    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!!

    Yes! We did Europe Escape with Expat Explore in June 2017. The trip was simply fabulous. Our guide Jami and driver Rob were very knowledgable and entertaining. We loved the tour and looking forward to doing more tours with Expat Explore in 2018!

    A great tour to receive a taste of Europe. Be prepared for a busy, fast paced 12 days. Not enough time in some places and arrive late in the afternoon, however that's the price you pay to fit in all the countries/places.

    Had an amazing time on the Europe Escape tour with Kaeleigh (tour leader) and Josh (coach driver, don't say bus!). Kaeleigh was well organised, very friendly and knowledgeable. My only regret is not booking a longer tour, the days went quicker than I anticipated. A suggestion for improvement is I reckon the optional excursion food could have been better.

Which one thing “stood out” (a question I’ve been asked a number of times) it was impossible to say so many stand outs. A great time had and I can only highly recommend to others.

Questions & Answers

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

    • May 1, 2017

      Can a pregnant woman join this tour?

      There are no terms which say you cannot go on a tour if you are pregnant. However, this is a tour that requires long travel time between destinations and is a very high energy tour. If you believe this will be fine for you then there shouldn't be any problems.

    • May 1, 2017

      I was wondering if I can get into Paris and join the tour there on the second day since I'm coming from Lourdes?

      Meeting the tour on the second day in Paris will not be a problem at all. The only issue is that we will not have the exact time and date of the meet up until the tour is confirmed and we have final documents through from the operator.

    • May 1, 2017

      Where do I see the approximate amount for the tour I choose?

      You can see on the right-hand side. It will show you a green "BOOK NOW" button and below that you can see the deposit and the final amount with the due date there.

      The website was easy to use and the tours were easy to select and compare. The staff were brilliant and really helpful when calling. I love the chat feature between the tour operator and I! It was perfect and allowed me to ask questions without having to call up constantly. Awesome company and I'll be using them again in the future.
