    advertising stated full breakfast and 3 - 3 course dinners, never got anything but buffet breakfasts and only 2 dinners which were buffets also. Hotels were Ok, but so far away from anything if you didn't take extra charge excursion, you were stuck

    Confirmed that group tours of over 20 people is not my style of travel in a bus. The driver was good; but, the detours for apparent road construction were a big frustration. The hotels were over-rated and the availability of wifi for the entire trip was inadequate. Breakfasts was generally adequate; but, optional trips/dinners were over-priced and greatly disappointing. Paying to use the toilets was a big joke on travelers/tourists. The tour guided mailed-in her effort on being helpful and informative - take a travel guide (a Guide who speaks German; but is actual from Great Britain is sub-optimal). The boozers seemed to enjoy themselves; but, a challenge to older/sick/limited customers. Several people on the trip seemed brain-dead and Cost Savers administrative effort was NOT adequate. You do not even list the Highlights of Germany tour in the following section - I see now why you push trip insurance; because "withdrawing" an offered trip AFTER CONFIRMATION and airline tickets have been purchased is a huge "inconvenience" and potential great financial burden.

    It was bad tour for a start.Too many optional fees to pay,amounting nearly to half of the tour cost.Do you call that value tour ?If not joining there is nothing left in the tour.The travel itinerary stated only two optionals in day 4 and 5 but not in reality!We were not given triple size room during the tour given twin size room.It appeared this tour is using trickery at its best.We want you to look into refund of some sort.Failing which I shall take the matter further.

    My guide is Andee Percy ... Both my husband and me with my sister Angela are in this trip. We would like to say a big thank you to Andee for his great first class service.. Not only is his service up to standard, his knowledge in every place we go mane us more knowledgeable about all the place we went with him... He takes care of our needs very effectively and also help find my lost sister in Germany.. His pre Hotel check ins is marvelous... never had we to wait or worry about waiting or any blunder in our rooms He does us everything we requested for and is very professional in all the extra trips suggested to us .. He leave it entirely to our decisions even after promoting the places of interest... We enjoyed it very much and will want to be back with Andee.. His coach system of seats arrangements deserved thumbs up ...

    It was a week of adventure for my wife and I as we celebrated an advanced 25th Anniversary. Trafalgar is a very organized company especially the Tour Manager, Roderick.
