Are Bus tours worth it.

Jump to last reply

Hello if you have been following my posts I am planning a month trip to Europe with my boyfriend, going to France, Germany, Switzerland (maybe) and Italy next spring/summer (may-june). Below is a more detailed itinerary. We are in our early 20's just out of University.

Paris 5 days
Mainz and down the Rhine river to Stuttgart, Strasboug, Karlsrue etc. (have not decided exact locations yet but will be spending about 6 days in the area) If we rearrange we may also try to see a major city like Munich.
Zurich Switzerland 3 days
Venice 3 days
Florence 6 days (may include a couple day trips in the area)
Rome 6 days (again some day trips)
Positano 3 Days

My main question is for what cities do you recommend booking a tour bus for a few hours of a day. I am not sure of the cost to do this but i'm wondering if it is worth it, or if the better experience is to just see the major sites and discover the cities by way of public transit.

The main cities I am wondering about are Paris (I have been there before, the boyfriend hasn't) Munich, Venice, Florence, and Rome. If you think getting a guided tour through any of the other cities I have mentioned is a good idea definitely let me know.

Thanks all!
