  • Sandra9th January 2018
    This is now the 3rd trip I have booked with TourRadar and I always find them to be extremely helpful. From experience I can say that messages are responded to very quickly and they always provide the best of help regarding the tour details and any other queries you might have. It is also a great help to be able to see all the tour companies on the one site. This for me was the biggest advantage when I first found TourRadar on the web but I keep coming back because I know TourRadar has great customer service!
