Great tour.
Very full on tour with free time to explore. Enjoyed seeing a little of eastern Europe but a little extra time in Prague and Budapest would have been great. Great value and great traveling companions. Will and James kept the tour running smoothly.

Fantastic Guide to The Great Priamids of Egypt!
Here is a brief review of my experience. This travel destination has been on my Bucket List since I was a young man. I had wanted to see the American Tour of King Tutankhamun many years ago when I was a young man. I am now in my 60's and had the opportunity to travel with my son in his 30's. <br /> The headline of any tour is several aspects. The important aspe...Read More

ct is the tour guide. Our trip was lead by an expert on Egyptian History. He could easily teach at a University Level anywhere in the world. His attention to teaching and exploring the many ancient sights we visited brought alive the lift of ancient Egyptian World. This was worth the trip in itself. <br /> The accommodation's at the Oasis was good for the rating. The food was good and tasty. As in many areas the internet was extra. The security was tight all throughout our trip. If you are not used to seeing a high level of National security this will cause you to take notice.<br /> The Nile Cruise Quest was good for the level. The food was average. As in all areas, be aware of uncooked food buffets. <br /> The Grand Seas Resort in Hurghada, Red Sea was a great surprise. We took the Optional Sahara Excursion and had a great day out. The Camel Ride was a little short, but the view, atmosphere, and experience way out in the Sahara Desert was awesome.<br /> Overall, my son and I had a great experience with the others on the adventure and with our amazing tour guide.<br /> I'm looking forward to my next trip with ExPat in June!Read Less

Fabulous Christmas tour
Would give Gabie and Mark from Expat five stars. The real downside to the tour was the hotel in Switzerland that was a former hostel that is run by the owner like a hostel. Rooms have slanted floors, low ceilings that hit the heads, and most of all no amenities like a soda machine or bar to get soda. This became an issue with 2 tour members that became ill at this hotel. Th...Read More

ere was no ice, soda, lunch etc. for the sick travelers. They were completely dependent on other travelers for water, soda, crackers, soup etc carried up the hill from town. Thank goodness There was folks who offered to help but this was a very real concern! Finally, one traveler walked with a cane and climbing was non-existent up that hill. His family was appalled at this accommodation limiting his access. There has to be another accommodation.Read Less

Highlighted some of the Best of the United Kingdom
The only way Expat Explore could fulfill the itinerary was by long days and good timekeeping. It wasn't a problem for us but at this time of the year (New Year period) the mornings are dark and so are the early evenings so some of the tours of the cities had to be shown in the dark, which was better than not doing them at all. In general, the food was very good although ...Read More

on buffet style meals you had to be quick or miss out on say desserts. The tour itself was very well organised and Mike, our tour leader, was full of interesting facts and figures and really kept the whole thing moving in a relaxed manner, although looking back, it must have been rushed but we never felt it. Everybody on board the full complement of 51 people seemed to get on pretty well with South Americans, Asians and Europeans - oh yes and Australians - so a mixed bag of fellow travellers. The walking tours, as we said were really well organised and educational and just about the right length. The extra extras were all well worth doing and the cost of these Expat Explore has no control over - you either want to do them or you don't. A special mention about Edinburgh Hogmanay - this truly was an amazing event and one we had been looking forward to for 69 years! We also especially enjoyed Liverpool and the Cavern Club which took us right back to our youth when we used to visit there as teenagers. The accommodation on the tour was varied but with the price of the tour any minor glitches with room size, etc. had to be expected. Well, that's about it, next time we are planning a coach tour of anywhere we will definitely be using Expat Explore, they did exactly what they said on the can. Thank you for a wonderful Great Britain tour.Read Less

I am booking my next holiday with Expat
I want to express my gratitude to Gustavo and Wayne for looking after our group so well and really caring that everyone go the best out of their holiday. The special moments that Gustavo created with the music, the anthems, the games, the guidance and the extensive commentary that kept us all well informed. I am astounded that we had a group who all got on so well and seemed to...Read More

flow with everyone around them. This is a credit to them of course but I doubt that could have happened without good organization and attention to detail so things went smoothly. And to Wayne who repeatedly went out of his way to ensure our safety and going above the call of duty on many occasions. This includes sitting in the freezing cold so we could enjoy more time in the beer hall, just to mention one example. I am a true "tour" convert now and would recommend Expat wholeheartedly. Thankyou. "We are family!"Read Less

Sensational Italian tour of a lifetime
This tour strikes the right balance between breadth and depth of coverage. You get to check off so many items on your own "to see" list, and even get some magnificent surprises, like driving above the clouds up to Monte Cassino - sublime! The pace is just right, except there isn't nearly enough time in Florence. While one can spend days there before getting "...Read More

Okay Experience
I had a great time exploring different cities/countries with Grace and James. The experiences were amazing. We saw so many different historic sites in such a small time frame. There were a lot of things that occurred that had made me provide a rating of only 3 out of 5 (which I think is generous). There were several incidents where I had no heat or hot water in my hotel. I unde...Read More

rstand this may not be a major issue to some, but for me this was a deal breaker. We spent most of our time either on the bus, or outside exploring, so a hot shower is definitely needed before being out in the cold all day. I honestly did not expect that from a company that had really good ratings. The hotel accommodations were decent. Some hotels were great, and some felt like we were staying in the slums. I had a fold up bed in my hotel in Venice. It rolled when I sat on it. The last thing I wanted to experience after an exhausting day was that. Our last night on the tour, we didn't check in until midnight. They didn't have enough staff to clean the rooms, so I missed out on a couple of extra hours of sleep because of poor management. I understand there was nothing the tour leader can do about this, but as a company, you should consider who you do business with because it is a reflection on your company. I felt like the tour was rushed. We didn't get a chance to rest and by the time we got to most countries, it was night time so we really couldn't see much of it. Perhaps maybe consider longer stays in certain locations or consider traveling at night so we can see the cities during the day.Read Less
