    1.5 - Rather poor

    Grand European 24 day holiday be very careful and research this as I am on it now. The included meals are of poor quality. The included dinners are very low budget meals and all on tour feel the same. Only 2 good rooms and the Barcelona motel is the worst I have ever been in. Absolutely no room to move, totally disgusted with it. So disappointed with this tour. Far to many places that has not much to see. Cosmos has done this on the cheap.

    4.5 - Excellent

    The trip experience actually exceeded my expectation, and the biggest factor for this positive experience was the professionalism of the tour director. I am sure that everyone in the group will agree. His name is Atilla Gallus from Budapest. He did his job really well and really looked after all the travellers. Not a single luggage ever left of misplaced full the whole 24-day duration of the trip. He made sure that every one feels comfortable during the long drives. Though we needed to move fast at times especially in the morning, but that was expected considering at the numerous locations we needed to visit. For me the price we paid is well worth it. In my own personal analysis, the success of this kind of trips will depend on the skills and dedication of the tour director. In our case we are lucky to have Atilla Gallus as our tour director. It's my first time to use Cosmos, but I will surely use it again for my next trip will be in central Europe with my wife again. Dante Afinidad Tour 5215 0622
