    Had a few couples on my camper this year, which I wasn’t expecting. One couple had been married for 9 years! They had just as much fun as everyone else and partied as hard if not harder. There is nothing to worry about, going as a couple. You will be treated like everyone else and will have just as much fun, with the added bonus of sharing it with someone you love!

    Hotels vary on a tour to tour basis. If it is 2 to a room you will be with your partner. If it 3 or 4 to a room you will share your room with another person. This is uncontrollable unfortunately. If u want a room (tent) to urself go camping, the tents only fit 2!!

    Hi, I noticed you said these conditions were uncontrollable (sharing a room). Would you reccomend any of these trips for a honeymoon?

    If you are travelling on your honeymoon, I’d recommend only doing a hotel/superior tour. Then you’ll always be together.

    Also, you might want to look at more of a gateway tour (like the London & Paris type tours) where you’re on a bus less and will have more time to yourselves.

    Great, thank you. At first we considered doing a budget tour but then we realized you only have one honeymoon and probably not very many chances to go to Europe so we will definately look in to superior. Thank you

    Hey! We just got booked for a tour in August 08 as well and are traveling as a couple. Just wanted to clarify- if you book with a partner you room with your partner when its twin share and then for the three or four room groups with another pair but always stay with your friend/partner? Thanks for the help! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Yup if your booked with someone, you will always share a room with them.
