Conquering Europe Alone - Thinking About Doing A Tour

Jump to last reply

I am planning on traveling to Europe next summer by myself. I was originally going to plan the trip myself, but recently I've considered doing a Bus Tour. I've looked at Contiki, TopDeck, Aesu. I know there are a lot of disadvantages to a bus tour- lack of freedom, rushed pace, lots of bus time- but I also don't think I have the confidence to travel abroad alone as a 21-year-old who has never done any traveling. I'm hoping doing a bus tour will give me the confidence to travel alone in a less restricted manner in the future, and I also hope it will be a good chance to meet people. My budget is very restricted- I'd like to be as cheap as possible.

I'm also thinking about doing a tour and spending a week or so after just traveling around to where ever I wished I would've spent more time (I'm really interested in London, France, Italy, Spain, and Greece).

My question is any recommendation on what companies/tours to take to save money but also have a good experience? Any general tips about taking tours?
