The Best Highlight Tours of Europe

Europe is an exciting continent full of history, world class cuisine, culture and remarkable landscapes. It’s one of those destinations that many people strive to check off their bucket list. But, choosing just one small area of the continent to travel in is nearly impossible. If you’ve made it all the way across the ocean, you may as well visit a few countries rather than limiting yourself to just Italy, France or England. For this reason, many tour companies run European tours that show you the highlights.

And it’s a good thing they did! Otherwise, sorting out the logistics for a tour that takes you across Europe would be quite a challenge. Luckily there are many wonderful highlight tours of Europe that allow you to see the best the continent has to offer.

At FarCloser Travel, we help you figure out which highlight tours will suit you best so that you can make the most of your trip across the big pond. As with any classic tour, there are always unique ways to do it. Here are some of our favourite highlights tours, some classics and some with a twist, offered by our travel partners:
