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!

Help!
