Anyone planning to do Europe tour in summer 2014?

6 Jul 2013 duckeggy asked


I am from the UK but living in Aus- Queensland at the moment (I travel quite a lot). Just wondering if any Aussies or anyone from anywhere is planning to do any European tours for the summer of 2014- I'm really thinking about it, but scared that a few of my friends who have agreed to go may drop out & I'll be left myself; just wondering who might also be going for it & may be in the same position, so I know I won't be alone in that situation!

    Yeah i’d love to explore more of Greece! Yeah i’d love to do the Panorama one but I’ve got to be back for the 26th July and the earliest I can leave is end of june. Don’t think i’d fit it in. Yeah i’ll be travelling alone too! Wasn’t sure what the majority of people did- either go with friends or not:)

    You could always just do the Panorama? It includes everything from the experience and a bit more… But experience is cheaper thus why I’m leaning to it maybe :) – I’ve read around and seems like there a quite a lot of being going solo because friends dip out etc :)

    I checked the availability for the Panorama and its fully booked for the dates I could do. Think out of them all I’m definitely set on the experience tour at the minute. Ahh that’s good then!:) was unsure if more people went with friends, glad others will be going alone:)

    Sweet! May see you on the tour! The experience is looking good.. Decent amount of days :) yeah so glad others are going alone makes me less nervous about the whole thing haha

    I’ll be going solo on the European Trail tour starting May 30. I’m from the US and this will be my first time travelling to Europe, I can’t wait! If anyone else is on that tour it would be great to get in touch!
