JaimeBoudreau "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 walk..."

    The entire tour exceeded our expectations and Karina MERKEL our Expat tour guide was exceptional. Her enthusiasm, positive nature and willingness to go above and beyond to deliver a first class tour for everyone shone through. Mark the driver was very competent and safe making the coach travel very enjoyable and of course scenic as we traversed 7000 km of diverse countryside. Our tour group whilst diverse in age, nationality and background bonded so well and we made so many firm friendships and all enhanced the fun of the tour. Value for money was perfect we could not have done, experienced and seen so much in this space of time without being on a tour of this nature. You do need to be physically and mentally fit and be ready for a full on itinerary but there is space for doing your own thing at your own pace on the double up night stays. We would certainly do a similar trip again, we loved it.

    Tour was great however the covered dinners provided where disgusting. Accommodation in Paris was poor. No extra pillow and when asked they said no. Also no hairdryer

    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.
