        Service:

        Service rating : This was the first Tour we have done since 2009 when we went to Egypt. We normally book our own stuff but due to the language situation we selected Trafalgar. All the itinerary was flawless and the local guides very knowledgeable. Everything was first class, but that is what you

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : The tour director, local tour guides and bus driver were all excellent and courteous. The hotels were great and located in good locations.Product : The itinerary was a bit tight. For instance, more time in Moscow would have been good. The tour to the monastery could be eliminated

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Confusion as trafalgar communicated a change in hotel which turn out not to be accurate. I dont remember reading that charges are in euros. Optional excursions should be included. Why would you book a city tour on the bus during rush hour on a Friday afternoon? Lost free time waiting on people

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : It took 3 tries with Trafalgar's visa department to get proper visa invitation letters. Had we not checked, I'm certain our visa application would have been denied. Tour schedule was changed without prior notice causing us to miss out on certain activities because we had made

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : Trafalgar service was wonderful. Lasse was friendly and very well organised and the variety of activities was amazing. All the staff at hotels were helpful. At the Hilton in Moscow concierge organised taxis and notified us when they arrived so we didn’t have to stand in the cold
