Great tour, well planned, very affordable. Long trips made shorter by Bingo and Quizzes. One would not be able to see and visit these places any cheaper, anywhere. Great initiative Benno!

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
