We love the Europe tour because not only do they offer flexibility on how many days you want to go, but they run the tour smoothly and professionally. Buses are new and top notch. Our tour guide, Jackie, puts the word "leader" in tour leader. He is a veteran in the industry with so much knowledge about the places and history. Accommodation is also excellent even though they are usually outside the city. But I see some other high-priced tours stay in the same hotel as well. Like other tours offered by TakeTours, it is fast-paced tour.

I recommend this tour!

It is a very nice experience. The guide was nice, and he spoke little English that helped us but most of the time he spoke in Chinese. However, the time for visits is very short. We did not enjoy with places running to come and go on time. The tour needs more time in each place or cancel some of the cities to be able to enjoy more. Also the breakfast is not nice with a very limited quantity. Thanks for everything.

I recommend this tour!

My family and I enjoyed this tour for the most part. It was nice to have a Chinese-speaking tour guide (Tim) for the sake of my parents. He spoke mostly Mandarin with a little bit of Cantonese only to cover the essentials (meeting times, locations, etc.) It was easy to find the departure point and all in Paris. The tour consisted of a lot of time on the bus going from city to city. We stopped in each city and had just enough time to eat and take pictures usually. The tour bus was packed with about 50 people. The hotels we stayed in were very nice. Although I wish we had more time for independent exploring and better food options (a majority of our meals were at highway truck stops), I understand the time constraints of such a busy itinerary and think it is a great tour for people who are looking to see only the essentials in many cities in a limited amount of time. FYI, although the tour departs from Paris, the tour doesn't cover Paris, only southern France. in my opinion, it may not be the most exciting option for younger travelers (people in their 20-30s), but it was a great introduction to Italy. I would recommend it to people who are looking to do less planning on their own.

The whole tour was interesting and comprehensive though a bit tiring. We had opportunity to try various local food as food was not included but arranged by the tour guide.

I recommend this tour!

Posted by: ONG on 2013-05-18

The tour though a bit rush covers a lot of places and was conducted professionally by an experienced guide under Mr. To. It is quoted as budget tour but the quality of the tour, the hotels which were mostly 4 stars, was comparable to any internationally organized ones.

This tour was very nice. we visited many amazing places in a short time. we saw many places that we couldn't see them by ourselves .in some cities we had enough time but very short time for some places ( for example pisa tower we had just 30 min.) we booked for English tour but it canceled and we had to trip with Chinese tour and our tour guide spoke in 2 Chinese language for a long time and short time in English . the hotels and breakfast were ok , we will plan for next one. thanks for all things

The tour is excellent for people like my wife and I. We don´t have much time to travel, so we saw a lot of beautiful places in a short time. It is a lot of driving but is ok. Our tour guide was an excellent person, his name is Victor and without him it would not have been the same. He was very very nice and we really enjoyed his direction, advice, and help. My wife loved this tour and now she is planning the next one. The hotels are ok, clean and comfortable, not luxury but you are not paying for luxury. I think it is an excellent relation price-quality.

It was a wonderful trip although there was a lot of driving, but you can visit many amazing places in a short time. I loved this trip and I've wanted to go back the moment I got home.
