the benefits were so worth itl.

Trip was Fantastic! Our travel agent (Vince) does a nice job of insuring all little details are taken care of such. Thank you Vince!

I felt two hotels were very old and not updated and not 4* hotels. In Venice my room flooded from the toilet twice. Reception didn't offer to move us because they indicated the hotel was full. Several hotels were not in a good location. For the rate we were charged I felt like most of the optional tours should have been included. Should have been more shuttle buses available to and from the airport, initially they said they would have 3, it was reduced to 2 shuttle with long waiting periods.

The Venice Hotel rooms too small although the location was great.

A tour guide can either make or break a trip - our guide consistently provided excellent service, demonstrated professionalism, flexibility and humor even when faced with record breaking weather conditions! He went above any beyond any other guide I've had a trip with.

James was extremely helpful in choosing which itinerary and which tour operator for our Italy trip. We chose the Best of Italy with Trafalgar and enjoyed every minute. The cities and length of stays and tours were perfect. And by the Grace of God there were no airline foul ups which was my bigget fear.

My only comment is that toward the end of the tour we stopped visiting churches because guests on previous tours had complained. We missed the Duomo in Florence, a major attraction because of this. I wished they had explained this better so I could have made other arrangements to see it. By the time I understood, the wait was 2 hours to get in.

Alex has been very supportive and responsive when assisting us with both US and international travel.

Exceptional experience. We loved every minute of it. Very professional and friendly starting with Nina at affordabletours.com anf trip dirctor Marina and driver Maurizio at trafalgar. We had one of our best vacations of our llives. We would recommend affordable tours.com as one of the best. Thank you again.

we wanted a tour operator that would do all the necessary work to arrange the hotels, tours, transportation, meals etc. Trafalgar Tours provided everything we hoped for. The did all the work that was necessary for us to have a trip of a life time.

Was not expecting so much on the mower, where everything planned time to the minute. The meals provided through the tour were underwhelming .

Trafalgar Best of Italy tour was a great trip. The best part was Lake Como, Lake Majorrie, Positano, and of course Venice.

The trip was a once in a life time experience! The tour director was outstanding! I believe all travelers need to know before they sign up that there is a lot of walking and if you are not in shape or have a walking problem, you may have problems.

The only major issue we had with Trafalgar was the transfer for the Rome airport to the first hotel. There was a "strike" going on with no coaches running downtown. The resolution from Trafalgar's staff at the airport was to wait approximately 4 hours at the airport when they thought this "strike" might end. We had to hire our own van driver to get to our hotel who informed us that strikes happen all the time. Trafalgar should have back up plans in place if this is a common occurrence. I will say our travel director did reimburse us with in two days.

Our tour director was excellent and our local guides were courteous and very knowledgeable. Our coach driver took good care of our luggage and provided us with safe transportation.

Lodging was outstanding. Included activities were as described and enjoyable. I would probably do fewer of the optional activities in the future so as to have more "down time."

Our travel consltant at Affordable Tours was great to work with. He was very knowledgeable and customer service oriented. He answered all of our questions and whenever we emailed him, he responded very quickly. The trip was extraordinary. Our driver and our tour director were excellent. The tour directory was very funny, extremely organized, detail-oriented, and knowledgeable. All of us were amazed with the driver's driving on such narrow streets. The hotels were ok. The room at UNa in Rome was very small, and the rooms at the wonderful hotel in Lake Maggiore were very much outdated even though the property was beautiful. The breakfasts need to be improved in all of the hotels. I was not too impressed with the dinners at the hotels either. Very little food was given and did not meet the expectations I had about eating big portions and great variety in Italy. Other than that, I loved the optional dinners at Venice, Florence and Sorrento. We had great weather, the guides were great also.

The trip was fantastic. Our days were filled with all the great places and the hotels we stayed in were wonderful. Our local tour guides were extremely knowledgable about the area and our overall tour guide was excellent. She was energetic and was able to educate us on every point in history on our trip. One thing for improvement, tour bus wifi never really worked. Thank you Trafalgar and Affordable Tours for a trip of a lifetime. Perfecto!

The Trafalgar people involved with this specific tour were wonderful. The Tour Director had plenty of knowledge of the areas visited and how to make the trip a success for ALL - she was fantastic. Our driver was always looking out for our safety and comfort - he was a fantastic driver. The only items for improvement were that the hotel dinners could have been better and did not come up to the level of the dinners selected by Trafalgar at outside restaurants, but that is to be expected. During our trip, several Trafalgar people were onsite to check that the service, etc. were of the standards expected by Trafalgar which was heartening and showed their concern for their reputation and abilities.

Hotels were 4 stars, rooms were clean and big, breakfasts and dinners that provided with package were excellent, tour director and bus driver both were friendly and professional both made our trip a memorable once.

Overall, this was a great experience.

I would book with Affordable Tours again and again. Trafalgar Tours was excellent. Our tour guide was excellent and "made" the trip with her attitude and expertise. I can't recommend them with a higher two thumbs up!! I would and will recommend them to everyone I know.

Overall, the trip was as we expected. We saw a lot and enjoyed all sights. Be prepared to wake up early in the morning. It was nice to have "free time" in the afternoons/evenings. It gave us an opportunity to explore Italy/dining on our own. Also, make sure you have very comfortable shoes to wear as there's a lot of walking, including many steps and hills.

Italy was all I thought it would be and more. The negative points are as follows: Too many people (48), much too fast for our age group. I definitely chose the wrong tour for the over 70 people in my party. My sister (84) had trouble walking the cobblestone streets and her legs swelled so much that we held the group up most days. Our director was kind to order a taxi a few times for her. I should have researched the tours more closely and chosen a slower and shorter tour. We are all burnt out.

Optional tours were very expensive, for the destination...not all but couple of them....were not worth 70 euro each...

Way too many people on the tour. I was told there would be about 40 people max. There were 53 people on this tour. We had a very good tour group and excellent tour guide with no drama and everyone was courteous and kind to one another. I would have liked more time in some places and less in others, but a tour does not allow that. My favorite places were Sorrento and capri, Venice and the lakes district. I also would have liked to spend more time in the small towns as I found them very charming (Assisi).

We highly recommend both Trafalgar Tours and Affordable Tours.

The experience was everything you could ever hope for.

Our tour guide and driver were excellent! This was one of our best trips ever! We would highly recommend the Best of Italy trip!

I have travelled many tours but this was the best run and coordinated one. The tour director was outstanding

We saw a lot, but didn't have enough time in each place. I guess it was a great intro and will inspire a revisit. My only complaint was that the Wi Fi didn't work at all on the bus, and WiFi was either poor or non-existant (even though the hotels said they had WiFi).

I was told this is a luxury tour but the hotel rooms are not good

This was the vacation of a life time. Our tour director with Trafalgar was so helpful, pleasant and professional. As I write this we are visiting my husband\'s grandparent\'s family home in San Donato Val Di comino....... What a great way to end a perfect vacation!

This Best of Italy was a \'bucket list\' trip of a lifetime. Our traveling companions were prompt, courteous and fun! Our travel director was funny and informative. This trip exceeded our expectations!

Tour guide was outstanding!! Perfect trip.

We had a fabulous time on our trip. Our bus driver and tour guide were excellent.

trip was great,,guide outstanding...

Thanks for helping make this vacation a memorable one.

Our trip exceeded our expectations. Trafalgar Tours was very professional. Affordable Tours gave us good value and did everything we needed for our trip.

Regarding accomodations, two of the places where we stayed (in Assissi and in Florence) were not first class. While the other hotels were, some people always seemed to get the best view and the balcony while others didn't. Also, as a lone traveler sharing a room, assignments should have reflected this. At every hotel we had to ask for room service to separate our twin beds. While the itinerary matched the description, I found that the BEST OF ITALY was contained in the optional tours and not so much in the itinerary itself making for greater expense. Enjoyed the trip regardless.

I had a wonderful time on my holiday. This is the second time that I have used this site to book my holiday, and on both occasions I have been very satisfied with the service that I have received. I have highly recommended this site to many of my family, friends and workmates.
