Overall Rating

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. This was our fifth tour with Trafalgar and we had by far, the worst tour director we have experienced. I realise this is beyond your control and we have written to Trafalgar in relation to her attitude, sarcasm and overall unhelpfulness. The standard of optional excursions were well below our previous experiences with Trafalgar. Unlike other trips, where we have attended all available, we chose only two. Feedback from those who attended others was average. We did not get the impression that we missed anything worthwhile. The included dinners were below an acceptable standard with the exception of two, the Be My Guest Dinner at Niagara and the included dinner at Quebec. With 48 in the group, it was too much for the tour director to handle, and the space in the coach was uncomfortable for many within our group.

This was my first guided tour and it exceeded my expectations. Firstly, booking through Global Journeys was extremely easy, and Georgie answered any questions I had promptly. The itinerary was exactly what I was looking for. This was then enhanced by an excellent tour director, Ben, and very competent coach driver, Wali. Ben had great communication and people skills, and excellent knowledge of all places we visited. The highlights for me were Washington DC, Niagara Falls, Ottawa and Quebec City, as well as New York, which I was already familiar with.Our group was large, but friendly and considerate of others, and all tour members felt very included, so it was socially very enjoyable. Much fun was had during the tour's included dinners. Based on my experience I would highly recommend this Trafalgar tour, and would not hesitate to recommend and use Global Journeys in the future. Thanks Georgie.

I had a great time. The standard of accommodation and meals was excellent and the tour guide helpful and informative. I would have liked a bit more time in Washington as there was so much to see. As far as booking with Global Journeys, I would definitely book through you again. The whole process was very easy and we got a great deal on the tour cost. It was much simpler than having to go back and forward to see a travel agent in person.
