European Experience or European Expedition??

19 Jan 2013 Lauren de G asked

Hey happy travelers

I'm torn between slumming it in a tent for less or just paying the extra for an actual room... Anyone have advice on which is better?

Im looking at going end June 2013, not sure if that makes a difference to the choice of tour, weather wise. I dont particularly want to get eaten alive by mosquitos or die of heat at night!!

I'm a terrible Newbie at traveling but excited :)

    Don’t worry both trips stay at the same place in Venice where the Mosquitoes will eat you alive. And Rome can be hotter than Hades and both tours stay at the same place there too. I like the budget over the camping, but getting to see Berlin and Prague is a huge perk of the Expedition. Plus in some places there are cabin upgrades for 15-25 Euro.
