    Service rating : very professional during all aspects of booking and during holiday. We would use Trafalgar againProduct : nice medium activity schedule, with extra optional tours

    Service:

    Service rating : The guide Wolfgang Speil was disorganized. His temperment was not courteous or even, some days were better than others. He told a story (twice) about another guide he knew who, in his story anyway, complained about the behavior of US Army soldiers to their General resulting in

  • Trip:

    Service:

    Service rating : The trip was not organized as well as other trips we have taken with Trafalgar. Some of the optional trips either didn't fit in with the theme of the tour (Dachau) or weren't that interesting (Hitler's Eagle's Nest is basically a restaurant on top of a mountain, not much to see).

  • Trip:

    Service:

    Service rating : Knowledgeable, personable tour director (Wolfgang), who made sure that all travellers were safe. Accomodated several less able bodied travellers, and at one point, took two members of our group by taxi to the next stop, when they were unable to continue on the walking tour. Bus

    Service:

    Service rating : This was a wonderful trip. It was well-organized, with excellent hotels at each destination. I was particularly impressed by our local guides, notably Natasha in Salzburg who was extremely knowledgable, both about her city and about the movie "The Sound of Music". As this was
