What our clients are saying about touring Italy & Sicily
“Best of Italian Lakes”
Trafalgar was as always great. The only complaint I have is The Villa Maree Hotel at Lake Garda. It’s 40 mins walk to the closest large town, although you can get a bus or Taxi and you cannot see the Lake. No tea making facilities in room, fridge not cold at all! Tour very busy if you take all the excursions but great sights, pretty scenery. Bolzano beautiful and Dolimites.
“Not for me”
I have been on other bus tours & was not very impressed with Cosmos. The bus driver Antonio was fabulous and our tour guide Kristina was very good also. The hotels were clean but the rooms were very small in some hotels and a lot were away from the main town so I had to book optional tours to get into the towns. Other smaller tours were within walking distance of towns so easy to get out of the hotel and see the local way of life. Breakfasts in the hotels were too hectic and regimented, also not ...read more enough selection of foods for me. Very disorganised when 43 people were trying to eat and be packed ready to leave within 30 minutes. Being a single supplement I found I got the worst rooms with very little room. WiFi on the bus and some rooms left a lot to be desired. I would not do another bus tour with Cosmos with so many people. I don't think it was value for money.
“Northern Italy Highlights”
The Information Session was very laid-back. It was conducted in the hotel foyer which was cramped and didn't provide adequate seating. Local guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Meals on optional excursions were not worth the price.
“Southern Italy, Sicily and Malta tour”
The tour leader in Italy was average, the Malta tour leader was excellent. The hotels in both Italy and Malta were generally disappointing. However the locations in Italy were breathtaking as was Malta. The highlights were staying in a Trulli house in Alberobello and in a cave house in Matera - these were the only good accommodations in the entire tour. Tour pace was hectic and rushed but there was enough free time if you didn't do every optional excursion. Global Journeys were excellent, providing ...read more good documentation and reminders. I would definitely use them again.
