Essence of Austria     , WA, Australia, Jun 2023
Loved the itinerary and Kinga was an amazing guide. Loved the hotels location after Munich with some amazing views and of the track locations. The coach was disappointing prior to the overheating. Definitely not luxury standard. Was a Mercedes but modified to have extra rows of seats that were not overly comfortable - made very small leg room and made ...read more you sit twisted and uncomfortable for entire trip. Lucky we could sit on our own. Driver didn’t really engage with guests until breakdown when he needed our assistance/patience. Kinga made the trip with knowledge, humour and personality!
Spectacular Switzerland and Austria   , VIC, Australia, May 2023
This was such a wonderful 13 day Trafalgar tour of Switzerland and Austria in May 2023. The Alps were stunning, and the towns and villages we visited were beautiful, with so much history. I thought the optional tours that I did were well worth doing, even though they were pricey, but then Switzerland is a very expensive country to visit. The itinerary ...read more on this tour was great and I loved everywhere we went. Also, I think it's well worth spending a few days before or after the tour in Zurich, as there is so much to see there, and also a beautiful city, especially the Old Town and lake/river areas.

Our Trafalgar travel director, Dr Q, was absolutely fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable, and always there to help. The coach driver was excellent, and a very safe, cautious driver, especially when he was navigating our coach around the many narrow hairpin bends in the spectacular Alps. The hotels were great and well located, which is important. Thank you again, Tracey and Georgie from Global Journeys, with your help in organising yet another wonderful holiday.
Not so magical Christmas Markets   , VIC, Australia, Nov 2022
Unfortunately our tour in Innsbruck had a change of hotels in the middle of the tour on our free day and placed us on the outskirts of town due to apparently overbooking of hotel. There was nothing around to see or eat. Even though they compensated with the odd meal it was really repetitive. Pancakes, soup, pork etc becomes unbearable to eat after 5 ...read more days. I would not have booked this if I knew of changes as it defeated the purpose of the tour itinerary.

Then this tour was a tour within a tour there where 38 people booked as a group then there where 12 extras. So it was all about the others and we felt left out. I would not recommend this tour I could have done better by myself and cheaper and stayed in the heart of town as the brochure stated. The only upside was the change of the hotel in Munich. That was very nice and in a great position for our further travels. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable but some people walked all over him by not showing up on time and walking off. Finally it was a lot of money for what it was, thanks.
One of the best Germany tours we’ve done!     , QLD, Australia, Sep 2022
This trip was fantastic from start to finish. We had originally booked this tour purely because we wanted to experience Oktoberfest in Munich but the complete tour was so much more!. Everywhere we visited had some kind of festival going on, the atmosphere was great. The highlight for us (apart from the actual Oktoberfest which was amazing) was the tour ...read more to Eagles Nest. The whole trip was well organised and well planned. Our tour guide Cam had a great attitude and was definitely cut out for this role. We have travelled with Trafalgar many times and have never been disappointed!
