"Just a few words of thanks in appreciation of the excellent organisation and execution of the recent Italian trip. As novices to this type of break there was some trepidation at the time of booking but your professionalism and attention to detail made this one of the best holidays we have been on. Everything from the detailed planning, your friendly and inclusive approach and the excellent company of the group made the whole experience unforgettable. I’m sure the friendships forged on the road will continue to grow going forward! 

For anyone contemplating this type of experience for the first time we would have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending yourselves as perfect hosts and great company to travel with. Looking forward to doing it again and creating more memories and friendships in the future". C&A - "Italian Lakes & Mountains" September 2017 

"We would both like to thank E.D.T for what was and extremely memorable and enjoyable experience from driving across various European countries, scenic routes to the various stop overs on route. This was our first organised driving tour and exceeded all expectation. The level of planning, research and attention to detail is evident from the moment you actually sign up and of the highest quality. We highly recommend EDT and will be passing on our wonderful experience to our friends and family. Already planning the next one. Many thanks. S&B - "Italian Lakes and Mountains" September 2017 

"This is a thank you for planning a tremendous holiday for us.  We certainly could never have crammed so much into the fortnight without your help and experience! We managed to do every single one of the motor museums, factories, racing circuits and all the mountain passes. All in all a fantastic holiday for which we greatly appreciate your work in arranging - so thank you once again". K&A-M - "Super Cars & Super Passes" September 2017 

Once again we would like to thank you and all our fellow travellers for making the trip so memorable, we had a lovely time and cannot believe it is less than two weeks since our arrival in Wisques, it seems that we have done so much in that time. P & V - "Italian Lakes & Mountains" September 2017

"Thanks to you two for delivering such a great package of a driving holiday to the Italian Lakes  and back. The detail you had gone into with the road book, sat-nav’s, etc. as well as the running commentary you gave us all during the trip made for a truly memorable experience and is one that I will be heartily recommending to anyone who wants to listen. And as to ask if all of our party enjoyed it as much as we did, then the answer could only be – Ohhh Yessss!
 
Keep up the good work and we hope to join you for another tour sometime in a year or so". H&J - "Italian Lakes & Mountains" September 2017

"Thank you for arranging a great holiday for us.  We don’t normally give much feedback but on this occasion we felt we should, because we had a great time.
Euro tunnel was very smooth, the first hotel was an amazing experience, relaxed, stylish, gastronomic delight. Race Circuit at Geux was a thrill, very nostalgic,champagne houses were very welcoming, second hotel was very hospitable, amazing gardens, classic French dining.Third hotel was a great location with easy parking. The Swiss passes were an amazing driving experience.  The hotel for days 5 & 6 is in a great location with great amenities. Weather was amazing. The Black Forest hotel was modern, chic, in a brilliant rural location in a vineyard. A gastronomic delight. Driving the Rhine Valley was very picturesque, Boppard is a gem, driving the Green Hell at Nurburgring was a very memorable  experience, a real highlight.  The hotel there was a great experience, stylish, relaxed, brilliant atmosphere. Visiting the WW1 sites was very memorable. The hotel was a good experience, well located for the Euro Tunnel, great gardens and  good food. The Sat Nav worked brilliantly". J&R -  "Eurotour" September 2017

"An extremely well organised tour through fantastic and diverse scenery. Mark and Alison are highly competent tour guides but somehow manage to combine a level of professionalism and yet at the same time understand that their customers are fundamentaly there to enjoy themselves.

 

The level of planning that goes into the tours is evidently to a very high standard and this is demonstrated at numerous points throughout the tour, with Mark’s additional knowledge of points of interest along the way a welcome addition and in particular his enthusiasm and understanding of historical motor racing/drivers goes down well with most petrol heads.  Alison works tirelessly on some of the more thankless tasks, often behind the scenes, to make sure amongst other things that the accommodation is sorted on arrival and that check in goes without a hitch. Mark and Alison  are a great double act and I would highly recommend EDT". S&J - "Italian Lakes & Mountains" Sept 2017

"Thanks for an amazing experience the whole tour was meticulously planned from start to finish.This was our first European driving experience but will definitely not be the last, we're already thinking about our next one". P&P "Italian Lakes & Mountains" Sept 2017

"We had a great time. The hotel was really good, comfortable and central to Arras, food was amazing. It was a fascinating trip, my appetite is now whetted to carry out more research". JD - "WWI Battlefields" August 2017

"The Norway 2017 tour was my first with EDT, and my first on a major European driving tour. The route, the scenery, the hotels were all excellent, with the details meticulously planned out, important for a first timer like me. I also think it is the most fun I've ever had in a car, with the routes hand-picked by Mark for the maximum scenic & driving pleasure. As a solo traveller also great to be part of a group which certainly added to a fantastic experience. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend EDT." SR - "Land of the Midnight Sun" Tour June/July 2017

"We had a brilliant time. The weather was great as were all the hotels and locations. Everything went according to plan. Thanks very much, hopefully we can arrange something again with you in the future". R&J - "Barcelona & the French Riviera" July/August 2017

"We had an amazing time, much better than we had expected and we have made many new friends. The pre tour meeting, literature & equipment loaned for the tour, was very professional, informative and expertly delivered.  It was also nice to meet both you & Ali, as well as all of the other travellers before the departure day. We felt that you and Ali were also very professional and organised throughout the whole trip.  The route & hotel choices were great and we really felt that we were in safe hands whilst driving.  The towns and villages that we visited and stayed in, were all varied, interesting and a great choice.
Thank you for putting this holiday together for our local Porsche club and for making our initiation to touring in Europe such a pleasant one". D&J - "A Parade of Porsches" July 2017

"Thank you for organising a great road trip for us. We followed all of your "Points of Interest" suggestions (including making time to visit the Glacier which was spectacular!). We especially enjoyed the mountain passes on the first 2 days.

 

My son reminded me that you said your customers are mostly repeat customers ... so we will be back! In the meantime, you can tell your prospective customers that if a family from Singapore with no experience in long distance (or left hand) driving can do it and have fun, so can anyone". WC - "Super Cars & Super Passes"  July 2017

"Thanks for organising an amazing tour which we both thoroughly enjoyed.

 

The map books, Garmin’s and walkie-talkies make the holiday so much easier and so much more fun. Mark’s lead and ability to judge pace and passing, was also another strong plus for us. I think we would prefer to go with him rather than make our own way. His local knowledge and insightful comments were also a strong plus.

The pace of the tour was spot on, the company excellent and the banter definitely lifted spirits". P&J - "A Parade of Porsches" July 2017

"This was the first organised tour I have been on.  From start to finish it was planned and driven excellently.  Great driving roads and interesting stops.  The Roadbook was full of very useful information and the Sat-Nav system was to be envied not only in following the routes but the waypoints to follow if you took a break to detour.  When my car developed a problem and a replacement found, Alison quickly arranged for the replacement details with Eurotunnel so that the car passed through to the train with no delay.  So thank you for it all and thank you for leading the group.  Great job and would wholeheartedly recommend EDT to others".  NV - "A Parade of Porsches" July 2017  

"We would like to say thanks very much for a super time that we had on the trip. We feel that it was very well organised and we would certainly be happy to use your services again. We would also thoroughly recommend you both, to our friends and other car clubs.

 

We particularly enjoyed the two group meals and it was absolutely brilliant to be able to park in front of the Porsche museum really great.

 

Your book with all the trip details is so very well put together and enjoyable to read.

 

So just to sum up we were certainly 100% happy with the excellent holiday that you provided us with."  T&C - "A Parade of Porsches" July 2017  

"It was hard to believe it could be, but our second mega adventure with EDT was every bit as memorable as the first – crammed full of the “wow-factor”! The knowledge you have accumulated over the years and the attention to detail in your research and planning shows through in every element of the experience.
 
The briefing at the outset, the documentation, choice of route and hotels, stopping places etc. was extremely well thought out and we had a truly wonderful time, again.
 
Scandinavia was splendid, and combined with the magnificent scenery and great driving roads, we have so many memories that will be forever etched on our minds. We feel we have been away for more than two weeks, thoughts of work were banished, and we actually feel refreshed.
 
Our fellow travellers were such a nice bunch of people too. Our third tour cannot roll round soon enough! Thank you both so much.  Great job!"  F&J - "Land of the Midnight Sun Tour" July 2017

"A brief note to let you know what a fabulous time we had on our tour. It all went fabulously well and was enjoyed enormously. All hotels were great, the itinerary excellent and the Garmin Sat Nav marvellously stress free". R&G - Eurotour July 2017

"It was an amazing trip! Thanks again for sorting it!" RL - Spanish Paradors "Coast to Coast Tour" June 2017

"Thank you so much, Alison and Mark Andrews for another fantastic driving holiday, this time sightseeing in Barcelona, SW France and the Loire Valley. Fabulous driving (2610 miles door to door) but also great walking. European Driving Tours, you are a formidable team and we loved every single mile/step!" S & N - Barcelona & SW France Tour May 2017

"We had a great time. We really enjoyed Bruges and I would recommend anyone who wants to visit Bruges properly (as opposed to just using it as an overnight stop) to have an extra day there. The hotels were all excellent. We both particularly liked the hotel at Arnhem which was in a lovely setting and where we had a very good evening meal. All in all a fantastic holiday that we both thoroughly enjoyed so a big thank you from us". D&C - Dambusters Tour April 2017

"The holiday was lovely, and we can't thank you enough for helping us to arrange everything at such short notice. It really has been wonderful.". AW - Beer & Chocolate in Bruges Tour April 2017  

"Just back from our mega European driving tour - taking in France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany. We had an amazing time and saw some spectacular sights. We were very lucky with the weather. We were also very lucky to have come across European Driving Tours when we were in the planning stage - the work they did for us in suggesting places of interest, planning the route, suggesting and booking the hotels etc really made the holiday for us. Everything worked like clockwork - sat navs, Tour Book, hotels etc. Worth every penny! We would recommend them to anyone planning a similar trip and needing help. And we would definitely ask them to help us again if we do anything similar in the future. Can't speak highly enough of them....well done Mark & Alison". A&D - Eurotour 2016  

"It was an excellent tour and brilliant to make some new friends. Spectacular scenery, great banter, excellent driving. Looking forward to next year". DC - Monaco Yachtdesigner Tour 2016.

"A quick line to say a big thank you both for such a great trip to Northern Spain.

I was riding the Picos Mountains 20 years ago with an enduro bike group but had forgotten just how beautiful the area was. It was magic to go back and as always the organisation was brilliant. Will be looking at the next options for 2017+ with much enthusiasm". AW - Paradors of Northern Spain Tour 2016

"Thanks for organising another amazing trip. We have driven on so many awesome raods and without your guidance would not have experienced any of it". LF - Paradors of Northern Spain Tour 2016.

"Another fantastic European tour comes to an end. Many thanks to Mark and Alison for making it a fantastic trip. Great group." IM - Belgian F1 Tour Aug 2016

"In short, absolutely fabulous! I really don’t think you have any idea quite how good you are at this! I do feel the areas you really excelled on were as follows:
 
1)      General pre rally contact
2)      The route book/ daily itinery/ other participants contacts was great. 
3)      Hotels- All were more than adequate and well thought out with the all important secure parking. It makes a huge difference to the true car lover.
4)      The route itself couldn’t have been better/mileage intervals.
5)      General communication, walky talkies and your genuine concern for all participants- So important for the inexperienced . Even down to pre-planned fuel stops.
6)      Both your personalities really work for this type of event
 
So all in all, can’t really fault it whatsoever." DG - SCSP Tour Aug 2016

Various superlatives come to mind including thoughtful, meticulous, experianced, considerate, knowledgeable - and the list goes on. Alison is the personification of serenity and calm efficiency complimented by Mark's distinctive leadership, planning and organisational qualities clear for all to see. Alison made slipping in and out of hotels a painless delight and Mark's road book an extremely well written, informative and relevant piece of work." DG - Sep 2015

"Just to let you know that we had a fantastic trip in Germany and all the hotel arrangements/bookings went very smoothly.

"There is just one word to describe our trip; Stunning.
 
We have travelled most of Europe over the last 25 years on our own, with friends, on escorted tours and with car clubs.  But the roads, the scenery, the cars, the hotels from the family run Solden to the unique views over Maggiore and your leadership all joined together to provide an unrivalled experience."
