Our tour director was wonderful. The tours in each city were very informative

Group size, traveling with 49 guests on a very crowded bus. All group meals are less satisfactory due to its sheer size. Group dinners were loud and unable to know other travelers at a deeper level. Hotels often located away from amenities important to tourists. It's not easy to get a good orientation from a city map

The itinerary was much better than the descriptions. I would suggest a lot more detail.

Excellent tour w/ very personable Tour Director. The optional experiences were the best ever. Wonderful group of travelers to share this experience, hotels were great.

Our positive experience with Trafalgar's Tour Director was well beyond our expections. I would look to book another tour with him.

I am satisfied with Trafalgar Tour and with Affordable Tours. Thanks

Trafalgar tour guide was excellent and Highlights of Spain and Portugal was Great.
