    I am 100% certain that my trip wouldn’t of been as colourful, informative, and mindblowing if I had not had Ant. His balance of fun and history was exactly what I wanted in a tour guide. I had the greatest time of my life and I owe that to Ant.

    Jody was an exceptional tour guide. So much so that when i went on another tour after Jody's the standards were just not there as she had set such a high bar. A tour guide can make your tour unforgettable or just ok. In Jody's case she made our European... Read more

    • Geraldine5th June 2018
      Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
