    Hey out of 23 days you will have at least 10 days of travel. So for these days 30 Euro is heaps. Then sightseeing days depending on how you spend it on souvenirs food etc 50-70 Euro per day. Then for nights out (about 4 over a 23 day period) an extra 30-40 euro. Then allow $500-$900 AUD for optionals. So that would mean approx 1,200 euro $2500-$3000 AUD) for the trip. Hope this was what you were thinking, but keep in mind that there are people who do it much cheaper than this

    i am doing european panorama – 28 days leaving london september 3rd… i am taking $5000 aussie cause i’m also doing 5 nights in london (4 nights before tour and 1 night after). I have been told by some people that is plenty, other people say i should allow some margin just in case…

    I think its going to be plenty. i dont drink much at all and am pretty smart when it comes to spending…

    Not sure if it helps… i know others who have taken $3000 and come home with change… ?? Guess it depends on how crazy you are with your souveniers…
