18th December 2017
Mrs Alison Appleton

The holiday was very good and we saw many beautiful places.I do not rate the holiday as excellent as all the hotels were a long way out of the town centres so it was not possible to go walking out to the historic and tourist locations in the evening. Some of the hotels were very basic. All the other guests on the coach who had booked direct with Cosmos had nice booklets containing all the holiday details (including optional excursions) plus proper luggage labels. We didn't have anything like this and some feedback for Archers is that these touches make the holiday experience so much better. Not Archers fault but we had flights home cancelled/connections missed/taxi pick up missed so a horrendous journey home.

Holiday hectic although we expected this because of the schedule. Did not get to see much of Munich because of the traffic on the way there. If we had done all the optional excursions we would not have had much free time to see Prague, Vienna and Budapest. It would have also added considerably to the cost. Tour guide very good and knowledgeable. A wonderful way to see these cities. Will have to go back to see what we did not have time for.

Mrs Susan Picton

Prague tour guide hated tourists and had a monotone voice,was definitely in the wrong job. Prague hotel was to far from the city. Staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. Included dinner was a poor quality buffet,not good!! Cosmos customers got proper luggage tags and a comprehensive booklet of holiday information given to them. Archers customers got diy a4 luggage labels that were inadequate and a joke, and minimal self printed holiday info.why not treat all customers the same??
