    Exceptional Value

    My recent Tours4Fun tour (9-day France to Central Europe) was excellent! Before I purchased it I was very skeptical of the economical price, but a friend living in Europe convinced me that Europeans take tours like this all the time and lov...e them. The “cons” are that we did a lot of walking (my FitBit clocked 44 miles in 9 days) so the pace of covering so many countries in a short time was sometimes tiring, and there was one hotel in Slovakia that in my opinion didn’t meet minimum standards. However the “pros” definitely far outweighed the cons. We were on brand new tour buses—one a Volvo and one a Mercedes—and Cheung Ho the tour director was excellent… always on time and extremely organized. Several of the hotels were 4 stars so I’m not sure how we stayed in them for what we paid Tours4Fun but they were very nice surprises. And although I remember reading that our daily breakfast would consist of coffee, tea and bread, instead we had a wonderful full hot buffet breakfast every day (I understand that the tours in the U.S. only include continental breakfasts). I can’t wait to take another Tours4Fun trip. Read full review

    Quick way to see major attractions in western europe

    It was our first family visit to Europe and the objective was to see as many places as possible in a cost effective way. We chose tours4fun based on the advice of my brother who had used it in the past. The tour was well organised covering ...some beautiful spots. The bus was comfortable and the hotels were very good and comfortable. The tour guide Lex was a really fun and entertaining person and also very knowledgeable. His tips helped us save time and also cost on eating out. He also gave us some good background on the history of each place. The tour is hectic but considering that the objective was to see as many places, we were prepared with some good walking shoes. I would highly recommend this tour as you get to see some really historic places combined with some naturally beautiful spots. We plan to come back next year and cover Southern Europe. Go for this, if you are a first timer in Europe and want to see a lot of places in a short time. Read full review
