Planning advice- London, Paris, Heidelberg & Munich

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (newlyweds, in our 30's) are planning on going to Europe May 27/28 to June 13th of this year. It's a first trip for both of us. We are going to London, Paris, Heidelberg and Munich - flying into London and Munich home via Iceland Air is the plan.

We currently have hotels booked, but we can cancel them at any time.

We are thinking this trip might be pricier than we expected and we need advice. We currently are saying at ibis London Euston St Pancras (479.75 total GBP) , ibis Paris Opera la Fayette (470 total euro), Heidelberg Marriott Hotel ($210 total USD) & ibis MunichCity (347.70 total euro).

I love the locations of each hotel and looking for another set of hotels for each city is daunting after all the research I originally did.

Plus than we want to do some tours that we are planning on purchasing thu Viator & we want to purchase the London Pass and the Paris Passes- which is £200-£258 (for two people) depending on the city plus a pass for Heidelberg which is £14. Unsure regarding Munich yet. Than we are planning on a day trip with transfers to Disneyland Paris which is apparently £150 for two people. The tours would be a side trip to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, incl Lunch ($266 total), a side trip to the Eagles Nest in Germany, a skip the line tour in Paris for Eiffel Tower, renting a car in Germany to drive to Munich, and the train travel from London to Paris and Paris to Heidelberg.

The airfare is running around $1991 for two people...

When it's all said and done (hotels, tours, airfare, plus food and drink) we are thinking it will be about a $10,000 trip and that's just overwhelming. I'm sure we could stay in hostels vs. hotel rooms but we like the privacy of a hotel room & by getting a private room, it seems to be close to the pricing I already have for the hotel.

Is this normal for a 16/17 day trip to Europe? Thank you!
