Next summer I'll be 16 and my cousin will be 18. We are interested in a tour group about 2 weeks long that's traveling through general Europe. It's difficult finding a travel group that will allow us to go. Are there any reliable and cheap tour groups that we will be allowed to participate in?
Most commerical tours require minors to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. It is due in part to liability reasons. And in part to discipline issues, since a tour guide can not discipline a minor, so they need a guardian onhand to effect control or take the minor off the tour.
