    Overall pretty cool trip, hotels were nice and in heart of city. tickets and guide were good too. Only problem i see is train travel and our check in times didn't matched. Eg: we reached Florence at 11:45 and our hotel check in was at 3 PM and hotel didn't allocate us room until that point. Same with Rome and Paris. Next time, maybe you can take care of this arrangement it would be much appreciated.

    We had an amazing trip and I only wish we had more time in Switzerland to see Geneve and Zurich too. Other than that it was great and very high standard of hotels! Sightseeing tours were very informative and guides very friendly too. Transportation by train is really fast and convenient, especially after my 2 trips to Europe where we travelled by bus for 6 hours a day. Here it was smooth and within just 1.5-3 hours we got to the next city. I highly recommend Discovery Nomads and would love to travel with them again.

    Despite repeated requests for tour documents after full payment of tour cost, we weren’t provided full and final details until 12 days (8/9) before departure at which point we were already overseas. Alarmingly there were some significant deviations from the advertised details sent by Tour Radar in March 2017 and the final tour brief. Train times previously obtained were changed in the final documents and the claim that Hotels are centrally located and are either walking distance from train stations or 1-2 stops by metro/bus was the not the case in all but Lucerne and Paris. You failed to define walking distance. In Florence there was no way you could walk to the hotel and likewise in Venice and in both instances taxis were needed. Also, the hotel in Venice was a considerable distance from the sightseeing and there wasn’t any transportation on the street on which the hotel is situated. Tour Radar in the submission of the travel documents advised that we were to present the travel voucher to the tour leader; there was no such person in our case, we were surprised that it was a do it yourself tour without any overall guidance. In the tour description from Tour Radar and Discovery Nomads they speak of a Paris sightseeing tour, which was actually in our case a Free Walking Tour from the Latin Quarter to the Tuileries Gardens and which we were expected to tip the tour leader at the conclusion as he had not received any payment for our inclusion. The promised tour was meant to include the Arc de Triomphe and Napoleon’s Tomb and it didn’t, a false claim. The Louvre Museum Tour was not a tour, it was merely being giving tickets and being led to the appropriate line after 10 minutes of talk based on a book on the history of the building and nothing about the art contained within. This is not a tour it is assistance for entry it is a false claim on your brochures. The train times were changed from a previous statement by Discovery Nomads from 09:18 to 16:18 which disrupted plans already in place in Venice and didn’t allow for any forward planning for Lucerne. In Venice there was advertised optional activities of vaporetto ride to Murano and Burano, Peggy Guggenheim and the Academia Gallery but in the final documents had been deleted. The Uffizi Gallery Guided Visit listed in the Tour Radar brochure emailed to us was deleted from final documents and no vouchers were ever issued for our use. This again is false advertising. I am considering contacting consumer affairs about your false advertising alerting other travellers on trip advisor and other similar forums. I await your reply.

    Dear Michael, Thank you for your review. We informed you after the booking that the Voucher and other travel documents will be sent 10 days prior to departure. This is standard practice and we sent you the documents within the stated period. You asked for the train departure times and we answered that departures are usually scheduled in the morning and sent you an approximate timing noting that it depends on the availability. We do not define the exact hotel distances to attractions but we offer hotels that are centrally located and either walking distance to the train station/attractions or a short ride by public transport. The tour you were booked in was an independent tour and you meet with the guide only for sightseeing tours. Vaporetto ride to Murano and Burano, Peggy Guggenheim and the Academia Gallery are activities that we advise to do in Venice and none of them included in the tour, as well as Ufizzi Gallery please read “what’s included” section. Those activities can be added to the tour for an extra cost. Louvre museum tour includes an introduction and main facts about the museum and entrance tickets. Nevertheless, we hope you enjoyed your trip and had a great time in Europe. Best Regards, Discovery Nomads Team.

    It was an amazing tour and I am looking forward to go on another one soon. The guides were great and it was so good that everything was organised though we still had some free time to do what we wanted. Kate sent us a list of absolutely amazing restaurants so the the problem of where to go for dinner was solved automatically. I also liked that the tour operator was so flexible and we amended our departure date at no cost and added a few days more in Italy. Transportation was easy go and trains were super comfortable. It was our first time in Europe and we visited all the highlights I've always dreamed of. Overall great experience!

    the most stressful time was realizing i never received the email with all the train tickets...until we were overseas and needed them. They were sent to me pretty promptly when asked (she said "resent" but my check of emails shows onlly the itinerary was sent. Additionally, each tour guide waned to see my name on the itinerary- it was nowhere on the itinerary. ALso the free country guides only came in the email with the train tickets- would have been nice to have that in advance. MOre information about how to actually get to the hotels/tours would have been nice- the second most stressful part of the trip.

    Dear Griffin, Thank you for your review. Travel documents were sent to you via email promptly before your departure. We uploaded your Voucher on TourRadar and notified in messenger that other documents will be sent asap via email. We also resended that email once again when you asked. Again in the email, we informed you, that in order to attend sightseeing tours you will need your reference number and passport or ID to confirm your name. Hotels that we offer are located close to train stations/meeting points for sightseeing tours and using a city map, which you can take at any hotel, should not be a problem. I hope you nevertheless enjoyed your trip and had a great time in Europe. Best Regards, Discovery Nomads Team.

My fiancé and I will take Discovery Adventures into consideration four our next trip and can recommend them to anyone.

      It is a great site for looking at different offers. I am very excited about my upcoming trip later down in the year. I have recommended TourRadar to friends and family who want to travel. It is simple to book and secure tours. The communication is fast from tour companies which are needed when considering investments such as tours.
