I'm new here researching a solo RS tour for late June / early July 2016 and have found this forum incredibly helpful (1st RS tour, 1st solo travel, 1st European travel). I truly appreciate both the positive and negative feedback offered because I feel that disappointment occurs when expectations don't match reality. I won't be disappointed that my hotel doesn't have a/c, for example, if I knew that information going in.
With that being said, I could use some help picking an itinerary. (Yes, I know the 2016 dates/tours haven't been released yet, and things can change.) I'm trying to avoid itineraries that are too hot for June/July travel (Spain, Greece, Italy, etc.). I'm trying to avoid itineraries that are filled with families and kids (A couple of teens are fine, but I'm leaving my grumpy teen at home.). I also can't choose any tour over 14 scheduled days.
Any thoughts/ideas on these?
Berlin, Prague, and Vienna
Germany, Austria, and Switzerland
Paris and the Heart of France
Best of Europe 14 days: Too many kids? Too hot in Italy in June/July?
I read that a Best of Switzerland will be coming out - may be interested in that as well.
The Scandinavia, Russia, Baltics tours don't seem to attract my interest too much right now, nor do the Scotland, Ireland, England tours. I also looked at doing the city tours Paris and London back to back, but it got too pricey with the single supplements for both.
I welcome any advice and feedback, both positive and negative!
