    Written on September 24, 2018
    4.0 - Good

    It was a very well run tour. Grace (she really knew her history and was well organised) and Paul (our driver) were excellent. Accommodation was great apart from a couple of hotels (Sweden in particular which was not good and the ferry which was so noisy we couldn't sleep). Our only complaint was that it was a very full on tour and we didn't get to see enough of some places. I would have preferred 2 nights in each place as I felt we needed longer in the Baltic states. Some very long days on the coach but overall an enjoyable experience.

    If I had a tour member crying during a tour I would step up and ask why. I would not scold tour members and I would go the extra mile to help when asked for information. My tour members would be taken care of not just found free bathrooms, although they were appreciated. A young lady that tried very hard to do a good job but who has a lot to learn about taking care of people.

    This was my first time with Expat. The weather was nasty the entire trip and it certainly changed the tone of other trips I have taken. It rain everyday. The tour guide and driver were exceptional and made the trip very pleasant.

    Guide was terrific, hotels were adequate, trip was very well conceived and well executed within a budget. I would certainly use Expat Explore again for a tour that suited my destination requirements and timetable.

    We had more travel time then city time in the first 3 days. You shouldn't advertise we are visiting a city when we are only there for 90 minutes and the bus picks us up to take us to our out of town hotel. Also it was not 18 days. It was 17.

    Expat Explore Travel is one of the best that I experienced, I booked with them last year, this year I was with them again for the Northern Explorer for 18 days; Willy Our tour guide is one of a kind person, funny and handsome man; and surprise !! Carl and Jack the co-founder of Expat Explore were with us in the tour, and they are both down to earth and accommodating; the tour itself is so amazing and we visited most of the major tourist spots; the accommodations are best since most were near the tourist spots and transport area; I do highly recommend Expat Explore for your tours and that is why I booked again a tour for 2017 on their 1st Balkan Explore..

    Carly was our guide, did a great job of keeping us on time. Hotels were all good and only one was a bit far from downtown. I would have liked more rest days but then the tour would have been longer and more expensive. Good value for your money.
