ROMANTIC ROME

The hotel was as advertised. Good location, clean and tidy. We had to pay for breakfast but it was worth it. The flight times were awful so we had to pay more to upgrade. The included transfers were unorganised and late. Rome itself was amazing and everything we expected and more. I would still recommend this package but a bit more information on the transfers would have been better and more choice on the flights as we live in Bristol and could only fly from stansted.

MYSTERY

She spent time with me working out all the finer details. The original destination I didn’t want to go to and the flights were not very nice times. So she talked through other destinations and flight times.

MYSTERY

The person (Kate) who helped me with the booking and purchas was extremely helpful. The only issue I had was being told a bus from the airport would be available but wasn't, the taxi cost was expensive.

MYSTERY

I did not think it was value for money with all the extras ie hand luggage on Ryanair. Transfers to and from the hotel from the airport were expensive even though I prebooked also on the Berlin trip breakfast had to be added and that was also expensive.

MYSTERY

The hotel booked for us was very bad and in a bad state and very dirty! It felt like we was in a hostel but a bad one.
