First Time Summer Europe Trip. Contiki??

Jump to last reply

Three of my friends and I from Arizona, USA, are planning on going to Europe this summer for our first times. At first I wanted to plan my own trip, but was overwhelmed and opted to look at group tours. Through some recommendations and research I found Contiki, and a specific 19 day trip called "European Whirl" that visited many different countries in Europe. We all agreed, but after reading some more reviews about the pros and cons, we have become more worried about the quality of where we are staying, the amount of time on the coach bus, as well as some other things that come with a big group trip that you do not have to deal with while planning your own. I am now second guessing and wondering how difficult it would be to plan my own trip and if it is already to late because we want to go in early June and it is already mid March. Would it be better to put in the effort to plan our own trip?
