    I did this tour summer of 2009. Age doesn’t matter, my tour had both age limits in it and everyone got alone fine and just enjoy the tour and being in Europe!
    I would say you need at least 50euro a day saved. I went with an average of 70euro and I was fine, had one or two drinks but that was it. It also depends on how much you drink as alcohol is not cheap over there. So if you are a big drinker I would even go for 100 euro a day.
    There will be some days when you will spend more then that and then there will be days where you hardly spending anything or nothing at all as you are traveling on the bus most of the day.

    Hope that helped.
