We used EC for our last trip to Paris and Switzerland. Our trip was fantastic and EC put together a very nice itinerary for us and the trip was carried out without a hitch. Our guide was very good - although he was more focused on the adults than the kids. My only feedback is that if there are kids on a guided tour, the guide should have some kid activities planned and make them more included. Other than that, everything was great.

From the first minute in the Nice airport to the last transfer by water taxi in Venice the service personnel and luxury accommodations used you may rely on-excellent. Can't say enough about this company. VERY good. All English speaking , all in suits an ties, the cars and taxis clean and very high end. The hotel in Venice OUTSTANDING ! Room #409 wow.. impressive.

The tour guides for European Connection are very knowledgeable and friendly. They are willing to stop whenever you want pictures and will answer any and all questions. We had tour guides for just the two of us and marveled at their ability to bypass lines and find little niches where we could stop and listen to their expertise without worrying that we were at the back of some line following a stick in the air! Highly recommended.

EC really delievered when it came to the hotels and drivers they booked for our honeymoon. Virtually every hotel provided memorable views from our room, champagne and incredible breakfast. EC certainly has its finger on the pulse of travel in Italy and knows which hotels provide yhe best ecperience for its customers.

Fantastic tour of Aix de Provence and Cassis, with an unplanned stop at a local winery. Cedric was far and away our best guide of the trip, and it was a wonderful day.

From airport pickup to walking tour, boating to the islands and back- wonderful. Reliable first class transportation. Guides were on-time, personable and informative. These services helped us make the most of our time in Venice.

Christmas in Austria

Our family of nine traveled to the Salzkammergut for Christmas. The arrangements were complicated with various parts of the family coming and going at different times. The drivers were prompt and gracious. The guides were knowledgeable, accommodating and good with the children. Using European Connection took all the stress out of planning our vacation. We saw and did much more than we ever could have on our own.

All our private tour guides, transfers and drivers were amazing. We appreciated the ease in touring with them with the flexibility a private tour guide gave us. Their knowledge and safe driving was much appreciated. I think it's the first time I've ever seen my wife fall asleep in a car someone else was driving, seriously! Had an absolutely great time with each tour.

Private Tour of Berlin with Peter

By: Sue

Reviewed on: 31 Jul 2017

Another whirlwind tour - four hours in Berlin with Peter as driver and guide. We saw all the important sights with a nonstop and comprehensive narrative with Peter. He always pulled off the road to give us important in depth information. He was energetic, engaging and gave us the feeling that he enjoyed taking us around. He definitely made us want to return to Berlin and spend more time there especially visiting the museums. We liked the experience of seeing so many different sides of Berlin from the funky to the sophisticated.

Excellent Driver

By: diane

Reviewed on: 25 Sep 2018

We had a wonderful driver, Florian, who drove 6 of us from Monte Carlo to Eze. He arrived early at the port and was waiting for us. Since we had extra time, he suggested a stop and short tour at the Fragonard Factory which we all enjoyed. He then drove us up into Eze as far as he could go and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Chèvre d'Or.

Travel easy in Italy

By: Alakainalu

Reviewed on: 26 Sep 2018

They picked us up at the boat in Livorno. Great van for 6 people to Florence. The tour was not great. The guide was disorganized and was more interested in showing us "local" places, where it was obvious she was in for a cut of the action. We suggested a restaurant, but she wanted to again take us to a "local" place. Not great. I think we just drew a bad card on the guide. Then they picked us up at the port in Rome and took us to the ferry in Naples, made sure we got on the ferry to Capri, met us when we got back, took us to Pompeii, where we had a GREAT guide, who made the experience wonderful. Then drove us to our hotel in Sorrento, next morning, a great driver to the Naples airport (knew the back way, to miss the traffic), help getting to the check in. All very professional and perfectly organized.
