- JJennyWritten on November 13, 20174.0 - GoodJess was a wonderful tour guide! I loved how she had suggestions for each city we stopped in. She was super laid back but professional at the same time. I was upset I was only on the tour for a week, I wish I could have stayed on longer.Show detailed ratings
- LindaWritten on July 11, 20174.0 - GoodThe trip surpassed all my expectations. I was looking forward to seeing new places but nothing could have prepared me for such a wonderful, life changing experience. Vic and Robbie are great shepherds - caring, knowledgeable, approachable and reliable. The accommodations were OK, the bus rides were sometimes too long but who cares?? The places we saw...the food we ate...the sights...and the friendships we made, made the trip that more meaningful. I wish I would have been able to do the full tour with the group. Seeing the pictures/videos on Facebook make me miss them but it's been a great way to keep in touch too. I'd do this again in a heartbeat!Show detailed ratings
- LizzyWritten on October 3, 20162.5 - AverageThe perfect word to describe our experience for this tour is disappointing. We feel this way for a couple reasons: 1. This tour, although advertised as one, is NOT a food tour. The food included in the package was often hotel food, and/or the cheapest option on the menu. For example, we were very excited for dinner on day 1. Our guide told us it would be traditional french fare - options being duck confit or beef bourguignon. We choose one of each. Red flag number one: the restaurant was a chinese restaurant. Red flag number two: the "French onion soup" tasted like water. The meals followed this disappointing trend throughout the next 7 days. We even received the SAME EXACT MEAL for dinner two nights in a row! 2. The amount of time in the bus was unacceptable. Of the 7 days, 4 were spent in the bus for 5 or more hours. While I very much enjoyed the destinations we explored, the amount of time it took to get to each far outweighed the amount of time we had to enjoy each destination. Overall, I would only recommend this tour to someone who has never travelled before and has low standards for food quality. It was a very fast, very rushed, and full of mediocre meals.Show detailed ratingsTopdeck commented on this reviewHi there, We're sorry to hear that the trip didn't live upto your expectations.

I had the most incredible trip and ao much of it was down to Jacob's time and energy he put in every day making sure we got the most out of every new place we discovered!Show detailed ratings

- LeonieWritten on May 7, 20145.0 - ExcellentIt was a FANTASTIC trip and I can only recommend it! Our tour guide Jenny gave us insider tips and told us what to do in which city, where to go for a fancy bar, where to queue up to enter the museum fast, how to experience the local culture etc. Not only her, also the driver was great - driving us around Paris, Barcelona. Both did a great job. The food and the hotels we stayed at were very nice. We ate a lot of country-specific food, stayed in nice hotels and enjoyed a few drinks in the eve. It´s definitely worth it!Show detailed ratings
