South Africa with Victoria Falls with Cosmos

By: Luis M. Herrera, Senior Travel Consultant and CTC

I never thought I’d visit South Africa due to its complex history of Apartheid but the opportunity came up and I’m so grateful that it did. South Africa taught me what it means to be resilient and the power of forgiveness. I visited South Africa and Zimbabwe on a Cosmos 17 day tour called South Africa: From the Cape to Kruger with Victoria Falls extension.

If you’ve already experienced the mainland, Sicily is still a must.

By: CJ Giveans, Travel Consultant

My Paris Explorer with Trafalgar vacation this year concentrated on Paris – the City of Light and Love. I chose this particular tour because although I had previously visited Paris in the past, it was always too short, and was only a part of an expanded itinerary.
