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 and the tour director were excellent. But our ride to Liberia airport was a disaster on wheels. The driver was not able to communicate with us about the problems as he doesnot speak english. On the way to liberia airport fumes started coming out from the back end of the vehicle. Stopped the vehicle and with the help of the local people the tire got changed and resumed the trip. The driver was not even keen to communicate with trafalgar .after another hour the vehicle completely got shut off. For a while we were stranded in the highway and trafalgar sent another 2 vans to pick up us all to airport. The return trip to airport was a disaster . Please use a vehicle with good conditions. Please do not put the tour members life in jeopardy.
