Kathryn "Stein made the trip so much fun yet informative, with great music mixes for countries, fab tips on shops, bars and activities - they were on point every time - and she set up a very warm, family like tour just by being the warm, organised, kind, caring lady she is.

    Our guide was the absolute best. My partner and i had a bad experience on a south east Asia tour prior to this tour but we thought we would give it one more go and Stien was our saving grace. She knew a lot about each location, she was so relaxed and kick back and she defs knew how to have a good time. You're the fucking shit Stien!!!! 10/10

    Stien was an amazing tour leader! She was very informative and had a tonne of information about each place we visited. Within a few days of the tour she already felt like a friend and it was so great to be able to spend 24 days on the Winter Spirit tour with her :)

    Stien is a fantastic tour guide and creates a great atmosphere everywhere she goes. She provided a lot knowledge on each place we went to around Europe, in which she beautifully captured the history and essence of these places. Stien also provided great recommendations on things to do and places to eat to get that real culture experience around Europe. Couldn't recommend a better tour guide!!

    Jess is by far the best, most knowledgeable and dowb to earth guide I've ever met. She made our whole trip so easy to just get up and go every morning not having to stress or think about fitting it all in. We experienced everything that we possobly could and didn't ever worry about missing out on something amazing. You're the best Jess, keep being you

    Jess, our trip leader was the most knowledgeable, experienced, personable, fun and most of all went above and beyond. She made my Europe trip amazing. I think if I had any other guide it wouldn't have been the same. I am so grateful that Jess looked after every aspect of our experience. From the people to the street lights! ;)
