Travel Agent sends his 82 year old father to Spain with two days notice

I’m quite used to arranging best Italian vacations and coach trips at short notice, but when my dad rang me to say he’d like a coach touring holiday leaving ‘very soon’, I wanted it to be perfect for him. I’ve trusted Trafalgar Tours for over 12 years since I first started offering them on the Global Coach Tours website. It was already nearing the end of October and there weren’t many tours about. Luckily Trafalgar has an extensive year round selection of tours and a winter tours programme.

On Thursday 21st October 2010  when dad called me, I suggested the Highlights of Spain and Portugal 13 day tour leaving on 23rd October. He agreed to book and within the hour it was all sorted, including me driving him to Manchester airport.

My wife Sue and I had been on the Trafalgar 16 day Spain Portugal and Morocco tour in October 2005 which includes all the same sights plus Morocco, so we knew he was in for an amazing time. Escorted coach touring is great for single people as there’s always someone to talk to and a group comradeliness develops. 2GO Travel is a unique experience.

He returned safely yesterday, full of praise for the tour, the weather, the hotels used and especially the tour director. He’s lucky to be still fit and well for his age, but nonetheless, it’s great to know he’s in expert hands with Trafalgar Tours.
