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.

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.

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

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.

kind of disappointed

By: Anna Louise

Reviewed on: 14 May 2019

Although our guide was extremely nice, charismatic, and tried to help us- we were expected a private car ride from our cruise ship to Florence, and then the guide would walk us around the city and help us get into places (since we only had one day and limited time). However, once we got to Florence, he informed us that he could not ever leave his car for more than a couple of minutes! So basically we had to explore on our own, and missed some highlights because we had not booked in advance. He offered several times to drive us around to highlights of the city, but we wanted to walk around and enjoy our limited time in the city and not be stuck in a car. (so it is not his fault, but more the company's fault for being misleading about the description of the day tour). Let me repeat: the driver/guide was delightful and we had lots of fun with him; however, we basically paid a fortune for an expensive cab ride to and from our cruise ship. We got a partial refund, which was very nice.

We loved our driver Jonathan. We thought we were getting a guided tour around Florence which was definitely necessary. Jonathan was unable to leave his car, therefore we did not get a tour around. We are appreciative that EC worked with us to come to a financial agreement. I think there was miscommunication on the services offered.
