"Tours in Europe are great when you don’t know where to go, what to see, but sometimes you don’t want structure. Sometimes you want to explore, get lost, see how the locals live; this is where a tour company such as EF College Break is a good choice. These are educational tours for ages 18-28. Sure they have fully guided tours as well for those that wish for a more structured holiday, where as College Break provides just the right amount of “me time”. One day you can join a tour of the Palace of Versailles, the next you hop on the Metro and wander to the Champs Elysee with your new friends/roommates." - Sasha Mitsch
"I did a 23 day tour around Europe with TopDeck which I would highly recommend to everyone." - Matt, New Zealand
"My advice to anyone contemplating travelling alone in Europe is to try a tour. It’s a great confidence booster and well worth the money you pay. It was hassle free as all the important things were taken care of, and it also meant I was seeing all the main attractions at each destination but still having the opportunity to do my own exploring and finding hidden treasures of my own. All you need to worry about is deciding which trip to go on." - Karyn Hicks, UK
"If you are looking for a wild party with no sleep and friends for life choose a tour with Contiki. When I was living in London I booked a few tours in Europe with Contiki and they were honestly the best time ever. They are just easy and save you a lot of time and effort." - Liz, Australia
