Can my spouse and I go on one of your tours?
Our tours are for groups only. A “group” is considered 15 or more people.
What are your rates for individual tours?
We don’t offer individual tours. We offer unique tour experiences for groups, and we don’t have set rates for generic tours. Contact us about setting up a tour and we’ll work to create a program that’s just right for you.
What type of currency do Europeans use?
Most West European countries have adopted the Euro as their currency. These include Germany, France, Austria, and many others.
Can I use my American hairdryer in Europe?
Only if you have a power converter and adapter. Europeans use a different voltage than North Americans. Europeans use 230 volts while Americans and Canadians use 120 volts.
It’s 3:00pm in New York right now. What time is it in Europe?
Most of continental Europe is 6 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time (NY). So when it is 3:00pm in NY, it would be 9:00pm in Germany. The British Isles and Portugal are only 5 hours ahead, while Finland and far Eastern Europe is 7 hours.
Is the food edible?
Of course the food is edible. European food is excellent!
Where can I convert my money to Euros?
You can convert currency at airports, banks, and exchange offices. It’s best to bring a debit card and withdraw money from an ATM. Traveller’s cheques are rarely a good idea these days.
Is it cold in Europe?
Europe’s climate is as varied as North America’s. The majority of the continent, however, is incredibly temperate, with warm summers and colder winters.
Do they drive cars in Europe?
Of course they do! In addition, Europeans have developed an excellent public transportation system comprised of various trains, trams, and busses.
If I tell someone in Europe how tall I am in feet, will they understand me?
With the exception of the US, Myanmar, and Liberia, the rest of the world uses the Metric System. They might ask you to convert that to centimeters!
Everyone in Europe speaks English, right?
The simple answer is no. Europeans pride themselves on their plethora of cultures, including their own individual languages. With the influence of globalization, however, many Europeans know at least a little English, and many are fluent. However, some don’t speak English at all.
What is your most common tour?
Many of our guests take some variation of a Lutherland tour, exploring the areas frequented by the reformer Martin Luther. We have a special working relationship with the church organizations in how we piece together tours.
Who is Martin Luther?
Martin Luther was the 16th Century German monk who began the Protestant Reformation, from which all protestant churches are descended.
Where is your office?
Our office is located in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany.
Do your tour guides speak English?
Of course! All our tour guides and drivers are bilingual, if not multilingual.
How long does it take to fly to Europe?
It takes around 8.5 hours to fly to Germany from New York.
How will we travel around Europe once we get there?
Our drivers will meet you at the airport with their coaches and will take you everywhere scheduled on the itinerary, including back to the airport at the end of your journey.
Can you drink the water?
The water is perfectly safe to drink, although most Europeans avoid doing so, preferring carbonated water.
How much luggage should I pack?
One large suitcase should be more than enough for 2 weeks or longer.
Do Europeans wear Jeans?
Yes. Europeans wear similar clothing to North Americans: jeans, t-shirts, etc.
Why should I come to Europe?
Why not? The reasons vary greatly, but there’s always something fun and educational about visiting somewhere that’s different from where you live. If you’re a Protestant, it’s nice to see the places where your traditions were written. If you’re of European descent, it’s fun to see the places where your ancestors came from. If not, Europe is both beautiful and charming enough to make an excellent vacation destination anyway.
