I just got back about 2 days ago and now that I am at home I have to say, I can’t recommend it enough. As far as bang for your buck goes this is it. These guys are legit.

    Gustavo was great, knowledgeable and the driver, Minty was good too. That made the hectic schedule more tolerable, that was otherwise very exhausting.

    We loved the opprtunity to be guided through Europe with Gustavo. We were never lost and always new the tricks and tips to EVERY AREA we explored. So blessed to have had the opportunity to have him as our guide and Minty as our driver! An excellent combination. Transportation cleanliness and ease of access was PERFECTION. Thank you for having two people who LOVE what they do take care of my family of five. They were amazing including taking care of my mother who had a disability which gustavo and minty accommodated

    Loved it, only downside was the hotel in Florence which smelt of pee and needed a complete refurbishment.

    The tour just sucks. There's more journey than visiting places. You end up having 70% travel. Tour is planned just to take extra money for free days. You pay almost the tour amount for free days. I would never recommend this tour. The hotel in Switzerland had bed bugs all the place. There is not a single group activity.

    About a month ago I decided to sign up for this tour on a total whim. I jumped in with zero planning or prep. I've never travelled before. I just got back about 2 days ago and now that I am at home I have to say, I can’t recommend it enough. As far as bang for your buck goes this is it. These guys are legit. I found it perfect for a first-time traveller in particular. It’s a great way to get a taste of places you might want to come back to. You get to see so many different countries and cities. While it is busy with long days, everything is laid out for you.. You never have to worry about where the nearest ATM's are, bathrooms, where to eat on your days off, recommendations of what to do… Our tour leader Kevin was just AMAZING. He was cheerful, organized, informed, gave us interesting information on the history, culture, language and food of each country. Any question you had, he had answers for. The amount of work he did to keep this running smoothly was insane; there were literally no hitches whatsoever. We also had Joe as our coach driver who was just fantastic. I actually really enjoyed the road-trip element to the tour. It felt like a fun adventure. I’ve never been to Europe so it was a novelty to see the views from the road, how each country changed from border to border, and Kevin always kept us entertained with well-timed stops and information and games on the bus.. There was never a point where I was dying from hunger or needing to use the washroom or from sitting for too long, the driving was broken up really well. The coach bus was also very comfortable. WAY more comfortable than the plane before and after the tour lol. There was plenty of legroom, huge windows for seeing everything and Joe kept it spotless every day. Our TOUR GROUP was also amazing, everyone was so friendly and open and kind and now I have friends from all around the world . The optional excursions in particular were really fantastic; you pay a lil extra [like 40euro or so] but you get stuff like a full look at all the main sights, informative tours, extra meals.. The food and accommodations were seriously so so good. No scuzzy hostels or weird smelling rooms or weird stains. everything was super comfortable and CLEAN. I don't know how they managed to fit so much into 12 days but they really nailed it. I saw so many sights that were just unbelievably beautiful, these are memories i’ll have for a lifetime. Very eyeopening to experience other cultures and it gave me a whole new perspective on my own country of Canada. Couldn't have asked for a better trip!!
