Anna "My experience was fabulous! Saw so many cities and learned so much throughout my time in Europe. However, I feel like I did not get to see every city as much as I had wanted to. It is a good tour to get a sample of all the cities and then decide which ones you want to come back to. My tour guide was phenomenal. So smart and knew so much history about every place we went! She also was very fun and ..."

    This trip was really disappointing. We lost a day in Athens because we missed the ferry (even though we all arrived on time). The majority of the accommodation was shocking as we stayed in camping villages which was located on the outskirts of the city... Read more

    Ruta was such a great guide!! Always so nice and knew what she was talking about. Also our bus driver Sabi was great!!!!! A few of the places were a bit dirty and/or outside of city center too much. And while the dinners were always amazing, I did get a... Read more

    This is an introduction tour, so only 1-2 days in each city. Wake ups were from 5 am- 8 am on travel days. Hostels and included meals were not that great. Topdeck scheduled a ferry during a Greek national holiday, so we had to come back to Athens early and... Read more

    I felt the itinerary was too hectic to enjoy the cities. Only one day in Rome and a few hours in Florence! And the "overnight ferry" to Greece was actually 24 hours so the total travel time was basically two whole days. There was also a scheduled holiday in... Read more

    Going on a group tour was an experience that I was anxious for, but the 16 days I spent travelling with Judes and the group were absolutely amazing. This tour is a great taster for some of the most beautiful sights Western Europe has to offer, however it... Read more

    Judes was the best tour guide anyone could ever hope for. I was only with her for a short two weeks, but in that two weeks she became a big sister/mum to me. Judes has a wealth of knowledge she would always amaze me with how much she knew about each... Read more
