With Traflegar we had a wonderful time...tour director for Traflegar was awesome. Would/will book another tour with them.

Our tour director was the best director we have ever had. Her knowledge and sense of humor were an award-winning combination.

No Lake Lugano in Switzerland or Pisa. I thought for the price of the trip more site seeing would be included, but a lot more was done on the optionals which cost more money. I also was not a fan of most of the included meals, it would prefer the trip to be cheaper without them.

it was by far the best honeymoon experience......we loved the places..our tour guide ...and our driver. We also had a great time meeting some very nice people that we will continue to keep in contact with. Thank you!!!
