The price for this tour was good, but some of the optional tours were expensive for what they were. Otherwise meals at the Hotels were o.k. But don t bother with the picnic breakfast on the last day, if you have an early flight that is.
we loved the interesting people we met on the tour from cosmos and we like the standard of the hotels - it was a lovely holiday in such a lovely place
After our plane being cancelled and we lost a day of our holiday and also a tour on the Monday Morning plus having to pay out for a taxi we must admit the holiday was very good loved the sights the hotels were good our tour guide Andrea .B was brilliant and very knowledgable also the coach driver if i was to say anything spoilt it it was the food it was not very nice in the hotels or on an excursion.
Excellent hotels all bar one. Can't remember name but was at Lake Garda. The walls and curtains in our room were a little grubby and air con didn't work so was extremely hot.
Excellent tour guide and coach driver. Included and optional tours were good value.
Apart from 1 poor hotel, holiday very good
the tour could be a little long (10 days)
