Tralgar tour VS do it ourselves
Posted 12 May 2008 - 07:35 AM
We're hoping to be away for at least 30 days. Between 30 - 40 all up including flights and stop overs to and from.
However, we're up in the air with whether or not we should do a Trafalgar Tour (not into the contiki ones), or map it all out and do it ourselves.
As I understand it a Trafalgar tour includes everything from the accomodation to the food, to some sightseeing, so it would be an advantage not having to stress about where to sleep, what food to buy, where's good to go and where's not, but on the same token we have been told an 'organised tour' is not particularly the way to go for a honeymoon.
Just chasing some thoughts on this.. Have you done an organised tour for your honeymoon? Would you? Why, or why not?

There is another company called Top Deck which many of my firends have used through Europe and recommend.
If I were just going on a holiday and wanted to see lots of Europe, then I guess I would probably jump on an organised tour. AS you said, it's a no brainer, you dont have to think about too much
Not sure if I would do it for honeymoon, but I have been on organised tours with Honeymooners (one couple were so short of cash they didnt even pay the extra suppplement to share a room - they went as singles and each shared with strangers!) I guess yes, its your honeymoon, but you want to enjoy it too. Those organised tours usually leave plenty of time for oyu to do your own thing and there will be time for you to be alone if thats what you want

We are going to do it ourselves, based on our own itinerary, our own timing, our own places to stay, and importantly, our own wake-up times.
Thank you for the replies ladies, it's always good to hear what other people think.
We're envisaging between 30 - 40 days including flights and stopovers, so with any luck we should be able to cover a fair bit of ground in that time.
Thanks again x

It's probably going to work out more expensive, but we get to do what we want to do and don't have to worry about other people, so hopefully, all goes well! Fingers crossed!

you know what I'm like with the million and one questions!
Thank you, I most likely will take you up on the offer in another couple of months time. For now we're just panning out main places to visit, then we'll get into the nitty gritty of it shortly.
