We got to do and see so much in the period of time. It's a very packed schedule so if you like sleeping in choose a different itinerary. There's lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes and clothing. The coach was immaculate with bathroom facilities. There were rest stops every 2 hour which was great. We had Kris from Belgium as a driver, very friendly and patient. The hotels were great only one which had very small rooms but quite clean and comfortable. Most had a fridge and coffee pot which was nice.

Got to see 7 countries and 13 days. Each day was well packed but we still had some time to shop and do stuff on our own. The hidden treasures were well worth it. I recommend every one to take ALL the optional tour. Well worth the money.

I am beyond happy about this trip. It was my first trip with Trafalgar, and I will for sure be booking another one. It was a fast paced trip, but we got to see all the highlights. Our guide, Julie, was truly a blessing. She made the trip absolutely amazing. She had something to say about everywhere, and the vibe she created on our coach was something else.
The hotels we stayed at were wonderful. The meals that were included were delicious. We were pointed towards great restaurants when meals were not provided. The optionals were all amazing and worth every penny. I loved being on this trip, and I can only hope everyone had as great of an experience as I did.
