Stride Take

Trafalgar is a name many seasoned travelers will recognize. A branch of the Travel Corporation, whose brands all enjoy stellar reputations, Trafalgar has offered classic journeys for over 70 years.

Planning for the weekend

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Trafalgar is a premium group tour operator, with the motto “See the world from the inside.” They tout the opportunity to meet, talk, eat and drink with locals. You’ll get to know chefs, artisans, historians, and farmers as you explore what makes the destination truly special. Trafalgar has a strong reputation, having been around since 1947 - putting them right at the pinnacle of when many premier guided tour companies were established.

You’ll enjoy small groups, cultural experiences, and local touches traveling in comfort and ease.

Who Travels With Them?

While they offer many trip styles, suitable for travelers of all ages, their classic touch is popular among older travelers. Classic doesn’t mean old fashioned or tired - simply a bit less on the active adventure and more on the historic sights and cultural experiences. They have a number of family focused tours, as well as tailored trips for special interests.

Their trips cover a wide range of budgets, though the majority tend to be mid-range. They do offer deals and even have a unique “Cost Saver” feature that allows you to see more inexpensive trips broken down by ratings and cost clearly.  

Where Do They Operate?

You’ll find trips to Europe, USA & Canada, South America, Africa, Asia, Australia & New Zealand.

While the destinations are widespread, Trafalgar doesn’t stray too far off the beaten path.

In South America, they travel to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Peru. In Africa, they go to Egypt, Morocco, and South Africa. In Asia, it’s Cambodia, China, Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam. And in the Pacific, Trafalgar visits Australia and New Zealand. Wherever you go, you can expect high quality guides and accommodations, and smooth travels in general.

They also have a number of religious themed tours, including trips that include excursions to Oberammergau, Bavaria. Once a decade this small town presents a Passion Play, and Trafalgar has had special access since 1970. The next time to experience this unique event is 2020.

How Does it Work?

Trafalgar trips involve comfortable transportation and accommodation. Most meals during the tour are included. Trips often include free time during which you can explore on your own, with suggestions from your expert guides.

Why Travel With Them?

Trafalgar has a solid reputation, and they stick to what they’ve done well for over 50 years. They focus on the classics, providing a culturally rich perspective as you meet locals along the way. Niche tours based on specialized interests are also something they are proud to offer. Trafalgar is where you go to have the essentials and logistics take care of seamlessly while you sit back and enjoy.

While they appeal to an older crowd due to their history and recognizable name, Trafalgar has an impressively well integrated social media presence. Trips on their site are accompanied by instagram posts from real travelers who have been on the same tour, using the hashtag #SimplyTrafalgar.

Old or young, couple or single, traveling Simply Trafalgar inspires confidence, comfort, and enjoyment.
