Suggestions for Comparable tour to ABD - France?

Hi All!

My husband just got his R&R dates for this tour which will be May 1- May 15 2012. We'd love to do Paris France, but 1) Disney doesn't list any tours that early and 2) frankly $4-5k per person is a bit out of our reach, we could manage $3-3.25k each... probably.

I do realize this board is dedicated to ABD, but I figure you all would know best who 2nd best is.

Any suggestion or advice to be had? I'd greatly appreciate it!

M

Come post on the ABD Board:

http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=146

Several people there have traveled with other companies as well as ABD, and can give you some good information on alternatives.

I'm not a mod on this board, so I can't do that. But I'll see you on the ABD Board.

Alternative tour companies

I have travelled with Intrepid Travel a number of times - not in Europe but in South America and Asia. I have done 6 (or 7) trips with them.

Small group adventure, with very strong environmental and social policies. http://www.intrepidtravel.com

This is definitely not 5 star, but clean, comfortable places and you will really see the place you are visiting - they usually stay in guest houses or small family run hotels.

Try flying solo, that is what we did. We researched everything we wanted to see/do and and used their subway system to get around. Book our flights and hotel seperately and arranged a transfer service from the airport to the city.

Doing things this way made it feel more like an adventure, we were out on our own! Plus it worked out a fair bit cheaper then an organised tour.

But I live in the UK, so getting there/back is a lot easier/cheaper then from the US.
