The Treasures of France July 20173.0
Thank god for The Holiday Inn at Blois. Blissful air con in the heat.
The tour itself was thorough. Covered a lot of territory. Too much on days 2 and 5. Constantly on the move. Either omit something (WW2 stops) or add another day. The St Malo and Mont Saint Michel drive was ridiculous. A lot of doubling back. Unnecessary. Could be better.
The best day of the trip was the Be My Guest experience . Remy is a treasure. Fabulous afternoon.
Trafalgar sells the dream very well - brochures, marketing, staff. But, you omit the finer details - mileage, time taken to get places, the amount of walking required. At the end of the day, the onus was on us to ask more questions and do more research. Not take the brochure info at face value.
At the end of the day, we enjoyed ourselves. Except for the unexpected heat! However, it will be a long time, if ever, before we take another escorted coach tour. With Trafalgar. With any company. Read more

Bad service, during and post-vacation! And lack of respect for travellers October 20171.0
We ended up staying at CDG airport for TWO HOURS waiting for our scheduled monograms transfer. Our next step was to contact Monograms, but their offices were closed on Sunday. We decided to call our hotel and we used our phones to internationally call our hotel at 7 AM (which was our arrival time), and they mentioned that Monograms host was not there and to call back in a couple hours. The "local host" was not even at the hotel at 9 AM after our call! What a waste of our time, even just trying to get a hold of Monogram during our arrival. As an aside, even our local host did not even apologize for any lack of service or for their mistake of not picking us up at the airport, when clearly we paid for that service. She made it seem like it was our fault for this!
My husband PAID Monograms for the airport-to-hotel transfer prior to arriving in Paris, and in addition, we also PAID for our taxi to the hotel. Which meant we paid $70 to Monograms and $55 toward our taxi. We were only reimbursed for a taxi payment of $55. We paid $70 for a service never given to us (arrival transfer cost of $70 for the two of us), and after emailing customer service, we are now offered only $15 as a reimbursement for this $70 that we never used (on top of waiting 2 hours AND using our phone to internationally get a hold of our hotel host who was not available on time!)
Although the city of Paris was beautiful, this service from Monograms is unacceptable, and I will not refer Monograms to anyone and will let people know about the horrible service even post-vacation. Read more
