Greetings. I am wanting to travel Europe May-June this year. Have never been and meeting up witth two friends at the end of May to travel Prague, Turkey, Spain and Greek Islands for two weeks. Would like to do a tour before hand and finding it hard to decide which tour company to go with. I am a male in my mid-twenties and will be travelling alone - at least initially. I don't want to be the only single on the tour and would prefer to be around others of similar age. Additionally I want to experience the culture rather than just a pub crawl from site to site -mind you the occassional drink is a good way to get to know people which is a big part of why I am going. Would value any suggestions people have.
Kind regards Alex
Tours are okay but you may be better off figuring out where you want to go and what you want to see first. Then see if there is actually a tour that meets your needs.
I travel by myself and it is easy to start up coverstations with other travellers and meet people that way.
http://singles.activitybreaks.com But here is website for single travellers. it is not the best but you may find what you need.
The places you mentioned are really nice, especially Turkey, Spain Prague, Greece, there is sooo much to see here. I have been there too, but not travelling as such, more of a week holiday here and another holiday there...
Well a friend of mine went on a tour of Europe with STA Travel
She was full of praise. She said she met lots of wonderful people, from OZ too. But apparantly it was a little pricey, but give them a shout and see what they have to offer.
Best of luck
