“Magnificent Cities of Central & Eastern Europe”
- QLD, Australia Jul 2019

Overall the tour was OK. Hotels and locations of the hotels were good. However some of the coach journeys were long, especially from Budapest to Krakow and Krakow to Warsaw. Could have cut out going to Donaly in Slovakia as we only stopped for lunch there. Seemed a bit of a waste of time as we were then caught up in road works all the way to Warsaw which made the journey very slow. The coach driver and Tour Manager would have been aware of the road works and the day could have been better more

“Collette tour of Eastern European Capitals”
- QLD, Australia May 2017 18 Helpful Votes View Photo

The Collette tour went well. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see a little more of Eastern Europe. I think it was good value for the money, Eastern Europe seems to be quite a bit cheaper than other parts of Europe (excluding Berlin and Vienna which are more expensive).
Prague was really crowded at the major destinations eg the castle and Charles Bridge, it's a trendy youth destination it seems. I enjoyed all the other destinations however, more
