European Whirl Tour (First time Europe Traveller)
- 3 responses so far
They are not strict i went on something very similar to this and i drank every night except one where i was sick…
Advice on money… if you do not want to shop it will not take alot i would say less than 2000 USD …. I tried to spend that in 22 days and had a hard time…. but i didn’t by allot of junk… i did go one every optional excursion except 2: mounlin rouge in paris which costs like 150 USD and something in Germany that you will not go on…..i suggest to go on everyone that you can .. they are worth it… Especially if you can do a romantic boat ride in Amsterdam….
Some nights will be hard to get to the city… not really hard but more difficult such as Rome….
There will be alot of drinking at the hotel bar… which lets you get to know your fellow travelers but you do not get to meet alot of locals….
If you like dancing and clubbing… i dont have much advice on that … i know there are a lot of “Disco’s” as they call them … or clubs but i only went to one or two ….
Hope that helped
Hey I’ve booked to leave on the whirl tour departing June 1st, thanks for you post helped sort out some money queries I had.
Really excited travelling solo hopefully it’s a good group, was your tour mixed ages?
Thanks for all of the info as well! Im travelling alone for the first time..Im booking my Euro Whirl trip for May 17, 08 and am kind of worried about how expensive it is to buy souvenirs. I was also wondering if anyone could tell me what the price of the average drink is in the countries on the Euro Whirl tour(France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Czech Republic)? I know that beer is really common and everything but what if you are not a beer drinker? What would be the cheapest drink(thats not totally disgusting) to get at a bar or club?
Any help would be awesome!
