    4.0 - Good

    I throughly enjoyed every second of my tour with the exception a few hotels not located central to ares we stayed and nightly meals that we ate at these hotels. We had 5 ish nights the same dessert of ice cream with mostly fruit not gelato but ice cream(all vanilla) none of the regions famous desserts. All were disappointed and it got to be a joke among us

    I just finished my first Trafalgar tour, of the17 days Grand Italian Experience. It is difficult to know where to begin regarding this phenomenal experience. The tour was all that was promised and then some. Our tour guide Letizia had an unbelievable enthusiasm, and knowledge for Italy and tour. Her enthusiasm was contagious. I was so impressed with her level of understanding of the different regions of Italy and it's history. She is an excellent story teller, always keeping you engaged while informed. Letizia knew what we needed even before we we knew it. She displayed a balance of loyalty to "her family" as she referred to us, while representing Trafalgar in the most professional manner. She double and triple checked our needs, and displayed responsibility for all of us 24/7 for the duration of the tour. She assisted me at the end of my tour in finalizing a change of plans, when my brother joined me from the States for travel to our parents home town Italy. I learned and saw more things in 1 trip with Trafalgar and Letizia than if I had done this on my own 50 times over. When we left a 1 region I always thought it was my favorite, until the next one. Between Letizia with many "hidden treasures" and the local specialist of the area escorting us through the cities they loved, I was also in love. Every place was my favorite. Many times we received small tokens of memorabilia of the area we were in. It was evident Letizia and her local specialist through out Italy knew and respected each other. Again with there goal making sure we were having the best time of our lives. Never did we wait in lines for any part of the tour. We were often at the head of the line. We experienced private boat launches to some of the most beautiful areas of the world. We traveled by coach, train, boat and even cable car. I was a single woman who was traveling alone overseas for my very first tour. I never questioned my safety, or being totally on my own. Letizia and Trafalgar always kept us informed where to shop, what areas to travel, and safety precautions to utilize. I feel I have made 45 new world wide friends. Our driver Miguel, kept us on time, always with safety, and keeping our coach spotless. We never, and I mean never handle our luggage. I would placed it outside my hotel room where Miguel with the hotel porters would put it securely in the coach. Our rooms had some of the best views, whether it was Mount Vesuvius in Sorrento along Capri Bay or the Alps surrounding the Dolomites in Trento. Dinners were always excellent, entertaining at times with music, singers and dancing. The "Be Our Guest " dinners, dining at Machiavelli's Villa, and private dining at the Vatican Museum were the most memorable. We were also allowed to seek out other places of our own, with multiple suggestions from Letizia. On a scale of 1-10, I would give my Trafalgar experience 100. I hope if anyone is planning or just thinking about a tour they will look into Trafalgar. You won't be disappointed. People who were coming back to Trafalgar 2, 3, and 4 times. They can't be wrong. Sincerely Lucy Prawdzik
