Michelle "Stein is amazing, our whole tour group is sure that we want to book another tour with Stein because we couldn't imagine anyone better. She has such a passion and in-depth knowledge of European history and customs and showed us some really cool places that were a bit off the beaten track. Stein has a great energy, that kept the group spirit high even when we were stuck in some lengthy traffic jams...."

    Millie Stewart was a excellent tour guide. She had so much energy and enthusiasm that she brought to the trip. This was my very first trip to Europe and I felt because of her my cousin (travel partner) and I had so much fun. She was knowledgeable and ready to engage with any question we had about the sites we were visiting that day. What I also liked most was she was efficient with our time. Being that this was the winter express trip, with Millie I did not feel rushed to see sites because of how well she planned our time and execute our days on site. I would highly recommend her as a tour guide for your next trip because your guaranteed to have the time of your life.

    Itinerary, places we visit in such a short time was just awesome. Terence is simply an awesome tour guide, his way of explaining the history of the places definitely makes things more interesting and enjoyable.
