What our clients are saying about touring through Eastern Europe & Russia
“Great trip through the Imperial Cities”
Great last minute trip through the Imperial cities with Collette. Our river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest had been cancelled due to low water levels so this trip with Collette was very last minute. Many thanks to Jemma from Global Journeys for organising everything for us with such short notice.
“Country Roads of Croatia”
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of the 14 days Country Roads of Croatia. Definitely happy that we did not go in the peak summer season, as the crowds were still packed. Out Tour Director Irina was amazing and very attentive to all of our needs. Even though we have travelled quite a bit, we were still amazed to see and hear about the lakes and waterfalls and the beautiful caves in Slovenia, that we were previously unaware of. Thank you for organising our booking.
“Fascinating journey through the former Eastern Bloc of Europe”
This trip had a focus on the fascinating recent history of these countries including the fall of Communism, however it also covered the highlights of medieval and imperial history and sights of the region. It was our first APT trip, and despite concerns of lots of retirees, the group ended up being a good mix of like minded travellers in their 40s to 60s. Both the tour director Nick and all of the local guides were excellent - knowledgeable and friendly. Despite the need to change our initial ...read more plans due to circumstances out of our control, Juliet of Global Journeys was constantly helpful and supportive. We would book with both Global Journeys and APT again.
“Wonderful 8 day Highlights of Russia tour with Trafalgar Costsaver”
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, from the moment we were picked up from the airport until the end. My suitcase did not arrive, the Trafalgar representative at the airport was very kind and our Travel Director (Ilya) did all he could and luckily my suitcase arrived at the hotel the next day. The first evening when the Travel Director went through it all was a bit confusing and it turned out there weren't many excursions included in the actual tour so with the optional excursions we wanted to do we needed ...read more to pay an extra $1200. But it was all worth it. Our accommodation was great, the bus was comfortable, our driver (Ivan) was extremely good and the local guides we had in St Petersburg and Moscow were extremely knowledgeable and organised. Our Travel Director was also very organised and nothing was too much for him. This was our second Costsaver tour and I would not hesitate to book another one.

5 Budget Trips through Eastern Europe
Much of Eastern Europe is less-travelled than its Western counterparts, often meaning fewer crowds and a bit more to discover off the beaten track. With plenty of history and epic scenery, why not consider doing a tour through Eastern Europe? No need to break the bank doing it either! Check..
