    Pros: The local guides were generally good (but we could have accessed them directly).

    Summary: My wife and I did this tour in May 2011.  We both felt that we could have done better ourselves buying a travel guide and a rail pass.Hotels were either poor and well situated, or satisfactory and on the outskirts of the city.  ... read more

    Pros: The country side was nice.
    Cons: This was my third trip with Trafalgar and for sure my last.

    Pros: Can't think of anything good to say about Trafalgar.  Not a single word!
    Cons: I would crawl through Europe on my belly before I'd book another Trafalgar tour. 

    Summary: After taking our money, providing us with "firm" dates and allowing us months in which make all sorts of pre-departure plans, Trafalgar cancelled our tour - apparently because it did not fill up enough to be profitable.  Gee, I wonder why that was, ... read more
