    Good value. We visited several cities in Europe. Great guide, Clara Crawford is uniquely qualified for this line of work. Highly recommended for people who like traveling without spending in excess.

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Overall, we were highly disappointed with our experience with COSMOS. Our major complaint is the extensive amount of time spent on the bus. The time spent on the bus was clearly not detailed on the tour description. For example, the first day on the bus we spent 15 hours traveling and di not have dinner until midnight at McDonalds. Additionally other days included 10 - 12 hours on the bus. Also, the tour was consistently late. This did not enable us to see the cities as we has hoped for, since we had minimal time before we had to be back on the bus. When we were informed that the ride from Switzerland to Paris would be 10 hours, we booked a train so we would have time to see Paris. We had hoped that our luggage could remain on the bus since we paid for the tour. Unfortunately, COSMOS would not allow it. Additionally, COSMOS requested that we sign a waiver that we were to leave for the day to protect the company. We did not feel tha the interest of the customer was the priority! As a final note, the last hotel in Paris was extremely small and the air conditioning was broken. In conclusion, we are very disappointed, and do NOT recommend this tour to anyone!

    3.0 - Average

    This is a great trip and does what it says - A Taste of Europe! The downside was the distance traveled, particularly from Lucerne to Paris - this is a 12 hour bus trip and really felt like a wasted day. If it was possible to take the train for this part of the tour, you could spend more time in Paris!!! The tour guide was all about the rules on the bus and took a long time to warm to the group, he obviously enjoyed the latter part of the trip and became more enthusiastic towards the end of the tour. Accommodation was often a long way from the city. Particularly Amsterdam, where we stayed out by the airport - 20 minutes from the city and a 50-80 Euro taxi. Nothing to do there Some beautiful scenery and a lovely part of the world to visit!
