We are looking into doing a coach tour (which includes some train legs) next July for 11 days through Austria and Switzerland. This will be an absolute FIRST for us as all our travel has been independent travel either with hiring cars or using local train networks. As we are on as time budget for this trip, it seems to be the best way to cover this area in a shorter time frame. I would really appreciate any comments/reviews/ suggestions as I am not totally convinced we will cope with the less individualised and more crowded style of travel. Do the benefits outweigh these concerns? Is Globus a good company to deal with? What time in the mornings are the starts usually on this style of trip?
