    Hi I did this tour in September! We had the most amazing time. I loved every place we went to. All the optionals are great and i would definitely do the Paragliding, white water rafting and Gondola ride again! Austria & the Swiss alps were the 2 most beautiful places i have seen! The bike ride in Austria is fantastic. It’s 25km around mountains (The hardesr ride you will ever do) but you pass the most amazing scenery! If you need to know anything about this tour i will be more than happy to give you some advise.

    Sounds brillant. I do have a couple of questions actually. Are the sites you stay at far away from the main center and therefore at night you stayed more in the site rather than the actual nightlife. This is just something i heard. Also the person i may be travelling was wondering if hairdryers are available or do you have to bring your own? Finally are the bags weighed in the morning or the night before you start the trip

    The sites we didn’t go out were Venice – The site had their own bar, Rhine Valley – This was our quietest night and Rome. We had a I Love Roma party in Rome and that was fun. We all wrote messages on each others shirts. The best nights out were the Red Garter & Space Disco in Florence and Paris! The Sites are a bit out of the city but the bus usually drops you off for all the site seeing and picks you up round 4pm to go back to the site and get ready. Then the bus drops us off at dinner and we usually walk to all the hot spots and catch a cab home. It was only about 25 Euro a cab so make sure u have group of people! I didn’t see any hair dryers at all and the Swiss have a smaller style power adaptor than the normal Euro one so make sure u have the 2 sizes. We didn’t have phones or hair straighteners at all for 2 days! The bags are weighed in the morning of the tour. We left at 6.30am. It has to be under 20kgs.
