Travel Europe like an insider and worry-free with Trafalgar

Prague with its beautiful bridges over the Vltava River that flows through the city centre. Dating more than a thousand years, the Czech capital is a city of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architectures.

IMAGINE this. You open the door to a cosy cafe on a wintry day to escape the cold.

The aromatic smell of freshly ground coffee beckons your senses.

You take a seat on a soft, comfortable chair by the window overlooking the sleepy, picturesque town, alongside your significant other – bathing in the glow of fairy lights and candles flickering all around.

Soft music is playing in the background. You’re feeling good because you need not worry or fuss over the little details of the trip. Everything is taken care of by Trafalgar, the European tour expert.

You can live in the moment, and immerse in the destination with the company of loved ones on the 14-day Scenic Scandinavia and its Fjords tour of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, where you discover the true story behind the Little Mermaid, board one of Europe’s most exciting train journeys and learn about sustainable farm life near Bergen.

That is possible with Trafalgar, whose guests tour differently to unlock the best of the world.

Founded in 1947 and based in Geneva, Switzerland, Trafalgar is the anchor brand of The Travel Corporation (TTC) – a family-owned business with over 100 years of expertise in creating award-winning travel and hospitality brands.

If Scandinavia isn’t your cup of tea, Trafalgar has more than 300 curated trips across 70+ countries and seven continents for you to choose from.

Let Trafalgar do the planning

The Tripzilla Excellence Awards 2022 winner for the “most innovative tour product” will conduct all the legwork for your post-pandemic travels.

From planning, booking to travel, everything is taken care of by Trafalgar.

Once you arrive at your destination, Trafalgar’s Travel Director will support you on your journey alongside local guides who will deepen your connection to the destination with must-sees to local secrets.

Spain/Portugal highlights

It would be difficult to find two more beautiful European countries to pack into a single vacation than Spain and Portugal. Both countries feature medieval towns and castles, lush wine regions, heavenly food, historic landmarks, and some of the most stunning coastline in the world.

On Trafalgar’s tour of Spain and Portugal, you get to visit the pilgrimage centre of Fátima, join a family on their stud farm in the Alentejo, and marvel at the icons left behind by Catholic kings and Moorish sultans, among other activities.

Multiple countries

Visiting multiple countries in Europe promises a sense of discovery and adventure as you explore a series of iconic sites, distinctive heritage, culture, language and cuisine.

Trafalgar’s Majestic Europe tour takes you to nine countries and 15 cities in 15 days, to soak up information about the Hapsburgs in Vienna, fairy-tale Prague and Vaduz, the little Liechtenstein capital. End the tour in the picturesque olive groves of Tuscany.

The Imperial Europe package is a 10-day tour of Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria, covering the cities of Prague, Salzburg, Budapest and Vienna.

Must-sees to local secrets

With more than 75 years as the world leader in travel, Trafalgar has nurtured deep connections in every destination.

Thus, travellers with Trafalgar get to enjoy exclusive skip-the-line access at not-to-miss sights like the Vatican or the Palace of Versailles, matched with off-the-path local favourites made possible by only those in the know.

Together, the must-see icons and local secrets are the special memories and life-changing experiences that make you feel like an insider, not a tourist.

More reasons to tour differently with Trafalgar

1. Experience each destination like a local: Make real connections with the local hosts and their families through Trafalgar’s one-of-a-kind Be My Guest experience.

Whilst nothing is more personal than enjoying a lovingly prepared meal in the home of your local host, Trafalgar’s Be My Guest experience is much more than local dining.

Not only will you get to view a destination from a local’s lens, you can learn about their craft, their way of life and their family heritage.

After a Be My Guest experience, you’re guaranteed to take home wonderful memories of the stories you heard from your hosts.

2. Quality assurance: Travel with the most-awarded travel brand in the world, esteemed by travel authorities and trusted by life-long customers.

Holidaymakers can access hassle-free travel with 24/7 support, guaranteed departures and flexible booking options.

Customise your itineraries; you can balance them out with planned activities and personal time.

3. Responsible travel: Developed in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Trafalgar’s Make Travel Matter tours bring travellers close to the locals in each destination to experience an authentic insight into their culture, learn about sustainable development while leaving a positive impact on the community.

For example, the Make Travel Matter tours of Namibia’s remote Omapaha village which is home to the Himba tribe have resulted in the establishment of a fund that could save lives in times of hardship such as drought or sickness.

On other tours, you learn about traditional rug-making in Verishen, Armenia; the weaving traditions of Cusco, Peru; and what washi paper craft is all about in Gokayama, Japan.
