Gorgeous Greece

Gorgeous Greece. Moraig, our guide and Dimitri were excellent, they provided the best service- nothing was too much and the attention to detail was second to none. Brilliant tour, well organised, interesting and jam packed- awesome value for money. They were helpful, thorough, thoughtful and considerate. The local experts were phenomenal and passionate, our tour was the best of Greece and that’s definitely what we got.

A decent tour with room for improvement

Overall, the tour was pretty fun, but there were some things that could have been done better in Milan. The hotel that was provided was fine, but it didn't have as many amenities as the other hotels that were part of the tour package. still, the itinerary was complete, including a lot of interesting things to see in the short amount of time that was available. The hotels were only average, but that's because they were on a tight budget. the coaches used for transportation were always clean and comfortable during the tour.,

Thank you for sharing your review with us. We are delighted that you had a fantastic experience with us and that our On Road Team contributed to your unique itinerary. We understand that ensuring our guests experience all the beautiful attractions in our itinerary can result in busy schedules and full days. However, we are aware that our guests would like to visit all the sites mentioned in the itinerary. Our Contracting Team puts a lot of effort into selecting the hotels we work with to ensure we offer comfortable, well-located accommodation at a great value. Nonetheless, we acknowledge that hotel standards vary from country to country. Some hotels may differ in size, character, and amenities from what our guests are accustomed to. However, we expect all our appointed hotels to meet our high standards. We have shared your comments with our Quality Control team to ensure our accommodation continues to offer our guests the best experience. Thank you for choosing to travel with Trafalgar. We appreciate your feedback.

Never again with Trafalgar Tours

We booked a Splendors of Japan Tour with Trafalgar and my husband was medically unable to go. We gave them 3 months notice and had to write 23 emails and make over 12 calls to get a partial refund. Their service is so poor and the right hand does not know anything about the left hand. We would NEVER use them again and tell all our friends how poorly they treated us. We mostly received these automatic, "no reply" emails and when you actually speak to someone, they put you on hold several times, for a lengthy hold and have nothing to offer except lip service! Terrible business, terrible service and we booked, they never shared with us they would penalize us for canceling 3 months advance!

Date of experience : January 09, 2024

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge receipt of your concerns and express our apologies for the level of service you have received from our Contact Centre that did not meet your expectations. We would like to acknowledge the cancellation you submitted three months prior to your scheduled travel date. We understand that you are aware of our booking conditions, which stipulate the industry standard cancellation fees. We cannot investigate the conditions surrounding your booking as we need your booking information. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest level of service. As such, our Guest Relations Department would be happy to assist you with any necessary documentation required to claim your travel insurance. Once again, we would like to thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

Horrific Tour Director Maja

If zero stars were only available!! STAY AWAY from Trafalgar-Tour Director Maja was rude and condescending.

Date of experience : November 03, 2023

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Our Travel Directors are essential in ensuring our guests have a pleasant and comfortable trip. We carefully choose team members who are passionate about travel and service. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations, and we have shared your feedback with our Operations Manager to improve our services in the future. Although it's rare, we hope you have some positive memories of your tour.

Never will we travel with Trafalgar…

Never will we travel with Trafalgar again. Paid top price and got budget tour from Madrid to Barcelona bus tour. Very little stopping to take pictures and shown very little tourist attractions. All about going from start to finish and nothing in-between. So disappointed after travelling hard way around the world.

Date of experience : August 05, 2023

Thank you for your review. We hope you had the chance to immerse yourself in the Spanish culture during your trip and enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the locals, the delicious cuisine and the country’s rich history, which is all unique to this beautiful country. However, we were concerned to learn that you felt certain aspects of the trip could have been improved. Exploring this beautiful country in a condensed amount of time can be quite an adventure, and we strive to include the perfect amount of time at each location for in-depth discovery; there are certain towns where we wish to stay longer. We have shared your feedback with our Operations team as we constantly strive to see where our itineraries can be improved. That said, we still hope you have taken some lasting highlights during your time away with us.

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.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We value your honest opinion and are sorry to hear that certain aspects of your trip did not meet your expectations. Our On The Road Team is integral to ensuring our guests have an enjoyable and comfortable experience during their travels. We carefully select team members who are passionate about travel and possess extensive knowledge of their respective regions. We are disappointed that your experience did not reflect this. Your feedback has been shared with our Operations Manager, and appropriate measures will be taken. We understand that our guests appreciate having the freedom to explore and engage with the local culture, which is why we provide a range of Optional Experiences. These experiences are designed to enhance our guests' understanding of the places we visit and are separate from the itinerary. Our Contracting Department ensures that our accommodations are of a four-star standard or higher. We apologise if the hotel standards did not meet your expectations. Similarly, we apologise for any disappointment caused by the meals provided during your trip. We appreciate that the cuisine of Italy is world-renowned, and we will investigate your feedback to ensure we offer only the best to our clients. We understand that the long coach rides may have been tiring, but we hope that the unique attractions outlined in the itinerary made up for it. Our luxury coaches can accommodate up to 52 guests, although we typically have an average of 40-48 guests. However, if additional space is required, our sister company, Insight Vacations, offers specially reconfigured coaches with only 40 seats, providing business-class legroom. A Classic Insight Vacations tour has a maximum of 40 travellers, whereas their Small Group departures have just 24. We understand that guests may have different preferences when it comes to gratuities. Therefore, we offer the option to prepay gratuities or pay during the trip. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to improve our future departures. We hope to host you again and provide an authentic Trafalgar experience.

Trafalgar overcharged us for pre paid…

Trafalgar charged us for pre paid gratuities. Suggest you don’t pay these in advance to Trafalgar. We found Trafalgar asked for almost NZ$80 ( allowing for local currency exchange rate) more than the tour leader and driver expected or would have got. So far Trafalgar hasn’t responded to our request for a refund of the overpayment. Also the ‘included’ meals at local venues were very poor quality with the exception of one. Only one hotel had air conditioning. Very few USB charge points on the bus worked. However The tour itinerary and tour leader were great.

Trafalgar is a company that DOES NOT care…

Trafalgar is not a company that cares about it's customers at all. I paid for insurance for my Italy trip and paid to upgrade my flight both ways. On my way to Italy I was downgraded by United last minute.....literally 5 minutes before boarding. We won't even get into how awful United has been during this, but I thought for sure Trafalgar would make sure everything was made right....HAHAHA.....nope! Yes, I know United only gave them a 1/4 of what I paid for, for my flight, but Trafalgar should make sure their customers are treated right after such a horrible experience during a trip. I own a business and if I have to take a slight loss to make sure my customers are taken care of then thats what it takes. I have lost THOUSANDS and Trafalgar does nothing to make it better. What an awful company and they will never see another dime from me. Not like they care tho.....too busy just trying to take everyone's money.

Date of experience : September 07, 2023

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. At Trafalgar, we value all feedback and take it seriously. We are pleased to hear that our Guest Relations Department was able to assist you in facilitating the refund from United Airlines. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the downgrade you experienced. Please note that we have no control over the airline's policies and procedures. However, we appreciate your valuable feedback. Once again, thank you for your feedback, and we look forward to serving you better in the future.

Traveled all night USA to Fr

Traveled all night USA to Fr, can’t wait to get to see the hotel to freshen up and do some sightseeing. When I arrive with 4 pieces of luggage, at 9am, I am told, with an attitude, check in is 2pm, so here I am sitting in the lobby with my luggage, my very, very costly vacation is already ruined, never again

Date of experience : September 24, 2023

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that during your booking process, you were not well informed that the official check-in times vary from hotel to hotel. Should your flight arrive in the early morning into the city where your trip begins, you may find yourself arriving at the hotel before noon, and it could be early afternoon before your room is ready (Two pm or Three pm). Hotels try to prevent this from happening, but check-in times cannot be guaranteed. The hotel can suggest how any spare time could be used to sightsee, relax or enjoy local restaurants while your room is being prepared. When arriving at your first hotel, check in at the main reception desk. The reception staff will need to know your name and that you are travelling with Trafalgar. When your trip begins, check-in will be managed by the Travel Director, who will advise you on procedures and hotel features before arrival. They will secure keys and oversee the delivery of your luggage to your room. Thank you for choosing Trafalgar as your travel partner, and we hope that you have an unforgettable travel experience.

Wish I had read the reviews before…

Wish I had read the reviews before booking with Trafalgar - I will NEVER travel with this tour company again. In September 2023 myself and a travel companion traveled to Northern Spain. The experience for the most part was awful. Some hotels were lovely, some meals were good, wine was plentiful but other hotels and meals were terrible. Biggest complaint was the pressure and fast paced walking to keep up with the tour director. It was rush, rush, rush with little to no time to explore, take pictures, etc. There were 52 passengers on the bus and little time to use the restrooms when we stopped, get a refreshment or look around. The whole trip was exhausting and grueling and it was clear the tour director just had a schedule to keep (not his fault). I was so glad when the tour came to an end.

Date of experience : September 02, 2023

Thank you for your feedback during your time spent in Spain. We aim to provide the best travel experience for our guests, and it is only through your valuable feedback that we can continue improving the standards we are known for. Our team strives to provide the most unique and enjoyable guided vacations for all our guests, and we’re saddened to read that you feel we missed the mark in this instance. We understand that an active itinerary can be tiring and that some valuable guests prefer smaller groups. We apologise that you were not well informed regarding the group size for this trip at the time of the booking. We have designed our Trafalgar tours to accommodate up to fifty-two guests on our luxury coaches, although we average forty to forty-five guests. If smaller groups are a must and a leisure itinerary is what you prefer, our sister company, Insight Vacations, has small group departures with a maximum of twenty-four and offers some selected itineraries at a leisurely pace. That said, we still hope you have taken many lasting highlights away from your time in Spain.

Best of Italy

Best of Italy, Best of my trips! This trip exceeded my expectations! The tourist guide, Romeo, was a 10! The hotels were very comfortable,(a couple of them luxurious, a couple of them excellent and a couple of them very good./ Food offered pretty good. Dinner in the Tuscany Hills unbelievable. Coach very comfortable and clean. I traveled with the "other " company before, the one starts with "G", and definitely Trafalgar was the best (My second tour with them).Hopefully I can make many more tours with them.

Date of experience : September 29, 2023

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback during your time in Italy, and it's always great to learn our frequent travellers continue to explore the world with us. We are pleased you had the opportunity to witness the breathtaking attractions in Italy and immersed yourself in Italian culture. It pleases us to learn that our Travel Director demonstrated exceptional knowledge of the destination and provided a high level of service to ensure your enjoyable experience. Our team of Travel Directors are passionate about travel, and we are happy to know that they continually strive to provide professional and outstanding service to our valuable guests. It was great to read that our coaches met your expectations and that you travelled comfortably, as this is a crucial factor in enjoying your time on the road. That said, we hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future; in the meantime, please know that we are committed to providing the best possible experience for our guests.

Dont risk your money with Trafalgar

Trafalgar cancelled our tour booking without our consent because I asked about if there was availability on another tour. Never did they mention that enquiring about another tour they cancel your existing booking. Now the tour is full and I have spent $18,000 on Qantas airfares and accom. Tour booked in Jan 2023 for Sept 2023 tour. Nobody takes responsible and nobody will call me to discuss. Family of 4 holiday ruined,.

Don’t get injured with Trafalgar

Follow up: Trafalgar, did in fact, contact us. We spent 6 months with either our travel agent advocating on our behalf or directly contacting them. In the end... THEY HID BEHIND contract BS. A terrible experience all around. They do not care about clients and as the formulaic response below demonstrates. You don't matter with Trafalgar... a billion dollar corporation protecting their bottom line. ---‐--‐------------------------------------ Don’t get injured with Trafalgar While travelling with Trafalgar on The Best of Italy Tour my wife fell on the marble floor of at The Grand Hotel in Sorrento on day 3 of our trip. She fell hard and was in shock at the breakfast table, shaking and cold. After the initial concern the Travel Director and hotel staff left us to our own devices. We were left to attempt to contact insurance in a hotel with phones that were not working and staff who apparently did not understand how to connect the phones so we could call out. On the advice of fellow travelers, we sought out medical assistance when we arrived in Assisi as the initial shock of the accident turned into significant pain the following day. It was as if the staff of Trafalgar had never dealt with an accident or injury before, and our Travel Director had 3 decades of experience! We requested assistance with the language barrier and were patronizingly assured that “someone would speak English”. The only one who did was the doctor who saw my wife; and her English was faulty. We were left to Google Translate to try to communicate. Going into the hospital my wife and I agreed that if her leg was fractured or broken, we would return home. X-rays revealed that she had sustained 3 fractured ribs and (the doctor stated) a badly bruised tibia. Upon returning home 2 weeks later, follow up x-rays found a fractured tibia. Unaware of the severity of the injury to her leg and assured by the doctor that the swelling would go down in 2-3 days. We decided that we should go on as another trip to Italy was not in our plans. Our Travel Director was often dismissive, seemed truly put out when we asked for accommodations such as wheelchairs and seating at the front of the bus. Fellow travelers offered more assistance and support than our Travel Director. Upon returning home we contacted Trafalgar as the two travel agents we worked with were both aghast with the poor level of care offered and recommended that we seek some form of compensation. Trafalgar has consistently side-stepped accepting responsibility for the inadequate support of its team in Italy and hidden behind its terms and conditions. We did not blame the company for the fall, rather expressed our extreme displeasure with the level of compassion and care that Trafalgar staff provided after the fall. We sought reimbursement as the trip was mired with issues that could have been easily and proactively managed if protocols and compassion were employed. Our travel agents will never engage Trafalgar again and we will not travel with this corporation.

Thank you for sharing your experiences on Trustpilot. We acknowledge the comprehensive investigation carried out over several months by our Global Guest Relations Team and the conclusion of your case. It's disheartening to learn that you feel your concerns haven't been adequately addressed, and for this, we sincerely apologise. As per our previous communications to you, should you feel to raise your concerns further please contact our Guest Relations Team and they will do all they can to assist.

It is unfortunate that Trafalgar can no…

It is unfortunate that Trafalgar can no longer afford to supply name tags for guests. I don't know about the rest of you readers, but I am not sure how many days it is going to take me to remember 47 people's names

Date of experience : September 19, 2023

Thank you for your feedback. We regret that there may have been a miscommunication regarding name tags on our journeys. Indeed, as marked in our literature, we are trying to eliminate single-use plastics as part of our Make Travel Matter strategy. That said, we hope you have a pleasant journey with us and make many new friendships.

Excellent experience

I have no idea what all these reviewers are complaining about. I recently returned from a Best of Scotland tour and it was the best tour I’ve ever taken. Our tour guide was exceptional. He packed so many experiences into a day we got back to our hotels exhausted each night. Our driver was the best, too. Several people had issues, the airline lost two couples’ luggage and Trafalgar sent them shopping for anything they needed on its dime. One woman fell the day she arrived in Scotland, breaking her femur and the tour guide did everything possible to make her trip successful. Most importantly, even with all the issues, no one complained and most of us signed up for all the optional experiences because we had so much fun together.

DO NOT RECOMMEND!!

DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! Trafalgar cancelled my trip too Santa Fe (which is understandable and accepted as their may not have been enough people booking, or COVID or whatever). The 90-100 days quoted to get a refund for the trip the company cancelled is NOT ACCEPTABLE. It has now been six weeks and Trafalgar still has my $3300. Calls to the service center take HOURS on hold. Horrible customer service. Horrible refund policy. Definitely disappointed.

Glacier Park Option: Does not Deliver

Do not add the Glacier Park option to your Canadian Rockies trip unless you want to spend lots of money for a subpar option. Initially, we were scheduled to stay at a hotel in the park. A few weeks before the tour start date, we were rescheduled for yet another Hilton Garden. Although a nice hotel, it was outside of the park. I did not pay an exorbitant add-on fee to stay at another Hilton. I could have tolerated that if we had had time in the park to walk and take a hike. On the day we toured the park, we waited approximately 6 hours to take the tour bus to Sun Road, which was nice but did not allow any time to hike to the iconic lake at the top of the road. Why was our bus tour scheduled so late in the day when we arrived at the park early in the morning? Whoever scheduled this part of the trip had little or no scheduling experience or is incompetent. And Trafalgar's answer to the complaint was to offer a percentage discount on another one of its trip. Never again. I specifically signed up with this company because it was the only one that offered the Glacier option. Such a disappointment.

Date of experience : August 21, 2023

Thank you for taking the time to provide your review. We appreciate your honest feedback and apologise if the response from our Guest Relations Team did not meet your expectations. We understand that you chose this itinerary because Glacier Park is a must-see destination, and we regret if the Make Travel Matter experience was not adequately explained before embarking on the Sun Road drive. This drive features the Continental Divide over Logan Pass. We understand that saving and planning for a dream vacation is a significant investment, and we apologise if our goodwill gesture does not meet your expectations. We hope you will still consider using the discount offered by our Guest Relations Department to experience an authentic Trafalgar travel experience. Thank you for choosing our tour service. We value your feedback and look forward to serving you again.

Trafalgar is a money scoop

Trafalgar is a money scoop, Kiss it goodbye. The trip Guides are Phenomenal, the company is DIRT. I think they are in financial trouble. Trying to get them on the phone is impossible. Have been through Europe Rome to London, Then Portugal and Spain. Quality of Excursions are poor, and cheaply done. Hotels are outside of city centers to make you dependent on them. Most provide dinners are Minimal. The Guides where Professionals and made the trips worth it. They keep this company going....they should give up!

Just finished a Croatia and Slovenia…

Just finished a Croatia and Slovenia tour. The hotels and coach were ok BUT to really see the destinations we went to you had to take the options which are really over priced for what you get. If you don't take the options you are left at the hotel and have to make your own way. Included meals were way below par with limited choices and the meals were rushed. Would never recommend this company .

Is Trafalgar tours worth it?

Now that we know a little more about what Trafalgar Tours offers, the next question is - are their tours worth it?

The short answer is yes!

Trafalgar Tours is an excellent choice if you're looking for an all-inclusive tour. Choose Trafalgar if you want someone else to take care of everything from accommodation to transfers to meals. With over 70 years of experience, they know how to create unforgettable vacations.

However, trips can get strenuous, especially with daily train travel. Discuss your interests with Trafalgar's customer service if you're looking for a more relaxed vacation. They can help you create a more customized trip that still includes all the best parts of a Trafalgar tour.

There have been reports of departure delays and itinerary changes. While this is rare, it's best to prepare yourself for the possibility. Make sure you have travel insurance and read reviews before booking anything. 

But overall, we think Trafalgar Tours is worth it! But only if you're looking for a stress-free tour that's well-organized. But if it's a more relaxed vacation you're after, consider other travel organizers like  Intrepid Travel  and  EF Go Ahead .

Our ratings: 3.6/5

  • Tours in 72 countries
  • All-inclusive tours
  • Experienced and passionate local guides
  • Committed to responsible travel
  • 24-hour customer service
  • Poor accommodation choice
  • Frequent trip postponements
  • Poor customer service support
  • Failure to refund upon cancellation

All set to book your Trafalgar tour?

Now that we've answered whether Trafalgar tour's worth it, it's time to consider whether a tour is the right travel option for you. While tours like Trafalgar takes care of everything for you, planning your own trip can be so much more worth it.

Is there a faster way to get talk to customer seevice ( emails and phone are not answered)?

I'm a travel agent with clients on Trafalgar. The wait times for enquiries are ridiculously long, up to 4 hours. I won't be selling anymore Trafalgar tours anytime soon.

Well I never thought that I would be writing a bad review but I am. Back in June of this year the wife and I booked a three week (the best of Greece) vacation tour to through Trafalgar. We paid for travel insurance not knowing we would need it. Traveling from Los Angeles we arrived in Greece and was informed that our luggage was lost. We filed a claim with the airport and when we walked out to get our ride to the hotel, there was no one there. I called the trafalgar number for transportation and was told that we had to take a taxi to the hotel because the driver couldn't wait any longer. The taxi was about $60 dollars total, whereas I paid trafalgar $50 per person. Since we had no luggage or clothes, we went shopping for a suitcase and clothes just to get by. We made the best of a bad situation. I even called my travel agent who said everything will be taken care of when we returned home just save receipts. At the end of our Athens site seeing trip, we took a 6 hour fast ferry from Athens to Santorini for the next three days. We had a great time. We took an island hopper back to Athens for a one night stay at the hotel and then to the airport to travel back to Los Angeles. Well, while on the flight from Santorini the travel guide informed us that we didn't have transfer vouchers to board the bus to the hotel. So we took another taxi to the hotel. When we made it home, I filed my insurance claims with the insurance company for luggage and clothes and I filed a claim with Trafalgar for the two taxis that we had to use. The insurance company paid right away. But being a repeat customer of Trafalgar I was SCHOCKED that they had refused to reimburse me for my out of pocket cost. I even said I paid for a service that I didn't receive and wanted a refund for that. Again denied. My travel agent felt so bad that she eventually came out of pocket and paid us. I WILL THINK TWICE BEFORE USING THIS COMPANY AGAIN.

Not for seasoned travelers, or people who need detail. First and last tour with Trafalgar. We did the Imperial Europe tour, and they don't provide any details as to bus travel time or when you'll be free to do whatever you want until the day of. You will spend about half the tour on a full bus. A quarter of the bus came down with COVID (including us) and there were no rules to ensure that everyone else wouldn't get sick. Hotels were good (except Salzburg), provided meals were awful. We didn't get to do the one additional tour that we actually wanted to do. It was canceled on the way, and we wasted the entire day waiting to move on to the next city. Barely had any time to do our own thing. Were hustled from one city to the next, and didn't have one morning to sleep in.

My Trafalgar experience-So after losing the entire amount of trip to Trafalgar they graciously sent me 2 vouchers for $600 ea. REALLY- like i would use this company again quite the scam going on here

Sirs, I booked a tour (B860570) with your company last May as an 42nd Anniversary present. The trip is coming up in March. We had a family crisis as we had to take temporary custody of a 9 yr old girl from an abuse family . I contacted your customer service as this issue with the child would not be resolved before our trip hoping to change the dates. The representative stated my options would be to pay a cancellation penalty at $876.50 or he could change dates of our travel, which I wanted to do. I stated that I would contact Airlines then reach back and change the dates of travel. After arrangements with Airlines, I called Trafalgar back to change the dates. The young lady now assisting me stated the I could not change dates that I had to pay cancellation rate of $1753.00. I explained that the previous agent a few days earlier stated I could change dates. I had a reference number from the initial conversation as I wrote everything down and He said that he would apply notes of what we discussed. This did not matter to the young lady, she stated that this was NOT an option now. My only option now was to pay the inflated cancellation price. I explained all this to her, but it didn't matter to her. Now we have lost the trip as well as $1753.00. I know this most likely doesn't matter to a large company like yourself. I was not trying to take advantage of any situation but only had a little girl's best interest at heart. We trusted your company with a once in a lifetime trip and this is what we received in return.

Horrible customer service. So sad that Costco is represented by them! No call backs! Tried contacting them but no response. Have read many horrible reviews on their packages. Not taking a chance with them! AAA has better in person service.

Booking the trip was so incredibly easy!!!! The representative on the phone was very nice! Very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions. Booking was insanely easy! We did The Best of Ireland and Scotland with Andrew Speed and Eoin Lynch. They were both so incredibly amazing and a huge factor in making our trip memorable. Andrew was such a bundle of knowledge! the way he told us the history of the land and all the various stories throughout the trip felt like such a treat! I could listen to him for hours! HE also worked very hard to time everything perfectly. Somehow ever single stop we made, we were able to see the beautiful sites and shop all the stores before the other tour buses ruined the scenes with all the people or before the weather turned bad. He was like the tour guide/ weather doppler all in one. Eoin Lynch was also a huge factor in our amazing trip! He managed to get us on time at every stop I believe! I also have never trusted anyone more than him to drive me or a bus full of rowdy people through the country, or small cramped winding city roads, or across narrow cliff sides. His driving skills truly are impressive! But the dedication he took every single day to keep the bus clean was also something he should be commended for! Those people were gross and messy, yet every single day he THOROUGHLY cleaned that bus no matter how long it took. Jim Bug and Ashley

We did the Wonders of Egypt Tour. Overall the tour was very good. Our Tour Guide Adel was Outstanding- knowledgeable caring kind funny and made sure we all stayed safe. We learned so much not just about ancient history but about Egypt, Islam and the world in that area. We were there when the war broke out with Hamas. The busses were excellent as well. My one major complaint was that they said our trip on the Nile would be on one of three ships and then it was not. It was on a much smaller older ship and the rooms were super tiny. It was clean but the rooms felt "unclean" in a sense, the carpets being old and just no room to move around wiht two people. But the staff and service was the best I"ve ever had anywhere.

We have now used Trafalgar for three trips. Booking a trip could not be easier. They booked our trip to Italy, a 15 day excursion to Greece, the Greek Isles, and Turkey and also a trip to some of the National Parks i.e. Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, and also some great stops in Az to start the tour and ended the tour in Las Vegas. Every trip was outstanding with everything being taken care of from start to finish. The cost were reasonable and the service from the booking agent to our guides, transportation, and hotels were all superb. Trafalgar leaves nothing to chance and since covid have added wellness directors to be available on the trips. I don't think you can beat the service and the experiences that Trafalgar provides. We are in the planning stages our next two trips one to the Holy Land and Jordan, and taking our adult children and spouse for a family vacation to Italy. Do yourself a favor and look into Trafalgar for all your travel needs.

Best of Italy tour in October 2023 was terrible. It was only 11 days instead of 13 days because Trafalgar counts arrival and departure as 2 days. Reasons for poor review: 1) I understood only 10 % of the travel director--Federica's spiel. She had a heavy Italian accent--of which she was proud. 2) The travel director constantly sold the optional excursions, which were 2.5 times more expensive than the local tours. We booked a Crown Collosseum tour in Rome, and a Viator tour of the Gallery Accadaemia--statue of David, which were excellent, and you had all the time you wanted. 3) The bus driver--Theo--was surly and rude. 4) The hotels were 2-3 star, and the breakfasts were terrible. 5) The hotels had no AC, low water pressure, and extremely crowded breakfasts. There was usually another full Trafalgar bus at the same hotel, and a Gate 1 bus. Extremely noisy at breakfast. 6) We prepaid gratuities, and were NOT thanked by the travel director nor the bus driver. We will not prepay again. We will NOT use Trafalgar again. 7) The bus rides were extremely long--4-8 hours. You could not relax because of the constant babbling by the travel director. Recommendation: Do Not use Trafalgar!

Just returned from Trafalgar's Best of Greece tour. I can not say enough about how wonderful this experience was for me and my son. Our tour director Ioannis was the absolute best for every aspect. His knowledge of the sites, the history, the local foods, and people were far above what I expected. His organization of the trip was unparalleled. He made sure we left on-time, got to the sites before all the crowds, and created a schedule where you never felt rushed but felt like you saw everything you could. We did not take the optional tour of Santorini instead of opting to go to Mykonos for the sandy beaches and night life. The only hiccup to the trip was Air Canada who I will now call Air Cant-ada. Our luggage was left behind in Denver and we had to spend the first 4 days scrounging for necessities and additional clothes that we washed in the sink. Again, Ioannis came to the rescue. When the bags finally arrives in Greece, he coordinated with AC to have them meet us in Delphi and with the hotel to pick them up at the local bus station and bring them to our room. We also never took any of our pre-booked flights on AC. They were either delayed for equipment issues our outright cancelled. When booking this trip from the US or Canada, specify you DO NOT want to fly with AC. If you are looking at this trip, please understand it is NOT for those with mobility issues. My fitness app said I climbed over 112 flight and walked over 50 miles. The paths are often uneven and the stones can be slippery as these are over 4000 years old. The bus was new and the driver was amazing. We went to a olive oil farm and tried different flavors with a great dinner. There was a trip to a honey farm where we donned bee keepers suits and learned about bees and honey production also tasting many varieties. Ignoring AC, I'd give this tour a 10/10. YAMAS!!!

The Scoop: What to Know About Trafalgar Tours

THE SCOOP: What to Know About Trafalgar Tours

Trafalgar Tours: What You Get When You Book

Two hallmarks of the Trafalgar Tours brand are authentic meals and unstructured conversations in the homes of locals as part of the “Be My Guest” experience. I’ve found breaking bread with people from around the world to be a true privilege and a big reason why I continue to gravitate towards Trafalgar tours in 2024. 

All on-trip transportation, transfers, and accommodations are included, plus many meals and experiences. With someone else taking care of tedious details, you’re free to relax and enjoy the sights. The maximum number of participants on a Trafalgar tour is between 20 and 52 people, depending on the destination. On the low end, Africa trips max out at 20, while North American trips can have up to 52 people.

What is the difference between these 2 Moscow metro tours on the same tour group page? One is less expensive than the other but both have positive reviews.

We would like to go on this tour but could not decide which one to book. Thank you.

Fun facts from our Moscow Metro Tours:

From the very first days of its existence, the Moscow Metro was the object of civil defense, used as a bomb shelter, and designed as a defense for a possible attack on the Soviet Union.

At a depth of 50 to 120 meters lies the second, the coded system of Metro-2 of Moscow subway, which is equipped with everything you need, from food storage to the nuclear button.

According to some sources, the total length of Metro-2 reaches over 150 kilometers.

The Museum was opened on Sportivnaya metro station on November 6, 1967. It features the most interesting models of trains and stations.

Coffee Ring

The first scheme of Moscow Metro looked like a bunch of separate lines. Listen to a myth about Joseph Stalin and the main brown line of Moscow Metro.

Zodiac Metro

According to some astrologers, each of the 12 stops of the Moscow Ring Line corresponds to a particular sign of the zodiac and divides the city into astrological sector.

Astrologers believe that being in a particular zadiac sector of Moscow for a long time, you attract certain energy and events into your life.

Paleontological finds 

Red marble walls of some of the Metro stations hide in themselves petrified inhabitants of ancient seas. Try and find some!

  • Every day each car in  Moscow metro passes  more than 600 km, which is the distance from Moscow to St. Petersburg.
  • Moscow subway system is the  5th in the intensity  of use (after the subways of Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai).

"Our travel guide Ruby was absolutely fabulous, he went above and beyond what a travel guide should do! My father needed an X-Ray while we were in Italy and Ruby set everything up so we didn't have to worry about it. Trafalgar made the trip seem easy and everything was very professional.

Aespa

All-female Korean-pop act Aespa will release its first concert film “aespa World Tour in Cinemas” from next month.

The film will have a limited run playing globally on April 24 and 27, it was announced by Trafalgar Releasing , one of the firms behind the “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” movie.

The company did not disclose the local releasing partners but said that the film will play in premium formats, including ScreenX, 4DX and Ultra 4DX where available.

Aespa’s first world tour “aespa LIVE TOUR 2023 SYNK : HYPER LINE,” ran from Feb. to Sept., 2023, visiting 21 venues across four continents.

The new film captures Aespa’s concert at London’s O2 Arena, Aespa’s first-ever U.K. show, and performances of fan favourites including “Next Level,” “Savage,” “Girls,” “Spicy” and “Black Mamba.” The film also highlights individual performances by each member, complemented by exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews.

“With over 2.8 billion YouTube views at NEXT LEVEL MV and much raved-about performances; the fierce foursome of KARINA, GISELLE, WINTER and NINGNING are rapidly cementing their status as killer performers on and off screen,” said Trafalgar.

Aespa member Ningning was recently announced as being one of the MCs at the first edition of KCON Hong Kong , later this month.

In February, it was revealed that the group will embark on a second world tour “Synk: Parallel Line” from late June this year.

Experience @aespa_official 's debut concert film, 'aespa: WORLD TOUR in cinemas,' globally on April 24 & 27! Screening in @screenxofficial , @4DXglobal , & ULTRA 4DX where available.
