“Optional tours need to be reviewed most were a waste of time. Hotels need to be closer to the centre of the city or town so when free time came it was wasted getting to and from the centre of town. Paid too much for before tour accommodation booked through trafalgar could have got it cheaper through booking.com. Also hotel offered shuttle service to and from the airport which trafalgar didn't tell us about so we organised a private pickup.”
“The highlight for me was seeing the Keukenhof gardens and the windmills in The Netherlands. I also enjoyed the Be My Guest dinner, and would have appreciated seeing more of the farm. Seeing Hitler's Atlantic Wall was also an amazing experience as I had no idea it existed. Each day was a great experience, so it is hard to select favorites.”
“We took all of the excursions offered and enjoyed them all.
The Be My Guest dinner at the DE Stamper in Belgium was superb. The owners were more than gracious, the food and drink were fantastic and we loved their dog! It was a great evening.
All of the local guides were excellent.”
“Overall an enjoyable trip. The only let down are the locations of hotel in Amsterdam and Luxembourg. At both cities the hotel locations are far from city center. The Trafalgar brochure promised city center location for hotels.”
“Too many days/too much time spent in Amsterdam/Brussels and not enough in Antwerp and Bruges. If the directory states we could go to Kinderdike windmills, Anne Frank house, etc, then let us go. Don't get our hopes up and then remove the optional excursions. We didn't know what we were doing when as the director didn't follow the Trafalgar itinerary...and the excursions weren't labeled as to when they were available so we could figure out if this were the trip/tour we actually wanted. Bad communication all the way around from start to finish for this tour.”
