Europe family vacation - struggling to get process started

Jump to last reply

We have decided to take our family of five (45, 45, 18, 16, 12) to Europe this upcoming June.

Things we are somewhat in agreement on:
2 to 2.5 weeks
Budget 4000 per person including food and travel (not including misc shopping money)
Continental Europe (kids want to visit places where English is not primary language)
Preference for older locations versus modern
Interested in visiting at least one castle
Want to utilize trains primarily
We do not want to "waste" lots of time traveling (avoid trying to visit Berlin, Rome and Paris, for example)
No guided tour, we do not want every day scheduled for us
Girls want to shop at unique places
We want to spend enough time at each location to get a good feel for the culture, not a whirlwind tour that is more tiring than Disney

We picked up a globus tour book hoping to get ideas but we are struggling because everything looks good!

We are inclined to work with a good travel agent but don't know who to use.

We are thinking maybe Northern Europe (France, Germany, Belgium, holland and Germany) because the countries are so close to each other, but we are not sure

We need to get this scheduled and would appreciate suggestions on moving forward.
