What our clients are saying about their journeys through Austria
The Germany and Austria tour was indeed a fantastic experience led by a very experienced and compassionate tour director, Rob Early. Also, the brilliant driving by Venti was in itself a highlight. The itinerary was perfect with each day a non hectic exercise to see through to conclusion. Rob was in control of the schedule to ensure we stayed on track. The fellow travellers were a mixture, about 40% Australian, 40% American with the rest from an interesting array of countries. Hotels very good, ...read more Hilton seemed to have a slight edge on the others. Plenty of optionals. We generally selected dining options although the Eagles Nest was a notable exception. Food, coffee, chocolate, cakes all good. A great experience.
“Glorious scenery - mountains, lakes and forests”
My first tour with Albatross and will travel with them again. The itinerary was well thought out, and the hotels were in good, central locations, with character, though some of them had limited, or no, air conditioning, which is sometimes an issue with increasing temperatures in Europe. The group size of 17 was perfect, allowing for plenty of space on the coach, which was comfortable, clean and modern.
“Paul Wonmsbaecher made an ordinary trip great”
Thank you Hannah of Global Journeys for your help with our booking. Paul Wonsmbaecher our tour director was outstanding, he melded the guests together, making for a fun coach. His local knowledge, history and care for his guests was beyond reproach. We were disappointed that the excursion to Eagles Nest was cancelled and replaced with a Sound of Music Tour which was boring. Having travelled with Trafalgar many times, believe they need to review some of their excursions as they have become ...read more stale. A concern that was raised by other guests was the cost of the optional excursions. It was suggested that this should be advised at the time of booking enabling people to budget accordingly. (GJ. We agree with you, however "Optional Excursions" by their very nature are optional. Guests do not have to do any of them (and therefore there is no cost). Trafalgar could include all "optionals" in the itinerary, but then the price would go up, and you may end up paying for excursions that you're not interested in. Think of them as a way to tailor the trip to your interests. Optional Excursions are listed in the final documentation that guests receive three weeks prior to travel to allow them to budget accordingly before they leave. Listing optional excursions before then is not possible as they are not set and priced until the season starts - remember many clients book these trips up to 12 months in advance.)
“Austrian Lakes Christmas”
We stayed at the White Horse Inn, Lake Wolfgangese. The hotel was right on the lake, the view from our balcony and breakfast room was picture prefect. We had an incredible 8 days stay. Our room was extra large with a TV / dressing room as well. The staff were all very friendly and polite. The meals were wonderful, something to please everyone. The village is a beautiful little safe haven with plenty to do, at Christmas the streets are lined with Christmas stalls as well as their everyday shops. ...read more Surrounding villages are pretty and safe. The scenery everywhere is absolutely stunning, add a little snow and it's breathtaking.
