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.
not fitting our needs. insensitive

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.

Our European trip was wonderful and we did not encounter any serious problems. Our paperwork and connections were good except for a little glitch in Italy which was resolved without much fuss. Overall a great time.

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
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.

Perfect experience....do wish we knew how much guides & drivers were being paid so we would have a better idea about how much to tip. Or give us amount we should tip if we have a positive experience with guide & driver.
