We were anxious about booking this long trip for 14 days riding a coach and moving everyday, but it turned out to be the best decision for our EUROPE tour. Hitting 10 beautiful countries in 14 days, letting you see every bit of it's wonders.... Our tour guide (FLORIAN) was indeed perfect in every single way. He makes sure that we are all fine, having fun and no one is left out. He is very knowledgeable and he did exceed our expectation. Looking forward to book another tour - targeting SPAIN to LONDON with FLORIAN as our guide! Worth every cent. ** Reservation process was fast **Customer Service is reliable **Accommodations are far from the central area but are big and comfortable with enough amenities **Transportation was convenient, clean and just right **Tour Guide/s: We had 2 since we had a long trip. Florian was outstanding while our 2nd guide - Sebastian was just SO SO. **Tour Itinerary: If you want to see most of Europe in a limited time, then this is by far the best! Read full review
