    From start to finish this tour was great with Steve and Jo ( the driver) being absolute gems. This tour is not a laidback outing and will be physically demanding but is sooo worth it. This was our first bus tour and Expat delivered on everything to make this our best trip ever. Thanks Expat will use your tours again. Bruce Kesslering

    The itinerary is fast paced, cramming as much in a possible. Great if you love always being on the go. Tough if you're looking to relax. The coach bus was average. Accommodations are average in most cities. Some are poor in the big tourist cities. Included meals were disappointing. Would have rather bought our own meals. Our guide Steve was outstanding! He was very knowledgeable, very easy to talk with, and had great tips for each stop.

    This was a very busy but awesome tour. Our tour leader, Steve, kept everything running smoothly and made sure we had a great trip. It is a whirlwind and at the end of the 22 days, you will find it hard to believe all the amazing things you have seen. I would highly recommend Expat and this trip but ensure that you have a great pair of shoes and physically able to keep up as there is a ton of walking!!

    Please no more Ibis in London and BB in Paris All rooms are too small and suffocating. Also lessen the mandated walking tour and add more free days Great job for Steve and Joe

    My wife and I took this 22 days of the best of Europe, looking to make all our dreams come true, the whole travel adventure with expat was what we expected since the beginning, the hotels were average good, the hours on the road were not to long and we always had stops to stretch and buy food. The bus Driver was awesome, and an excellent driver, hard working guy and always there to help us.... Our tour guide was a bit of a problem, not that many people from our tour were happy with her, she was to pushy all the time and she will put anyone in the spot when they were like 1 min late, the time she always gave us wasn't enough to do anything... somedays was 45 for lunch, which was imposible so with her timing we had to improvise and turn to fast foods to go since we had no time to eat half of the time, not everyone was happy, I may not keep this inside, thats why i rather speak out so maybe in a future, this guide could be change and maybe also the way she runs things.... another test up thing is that she didn't look after the elderly people in our tour, she would leave them behind for walking slow and she will make us walk far so the elderly people will have no time to catch up, this happened quite a bit aswell. She also put my wife in the spot and yelled at her for using the bus toilet, it was an emergency but according to her there is no emergencies and you have to hold it or go in your pants. She threaten the whole bus to leave people behind if they were so close to being a minute late, she was very pushy, always stressed with us and time... I felt insecure to be around her not know what she will do or say to us... Our tour guide didn't speak to all of us equally, she had the group of people she will always talk to and the rest ignore. We felt a lil discriminated in some days more than others. Overall the tour was amazing but our tour guide was simply no good, from a 1-10 ... i will honestly give her a (4) for trying but not being the best at her job. I will not say names because I am not here to get someone fired but i am just here to give our my review overall of the this trip we just took. I will make this anonymous and keep it this way but who ever read this, just keep in mind all the details that need improvement. I like Expat and I do look forward to traveling with them again, Thanks Expat!
