We enjoyed all the places we visited, especially how we got priority as a tour group e.g. admission to the Vatican. Special dinners and venues were great. Quality of hotels was excellent. I have one complaint and that is THE COST OF THE OPTIONAL EXTRAS which are really an important component of the tour add up to a substantial amount by the end of the tour. They should be included as part of the overall tour cost, so that you know what the cost is when you book the tour. There should be ONE total fee at the start when we book the tour. It may be embarrassing if you cannot afford some of the optional extras because you have not budgeted for them. Please consider this suggestion. I will NOT go on another Trafalgar tour because it cost me and my wife an extra 1300 Euros for the optional extras which I believe were essential components of the Tour.
