    Renee was great and really was very knowledgeable and helpful about exploring each city. Stefan was a very funny and great driver. They with the group made this experience one to remember!

    A whirlwind trip through some of the most incredible places! Renee gave a fantastic historical overview of each city, and the optional activities gave a great mix of history, culture and food (as well as a few epic nights out). Being winter, we had snow and cold days, but less crowds and the chance to explore every city. I highly rated the Moulin Rouge, the Colosseum and Vatican Tours, the Rome Food Tour, and the walking tours in each city. The trip was made even more magical by the Christmas markets throughout.

    The trip was definitely made by the awesome tour leader and driver (Renee and Jaka) - they made everyone feel included, joined in on activities and dinners, and had everyone laughing and having fun.
