It's really quite amazing how much culture and scenery Europe manages to cram into its modest borders. Backpacker tours in Europe range from rambling bus journeys that include as many as 10 different countries or more, to single day city tours in iconic metropolises like Rome, Paris and Madrid.
The great thing about taking a tour in Europe is that you don't have to pay for a ticket for the other side of the world and then sit on a plane for 36 hours before you can start having fun. Many tours depart from London, meaning the fun begins almost immediately!
You can choose from an enormous range of experiences, including historical excursions in Turkey, island hopping in Ibiza and cultural experiences in places like France, Italy and Spain. And don't even get us started on the festivals…!
