The tour manager was absolutely first rate. Efficient and helpful. Our guides in Vienna and Prague were both splendid. Ulrike ( Vienna) was knowledgeable and very likable. She took us around the main sites and gave us a mental sketch map of the city which then enabled us to find out way about. Radek ( Prague) was hilarious. Excellent journey about the city and witty commentary. Berlin was efficient. Hotels splendid especially the Diplomat in Prague.
