Amber "The tour was very quick paced but we were able to see so much and loved every minute of it. We definitely hope to get to come back and have more time at the different places but loved this tour for an intro to Europe. We were able to see all the major places we had hoped to see and were even pleasantly surprised at the places we weren’t expecting to enjoy as much as we did. I highly recommend this..."

    Overall it was a good tour and group. I liked the structured tours that allowed us to see so much in such a short time frame. However the accommodations, particularly in Switzerland, were disappointing. Also disappointing was no WiFi on the bus. Happy to do another bus tour but with another bus tour line - willing to pay a little more for better accommodations and WiFi on the bus.

    By and away THE best tour guide in this world. Honestly and truly, I don't think our trip to EU would have been worth it without Steve's guidance. Funny, honest, pleasant, a real friend when you are out there in the new adventure of your trip. He is the king among guides, a real hero.

It gave us great ideas of the places we would want to come back to and be able to take time and explore.

    Everything was great minus the accommodations/ food in Paris and Switzerland. Also more exciting comfort stops versus Bruges and Burgundy. Maybe Munich next time instead of Rhine Valley as it resembled closed to Switzerland.
