My wife and I are researching a 10 day trip to Europe next summer. Trying to decide if a tour vis Edelwiess "Best of Europe" make sense or could we save a lot of money and rent a bike and plan our own trip. Their is 7 days riding includes two meals, lodging,bike rental, insurance, tour guide, and chase van for hauling luggage. Sounds pretty easy and we do not speak German, French so the guide sounds helpful. It will be $8000 for both of us and wanted to research some options. Has any one taken one of Edelwiess tours and can offer feedback on the tour? Or if you have traveled on your own by renting a bike how did it work out? We traveled to Ireland 5 years ago and used Rick Steve's book for rooms and places to visit and was very happy with our trip. Being on a bike will make it more of an adventure so we are really excited about a trip next year.
