I was impressed with the ability to talk directly to Alahree and Ed as they were able to sort out issues for us directly. Overall: a really good time, the pupils had a fantastic experience and won a silver medal into the bargain.

“The contact I had with staff was always superb. The tour as a whole was fantastic. We all had an excellent time away and will continue to use Club Europe for our concert tours. “

Accommodation Review

“Fantastic, great access to excursions and a nice place to spend some time. It’s far enough from the centre of town to be quiet and safe but easily walkable. It’s run by one family, so it felt personal and welcoming. We used everything: skittles, gardens, playground, board games, karaoke, disco, bar and rehearsal space.”

Rep Review

“Damir made it a huge success. I needn’t have read our itinerary as he knew it so well. Everything ran smoothly due to his work. He went beyond what we expected from him. He went out trying to drum up an audience at all the concerts, helped load and unload and helped set up.”

Accommodation Review

“The hotel was in all fairness quite perfect. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the restaurant and bar area were beautifully quirky and had excellent facilities for the pupils to use, which helped to keep them entertained. Monique and her staff were the ultimate hosts and were friendly and helpful way beyond the call of duty. The quality of the food was superb. It is the first school trip abroad that I have been on where the pupils have all eaten well and been complimentary about the food, which was the right balance of being appealing to children of that age, whilst also healthy with a good mix of options including fresh salad every night.”
