Better than Any Bus Tours
Way Better than Any Bus Tours

Our private and small group tours are way better than any bus tours. With us, you explore places, see the best sights, and don't waste time.

We believe that bus tours are not for you. After flying across the ocean to have a journey of a lifetime, the last thing you want is to spend 40 hours per week on a bus. Or wait for 40 or 60 other people, everywhere you go. Besides, bus tours rush you away from the most interesting places and take you to a number of obscure places in between. This is how they save money, and this is how you miss out on the great destinations.

Finally, they put you in poor quality hotels. We don’t. With us, you stay at the best hotels in the best cities. With our designed programs you will live in the heart of each city. For instance, right next to Colosseum in Rome or just a minute walk from the Eiffel Tower in Paris. This means that you spend your valuable time on exploring a destination instead of wasting it in traffic. Buses are not even allowed to most city centers in Europe! Another significant advantage of staying at a central hotel is the opportunity to enjoy remarkable restaurants, attend fascinating evening performances, and make the most of your evenings.

We arrange the best transportation for you, including private transfers and high-speed trains. With us, you have a choice of traveling on a private basis or with a small group of 14-20 like-minded people.

Outstanding Quality
Half The Price of Luxury Tour

We are a direct tour operator, which means we organize tours ourselves, instead of reselling someone else’s tours. Our tours are half the price of similar tours by other luxury travel companies

By organizing tours ourselves, we ensure outstanding quality and great rates for our customers, and instant in-trip support. By being a real tour operator, not only can we control the quality of service and coherence of our programs, but we can also deliver a remarkable price as there are no excess links in the supply chain. To put it simply, our clients go on unforgettable journeys, enjoying unmatched value.

Luxury tours are very expensive because luxury travel companies buy tours from the actual tour operators. In essence, you overpay for the brand names. Unlike them, we organize our tours ourselves working with local suppliers, guides, drivers, rail companies, and hotels. This is how we can control the quality of our tours without asking you to pay more for it.

Our tours cost from $200 per day for a small group and $300 per day for private, and this is the best value when it comes to upscale quality travel in Europe or Russia. We improve our tours every year based on our clients' feedback. This is exactly why we offer the best tours at the best rates.

Full Itinerary Customization
Customization Like it Should Be

We are a tour operator for entire Europe. This means that you can travel to any destinations on the continent. Let it be a one week trip to Italy or a half year exploration of Europe.

We make customization not only possible but exceptionally convenient. Each customer is assigned a dedicated destination specialist with a deep knowledge of the target destination. They help our customers to devise a perfect program that reflects their interests.

While most other companies just resell one-size-fits-all packages with very little to none customization options - we help our travelers build their dream journeys. Without any limitations or constraints.

Our team is trained to be our customer’s best advisor. We are sure that you will love the experience of working with our specialists just like many other travelers did. See customer reviews section for reference.

Top Service and Attention
We Care About Your Journey

Your trip is very important to us. We meticulously organize every detail so you can have a journey of a lifetime.

We are not the only company that organizes tours to Europe. But we are one of the most trusted ones. Hence, every year, more than 30,000 travelers join our small group tours or create customized itineraries together with their destination specialists.

We have made sure to craft out fantastic travel packages that are well worth your time, and can be fully customized. And we assembled a skillful team of travel planners and designed our processes in such a way that everything about your journey is double and triple checked.

Finally, when you book your trip with us, you book it from US and Swiss companies that work hand-in-hand to build and organize your program. For you, this means a high level of confidence and trust that your trip is in good hands and that you are dealing with a reputable and accountable company with rock-solid financials and western management.

Founder's Story

Founder's story

I grew up in a remote town of the Russian Far East (Magdagachi, map). My parents owned a small hotel in the middle of nowhere - there was nothing else 500 km either way. So everyone who wanted to travel around the world had to stop at my parents' hotel for the night. I was the only person in the town who spoke some English, so I met each traveler, helped them to check in, to make arrangements for next day and I translated while they enjoyed a home dinner at my parents house. I met many wonderful people from US, Canada, Australia and UK and this is when my career in travel really started...continue reading.
