    Terrible Guide and Driver. We took a 10 day Christmas Tour from Paris to London. The experience would have been great, had we had a different guide and driver. The guide named Kaeleigh was rude and unaccommodating. Even after clients told her off for her... Read more

    I want to share other travelers with my pros and cons so that you are informed and benefit from my experience. Expat Explore is perceived as a budget tour company. The biggest selling point is you can visit many countries in a short time. If you don’t want... Read more

    Best experience ever. Wonderful places. Beautiful hotels and very warm people. Carl, the founder of Expat is one of the most down to earth person we've ever meet. Thanks expat for the once in a lifetime experience.

    Our trip with Expat Explore Travel was amazing! We were skeptical to go on a 10-day bus tour with strangers, but it was the best experience ever. We are a family of four, with two kids aged 21 and 19, and were a bit overwhelmed with having to map out... Read more

    Had an amazing time. Hotel was not what I expect. They seem to be more like 1-2 stars. Food was a joke (besides Christmas dinner) Breakfast, for the moat part, was a joke. Be prepared to pay for breakfasts as well as other meals. The tour itself was great.... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is the flight included?

      We specialise in giving you the best tours from around the world, however the tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare. You will be responsible for booking your flights to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare before confirming your tour.

    • How will the accommodation be for a group of 3 travelers?

      It's entirely up to you. We can put in a request for a tripple room if you'd prefer to be in the same room. Otherwise, one of you can share with another traveler of the same gender. The other option is to pay a single supplement upgrade for one person so that she can have her own room instead.

    • Between London Gatwick and London Heathrow airports, which will be better for the tour?

      All London airports are well connected to the city, Heathrow and Gatwick in particular (though for a transfer, Gatwick is more expensive as it is further out). We would recommend you base your decision on the flight that is cheaper and timed better for your comfort.
