Seeing the major attractions in Europe is undoubtedly one of the reasons you want to visit Europe in the first place…
Be ready…you’ve got a lot of choices to explore. You can “do” it by car, train, boat, coach, on foot, on a bike or on a segway…
Let’s SIMPLIFY it so you can decide your best options quickly.
Guided, Hop On – Hop Off or on your own?
If you’re a first timer to a European city I'm guessing you want to include guided city tours and excursions. You see a lot in a short time, and you don’t have to drive a car or take public transportation. Enjoy a new city and let somebody else do the work.
Have you already been to that city? Maybe this time you want to do it on your own or take one of the popular Hop On – Hop Off tours.
They include transportation - and either a guide or a taped commentary - to all the attractions. Special pre-paid-and-no-queing-passes cut down on the waiting time, so…you can see a lot more in a few days.

Take a Walk, Bike, Segway, Boat or hire your private guide…
You have several other options for sightseeing in Europe. Think about a Seine River boat-ride in Paris or a cruise through the canals in Amsterdam. Or have fun joining a guided walking tour, bike ride or segway trip. Some guided walks are even free but see important notes here.
If you want to see a lot of a city/area in a short time, hiring your own private guide is probably better than booking a guided trip.
You can book driver-guides for half-day, day, and multi-day trips.
Read the special hints before you book. They save you time and money.

Are short multi-day tours for you? They’re popular with many travelers … Why…?
If you prefer to see more of a country than just the capital cities, I’d recommend one of the many short multi-day tours. Most last from two to five days; others are one to two weeks.
They’re perfect if you want somebody else to do the work because they save you a lot of driving and hunting for accommodations along the way.
All you do is enjoy it…
