Deciding between tour companies- Trafalgar vs Insight

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend are planning a trip for fall 2015 or 2016 and he really wants to visit Germany and I want to visit London, Paris and Prague so our tours are limited for options. I think for our first trip, a tour with a tour company would be ideal vs on our own but I would be okay with exploring that option. Just don't know how to go about planning transportation with that.

Our first option is with Trafalgar: European Adventures. 16 day tour.
They do not have rates out yet for 2015, but they visit United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Austria and Switzerland. The starting rates is $2,650 per person plus airfare. It also includes 12 buffet breakfasts, 2 ful breakfasts and 5 three course dinners.

Second option is with Insight Vacations: European Breakaway. 11 day tour.
They do have rates out for 2015 and we were looking at September 10-20, 2015.
That tour visits United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, Germany, Switzerland. The starting rates is 3,365.00 per person plus airfare (!). It includes 10 buffet breakfasts, 1 Dine-Around, 1 Celebration dinner.

My concern is; how is a Trafalgar tour?? how about Insight? It seems like Insight has alot more options included vs Trafalgar but I'm not sure what's best. I feel like there has to be a reason why Trafalgar is soo much cheaper but has a ton more countries and days vs Insight Vacations. The reviews on Insight Vacations are all super positive and there are plenty of reviews vs Trafalgar which has 2 reviews, one positive and one super negative.

I would appricate any feedback anyone can give me regarding these tour companies, or alternatives you might have.

Thank you!
