    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our European Escape tour. It was excellent, well organised and delivered by our exemplary tour guide and driver Alice and Craig, respectively. Our experience has been indelibly etched on our minds. A humongous thank you to Alice, Craig and Expat Tours. We are satisfied expats. Looking forward to our next tour.

    I liked having to visit most if not all the popular landmarks in Europe and to name a few, the Swiss Alps Top of Europe @ Jungfraujoch & Interlaken, Eiffel Tower, Arc the Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre in Paris, Leaning Tower of Pisa, I Amsterdam, Vatican City in Rome, its Museum, St Peter's Square, Duomo and many more in Florence, Italy, the Fontanas and Piazzas in Rome, Munich Germany and so much more. It had been the most amazing 12-days for me and my husband. Our tour leader Grace Alice and driver Monty had spoilt us. The people in our group were all easy to get along with we're all like a family.

    Trip of a lifetime! This was our first Europe trip and we loved every second of it. From planning, organization and follow trough, Expat did a wonderful job. They have great communication and their itinerary was what they promised. Our tour guide Emma was knowledgeable, understanding, fun and relatable. She’s the best! The hotels were clean and comfortable. We seen so much in just 12 days, it’s unbelievable. We would not have been able to cover this much ground on our own in such a short time. It is a fast pace tour but it gave us a nice glimpse of each country and now we know where we would love to return. We definitely recommend this tour and will be booking again soon!

    We liked the areas where it was less city and more rural. We loved our tour leader and driver - they were the absolute best! The accomodations were mostly very nice but a couple of them had issues with air conditioning and didn't have an alternative (windows couldn't open, no fans).

Questions & Answers

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

    • March 21, 2018

      Is this tour suitable for solo travellers?

      Group tours are a wonderful option for solo travellers! You will get to meet lots of like-minded travellers on your trip, and the guide will be there for the duration of the tour for any questions you may have.

      Additionally, you will be able to share a room with someone on the tour of the same gender (unless you decide to upgrade to a single room).

    • April 1, 2017

      Is it advisable to reach London one day earlier and depart one day later?

      You could, of course, arrive one day earlier and leave one day later, as the tour starts early in the morning and ends in the evening. However Expat Explore does not offer pre-trip or post-trip accommodations in London, and you would need to arrange accommodation yourself.

    • April 1, 2017

      Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Expat Explore can provide airport transfers for passengers. Please contact our Customer Support team for more information or to arrange this.
