That’s why taking a tour can be such a great option to ensure you get the most out of your experience. If you are thinking that you like the idea of being able to explore a new city on your own, pick a tour that gives you that flexibility, there are plenty of options.

What if you like to be active on your holiday? Then try a walking, cycling or even a kayaking tour there are so many amazing places you can explore this way.

Now you’re beginning to think that maybe a tour is the right way for you to explore Europe. But you don’t want a tour that tries to cram too much in or perhaps the thought of travelling with lots of other people isn’t your ideal – no problem. There are some fabulous tours that will introduce you to Europe’s wonderfully diverse nations and cultures, perfect for first-timers, there’s also an array of tours that focus on just a few countries, a special region, places of significance or even a single event.
