Experts in Upscale Travel
We organize awesome private and small group tours. They are way better than any bus tours and half the price of similar tours by other luxury travel companies.
Way better than any bus tours.
We believe that buses are not for you. When you fly across the ocean to have a journey of a lifetime, you don't want to spend 40 hours per week on the bus. Besides, bus tours rush you away from most interesting capitals and put you to poor hotels. We don't. With us you live at best hotels at the best cities. You travel with best transportation, including private transfers and high-speed trains. With us, you have a choice to travel private or with a small group of 16 travelers.
Half the price of tours by other luxury travel companies.
We organize our tours ourselves and work with end suppliers on the ground. This is how we ensure quality. This is how we get great rates. We pass many of the savings to our customers by offering unmatched value for their money. Our tours cost from $200 per day for small group and $300 per day for private and this is the best value when it comes to quality and upscale travel to Europe and Russia. We improve our tours every year based on our clients opinions and feedback. And this is how we have the best price for best tours.

We and they
How we compare: bus tours are one of the worst ways to travel in Europe for three simple reasons. First, you spend 40 hours per week on the bus. Second, you are waiting for 40 or 60 other people, everywhere you go. Unless you really like traveling by bus with large groups, you are not going to enjoy this kind of travel experience. Finally, bus tours rush you out from greatest destinations and take you to many obscure places in between. This is how they save money. And this is how you miss great destinations.
We are different. We book the best hotels at the heart of each city and we arrange logistics of your trip so you travel on the most comfortable mode of transport between cities - in Europe this is usually trains or private drivers. With us, you have a choice to travel private or with a small group. Our small group tour is not a bus tour. It is like a private tour where few couples share a guide during the day program. And our private tours are just as good as the most expensive luxury tours, but better - they cost 2 times less.
How we compare: Luxury tours are very expensive because luxury travel companies buy tours from actual operators. In essence, you overpay for the brand names. Unlike them, we organize our tours ourselves. We with actual local suppliers, guides, drivers, rail companies, hotels. This is how we are able to bring you great rates and this is how we are able to control quality without asking you to pay for more it. Our typical tour costs $200 per day for small group and $300 per day for private.
