“Best of Eastern Europe in 9 days”
May is the perfect time to visit Eastern Europe, beautiful weather and no crowds. Regensburg, Prague and Budapest at night were the highlight. Travelling single felt safe and although it goes at a very fast pace, if you don’t have much time, this is perfect. We had a good group of fun people on the trip which made it very special. There could be more fun and dancing/singing entertainment in general. Although we were on a more mature Trafalgar group, it does not mean we do not want to laugh and ...read more sing and dance. I was very happy with Madeline organising my trip. Thank you and looking forward for another great fun trip in 2021.
Travelled on the Eastern Discovery tour with Insight and can recommend it, as a introduction to eastern Europe. Coach and hotels lived up to expectations, except an older hotel in Corfu, however the location of this hotel more than addressed its short comings. Highlights would be the Walled city of Dubrovnik, and the Greek Islands. Would recommend including the optional post tour cruise.
“Well organised tour with excellent guide.”
Bunnik tours are always well organised. The Moscow & St Petersburg part of the tour was amazing but intense. To complete the programme required commitment! The local guides were excellent and well informed and nice! Daiga our Latvian guide for the whole tour was excellent, knowledgeable and no nonsense. The weather was stunning throughout. Highlights: Swan Lake at the Hermitage theatre, St Petersburg, Rundale Palace in Latvia, Baltic States generally, Czech Republic especially Cesky Krumlov, ...read more Prague. The hotels were generally excellent - the Arts Hotel in Krakow was outstanding. It was a packed trip, a cold went through us all causing greater or lesser debility. The members of the tour group were a mixed bunch, most lovely, but there’s always a few less happy souls! I myself met a couple from a place I lived in years ago & our girls had gone to school together & we had acquaintances & friends in common so that was fun! Negatives: crowds even at that early stage of the season. Physical requirements of the tour too much for some. Some tour members just inexplicably negative. Singapore Airlines Premium economy- would not recommend to anyone, food poor, facilities disgusting as no separate toilets for that class & will work harder & longer to fly business! I loved my stopover in Singapore- used the card & went to the attractions & arrived home far less jet lagged.
“Fabulous and thought provoking”
This was a wonderful trip with a great group of people and a fantastic guide. I was not fully prepared for the emotional journey I was about to undertake, visiting Hungary, Poland and Berlin in Germany was particularly enlightening. I think everyone should make the journey to Eastern Europe at some stage, to learn about the horrors of the holocaust and the difficulties of communism. It certainly made us appreciate our blissful lives in Australia, having never had to deal with such terrible pain. ...read more The guide through Auschwitz was particularly sensitive and she really brought home the ordeal and terror that the Jewish community and others, endured under the Nazis. As I said, it really is a must for us all who enjoy freedom. The accommodation was all good and our guide, Dean, worked so hard to make the journey memorable. I would recommend travelling with Trafalgar, and certainly booking through Global Journeys, specifically Hannah, who made all the arrangements for us without a hitch.
