Basketmaker Amy Posted March 10, 2008 Share Posted March 10, 2008 Hi, We are in the "dreaming" stages of going to Europe next summer with our 3 ds. I looked at the Rick Steve's Best of Family Europe Tour (14 days, $3595 plus air, less $200 per kid) and it looks great (except the price!) I was wondering how much we would save if we planned the trip ourselves? I wouldn't mind spending the time researching everything and we wouldn't mind lugging our stuff around (the boys would be 16,14, and 11). Anybody been there, done that? What kind of ballpark figure would I be looking at spending for a budget/moderate trip to Europe? As far as places we'd like to visit...Ancient Rome, Florence, Venice, some castles somewhere in Germany?, Switzerland, Austria, Paris. (I'd love to visit Greece and Spain...but don't think I could do that in 2 weeks. We are self employed and really couldn't be gone longer than 2 weeks) Thanks for any planning advice you can give. I have placed a request for Rick Steve's Best of Europe guide book, as well as his Back Door to Europe book. Back to dreamin'.....:):):) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
