    i did this tour about mid year in 2008 and had the time of my life!
    plently of time for shopping everywhere esp spain! some girls went crazy over shopping and brought extra suit cases to carry it all whilst i didn’t go as crazy.

    highly recommend this tour! lots of partying and amazing places you visit. hype yourself up cause i wish i could do it all again!!!

    Heya i did this tour last september. It was bloody fantastic! Like the other replier, you get around 2 days every stop so there is usually a day to do whatever u want. Barcelona and Florence are big shopping cities that the girls went crazy for. Paris , Nice, Rome and all of Greece were unforgettable and i miss them. Have a mad time!

    I am looking at doing this tour on the 28th of May next year. I have been convinced to go Greek Islands by my travel agent they used to live there and its amazing they said.

    I’m going on this trip as well!
    I know there are a lot of others that offer more countries, but I think this one is great value, cuz u get more nights stay where you stop, and it includes Greece!

    Remember, nothing is as good as in the pictures.Brochures are designed to highlight a places good points, and hype it up to the max!

    But I know a few people that have been to Greece before, and they all agree…Its beautiful!
