The tour guide was cheerful and willing to help in any way possible to ensure the comfort of each individual passenger - even when it came to purchasing extra days of the nearest hotel! The bus driver also bought us little knick knacks when we were in Paris, which i thought was very sweet. The accommodation was between Hilton and Ibis hotels. Ibis is small but the staff were very friendly and the hotels are in central locations (i.e near the train stations or a short taxi drive away) from the main attractions. The only problem i had with the transportation on the bus is that the toilet wasn't working at the time. However, the driver accommodated the passengers by stopping every 2 hours at a rest stop once we had a long journey ahead.

We were able to see so much in a short amount of time. It was also very budget-friendly, even with the addition of 5 euros/day, as compared to other tour companies. Our tour manager, Sebastian was very knowledgeable and was very helpful! Our driver, Fred, was also exceptional! Both made sure that we were able to get to our destinations on time. All accommodation were good as well, except for the one in San Remo (which we found really outdated and not up to par with other hotels). It was also quite far from the drop-off point. So if you're tired, you won't really bother going out unless necessary. Also, even though most of them are clean and well-equipped, they are really far from the city centre so if you wanna see other city centre attractions, you'd really have to purchase those offered by TakeTours. Despite these, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another tour from them! :)

I visited Europe a few times, but this time, I was going with a group of first time travelers who wanted to see a lot of places in a limited time; after extensive research online, only TakeTours seemed to offer what we were looking for. We booked an 8-day tour on the Red-Green loop from Frankfurt, and I mentally prepared myself for an exhausting whirlwind tour where they say "you won't remember where the photos were taken" kind of trip. But I must say, this was one of the best trips I've ever had! We had a blast visiting six countries in 8 days! The tour took us to the most famous cities, and we took great photos in each of the tourist spots in our bucket list. Surprisingly, if you just align yourself with the schedule and instructions given by the tour guide, there was actually enough time to admire the scenery, take selfies, grab a bite, buy souvenirs and just take in the atmosphere. We did all that! As someone used to booking everything myself, it's great to just sit back, relax and have someone organize it all for you at a great price. Our first guide, Daniel, was so systematic, informative, and funny! Our second guide, Florian, was very efficient, engaging, and knowledgeable- his stories made the places come alive! Both guides were very professional and seemed to really know what they were talking about. The downsides were the long bus rides, with breaks every two hours; the hotels were okay but far from the city center. However, if you manage your expectations well, TakeTours is a great way to see a lot of Europe in a short time and for such a good price!

First time in Europe and this tour offered all the sights and experience I was looking for. I would do it again even if I had to pay more. Tour Manager was good and met a lot of nice people. One unforgettable moment, the lunch in Venice!
