What is your favorite place in Europe so far?
Where would you most like to go next?
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
The alpine apartment Kandersteg, Switzerland has been our favorite. The location was ideal for walking to the train and the view of the mountains in the morning was breathtaking.
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
Finding inexpensive, regional wines

Which Untours have you already done?
Spain, Switzerland (Oberland), Sicily
