Discovering Your Travel Style for a European Vacation

There are so many ways to travel in Europe, I'll help you find your travel style for your European vacation! After traveling to Europe many times (cruises, road trips, city visits, escorted tours and train travel!) I have the experience to guide you in the right direction for your next Europe trip! Europe is one of the most requested destinations from my clients and always fun to plan unique itineraries!

Cruise - If you enjoy cruising, want to unpack once for your trip, have a home base and see many areas in Europe then cruising is a great choice! There is an abundance of ship choices, ports to visit (from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean), length of cruises and ship sizes to choose from! Many of the cruises start and end in different cities - so pre and post trips are also a nice addition to your cruise vacation.

City Stays - If you're most interested in exploring one city (or area) and settling in a favorite hotel - then a stay in one city is best for you! During your city stay you'll have time to visit museums, experience the country's culture, and try local restaurants. It's also the perfect way to have a home base if you want to take day trips to nearby areas.

Self Drive Trips - Driving/navigating skills in a foreign country, deciphering non-English signs and having an adventurous spirit are all required for a self drive trip in Europe! This is the perfect way to get off the beaten path and experience Europe's small villages and country side.

Escorted Tours - Are you looking for a stress free vacation with all of the details taken care of for you? If so, an escorted tour should be your top choice! There are now escorted tours for every interest, age group, small or large group size and areas you'd like to see. Tours vary in length and speed of travel - there's truly a fit for everyone.

River Cruise - River cruises in Europe have exploded in popularity the past few years! If you enjoy ocean cruising and also want the ease of unpacking once for your trip - a river cruise is a terrific option! As with a self drive trip you'll experience the smaller villages and picturesque countryside. Most river cruises are one way, so a pre and post stay in different European cities is a great addition to your river cruise vacation.

Train Travel - Trains are a wonderful way to travel through Europe! Europe has a top notch train system to transport you with ease between cities. If you want to travel independently (but not drive on your own) and see different cities then this should be your choice! You can watch the beautiful scenery roll by as you relax on the train!

Villa Rentals - This is a wonderful option for large or extended families! Imagine your beautiful villa in the Italian countryside with private chef, grocery delivery, views of the wineries and your own pool! There are also options closer to cities and smaller villas for a romantic getaway. With my American Express affiliation I'll assure you of high quality villas offering great value!

Custom Trips - With Travel by Kris, the majority of Europe trips I plan for my clients are custom. They usually include many different components and the majority of the details are pre planned. Don't worry about trying to find a taxi when you arrive at the airport - a private driver or transfer will be waiting for you! Even if you're on a self drive trip - your hotels or inns will be waiting for your arrival. Your tour of the Colosseum or the Eiffel tower will be pre booked so you won't spend hours waiting in line! Your customized trip will be tailored to your travel wishes. 🙂

I look forward to assisting you with your Europe vacation! As always, I welcome any comments or feedback. 🙂

Until the next adventure - bon voyage!
