I am a 23 y.o. and really struggling to decide between Topdeck tours and Busabout to travel Europe solo in May/June 2014 during a 2 week break.

I wanted to avoid Contiki after hearing about its heavy drinking/partying culture as I wanted to focus on the sites rather than getting drunk every night and being too hung over to enjoy and traveling the next day

The topdeck tour I was looking at in particular were the 12 day 'Essential Europe' tour. However, I realize that the 'EuroHotel' tours with topdeck are geared towards couples but it is the only one that seem to fit my available dates.

However, Busabout sounded pretty good given the independence. However I am not sure whether it is so suitable for such a short time frame as I am really trying to see as much as I can.

Anyone who has been travelling with Topdeck or Busabout can shed some light onto this?
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
