    I spent my Spring Break on the Northern Loop and it was easily the best trip I took in Europe. It was in large part because of the many recommendations given to me by my guide, Erin. She knew great places to eat, which sites to see, and gave great directions along the way. I went on many more trips with her and still keep in contact as she is always a go-to person for travel recommendations. Bus2Alps made a great decision when they hired her!

    I chose to do my spring break with Bus2Alps and went on the Northern loop trip. Since this was a 10 day trip, I was nervous for how everything was going to go. I had the best time ever traveling to the 4 different cities and I loved every single tour guide that was with me on that trip. Erin went out to dinner with my friends and I, was always up to give us suggestions for food, places to shop, and where to go that wasn't so touristy. This was also the second trip I went on with Erin and she was amazing.

    This was the best experience ever!! I came alone on this trip and by the end left with so many new friends!! I was looking for the best possible way to spend my money and get the most out of it and the Bus2alps Northern Loop certainly exceeded all my expectations. There is a wonderful balance of seeing all the essential landmarks and learning the history of each country along with allowing you to have plenty of free time to do additional tours, activities, relax or shop. Our guides Erin, Ashleigh and Ericka each had tremendous knowledge of each destination and brought positive attitudes everywhere we went. I'm glad I did this trip, it is well worth the price and you will wish you had more time with them after you leave. I was nervous going by myself but happy I did and will do it again in a heartbeat!!

    Bus2Alps made everything easier for us on our trips. I wouldn't have done half the things I did if it wasn't for them. They had everything organized and had optional activities for us to choose from. I'm thankful that Bus2Alps existed while I was abroad.

Questions & Answers

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

    • Does the booking have free cancellation?

      No there isn't free cancellation. Usually once you pay the deposit this amount is forfeited if you cancel, or if it closer to your tour departure then higher cancellation penalties may apply.
      If you are worried that you may need to cancel due to unforeseen reasons, please take out comprehensive travel insurance which will reimburse you in case of emergency and you are no longer able to take your trip.

    • Will this tour accept travelers over 40 years old?

      Yes this tour accepts travelers over the age of 40. However please keep in mind that Bus2Alps specializes in organizing tours for American college students, so your fellow travellers will be in their early twenties. If you are fine with that you can join the tour.

    • Hello! I was wondering if it was at all possible to "meet up" with the tour a few days after the given start date. Thank you!

      Hi there,
      Yes you can join the tour later in a different city than the departure city, but please keep in mind that this is already a package price so the cost will not be amended.
      Thanks very much.
