I have this tour scheduled for October to enjoy the south and it's fall colors.
Cosmos is a good company to travel with. If you plan to see the world as I have done, I would travel with an affordable company and Cosmos is that complany. However, you have to prepare your budget to purchase all of your meals because Cosmos does not feed their tourists in America and their selected hotels usually have spots on the carpet.
If you want better quality hotels and service, you have to pay more and tour with their sister company Globus.
Meanwhile, Cosmos is more affordable to see the world, just put towels on the hotel floors (because they are spotty) and enjoy the ride. Their tour directors are kind with patience and always willing to help and find you if you get lost like I do. (smile) I have been to Italy four times with Cosmos, traveled here in America twice and plan to travel parts of the US and Canada in the fall of 2012 with Cosmos as well. Like I said,,,,,,COSMOS IS AFFORDABLE !
