Italy, England, OR France in 2015: Tour Operators - Or go it alone?

Jump to last reply

I'm just beginning to think about/plan trip to any one or combo of the countries in my title. We're recently retired, only speak English, don't want a lot of hassles, confusing time consuming work, /etc. Maybe with that, I'm answering my own question. (Go with tour operator?). I've also toyed with the idea of Eurail. We're just back from Ireland where we did self-catering and car hire (rear view mirror scraped off within first 1/2 hour!). While we loved the country and our trip, it proved expensive by purchasing food, fuel and tour site admissions on our own - vs. as part of a tour. I've been to Paris. London, Rome, Venice and Florence - but my husband has not. I'd really like him to experience these cities - and include some new sites for me to experience as well. However, this may be the last Europe trip - or 2nd to last. Any suggestions (of tour operators, cost saving ideas, etc) are welcome. Duration: 10 to 15 days. Budget: +/- 2.5k each - not including air fare. Thanks for some ideas to get my planning started in the right direction!
