Dear C the World, Thank you for a fabulous tour which certainly exceeded our expectations. We cannot stop singing your praises to all and sundry. I am always on the lookout for a bargain and my Budget European Tour certainly was value for money. So many mind blowing attractions, still cannot decide which were our favourites. We were so impressed in the professional manner in which the tour was conducted. Jacqueline was absolutely efficient and handled the guests with patience explaining the workings of the railways a million times to everybody. Want to commend Jacqueline not only for her expertise during the tour but for her assistance prior to departure with visas and key notes. We definitely will recommend your company to our friends and family. I am looking forward to my next tour with C the World, which I hope will be soon. Kind Regards and Best Wishes!
