    Trafalgar commented on this review
    Thank you for taking the time to share your review of Sydney's Food and Wine Discovery guided holiday. To begin, we regret to hear of any miscommunication that may have occurred before the start of your trip, and we hope that this rare instance did not take too much away from your experience with Trafalgar. Our guests' satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us, so please rest assured that this feedback has been shared with our Reservations Department to make sure that the necessary steps are taken to ensure a better experience in the future. Furthermore, as is common at most hotel accommodations, pricing is based on double occupancy; therefore, solo travellers who wish to have a room to themselves are offered the choice to pay a single supplement, which guarantees their privacy. This supplement covers the cost difference between half of a shared double room and a single which naturally costs more. On another point, we note that there were certain aspects of the itinerary that you felt could have been improved upon. Here at Trafalgar, we take our guests’ feedback very seriously, so please be assured that your comments are being given the full attention they deserve to establish what potential improvements we might make going forward with this particular trip. That said, even though our coaches rarely travel for longer than a couple of hours without a visit or photo opportunity, it is sometimes necessary to travel for longer between destinations due to the sheer size of the country. Despite the above, we still hope that you have taken lots of lasting highlights from your time away with us, and that we will have the chance to improve your impression of our guided holidays in the future.

    Trafalgar commented on this review
    Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on the Costa Rica Eco Adventure guided holiday. We always like to know where we are going right and where we could be making improvements. To begin, we are concerned to hear that you may have found the size of your group to be too large at certain points on this trip. All of our trips and itineraries are designed to comfortably accommodate up to fifty guests at a time, and during peak seasons, we do often operate at full capacity. Nevertheless, we appreciate your concern and have shared this with our Operations Department for their consideration. To continue, we would like to apologize for any discomfort you seem to have experienced whilst on-board the coach; this is something that we will certainly raise with our Transportation Department for their review and to establish what improvements might be made going forward. Furthermore, we regret to read that you did not find the hotels to be conveniently located and we are sorry this had affected your appreciation of the destinations visited. Nonetheless, it's great to read that you enjoyed discovering the beautiful hand-picked destinations on our carefully crafted itinerary, and what's more, it's great to know that it was all in the good company of your dedicated and knowledgeable Travel Director. With that said, we are always striving to make our experiences even better. Therefore, we hope that you will join us again on another of Trafalgar's guided holidays in the future when we can demonstrate all of the new great elements that we have included in our itineraries.

    Trafalgar commented on this review
    Thank you for sharing feedback, as this first-hand insight is very important to us. To begin, we are sorry that you felt not enough time was spent at the iconic sights in the different cities visited on the itinerary. As we try to cater to our guests’ personal style of travelling, we provide a variety of trip styles which allow for different ways to explore these unique destinations. Having that in mind, the European Whirl is one of our ‘Discoveries’ trip style, which focuses more on exploring several countries at a faster pace. Therefore, in order to arrive at all of the destinations and complete the itinerary on time, we have to allocate a specific amount of time at each location. However, we appreciate you sharing your thoughts regarding the pace of the itinerary with us and as a result, we have passed your comments on to our Product Development Team for their consideration going forward. That said, we still hope that you have taken lots of lasting highlights from your trip, and that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you on another of Trafalgar’s guided holidays in the future.

    The tour guide, Delma, was excellent: very informative and excellent. The itinerary was rather boring.
    Trafalgar commented on this review
    To begin, we are saddened to read that the itinerary did not meet your expectations on this occasion, given that the complete satisfaction of our guests is an absolute priority. Please rest assured that your feedback will be forwarded to our Product Development Department for further review as a result. Despite this, we are pleased to know that our Travel Director has provided a more accurate representation of the quality of our standards, and we hope you will consider travelling with Trafalgar again, and give us the chance to improve your impression of our guided holidays in the future.
