So very beautiful, mountains and lakes and interesting excursions to towns, villages and palaces
Lovely location. Only comment - less is more. I would like not to have gone to Lugano but prefer to spend more time in Lake Maggiore
We were dropped off in Lugano and there as nothing much to do there.
would have been better if you tell your hotels to have tea and coffee making equipment in the rooms ,and irons and ironing boards
All transfers, excellent. Tour director & driver - excellent and very helpful. Included tours & optional extra tours well organised and enjoyed Hotel in Torbole was never 4 stars (!) but otherwise good accomodation
The overall tour was very enjoyable and the tour guide excellent, the only thing that let it down was the hotel in Lake Garda, the room was very small and grubby and the air con was not very efficient, also the evening meal did not look good so we went out to eat, the other hotels on the tour were very good. Cosmos need to check the hotels they use, not only the main areas but also the rooms.
For the past 15 years we have visited countries with worldwide landmarks, buildings etc. but the Lakes ever beautiful does not come within this category. I do the videoing and my wife the photographs. When we return I transfer the video onto a DVD with added commentary and the photographs in an album both of which we watch during cold winter months. Apart from water and a few unknown buildings there was little to video or photograph.
