Awesome Itinerary and Value

08 Aug 2011 - 02 Sep 2011

For the person who has already seen western Europe, I was looking for a trip that would visit different areas. Turkey, Greece and The Netherlands were high on my list, so this naturally came up in the searches. The price point was right. It included lots of meals, which helped keep the budget low. Somethings you should know before picking this tour. Campgrounds are usually outside of the city (makes sense if you think about it ). The campsites range from 20-50mins outside the city. Most days the bus will drive you into city and pick you up at the end of the day. If you like to go dancing or clubbing at night, cabs can be a pain in the butt. The cook was very organized and made great food quickly. Keep in mind that whenever you switch campsites, the time to pack and unpack the coach can take an hour. You have the tents, cook tent, cooking equipment, luggage and bags so that needs to be put back on the coach so that everything fits.
