    all the locations were awesome however one more day in valencia would have been great

  • Anonymous July 2018

    You do zip pretty quickly through each city, but it's really good for seeing a lot in a fairly short amount of time, without the stress of catching trains and planes on your own. I loved it.

  • Raeven B March 2018

    Western Compass hit the main areas in Europe I have been dying to go to! From Spain, to Italy, all the way to the highest point in Europe (Switzerland) this trip was nothing less than an epic dream! 24 days was the perfect length of time to see everything I wanted to see, and fully get the true European experience!
