This was such a great taster of Europe and going in the Winter was truly a solid decision. The lines were shorter and you're guaranteed to be with people who are also interested in spending their winter holidays doing something awesome. If you've never been to Europe (me at the time of choosing this tour) this is an excellent way to see a lot, check off bucket list items, and get an idea of where you'd like to go again for some more in depth exploration. Our driver, Erno, was excellent. And our guide, Adam, was a history buff, had excellent DJ skills, and was always ready to recommend food/activities/museums/sites to anyone who asked. You spend quite a bit of time on the coach, but that's when you get to see the countries roll by and the scenery change so I didn't mind it at all. It's also where you nurse your hangover if Amsterdam did a number on you. The extra-time activities where all wonderful and worth it. This was a pretty awesome way to start 2019.

I highly recommend this especially if it’s a first Europe traveling. Be sure to ask them add ons before leaving your country so you budget accordingly. It was nice doing a group travel and honestly the tour guide is extremely helpful and Incase you want to know about the hotels and food Amsterdam-hotel was good, nice breakfast warm and the room sizes where okay. Germany- was probably the worst hotel not because it was dirty or anything but it had very old school decor our room was huge though and the food wasn’t a buffet like the previous hotel but it was good Italy- was the best hotel in terms of room quality reputation n food because we stayed at holiday inn Switzerland was the tiniest and least private I was lucky because I was traveling with a friend because there wasn’t a bathroom just a shower with frosted glass leading straight to the bedroom. France- was a good room the space wasn’t much but it was decent and so was the food Just search Ibis hotels because that’s where we stayed mostly and we stayed at the ibis budget in Switzerland
