"Every trip we have gone on has been a blast with this organization. We have stayed at high quality hostels and have been given the opportunity to see both the touristy and local attractions in each destination. The Bus2alps leaders have also been amazing. All the Bus2alps leaders have a very transparent devotion and passion to taking care of every group member and to making sure they have the best experience possible while traveling around Europe.
