    The tour was great value for money, although some of the hotel rooms where small, they where mixed in with larger room stays, so the total accommodation experience was generally great. The tour is long and tiring, however was made as easy as possible by excellent service from the Driver (Antonia) and Shabby (coordinator) Local guides where informative and knew their stuff The food experience was ok, but breakfast could have been a bit more variety, apart from the first stay in Amsterdam that had outstanding accommodation. The tour guests where a good mixture of countries and ages, and I'm sure all enjoyed the experience. Top stay experiences - Switzerland and Prague Top local tours - Vienna, Prague and Budapest Suggestions - Airport pick-ups for tour commencement or more central meeting than Greenwich The weather was great with only 2 days part rain Overall the tour easily met our expectations

    The european jewel tour was a fantastic choice which allowed the opportunity to get a test of some European and Eastern European countries. Our tour leader Mark was fantastic and Gary our coach driver was great value and it was evident a very experienced driver. The tour group varied in ages but we all got along like a house on fire. Some of the hotels are a little bit out of town but public transport is close by. Thanks mark and gary for sharing your funny stories and experience with us.

    I would NOT recommend doing an Expat tour. Just finished the 14 European Jewel. Our tour leader Mark was great and our driver was fantastic guiding us through the narrow streets, they were a great team, however that is the best part. The hotels were a long way out & some Times below standard, also having to carry our luggage up a couple of flights of stairs was not acceptable. The food was below standard in quite a few places especially Switzerland it was inedible. The accommodation & where we were staying had been changed from when we booked and missed out on optional extras that were specific to picking this particular tour.. Heartbroken...also wi fi was not always accessible. The people on the tour were all lovely & we made the most of it & had a great time but I would never do a tour with Expat again...

    Our guide , Helen , was as at times in too much of a rush taking off on a walking tour before everyone was off the coach . Also she could be rude when answering questions saying you basically you got what you paid for in a budget tour. Accommadation was o'k except on the Rhine where it was really h0peless with too small a lift and confusing room numbering system. The rooms and owner at Switzerland should be dumped form you tours ! He is lacking in personality , tries to serve 50 people on his own in the dining room and on the night of the fondue dinner he was handling the bread pieces with NO gloves. His complete manner reminds me of the soup Nazi on the seinfeild tv show. Arthur did a fine job of driving in difficult situations. My only complaint is at Dover on the 1st day he opened hi overhead locker above me and a 7/8 full bottle of whiskey fell onto my head.It is still sore 14 days later. Luckily I have a thick head other wise more serious injuries would have occurred.

    Wow, I don't even know where to start. First the tour guide, Kayleigh was outstanding. She was knowledgable and was an amazing guide. She was so dedicated that when we were in Florence in our free time (after she gave us the walking tour), she went to get a root canal and made it back to the location we were to meet on time and never fussed a bit. I would have been home in bed with ice packs. She was patient and when we would perhaps misplace something, she was always there to take up the slack and figure out a way to make it work. Our bus driver, Joe....oh man, he got us in and out of tight corners with parking garages, made the long drives, and overall....a very kind man! The tour itself was ALOT for the money. From the coach rides, toll booths, fuel, metro tickets, generally one breakfast complimentary of the hotel and the one meal per day unless on free days were such as delight. The guide and driver were flexible but expected us to be on time and no incidentals happened with getting lost with either of them. Some of the hotels were rough with lugging suitcases up stairs (pack light) and very small elevator (lifts). I missed having pancakes, waffles, bacon etc..for breakfast. I am not used to deli meat and cheese for all breakfasts so that got old. The excursions were awesome. I highly recommend all but the Tuscany supper. It was terrible from the taste to presentation. I took my kids and I had the time of my life. The entire tour became quick friends and we all still keep in touch in out Facebook page and I hope we continue and are life long friends because truly, it was the best experience. Save money for toilets and water. I take for granted free toilets and water in USA! Thank you to Kayleigh, Joe and all my new friends who have become like family. Miss you all so much.

    I have following comments: 1. Tour leader should make sure that every one is following her. 2. Vegetarian food was always Pizza, Pasta, Potato, there was no choice. 3. Hotel rooms were very small and some didn't have air conditioning which made difficult to sleep at 90F temperature. Good point was punctuality.
