European Magic VS. European Horizons

22 Mar 2010 Explorer1174323 said

Hi Everyone!!<BR><BR>My friend and I want to either do the European Magic or Horizons tour in June, but we are not sure which one to choose. They both have pros and cons. The Magic tour gives you better accomodations, but the Horizons one is cheaper. Can anyone share their experiences on these tours? Any recommendations?<BR><BR>I would really appreciate your help <img src="" alt="Big Grin" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::D-->

    I am also looking at both the European trips but think I am swaying towards the Horizon as it is cheaper and I will have more money to spend on the trip!
    I am looking to go July or August.

    hey i have literally just booked to go on horizons, i too was torn between the two but then realised that the horizons is cheaper, you also get an extra day for that price and with that extra day you spend a night in Tyrol. Havent been yet though so i can give you a review when i return if that helps?x

    Hey i have just done the european horizons! really great tour! the accommodation was really good even though it was in budget accommodation – this worked out to be two hotels – 4 sharing a room, one hostel – 4 sharing a room (the hostel was actually as nice as the hotels), a four bed room in a contiki gasthof, a 3 bed room in a cabin, a four bed room in a chalet/garden shed type structure and a four bed room in a big chalet which housed everyone. Only the big chalet had bathrooms that were not ensuite, so in my opinion for budget it was great value. if you were to stay in traditional hostels you would be having communual showers all the time and we only had a shower outside of the bedroom on one occasion.

    If you want to know anything else other than accomodation let me know!
