How to Choose a Perfect Tour Type?

 
Visas to Europe

The secret of a great European vacation hides in careful planning and special attention to detail. Taking that into consideration, we strive to create a product of exceptional value coupled with the uniqueness of the experience. Of course, everything is comparative and, in order to ease the process of your decision-making, we would like to provide you with an illustrative introduction of our private and small group tours for you to choose what suits you best!

Generally, both tour types, private and small group, have their common pros. Firstly, all travelers can count on included private airport pick-ups and high-speed transportation according to the itinerary. Secondly, we select only experienced drivers and local certified guides who have outstanding knowledge of the destination in order to provide our travelers with an authentic insider experience. And thirdly, both tour types imply itineraries based on the optimal combination of guided sightseeing hours and free time to give you enough space to immerse into the location at your own pace.

 

Small Group Tours

Setting off on a journey in a tiny group of fellow travelers is, indeed, a great option to pick as it offers the chance to make new friends as well as includes plenty of appetizing travel opportunities, all according to a pre-planned well thought through fixed program. Not to mention the best value for money, of course! If you are searching for the arguments in favor of this tour type, here they are:

 

 

Small group tours to Europe

  • The group is an intimate company of 14 people or fewer
  • Private airport pick-ups (no need to wait for the rest of the
    group at the airport)
  • Stays at nice city-center 4 and 5-star hotels with included breakfasts, always with great locations in the heart of town
    close to all major sights and fine dining opportunities
  • Guided sightseeing with local pros (walking tours, included
    tickets to museums and other sights' entrances)
  • Fixed tour start dates and guaranteed departures
  • Transportation in a comfortable mini-bus for tours inside the city or for day trips (NO large buses!)
  • Only high-speed time-saving varied transportation for optimal intercity connections (high-speed trains, planes, ferries, NO coach buses!)
  • Interesting insider activities included (f.e. folk shows, flamenco performances, tastings, classes, etc)
  • Best value for money (less costly than Private tours)
