GREAT Britain & Ireland

Great Britain & Ireland 5 countries \ 17 days

30 Sep 2011 - 15 Oct 2011 \ Definitely do this trip if you want to see the UK and have a limited time. Covered heaps of ground and saw so much but at the same time it wasn't endless hours on the bus with no stops... stopping at places during the day really broke up the trip. I did most of the optionals, recommend the optional dinners, everyone had a great time and I think most people bonded over these. Accommodation was very good, especially after being in Europe... even got a double bed each in some hotels!! I did this trip solo and I would go back in a heartbeat. Met some amazing people, had a ball, and got to experience some of the most beautiful sights in the world! Oooo not to mention eating copious amounts of scones... yumm!!!

Epic Europe

European Discovery 9 countries \ 13 days

15 Sep 2011 - 26 Sep 2011 \ This was my first ever tour... and I loved it!! Our group was great, we had an awesome tour guide and bus driver in Jen and Ricki!!!! Opening day of Oktoberfest... massive. I recommend going during Oktoberfest... a really experience!! Beautiful weather in September, loved all of the optionals, white water rafting was one of my favourites, the cool clear water was such a pretty colour and great for a hangover. Even though it was short, because it was sooo full on and fast paced, you really felt like you'd been together with everyone for ages. I would not advise this particular tour if you are looking for something a little bit more leisurely pace... it was bam bam bam, but if you could keep up, it was well worth it. Accommodation is interesting, always clean and tidy, but don't expect massive hotel rooms. Think of it more as a cultural experience.. trying the different hotel standards of each different country! Food. One word. ITALY. You have not eaten until you've been there. Wow, food coma status officially reached at the optional dinner in Florence - definitely worth it, had a ball with the dancing and then the nightclub after... won't ever forget discotek! Be prepared for some long days on the bus, but our tour guide was great, she gave us a lot of information and this was good to have history on the place you were headed. Word of warning... if you intend to enjoy the full day in Rome, try not to go too hard core the first night in Rome if you go to a bar... my group had a massive night and I was ill the whole next day in Rome... not particularly great on a 2 hour vatican tour in thick crowds and heat... I definitely recommend this trip... its great for a teaser/your first time, will make you want to go home and start planning a return trip to the places that you loved the most!!!
