100% worth it!
Gustavo, our tour leader made our experience so enjoyable, relaxed and easy. He was very caring and did his best to assist us in any way he could. Even when some things didn't go according to plan, he still remained positive. Having Gustavo as our tour leader made all the difference to our time in Europe. Gustavo is a GEM in Expat Explore. 5 star driving from Coen. He was very safe and careful and we felt very comfortable riding in the bus with him as our driver.

Memorable experience
I commend the entire team of this travel company for their remarkable efforts. They have made travel accessible to all, providing an unforgettable experience at an affordable price. Our interactions with them have always been smooth and prompt. Our tour guide Kriszti and driver Coen went above and beyond to ensure our Europe Jewel Tour was exceptional. They dedicated time to acquaint themselves with us and ensured our safe transport to exquisite locations. The accommodations were generally comfortable and satisfactory. The inclusion of local favorites in the food offerings was a delightful touch. We will undoubtedly choose Expat Explore for our future travels. The only suggestion for improvement would be to extend the duration in each country, even if it entails additional costs. This would allow travelers to explore the destinations more thoroughly while still having adequate rest. Hats off to the entire Expat Explore Team.

Amazing tour!
My partner & I have previously each done a Europe tour with other companies & they didn't even come close to being as good as this one!! Everything about this tour was amazing. We absolutely loved the itinerary & the whole thing was very organised & planned to perfection. Shae was our tour leader & was knowledgeable & organised. We had absolutely no issues on the tour, apart from someone forgetting a bag, but Shae was a super star & got it back quickly. We loved that the tour went to a lot of beautiful, quaint towns. All of the hotels were great, apart from our hotel in Tuscany (no aircon, dusty rooms) & Paris (room wasn't cleaned properly). The Alpenrose gardens hotel in Switzerland was amazing & we didn't want to leave! We had Hans as our bus driver & we are convinced that he is the best driver in Europe! We have even started looking at our next expat tour!

Why this tour?

This 14 day European tour is an excellent option for travellers who wish to explore incredible destinations in both Western and Eastern Europe. You’ll spend 2 weeks in Europe starting in Amsterdam and visit 11 countries.

This tour is great for first time travellers to Europe who want to experience the travel highlights as well as travellers who want to discover more about this vast and varied continent with the help of an experienced guide and expertly designed itinerary. 

The best itinerary for Europe is one that introduces you to major cities, visits quaint towns, takes in amazing natural scenery and provides you with fun inclusions and optional activities. Plus, you should have some free time to explore as you wish. The Europe Jewel tour does all of this! Enjoy locally guided walking tours in Prague, Vienna, Ljubljana and Florence. See the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa and cruise around Amsterdam and the Rhine Valley. Enjoy delicious traditional food and authentic culture. You also get to enjoy free days in Prague, the Swiss Alps and Paris during your 2 week Europe tour which will give you time to explore these destinations at your leisure. Optional activity highlights include some of the best things to do on a Europe vacation. You can enjoy a Swiss mountain adventure, enjoy a Venetian gondola ride, watch Parisian cabaret shows and more. It’s the ultimate 2 week Europe trip!

Some people may wonder if it is worth going to Europe for 2 weeks? The answer is yes! This continent is bursting with things to see and do; you won’t get to see it all in a short trip. With regards to how many days you should spend in Europe, it depends on where you are going and what you are seeing. This 14 day europe itinerary lets travellers see many bucket-list sites while still enjoying ample free time. 

The best time to go to Europe depends on what kind of holiday you are after. You can visit in summer for warm weather and sunshine filled days. Travel in autumn and spring when it is milder and less busy. Or visit in Winter for a chilly festive holiday. When packing for your 2 week tour of Europe be mindful of the season - and don’t forget to pack good walking shoes!

Joining a guided group tour is the best way to plan a two week trip to Europe because it ensures you see major travel highlights, hidden gems you might not have known about on your own and it limits time wasted organizing your own transport. Simply hop aboard the coach, enjoy the views as well as insight from your Tour Leader, and soon you’ll arrive at your next destination! It is also a cost effective way to travel as planning a trip to Europe for 2 weeks can become expensive. Our tours include accommodation, transport on an air conditioned coach, many meals plus activities. Set some spending money aside for each day and you’re all set!
