Started in 2010, NovoGuide Tours, provide the most affordable, fun, and easy trips to Europe for high school students, college students and adults. We offer student tours, guided tours for adults, packaged trips and travel booking. Founded by teachers, we started the company to provide students an affordable once in a lifetime trip to the places they learn about in school and expanded the company to offer affordable trips to any one. We've grown to provide affordable specialty tours that provide great service and unique itineraries. Our trips and tours are more than seeing Europe, they're experiencing it.
