Europe Vacations




At First Choice Travel and Cruise we have Destination Specialists who specialize in many different European destinations.  Not all of us know the ins and outs of every single country but ask for a specific country or a certain type of itinerary and I bet we have the right experienced travel professional for you.  For "On your own Europe Vacations", Escorted Europe trips, Europe Cruising or even European River Cruises contact a European Specialist at First Choice Travel for your next trip to Europe.


With over 30 years in business First Choice Travel and Cruise consultants know how important it is to use tried and true tour operators that we trust. Escorted and semi escorted (locally hosted tours) are really the best way to go when you leave the country and don't know the language.

Our FIT clients (Foreign Independent Travel) that like to travel on their own time still need help with packages for airfare, hotel, car or with rail in Europe, because we can get a whole package put together after we choose the right options for you. That is the correct rail passes, the seat reservations for high speed, and hotels. This is very important because we want all of our clients to get the most value for their money. All our Destination Specialists treat our clients just like we would arrange our own trips, (probably much better for our clients/guests). We like to give you lots of good options and we certainly will make suggestions to customize the trip to your own personal preferences! Our customers are the boss!

We will also call and email ahead to our favorite hotels and let them know when our clients will be arriving. We know which hotels to use in Paris for our France day trips, in London for longer stays and Italy for the multi stop lengthy vacations. Location and comfort is very important to our clients out of the country. We know who to call for buses, minivans and for short little side trips for sightseeing. We might love certain hotels in London-higher in price but some of them are in the best location for walking. We will offer you these types of options and let you make those type of decisions.

Hope your European trip is fun, memorable and exceeds your expectations-First Choice Travel and Cruise European Specialists!


HOT TIP FOR EUROPE: If you are spending the money to go to Europe, think of asking us about reserving a PRIVATE DRIVER AND GUIDE for you or your group while you are in Europe!!  Why not treat yourself?  It is more reasonable than you think.  It is worth every penny having us book a PRIVATE Guided Tour, private transfers or special custom tours!!  



Europe is very popular for families, singles, couples and generational travel!  Gayle Zielke, president of First Choice Travel and Crusie has taken her daughters and the grandkids on a cruise from Athens, Greece, all over Greece, Italy and ending in Barcelona, Spain.  If you think this was educational for all of us, you are right and the time together was totally worth it!  The memories we made were priceless and the fun was contagious!


Why take an Escorted or partially escorted tour?  

1. Usually a tried and true group is less expensive per day than doing it on your own.

2. Almost all your meals and sightseeing tours are included....and no long HOTlines to wait in for your tours.

3. Someone else does the driving, so you get to relax and enjoy the sights.

4. Get an up close and personal insight on the area, hear all the great historical stories and see exclusive sights from a local expert!

5.  Meet some new friends from all over the world. save some $$ and choose the escorted or semi escorted tour that works best for you.  Choose from smaller tours, private tours, more busy or active tours, semi independent tours, wine and food tours, younger guest tours, family tours, gentle pace to lively pace, Speciality tours, etc.  The list can go on.
