    It is a great value-for-money tour. I strongly recommend it. The hotels are very good, convenient. You would never be able to make the same tour by yourself with this budget. I will use this company again in future.

    I went on the Expat Explore 8-day European Vistas tour and loved every minute of it! The trip was fast-paced and packed with activities, with some free time built in in a few cities to explore on your own. I was nervous about going on the tour alone, but everyone was friendly from Day 1 and I didn't feel alone at all during the trip. Our tour group had people from all over the world, variety of ages, some families, some couples, and some people traveling alone. It was a great mix of people & personalities, and I feel that everyone found a group of new friends to hang out with for the duration of the tour. I highly recommend this tour if you want to get a taste of the different cities included, in order to figure out where to come back and spend more time later. The only thing I'd change about the trip in hindsight is I would have exited the tour in Paris to have more free time there to visit the museums and churches, and skipped the Belgium part of the tour since it was so rushed anyway. All in all, a phenomenal trip! I would not have been able to do as much as we were able to do in each of our days if I had tried to plan the trip by myself.

    The vehicle provided was in perfect condition. The pilot of the vehicle ( Bas ) blended with the vehicle and make the long journey comfortable. The tour leader was a very committed, focused, humorous, organized and no-nonsense person. He made the tour enjoyable and we very much appreciate the trouble he had taken, for meticulously planning the various details of the tour. The opportunity provided by the company for us to taste the local cuisine at various places was an excellent idea and we are thankful for it. The accommodation and breakfast provided at various destinations was good. For those of us who have complained about the food may keep in mind that we cannot pay peanuts and expect the moon. It was absolutely a value for money tour. It was a fantastic tour and we are thankful to the crew as well as the guys behind the scene who made all the arrangements for us.

    The pace of the tour is intense. You will see many different places and have a wide variety of experiences, but as our tour guide told all of us, "This is a tour, not a holiday." Bring plenty of things to keep you entertained on the bus or plan to sleep. If you have a positive attitude, this is a perfect way to experience Europe in much the same way as you would food at a tapas restaurant. I now have a much better idea of where I would like to spend more time on my next European adventure. Hopefully you will be as lucky as I was and make a bunch of new friends!

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • 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.
