    Sorry, can't help you there. But I hear Bangkok is a lot of fun, if you're single.

    Which parts of the UK?

    I obviously can't give any ideas on agencies, but if you plan on visiting Italy - go to Venice. The most beautiful city I've ever visited so far. If you go to France prepare for a strike back. Imagine yourself being a French in the US and make a reverse action - they don't like English speakers. If you go to Disneyland though it wouldn't matter (and it's good for kids). On Germany - it's cool just to visit the country, no matter which part. Apart from obviously Berlin I've been to two more cities, and the whole atmosphere is so strikingly different from any other country it's just amazing! Hard to describe it, maybe out German Linkers would say it for me.

    Which parts of the UK ?

    Not sure as of yet... Probably the usual tourist trap places...

    As far as French people in the US, don't fall for the typical stereotype of Americans being rude in return... I tend to feel we're generally a nation of good people willing to lend a helping hand to someone needing help finding their way in a foreign land regardless of thei nationality...

    Anyhow right now I'm eyeballing this;

    The frogs were cool w/ me when I was there last year, but London is super
    cool to see and is a great starting point to see Paris (just a jump through the
    chunnel), in to Holland, Germany, Prague, etc. Whenever I've looked for
    my own flights, they are always cheaper into London as anywhere else.
    And with the rail passes you can get, it can be a smart way to travel with the
    kids through Europe. But it depends on where your interest is...
    I never made it past Amsterdam, my damn self.

    I want to recommend vacationstogo.com The wife and I used them for our honeymoon last year and they were very reputable. Click on the group tour link (I think ).
