I was dissatisfied with the locals tour guides.

Italy was a great trip the staff did a great job keeping us on track and moving.

The Travel Director and driver were outstanding. The director made us all laugh, and kept the group on time. The whole experience was remarkable

I have traveled with Trafalger tours in the past and strongly recommend this company. The tour guide assigned to us was excellent, organized, unflappable, extremely helpful, knowledgeable about culture and history of Italy, and everything ran like clockwork. The tour guide everyone wishes that would have!

Everything went so smoothly & went above our expectations! All of the services booked through affordable tours were on time & professional! Trafalgar planned every detail & their excursions were well worth every penny! We're definitely interested in traveling with Trafgar again!

Trafalgar was great. So many details were taken care of so that I didn't have to think about them. Our tour guide was great and the entire experience was great I would definitely consider another Trafalgar tour.

This was an experience of a lifetime. It met and exceeded all our expectations. Everything was well organized. The tour guide was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the area and professional. Accommodations were nice and well located.

A couple of the hotels were not great, even by Italian standards. I realize this was not Affordable Tours' fault. I also wasn't aware upfront about the add on excursions which made the trip more costly than originally budgeted.

This trip was everything we expected and more! The tour operator (Trafalgar) was exceptional! Hotels were very good.

Trip was excellent, Some hotels were just ok however, I do realize this is Europe and somewhat different than US Hotels. The tour director was very informative and explained everything in detail!.

Due to short amount of days and the many cities to visit the tour was nonstop. Early wake up every morning.

Our Travel Director (Maite) was exceptionally AWESOME all throughout the tour up to our early, early departure from Rome. She's hard to be topped!!!

Excellent service & everything I was told was accurate.

When traveling in a foreign country going with a tour company is the only way to travel! It exceeded our expectations. We saw, did and learned so much more than if went on our own. Plus we met great people. Fun vacation! Can't wait to book the next one!!

It's was a great experience, but a lot faster pace than I expect, so put on comfortable shoes and get ready for a lot of walking. But, well worth it. Our tour guide Pino was fantastic and so were the specialty tour guides. Everyone was very knowledgeable, which is very impressive.

Excellent accommodations all the way around, professional and very knowledgeable staff.

The days were totally packed full. There was very little free time for independent exploration of points of interest, museums, shopping, etc. But on the plus side, we saw more than we ever could have on our own within the same time frame, and without any hassles. We were absolutely delighted by the Be Our Guest experience in Tuscany - what a treat! The optional excursions enabled us to gain access to sites before the crowds; however, I would gladly have paid for them as part of our package vs. feeling that we were "nickel and dimed" for each option.
