My family and I had a wonderful time with the tour. Although the primary language spoken and explanations of the places visited were in Chinese, Victor the teacher of our guide Silver Lam, came to us and explained us the histories of the places we are about to visit in English. He is a very knowledgeable person in the history of the Bohemians and the Hofburgs of Austria. We will definitely consider taking tours again with this tour company!

I recommend this tour!

Overall it was a great trip, though on two occasions we had not been shown what had been promised by the tour guide and we were not given any explanation as to why not. In relation to Salzburg, it would be great if we could have seen more of the countryside rather than only spending time in the city. Anyhow, we really enjoyed the trip.

I recommend this tour!

Posted by: Prasad on 2013-10-27

I really enjoyed this tour. It was an excellent value for the price paid. My guide, Jack, did his best but I would have liked him to spend more time explaining in English. He spoke Chinese 90% of time. My other recommendation is that TakeTours might be able to provide a kind of audio device where tour details are explained in more detail, and in English. After all, I was told that this is an English / Chinese tour. In doing so, travelers other than Chinese would greatly benefit. I definitely recommend this tour, and I plan to take another loop next year.

I recommend this tour!

The tour was excellent and everyhting was taken care of. My tour guide Tim was great. I just want people to be aware that there is no English speaking guide for this tour, it's Chinese only. I was lucky to have Tim who spoke English as well. Overall, this was a great tour.

An EXCELLENT 7-day Central Europe tour with the best value on all aspects. It's wonderful, memorable, and fun! Our tour guide Mr. Victor Chan is the BEST and deserves the highest praise and appreciation for his excellent service, professionalism and knowledge of the histories of the countries/regions/cities we visited, and his great all-round care to the tour group. We will definitely return next year with another Europe tour with Victor. Thanks again and see you next time!
