      Overall, a very good experience. Value for money, good itinerary, fair hotels and fun and caring guides (except for one - Brandon who in my opinion is very cynical and almost condescending). Brandon was our guide from Frankfurt to Paris ...on July 22-24. He seemed to be always in a hurry and not care. He came across as if he did not want to be there. When I asked him a question, he would be in a hurry and say that's a personal question and would not entertain it at that time. But the question was about our intention of not going with the bus tour at night after the scheduled itinerary because we're going to a friends home for dinner in Amsterdam. He believed this was not a "business" question so he wouldn't answer it then for at that time he was only entertaining business questions. It's not that fact that he's prioritising questions but his way of speaking, it was abrupt and as said earlier, almost condescending. When I asked where was the voted best “French Fries” in Amsterdam - he answered abruptly and curtly, it’s not French fries, we are not in France. Very unfriendly and not “guide -like”. Brandon was an unpleasant experience considering just the day before we had Lex who was our guide from Zurich to Frankfurt on July 21-22. Lex was excellent, nice, helpful and funny! We had fun just being in the bus for hours (there was an accident in the highway from Titisee to Frankfurt and we were stuck in the highway for 2 hours) because he made sure we were comfortable, informed and yes, even entertained. Mickey our guide in Paris from July 24-26 was also great. Mickey was helpful, informative and answered all our questions that we had. She made sure we were taken cared of and when the Paris Hotel did not have airconditioning in the middle of the heatwave, she was even able to work with her company Eugogo to treat us to the River Seine Cruise for free to lift our spirits up. This act which may be considered by many as not enough to compensate AC issue, was very much appreciated. Again, we’re happy overall and would recommend this tour. Read full review

      Everything was organise. Tour leader and driver is experienced. Most important things are told before hand. Hotel in Frankfurt and Amsterdam is very good but not Paris which is way below par.By adding a bit of tour fees for changing to a la...rger hotel in Paris will make a big difference.
