Best Tour/Company to see Most of Europe w/ 2 teenagers??

Jump to last reply

After seeing all of the high points in the U.S. our family is ready for its first trip to Europe. We have two daughters 14 and 16 and are planning on going in summer 2014. I suspect that this may be our final big vacation together as a family - so I want to expose our daughters to as much of Europe as possible in the shortest time - 12-14 days. France, England, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Beligium, Italy??
We would like to keep the costs down so I was thinking Cosmos since they seem to know their stuff – even though their hotels are not in the city – we are fine taking taxis or public transportation. We are good travelers and don't need fancy hotels, meals and don't mind walking. I have concerns by keeping the costs down we may spend just as much taking optional day tours. Also, our daughters are more into seeing the sites and scenery than hanging out in museums.
I know many people prefer to stay in fewer places for longer times – but since this is our family’s first trip to Europe – I think getting a little exposure to as much as possible is the better route.
Any recommendations on tour companies and specific tours?
