    Our guide Iris was great. Very personable, efficient, funny, energetic, treated everyone equally. One of the best tour directors we have had over the years with Cosmos and other tour companies. Great scenery and we were fortunate to have such good weather for October. Learned a lot of information about the countries visited.

    A lot of time spent on the coach but some spectacular scenery & mostly excellent locations made it worthwhile. Included & optional excursion were in the main, very good. Breakfasts in Both Denmark & Norway were outstanding.

    Overall it was an excellent tour with a couple of issues by way of the food presented at a couple of the hotels and the locations (shopping malls/strips ) of some of the stops. On the plus side the driver (Martin) and the Tour Director (Tunde) ensured that the program ran smoothly. With a bit of a refinement on the itinerary this could be a really excellent tour.

    ok here we go the tour it self was just ok. the hotel in copenhagan was outside the cite and you needed to catch the bus all the time you wanted to explore the city or come back for a nap.. the two days spent traveling to odense and frederlkshavn was a waste of time with nothing in between to see , the tour should have gone from copenhagen to gothenburg so that more time could have been spent in oslo, all the other stops were great and the hotels we good along with the food, however the last two nights spent in the hotel at stockholm will still be stuck in my mind for awhile,, WHAT A DUMP unsafe !!!!! bags were stolen, the tour director told us 10 times to watch your bags and there is a huge sigh in the hotel lobby stating the same thing, right off the bat what does that tell you . the hotel rooms were hot as hell, they claimed that the air conditioner wasnt working but after i read reviews it hasn't been working in years no windows opened up for fresh air ,it smelled of mold you either got a highway view or a runway view it was bad and most everyone on the tour was complaining, it was so far from the city that i felt obligated to do the excursions so i could get into the city to see stockhom ,,the farewell dinner was unexceptable ,, i have been home for 4 days now and im still have not felt up to par traveler beware . ...
