Company Reviews

Best of Italy Tour for 13 days, really 11 days. Recommendation: Do NOT take a Trafalgar Tour of any kind!

Best of Italy Tour for 13 days--actually 12 days. This was our 2nd Trafalgar tour--1st was Egypt---also terrible!
1) Could ONLY understand about 10 % of the travel director's harangue. Her name was Frederica. The same situation occurred in Egypt.
2) The bus driver named Theo was surly and rude.
3) The Travel Director constantly sold the extra excursions. These were 2.5 times more expensive then privately-made tours. Example in Rome--Crown Tours.
4) The food was terrible.
5) The hotels were at best 2-3 star. NO AC, low water pressure, and the breakfasts were poor.
6) Many hours were spent most days on the bus--4-8 hours. There were 49 passengers on this bus! You could not relax on the bus because the tour director constantly was speaking and selling optional excursions. Again, could not understand but 10 % of what she said.
7) We pre-paid gratuities, but wished that we had not done so. Neither the driver nor Travel Director thanked us. We will not prepay again, however, we will NEVER take another Trafalgar Tour.

The trip was amazing and our travel guide was wonderful. We saw all the important attractions in every town/city we visited.

Carolyne and Christof deserves a raise!

Service was fantastic. Had an amazing travel guide in Carolyne and she made the experience even more enjoyable with her leading us through the journey. She’s full of fun and I couldn’t have imagined a better experience. Our driver was great as well Christof. Always was on time and was very kind to us.

The trip is well organized. Our travel director was very lovely, sweet and accommodating. Our coach is clean, and the driver drives very smoothly and relaxing. The local specialists in all tours are very well expert. I like how they explained every detail of their beautiful country.

Kate and Ian did their best to make our trip as best as possible. Kate had great knowledge of the locations we visited and how Ian got the bus up around the small roads I'll never know. Thank you.
