We will be touring Germany,France,Belgium, and Holland. The rail pass used to be a great deal, but the pricing makes it less so now. We are novices re Europe, but experienced budget travelers. Has anyone had experience with a tour/travel business called "bus about"? They seem to provide bus transportation on a set itinerary and include a guide along with the ride. One loop would suit us well. Is it worth it? Is the guide adequate in English? What alternatives would folks recommend? Sure would appreciate some help! We are retired couple who have a summer month for a (probably) one time only trip.
