    23 day from England to Paris fall 2018 with all options as well. Howard the guide was excellent, hotels were good, Itinerary was amazing. I'll now fill you in on the weaker parts of this tour. All included breakfast were better than expected with north american items at each one. The bacon at EVERY hotel was undercooked form some reason. Hotels may change from each trip but you can expect 3 to 4 star with the best hotel at Paris to end the trip. Amsterdam was terribly short free time. The group spent/ wasted 45 minutes in the diamond factory parking lot waiting to get going to Amsterdam. If they would delete the diamond factory tour it would be better. We needed a min of 2hrs in Amsterdam but only got 45 min free time. Not much time to see the city, find a place to eat lunch, order, wait and pay a bill. I'll now give you a big hint to save lots of time at lunch. We loaded up a backpack with stuff from the buffet breakfasts and used it for lunch. This saved time and money. Many in our group never had time to have lunch. After the colosseum in Rome we had 30 min free time to have lunch....good luck with that! Once our group noticed what my wife and I were doing for lunch most started doing it too. Be prepared to pay to pee at all stops in the northern countries. 0.5 to 0.8 euro per person so bring change. No lunches are included with this trip so you get some free to find a nice place. Typically you will be in a very nice tourist area so be prepared to pay. I think my wife and I spend $100 Euro for one of our lunches with a couple of drinks. Switzerland takes Euros so you don't need swiss francs. I would highly recommend this tour even though it is a whirlwind trip. I had been to Europe several times on business but this tour showed me many things I missed. Cheers

    Overall excellent tour package for anyone who has never been to Europe or less adventurous and prefers to spend the energy enjoying the journey than planning during it. A must travel for anyone who has a interest in either European history/architecture/food/seeing a mixture of cosmopolitan and little towns. Was initially worried of how our 6 year son would cope, but thanks to the excellent friendship within the people on the same group and our excellent Travel Director Kassie who championed everything smoothly that gave us parents to enjoy the journey even better.

    During 2016 summer we were extremely fortunate to have Cassie Jones as our tour guide for our Greater European Trafalgar Tour.. Cassie is personable,highly organised and switched on to the needs of the whole group as well as preferences of each traveller as an individual. Nothing was too much trouble as she assisted special sightseeing and sporting interests. Cassie provided local tips and knowledge pointing out unusual and interesting sights. Her incredible knowledge of local history and highlights was shared with us throughout the tour..Cassie frequently gave up her own precious free break time to assist us eg. Assisted in making bookings, replacing stolen medication or sought out gifts for the group or those celebrating special occassions. Cassie displayed a great sense of humour making our trip even more memorable and fun. As we tired she was able to lift our energy levels and spirits. Cassie provided us with a range of music and selection of topical videos for those long hours on the coach. Cassie is knowledgeable and an excellent communicator . She teamed well with our respected and skilful driver Pierdro and liased professionally with local tour guides and staff of tourist attractions. Cassie is an excellent problem solver as well as having insight and action plans to avoid potential problems.Thanks to Cassie for making our tour with Trafalgar our greatest lifetime memory and so much fun.

    Our tour was fantastic and one of the reasons was Kassie she was amazing and made sure everything was just right. Her knowledge of everywhere was was amazing and no one could have created a better tour. Even down to helping people with special requirements was no trouble for Cassie or retrieving belongings left behind at the last stop. What an amazing person Kassie is and how lucky were we all to have her on out amazing trip of a lifetime.

    My husband and I have just completed the Grand European Tour with Trafalgar Tours (April-May2016). It was the most amazing experience. The Tour Director Howard Hazekamp was fantastic and went above and beyond what was expected of him. His knowledge and willingness to accommodate all of the guest was priceless. He is a credit to Trafalgar Tours. The accommodation and food was good. The tour itinerary was great although not a lot of free time as we also did a lot of the optional extras but we expected it to be very busy. We would not have experienced or seen all that we did if we tried to do it on our own. Very well organised and no hiccups at all. The coach driver was very professional(great driver), polite and alway presented the coach in an exceptional manner. I would highly recommend Trafalgar Tours it was great. Cant wait for our next Trafalgar Tour.
