            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... Show 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... Show 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... Show 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... Show more

            I have been on a number of different tours over the past few years and this one was definitely one of my favourites. The people and tour guide make all the difference. Jude's was THE BEST tour guide I have ever had. She was professional but super fun at... Show 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... Show more
