    I did the Europe taster tour! Was a little sceptical to begin with because the price was so affordable but was pleasantly surprised! Tour leader Kayleigh was awesome! With so much knowledge and just a super friendly approachable personality. Loved the tour, will def be back and thoroughly recommend to all my friends!

    Our academy went on a educational tour in Europe with Expact Explore. When we arrived in Amsterdam our tour guid Rose Brown welcomed us with an energetic friendly attitude. Rose introduce each country to us in a historical way while entering the country. We have learned alot from Rose. During the tour on the coach, Rose entertained us with games and quizzes. All of the students enjoyed it. Rose went out of her way to help us to find the best attractions to visit in our budget range on our frer day. We enjoyed Rose's company.

    My family and I had the best time on our recent 7 day tour - nothing was too much trouble for Gustavo and our driver Minty. The organisation was seamless and everyone had the best time. The group really bonded and that was due also to our Tour Leader and Driver. We cannot thank you enough for making our holiday so memorable and for us meeting our new friends.

    Overall it was a great trip. Our bus driver, David was nice, experienced and kind. Our tour guide Jamie was good, helpful and gave us a lot of useful information. The hotels were very good. It was a very memorable trip and worth the money. I would definitely recommend this to all who are first time visitors in Europe. Everything is arranged well and you don't need to worry about transportation.

    The tour was a great taster and introduction to Europe. It's fast paced and the week goes really quickly but it's an awesome tour for a first timer who is interested to see whether they'd would like to explore Europe more indepthly. Special kudos also has to go out to our tour leader Mark and our driver Minty; they were the absolute best! My only complaint on this tour was the rude service I received from the front desk clerk Kim in Switzerland at the Alpenrose Hotel. Everyone went out to do different tour activities for the day and I was one of the the few tour members who returned to the hotel after visiting town. Upon my return, I asked her to heat some packaged rice for me since there was no lunch at the hotel or no microwave accessible to guests and she skinned up her face at me and initially said: "we don't do that here", after me asking her again she gave a half-hearted fake smile and reluctantly said yes. On her way to heat the rice, she said something rude in Swiss-German to another lady that worked at the hotel. Kim really needs to check her attitude as she probably thinks she can act however she pleases as her father is the owner of Expat Explore from what I was told. Additionally, I was told she is repeatedly rude to guests. If her father cares about his business and the bottom line of making money he'd get her in check before she starts to cause him to lose customers and money. However with that being said, that one bad experience did not lessen my overall great experience on this tour. All in all, I'd definitely recommend this Europe Taster tour to anyone.

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Ricardo11th October 2017
      I reserved a 14 day tour of Europe and mistakenly reserved and paid for the wrong tour date. Realizing what I had done I contacted TourRadar and they rectified the situation rapidly and efficiently. A refund was issued for the monies not used and I am so far a very satisfied customer. I hope that the actual tour will go as nicely, and I will be very happy.
