Rich Eltrich "There were so many firsts and wow moments it is hard to pick. Wow moment, the Louve and Shilthorn in Switzerland" This tour exceeded all of my expectations.It was a fantastic way to get a taste of Europe; large cities and small villages.It will make it easy for me to decide where to go and what areas to avoid based on my personal preferences.It showed me how I could do Europe on my own via the back door, but it also demonstrated to me that a small group, like the 28 in this tour (ages 30 to 74), was a great way to travel.Every place we went and toured were just absolutely amazing.Loved it all as each country had a wow moment." The tour was fabulous - overall it met all our expectation.

If you're staying on in Paris, today would be a great day to hop on the train and tackle the sprawling palace and grounds at Versailles.
The guide had impeccable integrity and I was not allowed to worry about anything during the entire trip. I thought Dimitri, our tour guide provided us with lots of background information and insight that helped us enjoy the places we visited. I enjoyed the hotels we stayed in and the food we ate for group dinners.
