From start to finish the tour was amazing!!! Well organized and very well managed. George went above and beyond for each and every person that I travelled with, making sure he accommodated everyone. The long hours on the bus was never boring filled with entertainment, many laughs, a couple of surprises and an amazing bus driver, Karel , who is definitely a keeper! I will most definitely be coming on another tour and spreading the word!!! THANK YOU for an adventure ill never forget. -April Europe 2015

We want to thank you and C the World for a once in a lifetime experience you and your company helped make happen for our family. Our two week trip through Europe was awesome and we are so thankful and glad that we chose to do it with you. The trip was well organised, fun-filled, yet fast paced and busy but probably the best way to see as much as possible. Thank you for being such an awesome tour leader and staying with us every step of the way as we travelled from country to country. -European tour 2014
