The Trafalgar Tours Experience


Global Coach tours have been a Trafalgar preferred partner in the UK for nearly 20 years. During this time nearly 4000 people have booked a Trafalgar guided vacation with us. We recognise the quality of their tours which along with their variety and scope, offer the vacation seeker endless choice to experience the world. Since we are based in the UK, the majority of our guests purchase tours of the UK, Ireland and Europe. However we offer the entire range of Trafalgar tours including the USA, Canada, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. 

My name is Geoff Monk and I'm the owner of Global Coach Tours. I know my reputation is safe when I book my guests on a Trafalgar vacation. I have personally been on Trafalgar tours of Spain & Portugal, I've also travelled with their sister brand Insight Vacations to Vienna Prague & Budapest. I sent my parents on a Trafalgar multi-country tour of Europe and Spain which they thoroughly enjoyed. In 2007 I booked my best friend on a tour of Italy. he was single at the time, but when he returned, he not only loved the tour, but fell in love on tour! Six months later he was married.
