Blake our tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of the cities visited, was organized humorous & went out of his way to find me a cake for my 70th birthday in Belgrade. The driver Zoltan was friendly & courteous. I enjoyed Budapest Prague for 2 days but next time Vienna needs a 2 day visit too. I enjoy..."

    Dorota was my guide and I was most upset that she did nothing about the sexual harrassment that took place on the bus btwn me/my fellow female travelers and one of the males on this trip. He was taking pictures of us and our body parts and we caught him doing that. We made him show us the unsolicited pics and we told him to sit far far away from us. When we told D about it, she only asked him to sit away from us once and then did nothing about it after that. This makes things unsafe for females going on trips like this. The whole point of group travel for me was safety, which was not upheld. Another annoyance was the seating chart. I understand she needed to do the seating rotation, which me and the other 2 people I came with were not fond of, but we acquiesced and she sat us far apart to where it was not as fun for us on the trip. After that we sat where we wanted bc we paid a lot for this trip and were not about to be treated like children about where to sit after paying more than three thousand dollars for this trip.

    Dorota (Dee) our guide and Zoltan our driver are excellent. The trip was well planned and we got to see some amazing sights, tasted local food and partake in some local activities. Some of the hotel selections were not great, e.g. no lifts or the amenities were very basic, but generally the rest of the hotels are good. Overall, a fast paced trip to allow you to get a taste of Croatia and central Europe but I enjoyed this trip. Thank you!

    Dorota (Dee), our tour leader and Zoltan our bus driver, are excellent. The trip was generally well planned and there was a good balance of sights, activities and food. Some of the selection of hotels were questionable and I would have liked the stop at Czesky Krumlov, Prague to be longer. Overall, I enjoyed my trip.

    A coach trip was a new experience for us. We have done all our travels on our own.With a coach trip you get the instant feel that you've got 40 or so more friends. You can discuss and do things together. Most of the things are taken care of. The tour involves long days, travelling by public transport in some of the cities on your own which was challenging for some in the group. There were pros and cons with this trip. Pros first: The price for the trip was very competitive.The tour leader and the driver were excellent. Most of the local tour guides were very good except one with too many micro details which tires the group especially on a warm humid day. And breakfast was adequeate in most of the hotels. The cons: Accomodation was below par in some of the hotels. we understand that what you pay is what you get, but would expect an elevator in all hotels. We had to carry our luggages 3 floors up and down. And hotels where you reach a floor by lift but find steps down the corridor and steps up a little further!!! And having to carry our luggage across streets since most of the hotels had no parking near the hotel. And a horrible border crossing where we had to wait for more than 6 hours!! Is this a norm for all coach companies to be left to the mercy of immigration officials or is there a better policy adopted by other tour companies in Europe??? And the very long city walks after a long day and odd dinner timings like 9.00pm. The included dinners were a waste of time in most places except a couple. The tour with the same itinerary could be done with two extra days in comfort even with the added cost. More time in Sarajevo and Vienna was needed.

    My wife and I have done coach tours before they are a quick and relatively easy way to see a lot of countries in a short period of time. We would have to say we were totally underwhelmed by this tour and felt it missed the mark for us. With the exception of Munich, Budapest, Vienna and Prague the hotels were at the bottom end of the star range. Two-hour walking tours at the end of a long day in crowded places in 33 to 38 degrees Celsius were too much, a one-hour tour would have been plenty. There was so much crowd noise in some places it was impossible to hear the guide, you were hot and tired so had checked out mentally after the first hour. The included dinners apart from Budapest were absolute rubbish. After two hours of walking in the hot sun and dinners that started at 9.00 pm, you were too tired to enjoy the dinners that were OK, let alone the ones that weren’t. The three-hour border crossing from Serbia into Hungary that in our case turned into a 6-hour marathon was just crazy. Whoever at Expat Tours thought even 3 hours was acceptable should be fired. Maybe I missed the fine print somewhere with the information on a 3 hour border crossing! It would have been better to miss Serbia or just drive through Serbia to Budapest and have two days in Vienna where there is actually something worth seeing. If you are a backpacker a budget traveller or a vegetarian you may fine this tour okay. If you enjoy some creature comforts, better-quality hotels and included meals that are edible I would suggest you pay more and book with another tour company. If it was not for Carly, our tour guide, who did her best to keep things on track, Tomi the best coach driver ever and the great people that we met on the tour we would have come home very disappointed.

    Hotels could be of a better standard. Dubrovnik hotel access was poor and baggage needed carrying on too many stairs. Overall, a very satisfying tour. Tour Leader Dee and driver Zoltan were great.

    Had lots of fun. We saw everything stated in the itinerary. Bus was comfortable and bus driver Tomi and tour leader Carly were excellent. Long days, but you get to see a many locations in a short time. You can use the tour to work out where you might want to go back for a longer, more relaxing, stay. By the end, the tour group felt like a family and it was sad to say goodbye on the last day.

    The tour was good and our tour guide- Blake, was excellentl! The main area of improvement is the accommodation. About 1/4 of the hotels are mediocre.

    Tour guide was excellent and most of the walking tour guides were also excellent. A couple of the walking tour guides I didn’t care for. The extra excursions were a bit over priced. We did go to Montenegro as an extra excursion and it was not worth the money- way over priced. We thought the price included a lunch which everyone thought was advertised and that would have made it worth it. Other wise the trip was really good, and the sites, aplenty, were beautiful places to see and learn about.

    Fast pace but expected if you want to see all counties listed on the tour. Blake our tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of the cities visited, was organized humorous & went out of his way to find me a cake for my 70th birthday in Belgrade. The driver Zoltan was friendly & courteous. I enjoyed Budapest Prague for 2 days but next time Vienna needs a 2 day visit too. I enjoyed the smaller cities where we stopped for 2-4 hours to see the historical sights. Rating 5
