    Yes, when we arrived in London, our transportation to the hotel was not there. I called multiple phone numbers and finally reached our travel service, he indicated I was not on his scheduled pickup. I ended up taking a taxi after waiting for 90 minutes. We also had to change hotel rooms in Paris on three separate occasions because of a lack of air conditioning. This was very inconvenient, and without any adjustment to our pricing,

    The balance between guided tours and free time was just right. In London our hotel was in walking distance of many historical sites. Touring Windsor Castle ang then all the little shops below Windsor made for an enjoyable day. In Paris, so many memorable moments; the guided tour of the Louve, and dinner in the Eiffel Tower. But my most memorable moment was the evening cruise on the Seine River and the view of the Eiffel Tower at night, especially at 10pm, when something magical happens. A separate set of lights on the tower start to twinkle like stars. Just breathtaking.!!!

    The majority of the trip was excellent, but I have three separate problems 1 the night of the first dinner , the food was awful. At my back there was a high bar. Bartender broke a glass causing glass shards to go down my back, inside and outside my dress. I jumped up and my seat makes helped me remove shards. I was fine. No one apologized-restaurant or Benn 2. People end of evening I’ll I was still upset and forgot my phone ion the table. I told Benn when we were riding back to hotel. He told me to hop in cab across the street and go back and get it I took cab back with a friend and it was ok. I feel he should have taken cab and I could have paid for it —- not safest choice 3. At Versaille , my Vox battery was dead within 20 minutes I was in tjj hi ousands of people. I volunteer find the group and had no way to communicate. After looking fo 30 minutes I had no choice but to locate bus and have him call Benn Suggestion:.have Benn stay a predetermined spot for emergencies Request:full cash refund gor Versaille tour

    Our ride from the airport in London was late. We looked all over for a sign with our names. Finally, we located her. No sign. In London we went to Westminister Castle - that was a waste of money. We saw Queen Mary's doll house - one room with a king's bed and a room with paintings. The Chapel was closed because it was Sunday. In Paris loved the Cabaret, dinner at the Eiffel Tower. Then this is where the tour turned bad. We went to the Louve. We were split into two groups. Our group had a guide who spoke very poor English - people with and without hearing aids could not understand her. She spent long periods of time on one statue. So here comes the real bummer. We all wanted to see the Mona Lisa - that's why we signed up for the tour. Well, our guide took a vote - did we want to stand in line to see it. We all voted yes. Evidently, she didn't want to stand in line - she took us right by it - trying to get pictures of it on our way thru 4 rows of people. The more I think about it - the angrier I get. This is a once in a life time trip. The one thing you want to see most and you are walked right by it at a distance. The other group got to see it up close - their guide spoke great English -she stood in line to see the Mona Lisa. They had a great time. That kinda marked the trip - very poor for me. Now when people ask about my trip - what comes up first - the Mona Lisa - not the Cabaret or the Eiffel Tower. It is really too bad that one guide can destroy a trip like it did. I blame Collette for this - why? they should have an itinerary for their guides. They are the people we paid. We would have been better off going on our on to the Louve - spend the amount of time seeing what we wanted to see. It was a rushed tour - we had the afternoon off - we all would have liked to stay longer. We were told we could stay longer but we would be on our own to get back to the hotel.

    Thurs. Sept. 19 Landed on time. Took about an hour to get to baggage for pickup. Lack of signage to explain you cleared customs first and got luggage at the very end made it a bit confusing. Got to Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel around 12:30 and we were pleased our room was ready. We attempted to nap during afternoon but weren’t that successful. The hotel was very nice, comfy beds, great in-room coffee, lots of ports and a very large TV. The only negative is that it’s off the beaten path and not really close to the heart of the city or the major tourist attractions. Met in lobby for Opening Dinner and a night at the Paradis Latin. The cabaret show went from 8:00-11:15; way too long for most of us who did not sleep on plane and were going on over 30 hours of no sleep. We thought we were done after the first set at 9:30. First night should be an opening dinner and that’s it. My beef bourguignon was rubbery and a real challenge to cut. Fri. Sept. 20 Bus tour of Paris comprised the morning. Tour guide was very knowledgeable with respect to the artwork and the political machinations behind how they were infused with Greek mythology to make Louis IX appear to be on par with the gods. Sat. Sept. 21 Long and busy day. In the morning we did the optional tour of the Louvre. For me, the value of an organized trip is being able to have timed tickets and not have to wait hours to get in. Tour guide here was also good. Back to hotel for another quick break before going to Eiffel Tower and dinner cruise on the Seine. Our Malaysian Eiffel Tower tour guide was extremely personable. This visit wasn’t managed well. The group got split into two elevator trips to observation deck. Being in the second one, we had less than 10 minutes to look around and get pictures. That’s absurd. Dinner cruise was nice. We were supposed to have dinner on Eiffel Tower but a switch had to be made. This was actually a better activity. Food better, but nothing exceptional. Accompaniment was keyboards, guitar and female singer. They were fine. Sun. Sept. 22 We ate breakfast and then got on the bus to go to the EuroStar train which would take us under the English Channel to London in 2 ½ hours. Once at the train station in Paris, things got disorganized. I believe we were told to remain on the bus; however, people started getting off the bus and no one stopped us from doing that. We watched as other buses came, luggage was put on carts and taken to the train. Eventually our luggage was removed from the bus and taken away. We eventually arrived at the Leonardo Royal Tower Bridge Hotel which was also a great hotel. This one is in a great location - less than a ½ mile from the Tower of London. The room was very big, very comfy bed, couch, nice bathrobes. Not as many ports and a much smaller TV screen. The concierge desk would assist if asked but certainly did not go out of their way. Fortunately, our bus driver told us to go to them to get a 20% discount card for a meal at the Mayfair Chippy, a great mall chain of restaurants with very good fish and chips. Mon. Sept. 23 Breakfasts were better here - salmon, omelette station and individual sunny-side up eggs already prepared. Morning was a bus trip through the City of London. We got out and walked around Buckingham Palace to see the brigade marching there to take up their guard post. We drove by them back at the barracks bathing their horses. We had a lunch break at Harrod’s. The group broke up in the afternoon. We went to Westminster Abbey while others went to the Churchill War Rooms. Our guide was Duncan, who also is an actor. He was the best guide of the trip - very knowledgeable, engaging and a lot of fun! Seeing the prominent people buried and/or with memorials there - Oliver Cromwell, Wm Shakespeare, Stephen Hawking - was pretty impressive! Tues. Sept. 24 We took the optional trip to Windsor Castle. Up until this day, we had been very fortunate with the weather. In fact, Saturday in Paris was sunny and around 80 degrees. This was our day for erratic weather - torrential downpours followed by sunshine. London traffic is almost as bad as Rome, so it took a while to get to the castle. Mirza, our tour guide, was out of his element here. He said there was an outdoor introductory tour that would take us to the grounds where we could take either a historic or ceremonial tour - both inside the staterooms. We went to the meeting point for the outside tour waiting in the rain for their guide to show up. Mirza made inquiries and was told they’d be there. We waited for 15 minutes after the start time and, with no guidance from anyone, we bagged it and went to the stateroom tour which leads you sequentially through both the historic and ceremonial tours (i.e., they are not separate options as we were told - it’s one seamless tour). We got back midafternoon and had a little over an hour to rest up before our farewell dinner at Brasserie Blanc. Unfortunately, it was a bad way to end the tour. The waiters were totally disorganized, we were packed in like sardines even though three people did not show up, and the food was mediocre at best. Many were upset we had to walk ½ mile to get there, but traffic would take forever. One couple took a cab and they were the last to get there. Mirza handed us survey forms to complete with our names on them and no envelopes. That did not sit well with us. We are accustomed to the provision of envelopes and the option for anonymity.

    This was my first tour ever, so I judged my ability to go and enjoy it based on the fact that it was rated as a '2' in terms of steps and stairs, because I walk with a cane. Maybe if the coach hadn't broken down in front of Mayor of London's house so we walked in the rain to Buckingham Palace and later did the Westminster Abbey tour after being picked up by new bus. The trek to Buckingham was more of a sprint than a walk (I guess due to the rain). A fellow tourist with a 'fit-bit' app announced later on the replacement coach that we had walked 7,780 steps, plus whatever we walked on the Abbey tour. Not a fan of the hotel, at all. Loved, loved, loved Paris. Loved the hotel, loved the Paradis Latin, Eiffel Tower, the opportunity to photograph Arc d'Triumph up close and personal. The Louvre!!!!! Loved the food in London, Windsor, and Paris! Great people in our group; they were thoughtful, kind, helpful and understanding of my physical challanges. Ambulating was way easier in Paris. I even took a taxi that waited for me while I shopped for a carry-on bag. Loads of great information, both historical and cultural, afforded to us by the local tour guides. They were exceptionally knowledgeable, even attracting strays from other tour groups, due to the consistancy with, and obvious love of, the history and art that I have studied and/or absorbed via PBS and other specials on British and French history, culture, and art. The average rating for the accommodations is due to the fact that I was not at all happy with the London hotel. The security staff seemed menacing to me., and would not respond to questions, only poiinting or using a shooing hand gestures. The water dispenser on our floor was out of order, and the houseman filling pitchers for other rooms on my floor totally ignored my request to have my pitcher filled. Finally had to buy from restaurant. The elevatores kept breaking down... thank goodness one-at-a-time. The Marriot lived up to its name, reputation and more.

    We could have used more time at each stop at the landmarks, but that is not Collette's fault - the traffic in London was horrendous and it just seemed to take extra time to get anywhere. Our guide, Jeff Mullen, was knowledgeable, affable and patient. Our local guide in Paris, Natalie was fun and knowledgeable, as well. Nothing to do with Collette, but if the climate continues the way it is, I would not go again in mid-July. It was unpleasantly hot and when there were crowds, most attractions, it was miserable having to stand in line and wait (at Versailles, for an hour), even though we had group priority. I would have liked to been able to stop at the Arc de Triomphe and take some pictures. Not sue if why we didn't was due to time constraints and traffic or they just don't normally stop there - I think that should have definitely been a landmark we would have liked to have seen other than from a moving bus.l

    The trip was lovely and my tour guide, Becky, would receive 20 stars if I could give that to her! The only reason why I’m giving 4 instead of 5 stars is because my mom and I had to add extra days in order to experience some of the things you only drive by during the actual tour. For example, Collette drives by the Tower of London and if we hadn’t booked an extra day we wouldn’t have had time to go in it and see the Crown Jewels. Also the hotel in Paris was REALLY hot and uncomfortable; everyone thought the air conditioning was broken but it wasn’t! In contrast, everything about the London hotel was perfect; they were so hospitable and the location was beyond convenient. Nevertheless, my mom and I are in the process of booking a second trip through Collette so they did something right!

    Our local tour guide for London got us to the front of seeing the old guard, band, and horses, marching from the guard-changing. I never thought I'd be able to see any of it, having seen the crowds, and being 5'3"! Loved our tours to Notre Dame and Versailles with our local guide in Paris. She was fabulous and so knowledgeable.

    We had planned extra days post tour in London based on the hotel we were slated to stay at, they switched hotels. Sub par hotel, and location.Would have loved more free time post visits to site. We had hours to kill and were not allowed just a few minutes to explore around the exhibits, such as gift shops or neighboring villages.Tour manager was sympathetic but claimed he had no flexibility due lease time on our bus.

    Our tour manager was just that- a manager rather than a guide. She was very nice but we were left on our own with instructions to " call" if we needed anything! The hotel employees were unable to help us! We loved the tours and dinners!

    Felt that an addt day in London and an addt day in Paris would of been beneficial and given us a chance to do more sightseeing. Seemed a little too rushed. The hotel in Paris was nice but I was disappointed as I had brought my granddaughter to Europe for her first trip and we had NO view from our hotel room window. Hotel in London was a good choice and their breakfast was wonderful. The breakfast in Paris was just ok; would of preferred to eat in the dining room of the hotel like we did in London. Have traveled with Collette before and would travel with them again.

    Paris accommodations left something to be desired. Our tour guide, Ms. Bisbash, was excellent and despite being ill, gave everyone first class service. She called us all by name and accommodated everyone's needs as best possible. I did think the "tour" would be more than a drive by of most of the areas. Fortunately, we had enough free time to go back and see most of the highlights we breezed past.

    We thought we would have time to see each of the places mentioned on the tour guide. However, we just drove by and never stopped. There is no way we would have been able to go back to the places on our own. There just wasn't time when you consider the amount of time it would take to get back to those places. We were already there on the tour bus. Getting off for 10 or 15 minutes would have at least given us the feeling that we had seen those places.

    Really enjoyed the tour of the Eiffel Tour. Wish I had more time there. Hotels were good but breakfast in Paris was not acceptable. Bacon was raw. I was looking forward to the play in London. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is not appropriate for a group of older adults. I did not waste my time attending. The tour guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and great personality. Food in the London restaurant was so so. Service was terrible. The waitress lost our order. The food was slow in coming out and was nothing out of the ordinary. Whole thing was terribly disorganized on the part of the restaurant. Really liked the location of the London Hotel. Breakfast was good.
