the Trafalgar difference

One-of-a-kind experiences

With Trafalgar’s global network, you’ll unlock local access to communities and people around the world that you wouldn’t otherwise encounter. A Trafalgar tour connects you with locals who are proud to welcome you into their community and share their stories through food – not only to experience the region’s delicacies, but also the way of life. From secret restaurants to 160+ Trafalgar exclusive Be My Guest experiences with local families, you’ll gain a glimpse into the lives of the people who call these places home.

As well as staying at trusted hotel partners like Marriott, Sheraton and Hilton, in every destination you’ll also enjoy unique Trafalgar ‘Stays with stories’ accommodation. More than just a place to rest your head, these are stays that are part of the heritage and fabric of the communities you visit. From centuries-old castles to historical homesteads, you’ll be immersed in the stories behind each property.

Must-see local secrets

Trafalgar knows that visiting bucket-list sites is a highlight of travelling – and also that travelling on your own can make things hard work. Don’t queue with other sightseers for hours; let the Trafalgar experts unlock doors exclusively for you – from access to the Vatican out of hours to a tour of Versailles and its grounds with an expert. This, coupled with the intimate glimpses and hidden gems Trafalgar’s local specialists show you, are the life-changing experiences that make you feel like an insider, not a tourist.

No guidebook can ever replace local knowledge, expertise and passion. You’ll appreciate the expertise of Trafalgar’s Local Specialist Guides in many destinations. Fiercely passionate and incredibly proud, you’ll unlock the best of each location thanks to their personal lens on the places you visit. With Culture with Trafalgar, over 300 intimate cultural experiences give a deeper understanding of the heart and soul of places and people. See the world through a different lens by feeling the fire of a El Palacio Andaluz flamenco show in Spain, learn the secrets of French cuisine at L’Atelier De Chefs in Paris, or delve into the life of Johnny Cash with a member of his family at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville.
