    Whirlwind tour! It really is a 'taste' of the countries. It gives you a good idea of where you want to return but in a way it is also a bit frustrating be there and then think i only can only be here briefly and now i need to book to come back! But it's fun to go from one country one day then the next day to be which country are we off to today! The coach is very comfortable. The wifi was a bit on and off but i think it's because we were on the open road so it's understandable. The drive was very relaxing. Seeing the beautiful scenery from the coach window was great and we were even able to capture some great photos as we drove along! One day was a long drive but with a movie it helped pass some of the time. Also we had trivia which was fun! I think a word of advice would be just be prepared to be on the move. It is fast paced. If you see something you like eg a souvenir then get it there and then as there may not be time later. Delve into the culture straight away and try all the delicacies if the opportunity presents itself. Lunch stops are brief. Make sure you keep hydrated. It's a good idea to have euro coins to use the toilets and to carry tissues and a hand sanitiser. The hotels were amazing! Very spacious especially for European standards. The breakfasts were great. Buffet style. Unfortunately it is a bit of a rush due to the time restraints so try to get in quick. But if there wasn't a tight schedule then it wouldn't be possible to see so much! Not all optional activities are a must but some are. I would consider carefully the dinner optionals as they were a little bit rushed however the day time optionals particularly the Switzerland one really is a must!! If you love the idea of seeing soo much in a short time (and really it is an exciting whirlwind!) then this is the tour for you!

    We saw everything described in the tour & more. Our tour leader, Andreea, gave us the history of each area we visited. She also showed us some of her favorite restaurants & sights in some of the cities. It added to the experience to have an insiders view of things. Included dinners were good to excellent; breakfasts ranged from average to wonderful. Our driver, Coen, was amazing! We got to our destinations on time. PS. Mt. Pilates is a must see!

    Itinerary is too tight and too swift...not a breathing moment. The accommodations at three locations did not have AC working....there was no internet or poor internet in two locations. The meals in two locations were poorly organised......

    I had the best time ever. I loved the opportunity to get to know people from so many different places and everyone was so nice. Our tour leader Kim was amazing, I enjoyed every story about every place we were going to. Our driver Pascal was really nice too, always with a smile on his face. I would always recommend this experience.

    the tour was good.Your organisation should have a policy of concessions for senior cetizens.Modern technology should be used instead of hand written notes circulated by tour guide.Guides should be more professional in their appraoach.I was often reminded of the famous Orwellian quotation that"all pigs are equal but some pigs are more equal than others". thank you
