PIETER REYNOLDS

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

There are few places on Earth touched by so much history. From the Romans and the Hun invaders to the horrors of fascism and communism, Eastern Europe has seen it all. Here, you can see the scars of history on the countries and buildings. You can bear witness to the effects on the people living here, the same people who survived it all and still had the strength for peaceful revolution. Eastern Europe is a fascinating region, and I look forward to sharing it with you.
