Europe July 2013

9 Aug 2012 EAC13 asked


Hey everyone, Im planning to head to Europe at the end of June 2013 and do a tour of Europe at the start of July, followed by Greek Islands and maybe also Croatia Islands. Just wondering what tours everyones doing or if there are anything that you suggest. Im thinking European Whirl but European Escapade does look good too :)

    Hey, I did European Escapade last month and would highly recommend it- an amazing trip!! Next year i’m planning on doing European Spirit, to see Croatia, Prague, Berlin and Slovenia, and then the Greek Island Hopping tour afterwards.

    Yeah definitely have a look! I’ll be honest and say the main attraction of the Spanish Spree is Ibiza for me :) I’m so excited for that place.

    Sounds amazing. I know what you mean, there’s so many places I want to visit! Could easily spend a good couple of months travelling around there.

    I’m doing a London to Athens tour in June and then starting Greek Island Hopping on July 4th – anyone else going to be on that tour? I hear July is the best time to be in the Greek Isles so it should be awesome! :)

    Megan, Im going to do the Greek Island Adventurer towards the end of July, will be amazing! :)
