Experience Europe with your local host Audrey on a private tour
A private group tour with a customized itinerary is right for you if:
You do not typically "do tours" but would like a local expert to handle all the details.
You want someone with local knowledge, experience and expertise, to create an exclusive customized itinerary just for you and your group.
You want to see the highlights, but you also want unique experiences that help to immerse you in the local culture.
You just want to book your flight and go, without needing to spend weeks planning.
You don't want the same old trip that everyone else books and you don't like tourist traps.
You are looking for quality and personalized service over a bargain.
