Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = the perfect mix of group activities and all-important YOU time. Essential. Vital. The must-dos. The unmissables. Whatever you call those bits of Europe that you just HAVE to explore, you can rely on this fast-paced trip to properly school you in them. We're talking Rome, Amsterdam, Venice, Paris... the big guns. But that isn't all - this trip also swings by the likes of quaint little Heidelberg and lakeside stunner Lucerne. And adds in plenty of free time to do your thing. What a mix, right? Quick maths: take two weeks, turn them into something special.

    Very fast paced but a great way to see a lot of Europe!

  • Anonymous October 2023

    There was one hotel and it was probably the worst hotel I've ever been to. Some of the music on the bus was wildly inappropiate. Other than that, everything was perfect.

  • Jaime Al September 2023

    Such an excellent way to see Europe, gives you a great idea of what to see and where you want to go back. It was very fast paced trip so having Alex as our trip leader was great as he was giving us information about the locations before we arrived. Our driver Sergiu was incredible navigating through the cities and also had an incredible amount of information to give us as well! Definitely recommend.
