Europe – WW1 & WW2 sights – client review

Whats it’s all about

My friend and I, two inexperienced travelers, flew to Dubai then London and joined a Trafalgar Tour of WW1 & WW2 sights in Europe, as my grandfather and father had been in the NZ Army forces fighting in Europe.

Trafalgar was a wonderful way to go. The hotels and places we went to were amazing including scenic river cruises in London, Paris and Amsterdam. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us informed about each area we were in.

We then flew to Rome and went on a cruise of the Greek Islands with Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas ship, wonderful places and experiences.  Glennis had organized everything so well, we knew what was happening next all the time and there were no snags.  Afterwards a trip to Belfast to visit with my son and two grandchildren whom I hadn’t met, that was so special.

Unforgettable highlights

Everything really …. the Moulin Rouge in Paris was part of the Trafalgar Tour, Rome was mind blowing … all the history. The Greek Islands were so beautiful …everything was unforgettable.

Insider tips

  • Don’t pack too much!  I didn’t use everything I took.
  • Get to airports with plenty of time as airports like Dubai are vast!

Travel essentials

  • Camera with a large SD memory card
  • A bag that can go across your body to keep your hands free
  • Comfortable shoes are a must.

Be aware

  • Pack things you don’t want confiscated into check in luggage i.e. I forgot about the lovely bottle of Santorini wine in my hand luggage!!!!
  • Places like Rome are known for pick pockets.
  • Remember the name of your hotel and address – pick up a card at the front desk in case you get lost and need to get a Taxi back!
