Welcome to Europe's leading value coach tour operator

As one of the founders of Expat Explore Travel 12 years ago, I can assure you that you are about to go on an amazing journey!

On our website you can find your next tour experience, both for first-time and seasoned travelers to Europe. We have a choice of over 50 tour programs, ranging from introductory multi-country itineraries to more regional in depth options.

Guaranteed departures mean that once your holiday is booked you can enjoy the peace of mind that your tour will proceed with no minimum numbers needed.

You also don't need to pay in full when you book - a 10% deposit secures your tour and surprisingly low early-bird booking rates!

2016 is a great time to travel in Europe! Not only is it still one of the safest places in the world, but it also offers excellent public transport, cultural diversity, and, of course, famous food! The Euro currency is weaker against most other world currencies compared to recent years, and this means that you will get a lot more for your money in 2016.

Please browse our tours and don’t hesitate to call us or chat with us if you have any questions!
