    The places that we've been visiting were so beautiful. Millie as tour leader and Catlin as coach driver were excellent. Millie shared her knowledge about history behind each cities or person who who lived there before. Her advice to visit such and such places were excellent. We had some nice time partying all together especially in Switzerland and Berlin. Unforgettable moments.

    Millie was amazing. She made me feel comfortable and was so informative in every city we went to, I learnt a lot from millie. Besides being very professional when she needed to, she was also so much fun. I would definitely love to take another tour if millie was my guide again. Thankyou again for making my trip amazing

    The tour was the BEST experience I’ve ever had! The people in my group we had so much fun together, and this was only accentuated by our fun bus driver, and also our amazing tour leader- Millie. Millie was so knowledgeable about all our destinations, not only about the history, but about the best places to visit and to have a good time! Love her lots and would LOVE to see her again

    Stien was the most amazing guide, the trip was made so much better thanks to her tips and recommendations! Stien also planned extra activities that weren’t included in the itinerary but turned out to be highlights of the tour (steak dinner in Florence and medieval dinner in Prague). After being on 3 tours Stien has by far been the best trip leader I’ve had.
