Highly Recommended
12 day European Experience.

For a glimpse of an array of countries and the best bits they have to offer, this is a tour to savour. From the Swiss Alps to Colosseum to the Vatican City, there is something unique in each new destination.

The tour was well organised, with hotels slightly out of the city centre, making the trip far more affordable. Plenty of optional extras meant you could go places with a group or explore each city on your own.

Our tour director Carly was very knowledgable and treated 46 different travellers with exceptional service. Having toured with other companies before the professionalism shown by Carly was beyond expectations. Her ability to make arrangements around the weather for travellers to be able to experience each event when the weather was best showed a great deal of foresight and was greatly appreciated.

The group of travellers ranged in age from primary school to retirees, but were all very respectful of one another and were all treated well by the tour director and coach driver Ludwig, whose patience was commendable. The respect each member of the tour showed one another in a very diverse group of people was incredible.

Each of the specialist tour guides we came across were also excellent and it was clear they also had a great deal of respect for Carly. I've found the tour director sets the tone for a tour and Costsaver have invested well in this area.

Having experienced some very poor customer service with other providers I couldn't recommend Costsaver more highly.
