The alternative to mass-produced, run-around tours

DianeDennisWalkingThruPoppies European Focus tours are the antidote to the bus trips which promise a packed itinerary but deliver hectic, dawn to dusk schedules which are impossible to keep up with, much less enjoy.

How European Focus Provides an Authentic Experience

  • Wind down in distinctive small inns and hotels to luxury five star properties
  • Take in back roads scenery not possible on big bus tours, which stick to major highways
  • Relax with flexibility and spontaneity built into our daily plan
  • Have closer contact with the locals, something not possible on a group tour
  • Relish in off-the-beaten track experiences
  • Enjoy unmatched personal attention
