Helen "My husband and I truly enjoyed this tour. We had read all the information before booking so we were prepared for all the walking and lengthy bus rides. The bus rides gave us the opportunity to see the countryside we otherwise would not have seen. The accommodations were as expected, not 4 Star, but clean. Food was good .

    The 18 day tour was pretty full on but amazing. Got to see so many places in just a short time. Hotels were basic but clean and our tour leader Emma was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Dan the driver got us around safely.

    Our trip was excellent. Loved all the places we went. Some places would have been nice to have more time in but there is so much to see in just 18 days. Our tour guide Shabby was "da bomb" and Minty our driver "the best", the trip wouldn't have been without them. I would recommend Expat to anyone, they are a really professional company.

    The overall trip was amazing. The people we met on the tour really enhanced our experience and made each day enjoyable. Rose, our guide, was incredible. She was entertaining, fun, knowledgeable, caring and knew exactly when we needed quite time and when we were ready for some fun on the coach. The hotels we stayed in were fine. We weren't expecting 4 star accommodations. The daily breakfasts were lacking and disappointing in most places but Abba Gardens blew everyone else away. Also the pool at this hotel was a welcome relief. Gary our driver was superb! Man that guy can drive and keep you safe. He is also very fun outside of work. He is not shy and will be the first in the lake in Switzerland! The included excursions can be missed. The perfumery, Harry's Watch store and cheese/clog demonstrations add nothing to the trip but time to allow Gary a respite from driving. These stops felt as if we got stuck in an infomercial or time share presentation.

    I am a solo traveler and I joined the Europe Explorer in May 2017 as it covered many European countries in my bucket list. This was my second tour with expat.I met lovely people from different countries.I had a wonderful time on the trip.We had some nice hotels and most included dinners was good.

    Overall the tour was very nice. Met a lot of nice people including the tour guide and coach driver who both did a great job. Getting to explore so many countries was wonderful but the pace got a little hectic at times and, for me personally, 18 days was a bit much. If I tour again it will be a shorter one. The tour bus was very nice: newer, comfortable and very clean. Was able to charge phones/devices during travel; onboard wi-fi would have been nice though. Most of the hotels were nice - some were even excellent. A few were outdated but all were "manageable" except one that apparently had a bed bug issue.

    Actually this trip was more than I expected. I am not that great at travelling long distances by car but found the comfort of the coach great and onboard guidance and titbits of knowledge shared by Kevin certainly helped pass the time .Comfort stops were good and timely.

Keith, our driver, and Jamie, our tour guide were first rate and did all they could to make our trip memorial. The best part, other than all the amazing places and experiences, was the group of people who shared the trip with us. That was a bonus we had not expected. We would definitely travel with Expat again.
