    Would not recommend “Berlin to London on a shoestring” YOLO tour as G Adventures did not provide added value. Met some great people in my group but apart from this, my experience was no better than it would have been had I booked/travelled on my own without G Adventures and in fact, it was probably worse. I expressed my feedback to G Adventures and received a concerned response from their CEO (the actual CEO, not the Tour Guide) as well as a detailed explanation from a Customer Service rep that unfortunately didn’t offer any confirmation as to how the issues I experienced would be prevented in the future. I also received a credit of $200 that is currently being processed back to my credit card. Key issues: -Arrived day 1 to find that arrangements hadn’t been made for my room assignment at the hostel. Checked back 3 times, everyone else was already in their room, hostel finally made arrangements for me (in my own room, bonus) and solved the problem themselves as they couldn’t track down the CEO. Bottom line—issue was rectified and apologized for by the hostel, not G Adventures. -Initial meeting – no notice was ever posted and no information was provided to the hostel as to the meeting time. Had to hang around and track down members of the tour group to figure out timing of meeting. Expect to be asked to provide your passport number and insurance information all over again. -Hostel for first 2 nights in Berlin was incredibly noisy due to big group of school students. Up ‘til 3am both evenings and reviews on the hostel suggest that this is an ongoing issue. Reported to G adventures hoping they would respond that they would reconsider this hostel however their response was that they “vet hostels carefully” and can’t control behaviour of other travellers in the hostel. -All of the above issues in combination took away from my ability to enjoy my 2 days in Berlin to the fullest and wasted precious time I could have used to experience the city to the fullest. Other things to consider: There is only 1 group activity for this tour (bike tour) and 2 orientation walks. You will have to plan ahead and organize all of your own optional activities and in my case the CEO did not have any authentically local knowledge or tips beyond what is in a standard guidebook. Ultimately, the only value G Adventures added was linking me up with other travellers, booking hostels, 1 train and 2 bus transfers. The bus took double the length of time versus a train and I arrived at each destination twice as tired and worn out as I would have via train travel. According to G Adventures the bus is a better way to experience travel. In both cases our buses were delayed and it took away from the experience. Also note that breakfast may not be included with each hostel and in some cases you may depart too early to take advantage of it. Bottom line, in my case, for less than the price of the tour, I could have had private rooms in hostels or budget hotels in each destination and travelled by train. I also would have known exactly where I was staying from the outset. For that reason, I would not recommend this or similar tours.
