  • Charmaine28th January 2018
    Easy to use use website. All the options can be seen on one page. What I liked most, as a solo traveller, is that I did not have to request a quote. The latter meaning that my search and organisation has to stop for 24-48hours. With TourRadar the single supplement came up instantly allowing you to make decisions on the spot and save valuable time.
