    The 12 day Europe Explore was busy, but well organised. It covered all the spots we were looking for, but would have been excellent as a 15 day tour allowing extra nights in some places like Florence, Venice Munich or Amsterdam. Allover, we were well satisfied with what we paid for.

    Gayle always ensured we had all the information we needed to make the most of our time and get the most of our experiences. She was very professional, informative of the history/culture in the countries we visited and very approachable. You could tell that she was experienced and loved to travel, and although she was sick for most of the tour, she attended to our needs 110%.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Can you provide help with visa processing?

    Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

  • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

    Rooms are twin or double share and if you're travelling solo, then you'll be sharing with someone of the same gender unless there is a mandatory single supplement in which case you will have your own room. You can also request your own room for an additional cost.

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
