    We really enjoyed it and are happy we went. The pace at times was too fast. More walking than expected and had a hard time keeping up with the group at times.

    i would have liked some more time at some of our shortstops, an hour to tour the area and have lunch is impossible.

    Too much hype was placed on optionals so I was sucked into joining all of it. This is not the opinion of mine only,but other travelers as well. Some of the sites visited had either a token or no enterance fees, but we had to pay 25 to 30 Euros to Expat for those optional tours.

    The highlight of the tour is the tour guide. Steve is the best!!! I don’t think we would enjoy the tour as much as we did if he wasn’t the tour guide. Thanks Steve!

    This truly was a trip of a lifetime. Our tour guide Sarah was so fantastic at her job, and it is not an easy job by any means. She carries herself and this company so well. My sister and I loved every second of this tour. Where else can you see a million cities and countries all in two weeks? We enjoyed some amazing food, met even more amazing people, and fell in love with cities we've never been to. Only negative thing I have to say is the buses could be a little more roomy, we had no leg space and it was hard to sleep sometimes but other than that this is a wonderful experience. I will be booking with Expat again soon!

    The bus was cramped and seats were very uncomfortable. No leg room at all. Public transport is more spacious and more comfortable. I was horrified as were many others considering we had 4800km to travel. Too many 6am starts and short breakfasts. Truck stops for lunch were just awful. Most of the hotels were very budget and very small to share. 2 single beds pushed together with no room to even separate them. Expat is very budget but the driver and guide were amazing. I'm so glad we had such a great group or it would of been the worst experience ever. I would not recommend expat to anyone.

    The best part of our tour was the tour leader Sarah, she was simply AMAZING. I could sit here and write an entire review on the ways she went above and beyond for every individual on the tour. About the tour itself, the coach was super comfortable and the stops during our travel days were chosen strategically. The travel days also seemed to fly by thanks to Sarah facilitating various games and/or putting on movies! The included food was excellent, and I am a fairly picky eater! There was never a time I couldn't find something to eat and there was always enough to fill me up. There definitely was a mix of hotels, some perfect and others just okay! But nothing we didn't expect on our trip and the better ones were always a nice surprise! The itinerary was definitely fast paced but it really did give you a taste of Europe and possibly places we would want to go back too! We were hesitant going on a group tour but decided that for the cost and the lack of stress of planning was worth a shot. And we are so happy that we did! Not only did we get to coast through our trip with someone else dealing with the issues but we also were able to make 30 new friends from all over the world! By the end of the two weeks we definitely felt like a big family and it was hard to say goodbye! It was a trip of a lifetime, and thank you so much tour radar and expat !!
