We can not say highly enough how well our trip was organised and would like to thank Michaela for her professionalism and friendly, most helpful manner.
We had the trip of a lifetime and although we traveled on our own we always felt we were supported the whole trip.
The accommodation was excellent, the train trips ran like clockwork and were easy to manage with all of Michaela’s instructions , Can’t thank to to-Europe.com enough and we can only offering the highest praise for Michaela and her organisational skills.
We have done Christmas markets in the past and have planned them ourselves.This trip we adjusted the itinerary to go to cities we haven't been, Innsbruck, Stuttgart, and Garmisch. It was nice this time that all the research and leg work was already done for us. All we had to do was follow the the instructions that was sent to us. We took every piece of information sent to us and placed it in a notebook by each day. We referred to it constantly. We also put the DB train app on our phone so we could double check out train times for any changes. Which came in handy when the German trains went on strike one morning. We were quickly notified by Team to- Europe of the strike and were able to change our plans for the day. We were thankful that it wasn't a traveling day. The only problem we had on our trip was trying to get our sense of direction once we left the train station . Using the maps in our packet plus the GPS on our phones we got it figured out.. We were very pleased with the hotels that were selected for us. They were close to the rail stations and easy to walk to. The rooms were nice and we were glad that breakfast was included. We enjoyed the extras that were included in the tour. From the Sound of Music tour, to a day trip to the Royal Castles. We took a day trip to Insbruck. We visited Swarovsk. Fantastic what they can create with crystals. Took a cable car up to Nordkettenbahnen. It was a clear day and we could see the olympic ski jump. Took in the sights of old town, and visited the Christmas market. We were glad that we added Stuggart on our trip. The Market was very festive and decorated to the hilt and it was located in the shopping district. In Garmisch we took the cog train to the top of the Zugspitz. Its the tallest peak in Germany. This quaint town is also a shopping mecca and Christmas market was fun. It was a great trip. Would love to do another one. Will definitely use To-Europe again.
We recently did the 8 day Christmas Markets by
Trains tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. All hotels were
Perfectly situated, very comfortable and well staffed. Their proposed itineraries
Are well thought out, practcle and aimed at enhancing the visitors
Stay. This company has very responsive and has shown genuine support and
Concern for all of needs. We would enthusiastically
recommend them based upon our experience. Thank you all.
Just returned from customized rail tour from Berlin to Munich, for a Christmas Markets and sightseeing. Loved it! All the hotel arrangments were awesome and very close to the rail stations per our request. Everything was arranged for us and we had a great time!
We have just returned from a week long trip to 5 cities to visit their Christmas Markets and take in some history at the same time. I worked with Petra to design this rail trip as the pre-arranged Tripps didn't; go where I wanted. We asked for hotels near train stations, and the ones we had were perfect and not too far for dragging luggage. The markets were hard to miss and we had a great time eating and shopping. The attention to detail was amazing. Our rail tickets were neatly labeled and all the vouchers for hotels etc assured us easy check-in experiences. We would definitely use this company again.
We truly appreciate the work that you did for us.
Five countries, 11 cities, in 30-days
The hotels (with the exception of Florence) were terrific — better than we would have booked for ourselves. The breakfasts were better than expected too. All offered hot options (eggs and meats), even though they were listed as “continental.” The locations were convenient to the trains and local transport. Although some locations were in less than prime neighborhoods.
The trains and busses were comfortable and on-time. Once we learned how to navigate the stations and platforms, it was a breeze. The only glitch was the detour between Salzburg and Venice. We did miss the connecting train to Venice, and had to scramble. A young woman at the ticket office in Villach was quite helpful. The agent in Salzburg was not.
We got lucky leaving Florence early to get to LaSpezia and Cinque Terre. We left early to beat the change in weather, which we did! We accidentally avoided a train strike which would have voided our day-trip to Cinque Terre.
The excursions that you added in Munich and Florence were a nice touch. We may, or may not have thought of those trips on our own.
This was a beautiful train tour through amazing country. We went in late October/November. It was very nice to not have to worry about booking train tickets etc and have everything set up for you and your arrival. Would recommend for anyone looking to explore multiple countries and make it easy.
To-Europe did an excellent job setting up our tour. Their standard tour included visits to places we had already seen. We asked to have changes made to the itinerary to allow us to visit family friends as well as sites we had not visited. They were very accommodating. The arrangements that were made and the hotels they selected were perfect. This trip was our third using their services. If you feel comfortable driving in Europe and have a cell phone for navigating, you can't go wrong. Outstanding!
We could not have been happier with our arrangements. Everything was so organized. Normally, we do our own arrangements, but never again! The hotels were very nice, especially where we upgraded in Vienna and Budapest. Train tickets were perfectly arranged. We also upgraded to First Class which was well worth it, especially when on a strict time schedule.
I will definitely use To-Europe again and will highly recommend to all of my friends.
First let me say THANK YOU the hotels for a first class stay. Each hotel helped with anything and everything. Each hotel was located near transportation needs, and was easy to locate. We used a custom tour with car and train mix. We have never done any of this before. NOT TO MENTION OUT OF THE COUNTRY. Thomas and Michaela had it set right. All information was mailed in timely manner and the rest waiting at first hotel stay. We did have a glitch with the trains only because of our knowledge and mistake. Autobahn was not an issue. If you do get lost in your car. Don’t worry enjoy the scenery. GPS had us lost due to construction Ruette, Austria. Turned to our phones. Followed Lake Plansee to Linderhoff Castle and had to round due to forestry work. Then detoured through Lermoos, Austria to Garmisch. Beautiful scenery. Happened to be in Munich for its 850 birthday. In all I WOULD DEFINITELY use To-Europe.com again.
We always ask ourselves after a trip "Would we use this company again and would we recommend this company to our friends"? The answer to both questions is a resounding yes! To-Europe did a first class job in every aspect of the trip. It is a great alternative to 'group' travel. They provide a basic structure but help you plan for the amount of flexibility and independence you desire. Their communication and attention to detail was excellent. The only glitch we had related to our inexperience traveling by train. You must pair your train reservation with a train ticket. A train reservation alone is not sufficient documentation to board. Other than that we had a wonderful experience and felt Thomas and his team provided a great value.
We had a wonderful trip. Although we are seasoned travellers, it was so nice to have trans and hotels all arranged for us. The service from toEurope.com was incredible. We had answers to our questions in no time and it was greatly appreciated. Choices of hotels was great and their locations to all markets were awesome. We would recommend to europe.com to anyone.
Last week (December 20) we returned home from Germany. We worked with Michaela to customize the German Christmas Market Rail tour. My husband and I are experienced travelers and usually make our own reservations for transportation and accommodations. What a treat to have this portion of our trip arranged for us and so expertly. We were so impressed with the way in which Michaela arranged these details. Our rail tickets and travel information were clearly explained and the checklist helped to ensure we met our obligations as well. Each rail ticket was accompanied by time table so we could select our departure times. We used open ended rail tickets for most of our journey and found second class tickets for the shorter journeys very suitable. We did reserve a first class ticket for one of our longer trips. I would recommend that folks traveling by rail to familiarize themselves with the system ahead of your holiday. There are numerous internet sites and YouTube videos that are helpful, Because we had our tickets ahead we did not have to purchase them from the ticket machines. Detailed instructions and I mean detailed accompanied the trip material that was emailed to us. The tickets for our first day in Frankfurt were posted by mail to us. The remaining tickets were waiting for us at our first hotel . We also had vouchers for local transportation which saves the feet!
Our hotels were wonderful. Directions from the rail station to the hotel were provided and it was an easy walk to reach our accommodations. We only needed to use a cab for the Bamberg hotel. I was a bit concerned that a hotel near a train station might be a bit “sketchy” but you can be assured that you will have fine accommodations. The breakfasts served at each hotel were excellent and offered a wide variety. The staff at each hotel were helpful.
Furthermore as part of the package we received the local tourist card which included transportation and discounts at museums. Definitely a bonus. We took advantage of the opportunity to see many points of interest. Also we could join local free city tours which was recommended in our information packet.
We would definitely recommend To Europe tours. It’s a treat to have some of the details arranged for you so expertly and efficiently. . We had a fabulous holiday visiting Frankfurt, Berlin, Dresden, Bamberg and Wurzburg. We liked the flexibility of having the opportunity to create a customized trip and were very impressed with the customer service.
THANKS so much for everything.

We had a customized German Highlights tour package and it was perfect. We picked the tour and it was customized to accommodate the dates, cities and time frame we needed. Such an easy way to travel without booking a tour that takes you where THEY want to go and stay as long as THEY want to stay. With To-Europe, YOU pick where you want to go, you stay as long (or short) as you want and To-Europe takes care of the rest. Going on vacation is great, but all the planning is not - reading reviews and picking hotels, buying train tickets, etc. This wonderful company booked all the hotels (first rate and close to stations and action), booked train tickets (1st class) and provided entrance fees to most of the activities that we wanted to see. A "Mehrtagesticket" was provided and you can use this to get into a lot of museums, palaces and castles free of charge. It is good for 14 days and there is no limit on how many times you can use it. (make sure that you carry an ID with you as they will check it) It is, however, not useful for privately owned museums. We also received a "day travel pass" for use in Munich which allowed us to use the trains, trams and buses freely for one day. The hotels were all very convenient to the rails and city centers and all first rate. Breakfast was included each day and most hotels had an onsite restaurant or were close to a lot of eating establishments. I love that we booked the tour and then just had to get ourselves to the airport. We will definitely use them for future travel.
We would like to thank you for providing a great itinerary, rail reservations and lovely central hotels. We had a great trip, but some of the unexpected highlights were Nuremberg & hotel as well as Berlin & Wall.
It was an excellent trip, well organized and great value. We will be sure to recommend your services.
This was the third time we had engaged the services of To Europe and yet again we were very happy with our holiday.
Diana, Michaela and Thomas are a pleasure to deal with and always prompt with their responses and assistance.
My wife, 11 year old daughter and I completed our tour last week and we could have not been more delighted. In the midst of autumn, the countryside was stunning as were the historic towns and sites we visited. We highly recommend a tour from this service, especially for anyone travelling for the first time to a continental European destination.
We chose the castle-hotel tour and, except for Schloss Blumenthal, thoroughly enjoyed the charm of these ancient buildings. We encountered rude and unfriendly staff there and Micheala efficiently arranged for us to leave there one night early and check into our final hotel, The King's Hotel in Munich for a two-night stay at no additional cost. Both of the other castles, Schloss Zeilitzhiem and Berg Abengerg had wonderful staff and charming accommodations, as did the King's Hotel.
I had a fantastic time on this holiday. I just want to thank Thomas, Michaela and Diana for organising this trip. To - Europe is the best company I have ever dealt with , from there effiency to the smallest of details they take care of is amazing. As a solo traveller I was a bit nervous about a few things but they very patiently answered all my questions and there response time is excellent.
Now that I have experienced there services first hand and seen for myself how easy and convienent everything is I will definately be using this company again for any future travels. The fact that I could just enjoy my holiday without stressing that every thing was booked and confirmed was a real bonus.
All the hotels I stayed in were brilliant. Location was spot on and rail travel was definetly the way to go. To all future travellers who are looking to travel independently I really recommend this company for
"To - Europe" is the only way to go!!!!!
This is our 3rd time booking our travel accommodations with ToEurope. We find them to be very well organized and professional. Thomas took the time with us to plan our custom tour; which included the exact arrangements we requested. We have had the most amazing vacations all three times. The accommodations are excellent. We choose to travel by train and find the schedules easy to follow. The tickets and seat reservations were all in order. It is wonderful for us have these details prepared in advance of our trips. We commend Thomas, Micheala and Diana on the work they do to prepare our awesome trips and plan to arrange a 4th trip with ToEurope. We highly recommend ToEurope to anyone planning to travel in Europe.
Sincerely, Joan and Brian Frei
Thank you Michaela and Thomas for organizing our 2 week trip. We asked for train transport, 3 star hotels including breakfast and some city or local tours. We explained we are an older couple with more limited walking capabilities. After many email exchanges and excellent suggestions we settled on a program and payment. At one point Thomas even phoned us in Canada to make sure everything was clear and acceptable and to help me muddle through the electronic payment process. At one place we left some travel information in the hotel; we contacted Michaela and she arranged within minutes for the hotel to send it on to another one of our stops. The hotels were excellent, better than we expected. The train travel organization was very very good. The tours we had were very good. As far as value for money, to Europe is our new standard of measurement.
Loved this vacation. Everything was set up beautifully for us - very professional / personable and accommodating to work with.
We definitely recommend this tour company to help you with your perfect vacation. Highly recommended.....we will definitely will be setting up another tour vacation in the future with this company.
It was perfect!
Thomas, Michaela & Diana customised one of their tours to suit us. From the first contact, they were prompt in replying and answering or suggesting options. This saved me considerable time should I have worked my way through the itinerary myself. All of the hotels were within easy walking distance from the Hbfs, and all were good quality. Train travel though Germany was excellent. The people we met were very friendly and helpful. To-europe has been an excellent company to deal with and I would recommend them to any travellers wishing to travel un-escorted. We will have no hesitation in dealing with them again in the future. The itinerary was excellent and we visited places rich in history, and absolutely beautiful. To-europe is a credit to the German tourist industry, you can't go wrong in choosing them to put together a trip for you.
This is the second time that we are using to-Europe, having used them last year and experienced their excellent service. It saved me a lot of time and headache as I can leave the booking of the rail pass and hotels to them, if you want a free and easy trip. Thomas, Michaela and Diana have been very prompt and efficient in planning the itinerary and replying to our emails. All arrangement were done through emails, including payment, without the need to speak to them, unless you meet up with problems while travelling around Europe. Last year, we do encountered some problems on the trains but these were quickly resolved by a phone call to Thomas. Overall, we are able to enjoy our trip as the hotels that they booked for us are always near main train stations, which make it easy for us to find and travel around the city area.
We arrived at home and I just wanted to share my thoughts to the trip. We had a fantastic time and we could have stayed another three weeks. Michaela, Diana, and Thomas were amazing and very helpful, The trip was better than we could have hoped for and that is only due to their expertise and knowledge of travel. We are already planning to use them again next year for a custom trip to Baden Baden, Switzerland, and Italy. All of the places were very quaint, conveniently located, and the morning breakfasts were AMAZING! Select premium meats, cheese, and beverages were laid out (and consumed) on a daily basis... Favorite hotel experiences in Germany were Bruer’s Rüdesheim Schloss in Rüdesheim and Hotel Spitzweg in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.We made it a point NOT to get onto a big tour company so that we could explore with freedom. It just so happens that on our third and fourth days we came across a Seattle based tour group and after hearing their experiences, we were glad we had chosen the to-Europe team. Highlights include: attending mass at Cologne Cathedral in Cologne and Franzikannes Kirche (Franciscan Church) Salzburg; amazing beer gardens of Augustiner Keller in Munich; watching Germany play in the Euro Cup at restaurants, sidewalk street tents, and beer gardens; Rhine cruise from Rüdesheim with stops in beautiful Bacharach and St. Goar; leisurely walk around Rothenburg on der Tauber to an old working mill, complete with beer gardens; leisurely walk around Heidelberg to an outdoor park (again, stopping at a beer garden); and exploring the surroundings and engaging with people within the culture. We also enjoyed the planned tours including, the Linderhoff Palace and Neuschwanstein Castle in Hohenschwangau; Eagle’s Nest and Obersalzberg tour; Dachau Memorial Site; Nuremberg Trial tour; and the all of the museums, fortressed and castles we saw using the Bavaria pass (Bayern card). Thank you and talk with you soon for our next trip! Joe, Mary, Zach, Josh, and Nathan Hight
This tour was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a tour where we could do things at our own pace, but with the expertise of a professionally organised tour.
ToEurope were very responsive and did an excellent job of customising a tour to fit our needs. The hotels were great and within easy distance of the rail stations. The German trains were of course excellent.
Everything worked perfectly (even the weather cooperated!) and we were delighted with the tour.
We would definitely recommend ToEurope.

Wir danken Thomas und Michaela für die fantastische Planung unseres herrlichen Urlaubs. Es war einmalig schön und alles Bestens von Paris nach München, mit dem Zug nach Mainz und dann mit dem Rheinschiff nach Koblenz und Köln, weiter nach Essen und Berlin. Die Hotels mit Frühstück waren Klasse und immer in Bahnhofnähe was es einfach gemacht hat. Die Tickets haben 100% gestimmt und wir haben soviel gesehen und erlebt. In jeder Weise war unser Urlaub, dank Euch, PERFEKT. Nochmals vielen Dank und liebe Grüsse von Jutta und André, Jost und Belinda aus Kapstadt und Johannesburg, Süd-Afrika
Thank you to Thomas, Michaela and Diana for making our Christmas Markets tour through Germany, Austria and Czech Republic a most memorable experience. We flew into Frankfurt and from then on everything ran like clockwork. We told Thomas where we wanted to stop and for how long and everything was taken care of. We stayed in Wurzburg, Rothenburg ob der tauber, Nuremberg, Munich, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Christmas in Vienna, Cesky Krumlov and New Year in Prague. First class rail reservations were all arranged, excellent hotels within walking distance from the railway station and suggested places of interested were all included in the package. All we had to do was enjoy the ride. The cost was very reasonable, the sevice was friendly, professional and outstanding in all aspects of the tour. We would highly recommend to-europe.com for anyone planning to travel through Europe and have done so to everyone who has asked us about our trip. We will certainly use Thomas and his staff on our next trip to Europe.
My first solo holiday and first time in Europe, this trip was amazing and perfectly organised by TOEurope. Maps and information for each location as well as entry passes to tours saved me alot of time so i could enjoy every moment. Communication with TOEurope is efficient, timely and clear, their service is perfect. The historic forts and castles, delicious food and the best beer anywhere, what are you waiting for?
We traveled with To-Europe in September this year, through the Rhineland, the Black Forest and Austria. We were very impressed. Thomas and his staff called us to discuss our tour options over the phone months in advance; they customized a ten day tour to meet our precise needs, and charged exactly what they said they would. Communication throughout was excellent and details were resolved promptly.
The tour itself was great, and very good value. We stayed in much nicer hotels than we would have chosen for ourselves and saw some beautiful highlights of southern Germany via the rail network.
All the planning around the train tickets and bookings was meticulous. To-Europe even included walking directions from the local train stations to our hotel each night, and handy suggestions for things to see and do. We only experienced one problem - right at the start when our taxi from Frankfurt airport wasn't there. A mistake at the taxi company, but Thomas sorted it out for us immediately, arranged another cab, and the cab company gave us a bottle of wine to make up for it. All along the way we felt very confident that everything was in place.
Our experience with To-Europe was excellent. We would highly recommend them.
David and Hillary,
Our trip included a 10 days self driving tour in Germany and 6 days rail travel in Switzerland. The weather was nice and the scenery was out of this world.
Thanks to all of your planning and arrangement, we focused on enjoying our trip more without worry.
We had our challenges due to the constant road constructions in Germany and not familiar with all of the road signs but it also created a lots of excitement and enriched our experiences.... 😀
I can not wait to start the plan for our 2016 trips. You will hear from us soon. Thanks again to Thomas and Michaela.
Thank you To-Europe and especially Thomas for a very well organized, and planned self-drive tour along the Romantic Road in Bavaria. Along the route we saw, visited and stayed in beautiful picture postcard towns. The choice of Hotels by To-Europe were top class. We had a very memorable holiday in a very beautiful country. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and congratulate To-Europe for a very well organized holiday which allowed us to see most of what we wanted during a very short period of time. Everything was excellent and we can’t wait for next year to book again with To-Europe. Gina, Margaret, Michael & Derek. Gibraltar
