Europe Tour Company for solos?

34, never been to Europe.

I was thinking I would like to go on a tour of Europe that whirls through several different countries and then come back in my own time and pick my favourite parts. Does anyone know of such a place? I am too old for Contiki it'd seem.

All the tours

I just couldn't handle being the weird autistic old guy tagging along on a tour full of happy couples, would ruin me

    Isnt that every flight these days? Everyones got their families and theyre giving dagger eyes.
    Give less fricks. Not your problem.

    Wanna go to eu? Buy a ticket, show up to check in 3 hours before flight, get through security, board plane, dont sperg out, sit comfy and drink some coffee midflight. Boom youre in.

    34 shouldn't make you that weird old guy unless you look old. Just be the photography nerd, as that generally excuses all travelling alone in normie minds.

    Is it worth going to Europe to see just one country?

      Eurotrip checklists are fricking moronic, stop doing this. You experience very little of the country beyond the biggest tourist traps and spend most of your time in transit.
      If you only have like two weeks, stick to one country and actually see it properly. If you want to do multiple in one go, reserve months.

      where might you go?

      yes visiting one country for a trip is very satisfying
      visiting one destination can be very satisfying
      it can depend on the duration of the trip
      and the countries you had in mind
      the popular countries have a dozen normie tier tourist destinations and 100 cool destinations to pass by if you knew a little bit of the country
      the big countries also have regional differences and are basically a collection of small countries brought together

      but because of location nothing stops you from splitting the trip to 2 countries or more, it is just if travel time is a problem for you or not.

    There's a couple of those companies that cater to millennials and everyone is usually single. Just make sure you ask for the 4chsn discount.

    Find someone to travel with, loser. You're too old to be joining tours yourself. You're just gonna scare off people in their early 20s with your balding head and sweaty hands

    Dont want to look autistic? wear a cheapish comfy suit for your flight, people will think you're travelling for business at 34 years old. you can ditch the guise once you reach your hotel.

      >Dont want to look autistic? wear a cheapish comfy suit for your flight,
      board flight near the end once everyone is onboard
      this guy is sitting in your row
      how do you react?

    if you're autistic then yea. But it ultimately doesn't matter.

    Piggy backing this thread; why are tours so fricking moronic. I want a tour where I meet up with the group and tour guide at a certain time, see place, then we are let go for the day for X amount of days. Everything's uber planned to where to eat and lodge. Fricking brits and their holiday makers, just as bad as the fricking chinese.

      its almost like these tours are intended to make these specific places money or something

      There are many tours just like that.
      Obviously they advertise a full itinerary but unless you pick a place where you need to be herded around for safety, you can easily drop out and join back later on.

      t. two week tour where I skipped three days in the capital to hang out with a friend living nearby

      what the frick is your problem? arrange shit yourself then, it isn't hard to sort out a couple of flights, trains/buses, book a few hotels. you can book a fricking tour at basically any attraction you show up at for a couple of hours and do whatever you want for the rest of the day after

      in this scenario - do you need the people to be the same every location?
      because you just join a walking tour or whatever activity tour you are interested in your location
      walking tours can be free relying on tips and only take 1-2 hours, some special tours are more, some bus/ride tours can be a whole day planned
      its basically all of tripadvisor now

    >i've never been to europe before
    >i want to go on a tour that spans several countries, then come back again after picking my favorites
    Don't do this, it's a waste of time. You pick one country and then explore it rather than hop from capital to capital across multiple countries. Its your first time so I'll give you the recommended with Italy > Spain > France as order of importance:
    The standard Rome > Florence > Venice trip is a miracle worker for babbys first eurotrip. The food is familiar but of a much higher quality, rome is the history you studied in school come to life, Florence is a nice daytrip and Venice is a one of a kind marvel to lounge around in and enjoy some fresh seafood. You can do the whole thing comfortably in 10 days, so if you have even more time to spare you can actually extend the trip to many other places like Capri, Naples, Monopoli and the Apulia region, Verona, Cinque Terre... Just avoid Milan, super boring.
    Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla as the main plate with a tour of Andalusia hitting stops like Cadiz, Cordoba, Jerez de la frontera, first works of human cave art in the Nerja caves, Marbella...
    Bit more advanced because best parts of France are spread around its borders but fly to Paris for 3 days, daytrip to Versailles, then pick from:
    1. Rouen > Caen > Pontorson (so you can visit Mont Sant Michelle in the next morning) > Rennes
    2. Bordeaux > St Emilion > Dordogne River Tour > Perigeux
    3. Azure Coast/French Riviera
    4. Chambery > Annecy > Chamonix and Montblanc > Cheat and go to Geneva
    *If you take France, avoid Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse and really go see the small town/mid city charm.

    Take the time to plan it out, mostly transportation between spots and accomodations as most places will have a to-do list you can modify before flying and after arriving. As for where to stay, airbnb near the heart of your stop, that simple.
