“Overpriced Insight 6 Day Easy Pace Malta Tour”
There were 17 participants on this tour. The only included activities were the welcome dinner on the first night, a tour of the Valletta city centre then a short stop at the Blue Grotto for a quick look followed by a very good seafood lunch at Marsaxlokk on day one and a quick late afternoon tour of Mdina followed by dinner at a beautiful local restaurant on day four. There was an optional tour on day two to Gozo including a light lunch which cost 75 euros per person. This was far too expensive for ...read more what we got. There were other tours advertised for half this price. This meant that we had nearly two whole days to do our own thing. It was hot and the hotel was too far out of Valletta where there was nothing to do except lie around the pool. The hotel was basically a resort hotel. The cheapest way to get into Valletta was by local bus which only cost 2 euros but took about 50 minutes. Because the bus route was a loop the return trip took nearly one and a half hours unless you wanted to get off earlier and walk in the heat. We wanted to visit the War Museum but when we got into Valletta we found it was closed. We were not the only ones who thought that this tour was over priced. Other participants who had travelled with Insight were also disappointed. Apart from this the tour director was very good and we really enjoyed Malta.
Loved our trip and will be booking again in next 12 -18 months for another Cosmos tour. Most hotels were great. Could only find fault with one hotel which wasn’t that great. Tour Director, Daniela was great, fun and very informative. Our driver, Lorenzo was fantastic. He was very friendly and a good safe driver. We felt very comfortable with his driving. We had a great bunch of people on the tour and had a lot of fun together. Only one person on the tour that spoilt things for others as she was never ...read more happy with anything and complained constantly about everything. In the end no one could please her so it was best just to ignore the comments and have a good time.
“Not your typical Tuscany tour”
If you enjoy hiking into the mountains and are reasonably fit with a head for heights then you'll love this tour. The farm stay accommodation was excellent. The home-cooking was a gastronomic delight accompanied each night by locally produced red wine. Generous and varied buffet breakfasts were a great way to fuel up for the day's hiking. We made up our own lunches from the previous night's dinner leftovers. The Garfagnana Valley where our farm stay was located, is away from the tourist trail. The ...read more local towns are authentic and unspoiled by commercialism. Being a centre-based tour required some driving to reach each days hike. The local mountain roads are narrow, winding and steep in places so you'll need to be OK with the swaying motion of the minibus. The trails are generally well formed, easy to follow and not too steep. We've hiked to much higher altitudes on other trips but the views on this trip were still stunning and unforgettable. Complimentary transfers from and to Pisa airport were a bonus for Australian travellers. The 12 travellers comprising our group were a mix of Australians, English and Scottish aged 34 to 72, average age about 60. They were a friendly bunch, just big enough to get to know a few over a week of hiking. Our English guide resides at the farm for the hiking season and is part of the "family". Sara is the absolute best guide you could hope to have. She is caring, super organised, bilingual, very fit and has a deep knowledge of local trails, weather, flora, fauna and geology. We highly recommend the Exodus Walking in Tuscany trip. It's excellent value in a great location with a great guide, great accommodation and great food.
“Cosmos tour - Italy’s best”
We enjoyed all the travel stops, Venezia, Milan, Cinque Terre and most of all Capri. People travelling with us were fantastic! Coach host Patrizia and driver Vinchenzo were the best and couldn’t do enough for us. It was a busy on the go trip which was needed if you wanted to see so many interesting places. Accommodation was not always the best, in some places I’d rate it a 2 star while others were very good at 4 star. I would recommend Cosmos overall for an enjoyable and memorable tour.
