      • Guest Service Rating from 144 Reviews

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : Mostly good, but there were too many optional extras that in my opinion could have been included in the trip cost.Product : This trip covered 5000km through Scandinavia and Russia plus Poland and Germany, which is quite a lot of distance to cover in the timeframe of 16 days.

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Value for money. The accommodation was as expected - ie certainly not 5 star, but also not backpacker style rooms and of course, not in the centre of the locations but also 'most' weren't too far out ! The guides were great - knowledgeable and obliging.

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : Had never been on a fully booked tour. Too large a group!Product : Too much. Too many people, too much history, too many miles, too long....

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : The tour guide, Colette, was amazing. The bus was extremely comfortable and the bus driver, Sergi couldn't have been more attentive.Product : My husband and I felt the itinerary was too rushed. There were cities that we didnot get to really see because of the travel distance

      • Trip:
