    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Michelle5th December 2017
      I booked a trip through TourRadar by phone and from my first phone call, I was immediately impressed with the friendliness and efficiency of the customer service agents. I worked with a lovely agent, Myrie but everyone was so nice and made me feel extremely comfortable booking my trip to Spain and Portugal through them. Highly recommend Tour Radar for any trip!
