"Just a quick note to say ‘thank you’ regarding the 2023 MYS Tour, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all". RF - Monaco Yacht Designer Tour, September 2023 

"Having just returned from your Greatest Driving Roads Tour, I would like to say a big thank you for such an excellent trip. It was well worth the long drives to get to and from Romania, to be able to drive both the Transfagarasan and the Transalpina Highways, with fantastic views and great company. It is great to catch up with old friends and make new ones on your tours. The hotels you chose were a selection of city hotels and castles, which makes for a good mix during the tour. As always there was a selection of different roads from the unlimited autobahns to the mountain passes and the twisty country roads. As usual there were many stops and a variety of visits along the way, Memento Park Budapest with all the statues, Walhalla, Bran Castle, Mucholapka, and the Atlantic Wall Museum to name but a few. Your excellent knowledge of the areas and places we visited is fantastic and really makes the whole trip that much better. Thanks again for such a great time and look forward to traveling again with you next year". J&A - The Greatest Driving Road in the World, September 2023  

"I thought I would drop you a quick note to say many thanks for a great driving trip.  All the hotels were great and the Sat Nav behaved well". D&S - Pyrenees, September 2023  

"We had a fabulous tour where once again both your hotel selection and attention to detail with the information were spot on making for a stress free tour. We loved Levanto and the hotel which was just perfect.

The weather was great too. Thanks again for sorting everything out and I’m sure we’ll be back for another tour in the future". P&E - Cinque Terre Sunsets Tour, August 2023

"We recently had our second trip of the year with Mark and Alison, to Germany. The Germany in June trip was as we had hoped, so full of great hotels, brilliant motoring themed places to visit, including the three Motorworld Hotels in Germany, these are just exceptional, and we look forward to going back in September. The WWII side of the trip was equally as brilliant, with visits to many places utilised by the Germans during the war, we even got into see the Golden Room, in the Zeppelinhaupttribüne (Zeppelin Tribune).The other WWII visits were equally as enlightening and, in the case of Dachau, it was shocking to be at the pace where so many lost their lives for no real reason. It was very heart wrenching. It is visits like these that make EDT a great choice for holidays and we are looking forward to our next one in September to Romania. We hope the weather is equally as good then as it was whilst in Germany". J&A - Germany in June, June 2023

"2800 enjoyable miles later! Thanks to all for many Smiles along the Miles (or Kilometres). Big thanks to Mark & Ali for all their effort, top job giving us a great first EDT experience. See some of you again hopefully soon on another trip with EDT". C&P - Dolomites & Europe's Greatest Passes, July 2023

"We gave you the brief which you accepted and without doubt you delivered a wonderful tour which will live long in the memory. All the paperwork, maps, instructions & the sat nav ensured we got the most outof the tour. All the paradors were very good but Leon was outstanding. The roadbook & details re fuel stops were extremely comprehensive & accurate. So in summary we were so pleased we did the trip – it had been on the “bucket list” for so long . We would have no hesitation in recommending EDT to our friends & family  - we had a fantastic time made so much more enjoyable by your detailed planning of the tour. So it’s a big thank you to you both and wish you all success for the future". E&L - Picos de Europas, June 2023

"The Germany trip that we have just completed with European Driving Tours was an excellent mix of car based hotels and exhibitions/personal collections.  The WWII element of the tour was covered extensively, in particular the Nuremberg trials and many sites around the Nuremberg and Munich areas.  The trip to Dachau was really interesting, but sobering at the same time.

Another trip meticulously organised by Mark and Ali, with good hotels, particularly the Motorworld ones which we personally enjoyed.  

A fantastic overall tour, and we are already looking forward to the next one with EDT in 2024". S&J - Germany in June, June 2023

"Our trip to the Italian Lakes was fantastic, a dream come true from the route to the locations and the beautiful hotels. Thank you both very much for making it such a special trip. We have many photos and lifetime memories. Until our next adventure". A&L - Italian Lakes & Mountains, June 2023

"Just a note to let you know what a great time we've had touring Germany with you over the last couple of weeks. There were most certainly some unusual and interesting sights and experiences that we definitely wouldn't have found or gone to by ourselves! It was a pleasure to spend time in your company". M&J - Germany in June, June 2023

"Great time, great group of friends and great driving. Looking forward to our next trip with EDT to Romania in September". L&D - Sardinia & Corsica, May 2023

"Thank you for a great holiday and for making this a great time away and as always for making us feel welcome and part of the group". J&A - Sardinia & Corsica, May 2023

"It was great to catch up with everyone again after such a long break, great holiday & great company". C&M - Sardinia & Corsica, May 2023

"Our thanks to you all for being a great group of fellow travellers on this latest adventure.  Your company was much appreciated". M&S - Sardinia & Corsica, May 2023

"Just a quick email to say thank you for the fantastic time we have had over the last couple of weeks on our Super Cars and Super Passes Tour - the roads were fabulous, all the hotels were superb and the museums were brilliant. We were lucky enough to be at the Mille Miglia museum at the same time as a car rally was finishing - so we got to sit in the courtyard with a beer and watch some stunning cars crossing the finishing line. In short, thanks to your brilliant planning/organisation, detailed road book and faultless sat nav, we have had the trip of a lifetime. Hopefully this won't be our last trip with European Driving Tours". IS - Super Cars & Super Passes Tour, September 2022. 

"We have recently completed the Italian Job trip with EDT and had a fantastic time.  The whole trip was organised to the usual high standard that we have come to expect from Mark and Ali and their genuine enthusiasm for this tour in particular was evident from start to finish. This is a bucket list trip for any true petrolhead or fan of the film and the added walking tour of Turin gave us the chance to see many of the main movie locations in one day. We would highly recommend EDT and are already planning our next trip with them". S&J - The Italian Job Tour, July 2022.

"This was our first guided tour and right from the first contact Mark & Ali couldn't do enough for us, the booking process was simple and the details that we needed were made available at just the right time. The group we toured with were a real eclectic mix of personalities and ages, all were great fun to be with, there was a real sense of camaraderie, and a lot of laughs were had by all of us. The whole tour was so well organised, all we had to do was to get up and get in our cars and drive, our hosts, Mark and Ali looked after everyone making sure that everybody was comfortable with the tech and making sure that no-one got lost along the way. Mark entertained us with his extensive knowledge of the scheduled interest points plus a whole host of other points that we passed and would never have known about if he hadn't told us. The hotels were all excellent and comfortable and conveniently positioned for all the points we wanted to explore.The attention to detail and organisation of the itinerary, hotels and fuel stops was second to none for which I think Ali needs a special mention, thanks. We are already looking to go again in the future, just need to decide which tour is the one for us, it will be a tough act to follow as the Italian Job was so enjoyable". R&T - The Italian Job Tour, July 2022.

"When we first booked with EDT some years back, we had no idea that this tour even existed, until over dinner one evening Mark mentioned it and as the film "The Italian Job" is my favourite film it was a no brainer. To be able to visit so many locations that were used in the making of the film, from where Benny Hill picked his flowers and pushed the "BIG" lady through the door, to the pinnacle, being able to get on the roof of the Lingotto Hotel where the mini's did their big jump, it was a film fan's perfect tour. The hotels were, as always, quality. Mark and Ali never fail to provide a brilliant tour, which is why this was our third, and we have four more already booked and two more that we will likely do in 2024. The attention to detail is immaculate and they are always there to help if needed, they have loads of patience too. Thank you once again". J & A - The Italian Job Tour, July 2022.

"Just a short note to thank you both for another fantastic holiday. I honestly can’t fault a single thing – the route, the hotels, the stops… everything down to the smallest details, I honestly don’t know how you do it but thank you so much! On top of that, I can’t begin to imagine how many hours you put into researching all those details in the film, your pictures and narratives really made the locations come to life. More great memories and more good friends made - thank you.

One final thank you for your help when I had the puncture on the last day, in particular with the Eurotunnel upgrade. It was getting late when I finally got away on Friday and not having to worry about crossing times, plus being able to skip the queues was really appreciated". RE - The Italian Job Tour, July 2022.

"We had a great time and plenty of adventures every day visiting the different locations so thanks for all your help in organising and suggesting places. We especially enjoyed Turin, the hotel at Lingotto and the city were excellent. We had a great day of sunshine on Sunday to get the roof down on the car when we drove the passes on Sunday towards Annecy. All the hotels were good. Again thanks for everything. N&R - Italy Tour, June 2022.

"Just wanted to let you know we had a great time! We really appreciated the scenic routes to lovely places, great hotels and, as David has already mentioned, the Reserve Naturelle Marais de Lavours, which you found for us.  The car parking at Menton was no problem at all, the receptionists knew a space had been booked for us as soon as I said our names and we were immediately shown where to put the car. We very much appreciate all your research to enable us to do our "electric" tour". C&D - Riviera Adventure Tour, June 2022. 

"The trip was fantastic. Vasa museum fantastic, and also the café. Sami Parliament well worth seeing. Olderfjord to Havøysund road is spectacular.  Alta rock carvings and museum excellent, all set around a beautiful bay. Northern Lights Cathedral has fantastic architecture. Well worth seeing inside, plus we had a perfect ‘midnight sun' view from our bedroom. Narvik has a cable car a mile from the hotel which gives spectacular views of the bay and bridge. Trondheim with its Royal Palace, Cathedral, gardens and squares, plus Bergen style warehouses on the waterfront.  We would have happily stayed 2 nights. Dora 1 U boat pens well worth a visit. Saab museum is great. We were very happy with all the hotels - the highlights being Molde and Copenhagen. As we said at the start, we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Kind regards and thank you for a memorable trip". K&A - Scandinavia Tour, June/July 2022

It was great to be finally back on the road again and what a trip to start with. Brilliant driving roads, stunning scenery, amazing hotels and great company. As ever, the planning, organisation and attention to detail by Ali & Mark made the whole experience a real pleasure. Passionate people providing a unique experience for driving & culture enthusiasts. Already looking forward to the next one. C&A - Passes of the Pyrenees Tour, June 2022.

Many thanks for organising such a super tour for us. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and feel we’ve done pretty well just by ourselves and my limited Spanish. For us, the time in Bilbao and slight amendments to the original tour were just right. C&M - Spain - Cities, Canyons and Gorges Tour, June 2022. 

On reflection of our trip, Passes of the Pyrenees, brings back wonderful memories of the most amazing routes through epic mountain passes and tunnels, often above the clouds, pausing for group and car photos, sharing the road with the occasional cow, or herd of cows with their melodious bells!

It was a particularly wonderful mix of people who took time to hear what everyone else had to say, and look out for their neighbour. We shared photos, so most people had pictures of their car at a different stage of their journey.

The places of interest we visited were varied, so much to reflect on in the days and months after our return to our normal lives. Alison and Mark were inspirational in their accompanied tour of the Pyrenees 2022, and yes, we have booked another tour for 2023! G&N - Passes of the Pyrenees Tour June 2022.

As a single traveller I was made welcome and fitted into the group very well. This being my first road trip I was apprehensive but with the welcome that was soon put to rest. The trip for me was all  things I wanted driving, scenery, history, exploring town's and villages and time for some geocaching! Overall fantastic, well run and very helpful and I would go again for sure. Many thanks  to my fellow travellers who also made the journey what it was and finally to Mark and Alison. MB - Passes of the Pyrenees Tour, June 2022.

"Another brilliant EDT tour worth every minute of the wait. Fantastic roads, great hotels, good company and as usual flawless organisation throughout. Looking forward to another tour next year and if you enjoy driving coupled with visits to interesting places in the company of like-minded people an EDT tour is the ideal holiday for you". P&M - Passes of the Pyrenees Tour, June 2022. 

"This was my second tour with EDT and it was every bit as good as the first, excellent organisation, great hotels, a brilliant itinerary and awesome roads combined with Marks informative commentary of the places we passed and visited. I highly recommend them”. A&N - Passes of the Pyrenees Tour, June 2022. 

"Thanks for a great holiday and and the exceptional planning and marshalling. Along with the Dolomites, the Pyrenees are definitely my favourite places to ride or drive". AW - Passes of the Pyrenees Tour, June 2022.

"Many thanks for another great tour, had great fun in the hills in Spain...." DL - Monaco Yacht Show Tour, Setember 2021   

"A great tour, thanks" AL - Monaco Yacht Show Tour, Setember 2021   

"Massive thank you to Mark and Alison for making our first ever driving tour the best holiday we've ever been on. The roads/routes planned out were amazing and the various stops at tourist attractions, along with Mark and Alison's amazing knowledge as you travel made this a truly unique experience. We were made to feel at home with a great group of people and hope to join everyone on future travels again soon". R&S - Austrian Adventure, July 2019

"This year's tour was the best yet for me! The routes were all great and for me the distance was about right. Hotels were great and the first and last one in particular were absolutely stunning. I'll go back to the group for their feedback for next year but thought I'd let you know that it was a big success again so thanks again for that!" JH - Monaco Yacht Show Tour, September 2019

"Hi Alison/Mark, another great tour, great hotels, well done both!" DC - Monaco Yacht Show Tour, Setember 2019

"Mark and Ali guided us on an epic European adventure across the Alps to the beautiful Italian lakes. Our heads have just about stopped spinning from the amazing sights and driving sensations packed into the 10 day tour. The EDT team have clearly put huge effort into searching out great driving roads which form as much of the experience as the stops and destinations along the route. The hotels selected included some real hidden gems. The escorted tour adds the optional extra dimension of Mark’s convoy leadership and radio support. We especially enjoyed meeting new friends during the tour and were made to feel very welcome amongst a contingent of EDT regulars". D&L - Luxury Italian Lakes, September 2019

"J and I would like to thank you for the great holiday we have had with EDT.  Your attention to detail, and extensive knowledge of the places that we visited on the trip made the holiday truly memorable". P&J - Luxury Italian Lakes, September 2019

"We very much enjoyed our 7th tour with EDT. The main focus was of course Tuscany, and the circular tours gave us a splendid and wide-ranging introduction to an area new to us, and to which we would love to return. Weather was glorious whilst we were there and on the return.  Besides the food, wine, colour, ambience, architectural and scenic beauty of Tuscany itself, highlights were the Turin Lingotto test track drive (what a coup and privilege to do this), and the spectacular Alpine passes of Mont Cenis and Col D’Iseran.  Again we made new friends and great memories with a lovely group of like-minded people. Many thanks for all the hard work in creating another epic adventure". J&F - Under the Tuscan Sun September 2019

"During this trip we have toured amazing cities, gems that we would have overlooked but for you. The drive from Tromso with those impeccable views will live with us forever. We would like to record our heartfelt thanks for arranging such a memorable trip". L&D - Baltic Blast July/August 2019

"The Baltic Blast was the most wonderful touring adventure we’ve experienced so far and we’ve been touring on our own for 20 years! It gave us the opportunity  to visit many new places and got us further north than we've ever been before. It was our third trip with you and as usual your meticulous planning and attention to detail ensured the whole trip ran without a hitch. Thanks once again, we’re coming with you on the Viennese Whirl but also looking forward to news on future planned trips". M&J - Baltic Blast July/August 2019

"Just a note to say thank you for an excellently organised and run tour in the Austrian Adventure. Fantastic drives over the passes, in particular the Stelvio, and the unusual but very interesting stops for tours of museums, the Eagles Nest and Werfen castle among others.  You never let us down, terrific!" NV - Austrian Adventure, July 2019

This was our second trip with EDT, and without exception the quality of the hotels, parking, food (where applicable) and Mark and Ally, are all second to none, if you have never considered a trip like this before you can be assured you will be looked after very well, from the start to the finish, and beyond. The places that M & A find for us to visit, look around or just arrive at, are all spectacular, from hotels on F1 racing circuits, driving around racing tracks, up and down passes (The Stelvio frightened me, but was as fun as hell) to the scenic drives around all the countries. We have already booked for 2020 and once M & A send us 2021 calendar we are booking two more. The other group members are always friendly, helpful and all enjoy a good chat and drink at the end of each stunning day. JM - Austrian Adventure, July 2019

"Many many thanks for an outstanding trip, for my first touring holiday it was an amazing experience and I had a great time.Thank you for your hard work on the organisation and routes, can’t wait for next year". AB - Austrian Adventure 2019

"R and I would like to thank you for such a great tour. The scenery, the roads, the hotels and the weather were all fantastic and we look forward to our next tour in September to the Italian Lakes". D&R - Austrian Adventure July 2019

"Having just got back from your Austrian Adventure Tour, I would just like to say how much we enjoyed it. This was our second tour and again it was a great experence, made all the better by the knowledge and expertise of Mark and Ali. Everything ran very smoothly and combined with a great group of people, this made the holiday really enjoyable. We have already booked for next year and are waiting for the 2021 itinerary to book more tours and make more fantastic memories. Thanks for a great time". AH - Austrian Adventure July 2019

"R and I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our first Escorted Tour.  The “admin”, driving, hotels, company and the weather was great too. Thank you very much. We are very keen to come along again in 2021, all 3 of the escorted tours you mentioned sounded very good". R&K - Austrian Adventure July 2019 

"Thanks very much to you both, really enjoyed my first tour.  Already looking forward to the Pyrenees next year". DH - Austrian Adventure July 2019

"Another outstanding EDT adventure taking us to parts of the world that were astonishingly beautiful, staying in magical locations that we feel privileged to have visited.Thank you Ali and Mark for all the hard work, you made the experience very special, also thanks to all those we travelled with, for the fun times shared and company along the journey". P&V - North West Spain & Portugal Tour May/June 2019

We both just want to say thanks again for another fantastic holiday, making so many amazing memories with fantastic people. You both do a brilliant job. Roll on Tuscany in September!! P&P - North West Spain & Portugal Tour May/June 2019

"Thanks for another great tour. Appreciate everything that you and Mark do for us". S&B - North West Spain & Portugal Tour May/June 2019

Thanks for an amazing drive, and what a place to stay OMG, never had such a fantastic view of the sea and coastline from any hotel ever!!! It's awesome. N&L - North West Spain & Portugal Tour May/June 2019

"Thank you both for a great holiday. It lived up totally to your usual high standard". J&P - North West Spain & Portugal May/June 2019 

A quick note to thank you both for the lovely holiday we have just had.
All my rooms were great , especially the bed in Porto - could have stayed there for days !! To see the north west of Spain & Santiago de Compostela was incredible. The scenery is just amazing. The couple of days in Porto was a perfect tonic for “chilling” Many thanks, I will now start looking forward to next years tour to the Pyrenees with you. AW - North West Spain & Portugal Tour May/June 2019

"Both P and myself would like to thank you and Alison for your faultless planning of the whole trip. We found your Points of Interest to be interesting and very informative, adding to the trip experience. Your varied choice of hotels from the superbly traditional one in Sweden to the very modern one in Copenhagen were spot on". T&P - Aarhus Classic Tour May 2019

"We had a brilliant tour, (I think it safe to say the best yet)... some of the best roads I, and I think all of the others, had ever driven on... well done! ... thank you again to both you and Mark". DC - Yacht Designers Tour September 2018

"The trip was great. The Alpine passes were stunning. Had a couple of pool days in Desenzano. Visited the Ferrari museum as well as the Mille Miglia and Schlumpf museums. The hotel on Lake Como was an absolute gem of a place as was the hotel in Epernay. The restaurant outside Nancy was absolutely outstanding. How on earth did you find that one! We had an absolutely fantastic time and the info pack was great. It became the bible! It’s a great way of seeing a bit of the world and was really well organised so we’ll definitely be back when we’re ready to do another tour. Thanks for all your help. It made for an amazing experience". M&J - Italian Lakes & Mountains Tour September 2018

"Yet again Mark and Alison have excelled in not only planning a fantastic tour, but also in carrying it out. The hotels were excellent, the passes spectacular and the museums and interest stops were often bucket list tick offs for any petrol head or car enthusiast.  With additional non car related visits to Casa Pavarotti and also the Parmigiano cheese farm, this was a balanced and interesting tour with plenty of variety for everyone to be happy. Already looking forward to Tuscany 2019!!" S&J - The Grand Tour September 2018

"Thanks for another fantastic tour ,we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can’t wait for the next one to Spain and Portugal next year. If Carlsberg did car tours then they would be the same as EDT,s!!" P&P - The Grand Tour September 2018

“My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5th driving tour with EDT. Like the previous trips this proved to be another memorable adventure which, despite having returned to the reality of work two weeks ago, still has us enthusing about our experiences.  As others have noted, we have been inspired to delve further into the places we visited and associated historical events.  We may sadly be no longer on the tour, but we are still feeling the benefits of it!  So our grateful thanks again for the splendid organisation, and to our fellow travellers for their brilliant company.  We look forward to many future tours – keep them coming!" J&F - Escape to Colditz Tour August 2018

"We have just returned from the Escape to Colditz Tour. This was our first experience of driving in a group on the continent. Upon our arrival at the meeting point, a hotel near Calais, Mark and Alison, immediately made us feel welcome and introduced us to the other members of the group. Along the way, we visited some interesting towns, historical locations and stayed in some amazing hotels, castles in Germany and a palace in Poland being some of the highlights. Places that we would never have found on our own. The trip was exceptionally well organised, each of the locations we stayed had been well chosen, with secure parking for the cars and a highly efficient checking in procedure managed by Alison. We have already booked our next tour with EDT and we are hoping to meet up with the friends we made during this tour in the near future". K&C - Escape to Colditz Tour August 2018

"Having just returned from your “Escape to Colditz" driving tour I would like to thank you both for the excellently arranged and organised tour, This was our first tour with European Driving Tours and we were made to feel welcome with the group, the attention to detail was second to none, from the choice and quality of the hotels, the tour information to the protection of the cars overnight, the level of the tour guides knowledge of the sites visited was exceptional and made the whole tour interesting, informative and fun, we have already booked our next tour next year and are really looking forward to it". AH - Escape to Colditz Tour August 2018

"The tour was organised to perfection and went like clockwork. I am now looking stuff up on the net about the dams raid and Colditz etc - it was like being in a dream, I could not believe that I was actually seeing them.
Hotels were very good, our favourite being the one at the Eder dam. We would love to revisit.Thanks for an experience to remember". C&L - Escape to Colditz Tour August 2018

"Trip was off the charts. Truly the best one yet. Thank you both so much.     
100% top marks!!" BP - Pyrenees Dash Tour July 2018

"Recently returned from the tour to Classic Le Mans, my second tour with EDT. As with the last one, Mark and Alison put together a great mix of excellent driving roads and sites to visit with several interesting stops on the way and return leg through Normandy. These included, for example, a visit to a champagne house, the great Chateaux of Fountainebleau and Chambord, the cathedral at Sees and the basilica of St Therese of Lisieux.  I cannot praise Mark and Alison enough and am looking forward to the tours along the German Romantic Road and next year to Austria". NV - Classic Le Mans Tour July 2018

"My wife and I have just spent a wonderful week touring the Champagne Region and Loire Valley on our way to Classic Le Mans, followed by a couple of days touring through Normandy on the return leg. We were both very impressed with how well the tour was organised. Mark and Alison are meticulous in their planning and every day included two or more memorable visits to well known sites and attractions of real interest, which will provide great memories as we look back fondly on the tour. The driving was fun and the routes, which were pre-loaded on easy to use sat navs, well planned, allowing us to relax and enjoy the experience of touring in France". R&C - Classic Le Mans Tour July 2018

"Well, You've done it again. Such a great tour perfectly executed. Le Mans was fantastic, the hotels and food was excellent, as was the company. Just the right amount of spirited driving through some lovely French  scenery. We can't thank you enough. Now we look forward to Austria next year". D&R - Classic Le Mans Tour July 2018

Paul and I have just spent a fabulous week on our second trip with Mark & Alison of European Driving Tours.  Le Mans with all the Porsches was a great experience.  After the excitement of Le Mans we had a  couple of days touring through Normandy before returning home. Extremely well organised. Mark and Alison are meticulous in their planning and every day we visited great villages and beautiful buildings.  This trip will be added to our memory bank along with last years Parade of Porsches. The driving was fun and the routes, well planned, allowed us to enjoy the experience of touring in France. A special  thank you to Mark for encouraging me to take control of the C4S!!. Can’t wait until Romantic Road in September. P&S - Classic Le Mans Tour July 2018

"This was our third adventure with Mark and Ali and WOW, what a trip!  It’s 25 years since we visited Sicily and we always wanted to return.  To do so, driving the original roads of the legendary Targa Florio historic motor race plus the Rome to Brescia half of the Mille Miglia, some lesser known but beautifully scenic mountain passes (Col du Galibier and San Bernardino) staying in excellent hotels with superb restaurants either in-house or a few minutes walk away, all in the company of friendly like-minded people was a wonderful experience.  We have travelled with several other car tour companies over the years.  None of these has fully delivered on what they promised.  EDT consistently does everything they say they will do and more.  With EDT, the whole experience is far, far greater than the sum of the parts and we are already counting the days to our next trip – to Spain and Portugal in 2019". P&B - Targa Florio Tour June 2018

"We totally concur with the feedback already left relating to the epic Targa Florio adventure and would heartily recommend European Driving Tours to anyone who wants to explore the most scenic and interesting destinations in Europe by way of well thought out routes including exciting roads and lovely hotels.  We have thoroughly enjoyed four tours so far and that is why we have another three booked through 2018/9.  Being busy people we don’t have the time to do our own research and planning, but can totally rely on all that being done to the highest standard and for a reasonable and sensible cost.  Finally, the group tours obviously attract like-minded people so you “hit the ground running” with your fellow travellers, and an experience shared is all the more special.  We look forward to many more adventures with EDT". J&F - Targa Florio Tour June 2018

"We had a fantastic time, it was a great tour. Good company, good hotels, fab scenery, overall a successful trip which we were delighted with"  J&E - Targa Florio Tour June 2018

"Highly recommended . Very friendly company who are extremely passionate about what they do ...just about to book our 8th tour ... enough said!!!" N&L -Targa Florio Tour June2018

"Once again many thanks for the opportunity to join you on such an epic adventure, a trip of priceless memories and experience". C&A Targa Florio Tour June 2018

"Once again thanks so much for a great trip and great company. We both had a really great time and back to work today was hard!" T&P - Targa Florio Tour June 2018

"We both wanted to say a huge thank you to you and Alison for the fabulous trip we’ve had the pleasure to join you on. We certainly ticked some amazing boxes on our lists and even some we never knew we had on the lists! We really enjoyed the hotels and locations and whilst some of the roads weren’t the best of surfaces to drive for me, I fully got the importance they have in history of motorsport and enjoyed the chance to drive them. Added to some great hoons towards the end of the trip ? which rate very highly for enjoyment. Brilliantly executed and organised as always". G&J - Targa Florio Tour June 2018

"We had a great time Mark and Alison, thank you for arranging such a fab tour!  Thanks again". DC - "Monaco Yachtdesigner Tour" September 2017 

"Just wanted to thank you for for such a wonderful route you created for us! Breathtaking.Thank you once again, here’s to next year". JH - "Monaco Yachtdesigner Tour" September 2017 

"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

"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."
