    The tour was excellent. A lot of time on the bus, but the time passed quickly when we played games, or would visit with the other travelers. Lots of early mornings, but we saw so much. The included meals were all delicious. The hotels were OK. Some better than others, but it was fine for 1 or 2 nights. Met amazing people on the tour. Dee and Csaba were great. I will definitely book another Expat Explore tour in the future.

    Just returned from a great trip to Eastern Europe! Our guide, Dee, was excellent. She stayed connected with the group the whole time and was very knowledgeable about each area we visited. The days were long with early morning starts and LOTS of walking but that’s the only way to be able to see everything. It was disappointing that we were rushed at Lake Bled, Vienna and Salzburg. Skipping the smaller cities to get to these places would have been ideal.

    I had a brilliant time. We were fortunate to have the wonderful Dorota (Dee) leading us and she was always thinking of how to make the experience better. She had lots of useful information and tips and made sure we had plenty of opportunities to talk to her. The tour was fast-paced, especially the last few days where we were only stopping for one nice, and she and our amazing driver Csaba made sure we made the most of those stops. Most of the local guides were excellent and I would happily visit any of the places again, including a number of the ‘comfort’ stops like Bled. Really well balanced tour if you want to see a huge amount in a short time. Excellent value for money.

    Dee was an excellent tour leader. She can keep the group moving and motivated. Zoltan, the driver, was also excellent. He knew how to get us out of traffic jams. The two worked well together.

    Excellent trip, fast paced but you get to experience so much. Dee and Zoltan were wonderful. Met some lovely people from different countries and varied age groups but everybody got on really well. The places you visit are all so amazing and so interesting. Definitely do the Danube River trip in Budapest. Would love more time in each place but that is what happens when you only do a short tour. Excellent value for money. You could not do the same things any cheaper. Hotels were fine. Definitely would recommend Expat tours. We previously did the 12 day Italian tour which was also excellent and good value for money.

    We were frustrated in getting the information so late. Having e-mailed you to say that we were leaving South Africa 10 days earlier and would NOT be in contact by e-mail, we were informed that we could get free Wifi in Munich. HOW??? When we do not have roaming on our cell phones or e-mails. We certainly to not own a laptop or tablet. Not everyone is 25 years old. To start off at Munich: There were no directions to the Azimut Hotel from you. We battled for 2 hours to find out how to get there as it is not on any metro or bus route. Most people we asked on the train had no idea where it was. At our age we did not relish dragging our suitcases for more than a kilometer on cobble stones. Not a good start. The rest of the trip was a wonderful experience. Dorotora was extremely well versed on the history of each country and city visited. The local tour guides did a good job except that at times one could not hear what they were saying. Our bus driver Zoltan was excellent and very friendly. In fact a very nice group. Accomodation: Mostly Ok, some better than others. The approach to the Duo Hotel in Krakow was something to be experienced. Arrived in rain and had to walk at least 300m through road construction, sand and broken pavement. Not Expat's fault, but not pleasant. Perhaps choose another hotel in Krakow until the building is completed. Ljubljana - a lovely city, could do with an extra day there. Access to hotel bad. Coach had to stop miles from hotel - fortunately it did not rain, but cobble stones wreck your suitcase wheels. This was also the worst breakfast by far. Definitely post communism. Some hotels have only one lift. When two coach loads arrive at the same time it is chaos. Dinners included in the tour were great. VERY noisy, but interesting and fun. Sometimes we had to walk miles to get to the venue. We don't know how Dee knew her way around but she managed so well and was always cheerful. A longer stay in Vienna would be most welcome as this is one of the most popular cities for classical music and culture.

    The driver (Csaba) was excellent and the tour guide (Dorota) was absolutely wonderful.The sights were spectacular, the accommodations were were all fine...only downside was getting my drink spiked in a Polish night club and having thousands of dollars in fraudulent charges run up on my credit cards.
