Tony and Vivian Perng, Bay Area, California

Prague, Budapestlocation

We just got back from our Prague, Bohemia and Vienna trip. It was unforgettably great! We had never useda travel service to plan our trips before, so we cannot help but tell our family and friends (and everyone) about the wonderful experiences we had with Go Real Europe. As a matter of fact, this service enabled us to be stress-free, and to totally enjoy and explore the beauty of Prague, Bohemia and Vienna.

We are so pleased with Go Real Europe. With the comprehensive itinerary, handy maps marked with local hidden gems, local eatery and shop recommendations, and live assistance only a phone-call away, we were able to truly control our own agenda and totally enjoy the trip without extensive self-study and planning. Most importantly, the cost of service is surprisingly reasonable; after the trip, we are further convinced that it was totally worth it. We discovered the web-site as we started our “self-planning” efforts for the trip. We took advantage of the itinerary-creation survey on web, with no expectation of what we would get; surprisingly we got a decent first draft back from David. But the reality is that lots of details and logistics still needed to be sorted and planned out. As both of us acknowledge that planning a trip is a time consuming and energy-drained task, we decided to give Go Real Europe a call to find out exactly what service they could offer. At first, we were certainly somewhat skeptical; however our every conversation and every email exchange with David throughout the process was so productive. We were actually extremely impressed by the quality of service (attention to details and well thought-out plans for travelers like us, “foreigners but wanting to be self-guided in a foreign country”). We have to say that much of the advice, ideas, insights and the itinerary we got from Go Real Europe are something we could hardly achieve/obtain from website self-research. The level of professionalism, quality of information and serviced offered from Go Real Europe was just perfect. With their service, our planning process turned out to be so personal and hassle-free; indeed it was such a pleasant and wonderful experience. During the trip, we totally made the best use of the info and materials we were given by Go Real Europe. We were so well-equipped that we could efficiently explore and experience a lot more in comparison to other tourists. We have quite a few global travel experiences in our past, but this is the first time we truly felt that we were able to see and do more than just being regular tourists. Most importantly we enjoyed this trip so much more and learned so much more about the local cultures besides the richness of the Czech historical backgrounds. Oh, before I forget, the hotel recommendations provided were more than perfect. Each place has its own charm and character, not to mention they were all in perfect locations. In addition, with David’s suggestions and arrangement, we also attended the opera Carmen, in the National Theater. What a grand theater! We also got great seats for a great price! Driving through the beautiful countryside and visiting several local attractions and historical sites along the way to CeskyKrumlov in south Bohemia was such a cool experience. Spending a few nights in South Bohemia was the other highlight of the trip. The personal bike tour we took in the Bohemian countryside was fun. The bike tour guide was more than great. Not just did we enjoy the outdoor beautiful scenery, but we also learned so much of the history and local culture. Again, without Go Real Europe, we would have not been able to do that much. Next, Vienna…what a grand city! We continued the wonderful travel experiences as we proceeded towards the end of our trip in Vienna… We had such a great time during the trip, as well as during the extremely pleasant planning experience before the trip. We have deep appreciation of the service Go Real Europe provides. Go Real Europe truly made this trip a life-time memorable event for us. Actually, we started thinking about our next trip already; and are definitely looking forward to our next trip with Go Real Europe to other cities…… Thank you again, David

We have just returned from a trip to Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest. We used Go Real Europe and everything went perfectly. David is the perfect organiser and we followed his detailed instructions easily. As others have said, he even supplies the public transport tickets! All our hotels were in great locations and had a bit of character. The local guides who gave us orientation tours in each city were terrific-in Budapest, Gabriella even drove us around in her car as it was too hot to walk.We loved being able to do a tour, without being on a bus and having to fit in to a schedule-this is the way to travel!

Hi David, Sorry to have taken so long to do this, I’ve been home nearly 2 weeks now and slowly getting back to normal after some serious jetlag. Thank you so much for organizing my Czech Republic/Austria holiday. It was absolutely perfect. It was so detailed there was never any concern by me as to how to get to where I was going.

Every day was so filled with new adventures that when I finished and went to Italy I actually felt a bit lost for a few days with what to do, where to go and how to get there because I had been so spoiled with what you had organized for me. I absolutely loved Prague and everyone who has asked me what was my highlight has been told “Prague”. The hotel on Kampa Garden Island was in a perfect location and walking across the Charles Bridge most mornings with fog over the river was a beautiful sight. The metro system in Prague was excellent, as was in Vienna. With your directions it was so easy to head for the correct track without looking too much like a target for possible pick pockets. As a solo female traveller, I always felt safe and without any stress about how to get about. The mix of private transfers and bus was just right. The trip to Karlovy Vary, while a bit too long a day, was excellent and Casino Royale was on TV here last week so I had to watch it again just because I had been there. The Student Agency bus trips were excellent, they really are comfortable buses and well managed. Of my 9 weeks in Europe, the two weeks in Czech Republic and Austria was a wonderful experience and extremely great value for money. If I get the opportunity to travel to Europe again, I will definitely come back to Prague and perhaps Budapest and Krakow and of course I’ll be in touch then !! If any of your prospective clients want to contact me, please feel free to give them my email. Cheers and thanks again.

My wife, Stacey and I were excited about traveling to Europe but, frankly, are not one to do it with a bunch of people we don't know, stuck to an itinerary we don't like, and a schedule that is too stringent. Upon some investigation, we came up with a gentleman/company that arranges exclusive, private tour itineraries with a choice of 4-8 different cities, based on your schedule.

It was, without hesitation, the best decision we made and was the best vacation the two of us have ever had. No detail was left out, and yet we had the ability to do what we wanted to, when we wanted to. David's itineraries are incredible and his level of planning was perfect. He had the best hotels, based on our preferences, and made sure we got between destinations seamlessly. We had a private tour in each wife, myself and the tour guide. This was fantastic. I've never had this luxury before. The tour guides in Europe are highly educated and go at your pace. This wasn't only a vacation, it was a detailed examination in the history of each city, it's culture, and it's past. When you purchase the trip, based on a series of questions David asks you, you receive a very detailed, and long, itinerary, spelling each day out. You can stick to it, or modify it, as you please. We did a combination of both. He provides professionally prepared custom maps of each city, that works in concert with your itinerary, to direct you to the best and most interesting of each city. (Make sure you study them before arriving). Restaurant suggestions were also wonderful. I also truly appreciated David being available via telephone during our trips when we had a question. I could go on but, suffice to say, I would recommend David and GoRealEurope without hesitation. I welcome anyone to contact me with questions.
