    This was a great tour and covered a lot of places in a short time. Some of the information on the website was not correct - places listed as needing an entry fee were in correct so I had taken more money with me than needed. The meeting point at Frankfurt Station was a bit chaotic as it was a wet day and little instruction had been given prior to the date. The guides didn't arrive until the last minute so everyone was a little unclear as to what was happening. Accommodation places were good and very adequate. I was on an English tour but the guide was not really fluent in English and it would have been good to learn more about the countries we were travelling through.
    The other English tour traveling at the same time had a fabulous guide.
    As this was my last chance to get to Europe it was a great experience to see so much in such a short time.

  • 18-Nov-2019

    Fast paced, knowledgeable tour guide (Alex), excellent accommodations, fantastic scenery, even with certain attractions closed, the alternates were spectacular! The optional dinner in Budapest and the optional concert in Vienna were worth the extra money for the experiences alone. All in all an excellent value as well..

  • 04-Oct-2019

    Fast pace tour. Lots of walking. Bring lots of money because Europe is very expensive. Be ready to pay for public bathrooms use

    Our tour was from Sept 2-8 with Mano. Excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Would do another tour with him. Only complaint is all the hotels were not of the same caliber. Best western in Prague was the worst.

  • 21-Aug-2019

    We recently went on the tour. The sights were fabulous to see in all the different places. I wish I had more time in the cities to explore.It was great having the tour manager book the attractions for us, but make sure you have cash to pay at the end of the week for everything. The hotels were all good except Budapest (Canada hotel) which was okay but in a sketchy area and ac was limited and it was more run down. Unfortunately many people on our tour were not timely which resulted in almost 1 hour or more of lost time each day. Our tour manager did nothing about this really until 6 days in where she did leave one group in Munich so we could all go back to the hotel. Hotels were all 25 minutes from the city centre so it can be expensive to cab back if you wanted more time. We were so rushed at some points that one night dinner was getting sandwiches at a gas station because we had hit construction ( can’t control) but people were also late so going into Slovakia no one really had dinner, and by the time we arrived at the hotel the closest restaurant/ mall had closed due to us having so many delays. It would’ve been nicer to know ahead of time that Slovakia is literally just a sleeping point and there is no exploring done. It made for 2 long days on buses. Overall I would recommend seeing the sights but I would not recommend or use go eu go for travel purposes again. ( also this trip included both couples and families, I would not recommend for children under 10 as there is lots of walking and longer bus rides)

    Its beautiful experience with VIOTOR. IN future also want to make ors counties programme with VIOTOR. thnx to the viatour n Mr DIDIER FLORIAN guide...

  • 18-Apr-2018

    Our tour started in Frankfurt Germany where we were met up by the tour guide Mano. From day one everything was explained very well as to our daily itinerary and information about the cities and history. We were able to see so much in so little time. There was nice space on the bus and the hotels were nice. Check your bed for creatures the weather was definitely in our favor no rain what so ever! It was even too warm at times :. There are additional fees for small activities that the company organized for you if you choose to join in, and we did it is worth it. Due to no more available spaces we did not make the dinner but it was nice to have extra time to eat and explore the city on our own. We met amazing people along the tour as well!

  • 06-Mar-2018

    The trip was amazing! Everything was perfect, starting from our guide Geno. He was the star of the trip, super friendly, making everyone comfortable with enthusiasm and fun atmosphere. Geno showed us around and explained all details in every city and sightseeing place we went. He ensured everyone was happy and never rushed into anything. The trip was so chilled and we enjoyed every single place we went to without feeling it was a fast pace.
    I was traveling solo but met the greatest people during the trip! There are so many places that are great for big fun groups, for example in Budapest the agency organised a traditional dinner we paid extra for but TOTALLY worth it and the whole group had an AMAZING time! Honestly I cant fault anything, everything was perfect, even though the weather was super cold as it was Feb but everywhere we went to was white snowy and nice.
    The hotels were awesome too! Even the 3 star hotels were very nice, clean and super comfortable! I was surprised that we stayed in great hotels like Movenpick, Hilton and Holiday inn.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TRIP WITH GINO!
