Although, on some day tours the walking portion was a bit excessive, but overall spirit of the group
was remained very positive only!
It should be specifically highlighted the work of our Tour Director Renata Mikulowska, whose every day energy and very high professional knowledge made this trip even more enjoyable.
Renata Mikulowska were able to manage all timing issues, including transportation and overall schedule challenges.
Thanks to SmartTours with Very Good overall rating!
There was a good balance between guided touring and free time to explore on my own. I highly recommend SmarTours for an exceptional travel experience and would definitely book future trips with them.
Our Tour Manager was Renata Mikulovska. She was sublime. Professional, patient, organized, funny, compassionate. And most important, she shared her knowledge as if it was her first tour… she imparted information to a group of adults who were seeing the treasures of each city as novices. I am sure that she’s done this trip tens of times; yet her delivery was never stale. A true talent.
For the actual tour itself: hotels good, food good. For me, I was unhappy that we spent a day each to travel from one capital to the other. It meant that we had less time in each city. This was particularly evident in Vienna, where were really had only one full day, so I had little time to see the museums. [I would suggest travelling at night and arriving in each city in the morning].
