Hey guys, My name is Alex. I am going on the European-Whirl tour in July-August. I don't think I have words to describe how excited I am about this. I have been to London before but nowhere else in Europe. My dream was to go to Russia, but after finding this tour, I couldn't say no. This is a trip of a lifetime and I can't wait to meet new people and learn from all the cultures I will be mee... More

29 Jul 2011 - 17 Aug 2011 \ When I signed up for my trip, I soon realized this was going to be quite the eye opener. Luckily, my tour had a facebook group. I did what anybody would do, and that was to check out what the people were like that I would be spending about 20 days with. I was shocked when I was only 1 of 3 Americans going on the trip. Then I thought, how awesome is that? I am around Americans 24/7, so it will be great to meet these awesome people from other countries. I can honestly say that I have friends for life now from all over the globe because of this trip. Our tour guide Adam and bus driver Pete did a great job getting everyone comfortable with eachother and making us all laugh. The places we went on this tour were so unreal. I have never been so in aww of a place before. Everything we saw was so old compared to what I'm used to back in the States. We saw things that were almost 1000 years old. All of the excursions were well worth the money. Do NOT miss out on the river cruises or anything that involves food. First off, it's a great way to experience the city and an even better way to get to know everybody. Just wait till you get to Amsterdam, was not expecting my first night there to be so Amsterdam(ish) What you hear and see in movies doesn't do it justice. It's one wild city. There were so many historical sites to see and I would definitely suggest doing the Anne Frank museum, talk about humbling. I suggest you do what me and some others did in Switzerland. We went hiking the mountains while the other went up to the top of the mountain to ski. That is only because I am used to snow, many people on tour have never seen snow, so of course they are going to want to try skiing out. But you get to see the most amazing sites when you climb the mountains trails and go off the beaten path. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat. So amazing.
