HELP: Cantonese tours through Europe

Jump to last reply

Hi - my parents are taking their first (and probably last/only) tour through Europe. I have gone many times and have begged them to let me treat them to a trip to the continent I love so much. They have finally agreed, but now during the planning process, I am having frustrations trying to find a suitable tour for them.

They are 55 and 60 years' old, and I worry about them dealing with long hours on a bus. While they are fine with hours of bus, I would like to average less than 5 hours per day. The 7-day tour they found has 3 days of 7 hours of bus and 2 days of 6 hours... and that's assuming no traffic! I'm 30 and don't think I can handle that!

They would like to see Italy and France (Paris mostly), and are open to other countries along the way as well. They prefer architectural sights as opposed to museums and countryside. They would like a Cantonese-speaking tour guide. Adding Spain or London would be nice, but the tour should be no longer than 9 days, leaving the middle/end of May 2012.

I'm more than happy to fly them places, but it seems all the Chinese tours are by bus only and cover at least 3 cities a day. I can't afford to pay for a private tour for the whole trip but wish I could!

Please let me know if any suggestions - I need to book their flights and tours soon!

Thanks!
