The trip was good but it could have been better, for example when we went to Venice, the waters were flooding and we shouldn’t have gone out in the waters. It was filthy and we were in the water for a long time. So instead we should have done a different place or did things that didn’t require us to walk through waters waist deep.
We had a great group of people from 19-35 years old who were all there for a good time. The bus was crowded with 53 people (esp the 8 hour driving day) but we all just got on with it. It was tiring travelling every second day but we got to see more places so I guess that's the trade-off. Everyone was on time and respectful of the holiday everyone else wanted to have. The hotels were not central to the city and we heavily relied on public transport, ubers and taxis. Some people in our group were ripped off by a taxi so be careful. Overall good trip.
The countries we visited and the scenery on the way (so travelling between countries) was amazing!! Experiencing Europe during winter is something I would highly recommend - thats if you can handle the cold!! Overall it was a pretty good tour, with the only down side being that I because this particular was apart of a much bigger one, it was hard to get to know some of the people and it seemed like they didn't want to make the effort as well. Also the hotels/hostel were good, sometimes we were lucky enough to be upgrade at the hotels - nothing beats a decent shower and a comfy bed!! Global Journeys were awesome in helping me book the tour, especially since I booked very late and was travelling at the time - Yvonne, you a champion and I really appreciate all your help! Between all the countries, scenery, food, beer and the excursions ( included and optional extras) I would recommend this tour ( hopefully with some nicer people!!)
