This tour has filled in the gaps between everything I heard and learned about the history of eastern Europe countries since end of world war II. I am very impressed with the old buildings, churches, castles as well as cultures and food of each country.

Barb was excellent. Answered all our questions and followed through with advice.

Itinerary was fine; driver and guide were not. I have already given detailed info to GET. We had a good itinerary and we made our vacation count in each city on our own. If the driver and guide are not super good, then that is what the customer remembers the most, it is what affects each day of the trip and sours the customer.

The cities visited were wonderful, but the hotels were too far away from them (Cost-Saver). My friend couldn't spend any more for a trip, so we were limited to what was available at that price.
