Book a MultiCountry Globus Tour or Travel Independently

Jump to last reply

My spouse and I (ages 27-35) plan to travel to Europe May 3-18. (14 nights after arrival). We planned a fast paced trip using the Global Eurail on our own to include:
Rome (3 nites);
Venice with overnight train to Munich (1 night);
Munich (3 nights) - 1 day trip to Salzburg
Lucerne (3 nights)
Paris (2 nights) Use TGV High Speed train to Spain...
Barcelona (2 nights)
Travel home
Est Lodging and travel in Europe = $4200.00

In looking at some Globus Tours they have everything already completed for you with some excursions and meals already planned for approx. $3000 more than our base cost. (includes all the major cities we want to see with exception of Barcelona). Yes we would be traveling MUCH more... and on a bus with many others, but we would have a tour guide and the ease of just going with the flow.

Just trying to get some expertise on whether I should continue on with my own planning and added stress or if it really is best to just book a tour and deal with rigid schedule and potentially crappy hotels and long bus rides haha.

We both realize this will not be a leisure tour and that it would be more enjoyable to do just 1 or 2 countries, but we both don't know if we'll ever have the opportunity to go back and want to make the most out of it, and we both have pretty high energy!
