    Overall, a great trip. The itinerary was excellent. The tour guide was professional, decent, polite, and helpful this time around. The driver was hospitable, treated us like guests in his home and went the extra mile to please, beside being very skillful of course. With long drives like we did, coach Wi-Fi access is very important, and the service needs improvement. The single supplement charge was too high.This is a turn off for me as I travel solo most of the time and like my privacy. Some of the hotels were not up to expectations. One meal was just too small for an adult .

    We were left behind on the first day with no effort for apologies or to allow us to catch up during the city tour. The bus left at two minutes after stated time for departure. Tour guide made no effort to locate us, as we were simply in the hotel lobby looking for our group... I in fact chased the bus as it drove away. Caroline stated, she would not apologize as she was "doing her job as tour leader". Another couple was left behind while on our way out of town. Now granted we did wait for a fair amount of time...however they made contact with Caroline within 2 blocks of our leaving the hotel and she declined turning around to get them. Caroline lacked basic interest in her group and showed limited interest the tour. I thought it was a shame she never ate with the group or interacted. She failed to point out major nearby attractions that otherwise seemed would have been on every tour guide's radar. The trip itself was a bit rapid. It's difficult to tell from the itinerary just how little time you will be spending in cities. For example, four hours in Oslo is ridiculous. We did not even see Lillehammer at all. Hotel locations related to the train in such cities could be better described. It would have also been helpful to know we could have taken a 3 minute, $4 train ride to our first hotel in Copenhagen from the airport, rather we ended up on a 10 minute, $18 cab ride. Most disappointing is that all of this has been outlined in email to Tourradar prior to my writing this review (I waited to write), but beyond the canned "we'll look in to it", nothing was addressed. Hotels and included breakfast was nice Bus was modest, but comfortable Of course, the cities we visited were beautiful and full of life

    This was a superb way to see three countries within 12 days. Although some bus trip days were very long, it was worth it to see the countryside. I really enjoyed this tour!

    This was my 3rd tour with Ex-Pat, and much like the others it was excellent - well organized, professional, fun, informative, and filled with great memories. I would recommend this company to anyone considering a group tour. Dave Owen, Windsor, Canada

    The driver was the best of the whole trip. The included meals were the worst, both the quality and the service. The rest was commeci commeca, nothing to write home about. Would we take it again? Depends on how much is the discount.
