David McGuffin's Exploring Europe, Inc. BBB Business Review

My Best of Greece tour visits my favorite Greek destinations both on and off the beaten path. You’ll get a solid introduction to the culture, history, art, and architecture made famous by the Greeks. Athens, the Parthenon, Ancient Agora, and Roman-era ruins are essential and we’ll dedicate the better part of two days exploring this capital city. Shaking off the big city, we will spend the remainder of our time visiting relaxing beaches, pristine islands, ancient windswept sites of worship, fishing villages, and laid back towns. My Best of Greece tour provides the perfect mix of sightseeing, education, and relaxation. 

All my tours are designed for strictly small groups ranging from 6 to 24 travelers. This means that we can travel off the beaten path and under the big bus tour radar and experience Europe on a unique and personal level. Eating well is also a priority, and you’ll get your fair share of fine food sourced locally by excellent chefs. I’ve spent years poking around Europe’s nooks and crannies looking for unique restaurants, clean hotels with character and cozy B&Bs. Our tours include all tips and gratuities to drivers, local guides, and your tour leader. Finally, we’ll never nickel and dime you with extras and add-ons. The advertised price is the price you pay.

    David's tour ran very smooth. Great hotel rooms with breakfast each morning. He gave informative tours of the cities and areas we visited and then we had time on our own to visit in more detail or go shopping (my favorite activity anywhere). David was happy to stop along the way for photo opps and rest stops. We did check out some new sites with him. Each day was an adventure filled with great food, wine, and sites. Loved every moment of the trip. Planning next adventure with him now. -Elizabeth, Orange Park, FL

    Enjoyed each meal, never thought about beans being a breakfast food before now have once a week. My best memory of dinner was taking a private boat to go have dinner on my birthday, this was another WOW day for me. – Dianna, Pensacola, FL

    Dianna- The Tuscan Villa Vacation

    Probably my most favorite part of the tour – having someone else pick the restaurant!! Usually when I go to Europe with my husband we wander around in circles for a prolonged amount of time studying menus and trying to find the "perfect" place. Tedious and exhausting. It was so nice to just have the perfect restaurant already picked out. I know this is not an easy task to try to accommodate multiple people's picky food preferences, so hats off to Dave for being up to the challenge. And every meal I had was delicious!! Dave knows what he's doing. –Diana, Seattle, WA

    I'd like to add that possibly our group had just too good of a time! Our small group really enjoyed every minute and had an absolute blast with Charlotte. We just laughed and had fun everyday. While that makes for a fantastic vacation...it does make the 're-entry' to normal life just painful. - THE ESSENCE OF IRELAND Fall 2015


    We were on our tour in 2008 and still talk about how much fun we had every time we get together. The "picnic" in Greve after the wine tasting is also very memorable. With a little information from David, we were able to stay after the tour and made our way to Orvieto where we also had a really nice time. The whole trip has so many memorable moments - every day was something special.

    Every tour that I have ever taken with David has been outstanding. I have been traveling with him for ten years now. My last trip was great as well. David is top notch. I would not travel abroad with anyone else

    Whether you are a seasoned traveller or are considering Europe for the first time, David McGuffin should be your first choice. You will not be satisfied with any other.
