Frequently Asked Questions
Do we have free time, or do we have to stay with the group?
It is up to you!
Unlike the typical bus tour of Europe, BUZZ’S hotels are located directly in the center of the city, so you have the freedom to come and go as you like. You can stop in for a midday power nap or shower before hitting the nightclubs. There are NO curfews & NO Lockouts! You cannot beat the hotel locations!
We understand that each person has a different personality with likes and dislikes, so we run activities and explore each city every day from
8 am to midnight or later, so you can get the most out of your vacation and see what YOU want to see.
With BUZZ, you have freedom of choice-- join us on our tours of the city, or take the time on your own to visit your personal “MUST SEE” site or museum. If you're not interested in nightclubs or discos, ask BUZZ, and he will offer many alternatives, and might even take you on a night tour of the city.
IF YOU DEPART FROM THE SCHEDULED ITINERARY YOU ARE NO LONGER PART OF BUZZ'S ADVENTURE TOURS.

Why aren’t all the meals provided and included in the tour price? How much Does food in Europe Cost?
Meals in Europe that are made for any large group are terrible, and offer mainly low quality pizza and pasta, but you will still have to pay outrageously high prices for water, coke or a beer. So much of life is the experience we have with friends while enjoying a nice meal, and that is even more true when it comes to traveling in Europe! We don't want you to have to plan your ENTIRE day around a group dinner that must be eaten at a specified time at a specified restaurant. Click here to learn more about meals and costs.
What about luggage?
You must be able to carry your own luggage, sometimes up 3 flights of stairs or more, and walk up to 15 minutes from the train station to your hotel with your Rolling Suitcase. Be able to board subways and trains and have the ability to lift your luggage into the overhead racks. Yet another reason to pack light!
What type of luggage do we need?
One carry-on suitcase with 4 wheels that spin 360 degrees – Called spinners.
Maximum carry-on size is 22” tall (including wheels) x 14” wide and 9” deep.
Plus 1 daypack or messenger bag, just like what you use at school.
NO duffel bags! NO Exceptions!
Pack for 10 – 14 days and do laundry in Europe.
Are there laundry facilities available?
Yes! Pack clothing for 10-14 days and you will only have to do laundry once or twice in Europe.
Laundromats are located near our hotels in Paris, Florence, Interlaken and Amsterdam.
