Charlotte "Our driver, Minty, and our guide, John, worked so well together. It seemed that their mission was to make sure that we all got the best possible experience. The destinations were well thought out. John schooled us on the area's language and a bit of history before each stop. He instructed us on how to use the metro in Paris along with safety tips, which really helped us on our independent outing..."

    Our guide was very rude to us when speaking to my husband and to me throughout the trip. Her nasty approach to us was painful. She spoke about each city so briefly that it wasn't possible to learn much. All she seemed to discuss was how late we were and kept looking at her watch. She walked as if she was speed walking, It was difficult to keep up with her for anyone over the age of 50. She spoke to a group of 50 people without a microphone in noisy streets and when we asked her to repeat something that we didn't hear, she just gave us snotty replies. She said the group should ask her questions but when I did, she told me that she had already told the information. She told the driver to lock the bus toilet because too many passengers were using it instead of telling the driver to clean it. We had checked before the trip to be sure that the bus had a toilet. It did have one but they locked it without caring about the passengers' needs. My husband and I were so disappointed with this tour and guide. We have travelled abroad many many times and have never had so terrible of a guide who just did her job without caring about her passengers, and never was willing to just be warm. No guide had ever told us that she would leave behind any passenger who was even a little late. She didn't consider that sometimes someone may be in a toilet and can't be on the bus because of this, especially if the bus toilet was locked. WE will never travel again with your company because of our very bad and unfortunate experiences with Helen. We go abroad several times a year and tip very generously. This is the first time in our 40 years of travel that we didn't tip and couldn't wait to go home. . +

    Paris - two days but not fully utilised. Visiting important places and spending more time there are more important than shopping oriented tours.

    We saw so much! Still processing! Long days, lots of walking, long periods of bus riding, too short breaks, so we could get to a destination. The hot weather had a negative impact on our endurance and enjoyment. Each location was truly beautiful and unique.
