Has anyone done or know of someone who has done a Rick Steve's tour of Europe?

I have to say I really considered it.
BUT ... the idea of DD getting on a bus every day isnt actually my idea of a holiday.
Europe is actually super easy to do on your own. Pick a few destinations (minimum 3 nights anywhere) and arrange day tours in the places where you cant do 'selfie' type tours.
I have extensively researched some of these places - and been to some with a kid in tow - so am happy to help you
Rick Steves (the website) is fantastic ... and a lot of his stuff like the downloadable audioguides for places are great.
Last time around we went to France and Italy - and did a cruise. I didnt use a travel agent, booked everything myself on the net ... and it was fantastic. DD LOVED it because we could go at our own pace, spend more time doing the things we particularly wanted to do and not bother with stuff that didnt really interest us.
We are going again - this time Italy and Switzerland - and again arranging myself.
where in Europe are you looking at going?

Thanks for your advice.
I am taking ds on my own because I don't think any family or friends are up for a holiday at the moment lol. I also have taken ds on one holiday for the first leg and it was sooo boring with no adult company . I just don't think I want to go all that way with just the two of us. I would really feel happier in a tour group. Probably looking at France, Italy and maybe Greece.

maybe then a tour for a while and then do some parts on your own.
So maybe fly to Paris, spend a few days .. then do a Tour from Paris to Italy ... then spend some time at the other end in Florence or Rome.
Otherwise - a cruise is great for both kids and adults .. on your own is fine, and good for some of those countries.
