The Nomadic Network’s Western Europe Tour

July 17 - July 30, 2022

One of the most fascinating regions of Europe, this tour hops through some of the major capitals of Western Europe to show that even the most popular places still have hidden gems and local areas to explore and fall in love with.

This tour of Western Europe covers many of the region’s best places. You’ll dine on exquisite French cuisine in Paris, drink local beers in Brussels, explore the historic canals of Amsterdam, and tour arty Berlin.

With a focus on budget travel, this itinerary was put together by me to showcase my favorite areas in the destinations we visit. I’ve lived in both Amsterdam and Paris and extensively explored this region (even given tours in the past.)

You’ll get off the beaten path and explore the places that I spent years exploring. On this trip, you’ll feast on the best food, tour world-class museums, lounge in historic parks, and drink in all the experiences these famous cities have to offer. You’ll get off the beaten path, explore local neighborhoods, and walk away with a deeper understanding of the culture and history behind each location.

If you’re the kind of person who wants a deeper, more authentic, more nuanced experience, this tour is for you.

Come join me (Nomadic Matt) for a fun-filled visit through one of my favorite regions in the world.

FAQ

What are your COVID policies?
To ensure we comply with all entry and exit requirements in a simple and easy manner, we require all participants on these tours to be fully vaccinated.

What about COVID testing?
Should COVID testing be required as a condition of entry or exit, we will help you find testing locations, though you are responsible for the cost of the COVID test and for booking your own tests.

Tell me about your guides.
While I’ll be on this tour showing you around, we’ll also have a local guide with us too! Our expert tour leaders are fully licensed local guides. They’ll be responsible for ensuring the smooth operation of the trip, handling all of the local logistics, and dealing with any unforeseen situations that may arise. Our tour leaders are always on hand, every day of the trip, to provide additional information, create spontaneous activities, join the group for non-included activities and meals, and ensure that the trip is as memorable, fun, and informative as possible.

Will I have any time to myself?
Of course! We hate tours that book every minute of your day. While we will be busy, there will also be plenty of time for you to explore on your own. Travel is about adventure and discovery, so we emphasize that on my tours. We want you to see stuff that interests you specifically.

What am I going to do during the listed “free time”?
Our guides will be on hand to give you suggestions, help you decide what to do, and be around. If you want to go off on your own, we get that. We want you to explore and break out of your comfort zone! Our guides are here to help and, after you join the tour, you’ll be sent a list of potential activities you can do on your own.

How many spots can I purchase at once?
Reservations on the tour are limited to a maximum of two per person to ensure that everyone who wants to gets a chance to go.

What kind of rooms are we staying in?
We will be staying in hostel dorm rooms: males in one room, females in another. If you are traveling as a couple or just want your own room, you can get a private room for an additional cost.

Is airfare provided?
No, you’ll be responsible for your own airfare to and from the tour.

Will I need travel insurance?
Yes, all guests will be required to have travel insurance for the duration of the trip. We’ll be asking for proof before departure. If you don’t have it, you won’t be able to continue on the tour.

Is there an age requirement?
You must be at least 18 years old.

Will I need to fill out any release forms?
Yes, you’ll be required to fill out and sign a liability waiver releasing Nomadic Matt, Inc. from any and all liability related to the tour.

What about visas?
If you require a visa to enter any of these destinations, you’ll need to get that in advance at your own expense. We do not offer any help in this area.

What if I change my mind? What is your refund policy?
We’ll cry, but We’ll understand. Plans change. The refund policy is as follows: Deposits 100% refundable for 60 days (or until 90 days before the tour starts, whichever comes first). Cancelations made between 90 – 60 days before the tour start date: 100% refund of the balance amount (the deposit is not included in the refund). Cancelations made between 59 – 31 days before the tour start date: 50% refund of the balance amount. Cancelations made from 30-1 days before the tour start date: 0% refund of the balance amount.

When is the balance due?
Payment is due in full 30 days after the date of deposit.

Is there a waiting list?
People sometimes rush to secure a spot but don’t always get the time off work and might need to cancel. Therefore, we have a waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here to join the waitlist.

I still have questions. Can I contact you?
Of course! My email is matt@nomadicmatt.com.
