    The tour walks a lot. Not good for people who cannot walk far. The tour guide is not considerate to older people. Some hotel has no lift who has to walk stairs to your room .

    The trips with Expat are a GREAT deal and a fantastic way to explore Europe. Our tour guide Steve and driver Dominic were excellent, accommodation provided was suitable, and the cities were phenomenal. The office staff were very warm and helpful. Overall, possibly one of the best ways to tour, especially on a budget. Looking forward to my next tour with them!

    This tour was amazing. We got to see a lot of places in a short amount of time, yet didn't feel too rushed. This tour was part of a larger 26 day tour. Joining the group on their day 9, the tour guide does a great job of getting you right into your tour and introducing the other members. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and experienced. He had a lot of tips for each city/town we visited and really went above and beyond for whoever had any questions or concerns. I was a solo traveler and would definitely recommend to anyone. There was a wide range of ages in our group and the pace of the tour really accommodated to everyone.

    Being the tour guide for a diverse group, culture and different walks of life is certainly not an easy job. Gayle made it look easy. This is quite evident in her since, she just not enjoys doing it for a living, but she loves doing it. She has the passion for it! She always has grace under pressure and is very professional, as evidenced by a few challenging situations. In Montecatinni, the hotel didn't reserve enough rooms to accomodate all of us. There were 6 of us who were added in Rome to the Ultimate Europe tour, I guess the hotel overlooked that and we were missing 3 rooms. It was an inconvenience to drag our luggage to another hotel but at the end of the day we were given beds to sleep. Also in Barcelona we had a dinner mishap where our dinner was so delayed due to another group eating what was supposed to be ours, we ended up eating close to 11pm. Gayle had addressed all of these situation to the best of her ability. This is my first Europe tour and when the opportunity comes again to travel, I will pick Gayle again (if possible) to be my tour guide with Expat explore. She has a wealth of information for all the countries visited and she makes sure that everyone is on board the coach before leaving so nobody gets left behind, to me that's dedication.

Questions & Answers

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

    • June 20, 2016

      Are there any luggage restrictions?

      You are permitted to take one piece of main luggage with you on the coach to a maximum weight of 20kg. In addition to your main bag, you will need a small daypack for your everyday things (e.g. camera, water bottle, sun cream, hat etc.) while travelling, sightseeing or on overnight excursions. Try to keep this bag as light as possible and make sure that all main sections of your bags can be padlocked.

    • June 1, 2016

      Would you recommend we use bring a large back pack or just a regular suit case?

      I would suggest a regular suite case, Make sure you are able to carry it as not all placed have elevators through out Europe. Please find the recommended luggage information from Expat Explore, as per their trip notes, below.

      Luggage
      On all tours you will have to carry your own luggage (e.g. into hotels and up to your room if hotels don't have lifts). It is up to you to remember to collect all of your bags when leaving a hotel or the coach. Don't pack more than you can
      comfortably carry - if you struggle to lift your bag once it is packed (and before you have bought any souvenirs), you have certainly packed too much! You will not be permitted to store luggage in the coach overnight. You are permitted take one piece of main luggage with you on the coach to a maximum weight of 20kg. If you arrive with more luggage than this you may be asked to leave it behind.

    • June 1, 2016

      What time does the tour end?

      The coach usually returns to London at the end of the tour at approximately 6 pm, however London traffic is unpredictable and can cause delays.

      We recommend when booking flights, that you book to fly the day after the tour ends.

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Megan5th November 2017
      I tried to book a tour with TourRadar but there had been a pricing error. They got back to me almost immediately and apologized for the inconvenience and even gave me a small credit. Very impressed with how it was handled and will def book a tour with them again soon.
