    My first tour in europe was 13 or 14 days – the euro discovery, it was a great tour and I really enjoyed it. If I had to do it differently then I would have considered going 3 weeks. But 2 weeks is a good amount for a first tour. The euro discovery, Magic, Encounter are all in your time frame and are all popular tours. There are also budget tours, the highlights is one of them.

    Independant of tour itinerary, a lot depends on tour participants and chemistry of the group which can make a tour either too long or too short.
