European Magic 8 countries \ 10 days
14 Jun 2013 - 24 Jun 2013 \ The European magic tour was a jam packed tour and a fantastic way to see tons of sites quickly! We had a great group, mostly couples and we had a higher median age which made for a nice, chill group. Don't get me wrong, we definitely partied (and I don't drink but you can still have fun hanging out with everyone!) although our tour manager probably partied harder than the rest of us! ;) We ended up doing most of the optionals, which we hadn't intended on doing but turned out to be a ton of fun and we're glad we did. Moulin rouge was a great optional to end the tour! The bus was our main source of transport (although if you hung out late at night you had to take the train or taxi home... Pretty cheap and manageable though). It could get a little cramped in the window seat if you're like me and like to stretch out when you sleep but it was otherwise a very comfy bus and it was so convenient to just get to sleep between cities. We also only had like 34 people so we had some extra open seats which was very nice. I loved getting to eat a couple provided meals (breakfast was crucial) but then getting to run off sometimes and grab our own meals. Food in Europe is tasty! Tip: eat at the trattoria alla Madonna in Venice for lunch... Best pasta I've ever had. This was an amazing tour and we're already plotting our next!

London Explorer (4 nights) 1 country \ 5 days
11 Jun 2013 - 15 Jun 2013 \ We did the European magic tour but wanted to spend some time in london beforehand. Adding on the london explorer tour was clutch! It was so helpful and convenient. They provided us with the hotel extension, tickets for a hop on hop off bus for a day, two days tube pass, a west end musical (we saw spamalot) and a tour for Windsor castle, bath and Stonehenge. It was a perfect way for us to see what we wanted but give us some sort of structure and home base for our visit. They also provided our tube tickets for getting in from and back to the airport. Score!
