Europe is a Bigger Bargain with TourCrafters’ Discounts


Libertyville, IL, April 23, 2015—With a strong dollar and weak euro  everything in Europe is a bargain this year.  But TourCrafters, the perennially--popular tour operator known for good-deal packages, has gone a step further.  They’re offering a discount of 7% on top of packages and tours that  already cost close to 15% less than last year. 


For example, their 11-day Rome, Florence & Venice by Train package, listed at $1,969, will actually cost only $1,831.  The package offers hotel and sightseeing in all three cities plus excursions to Siena, San Gimignano, Chianti and the Cinque Terre, and a Tuscan cooking class.  The Sicily package, which includes three nights in a 4-star hotel in the charming resort Taormina and four in the capital Palermo, also provides several meals, a cooking class, a wine-tasting and sightseeing in an air-conditioned motorcoach.  The $1,503 price has been discounted to $1,398.


Wine enthusiasts will appreciate the Paris & Burgundy package which includes four nights in a 4-star hotel and sightseeing in Paris, four nights in Beaune, a car rental and tours of the vineyards and villages of Burgundy’s celebrated Côte d’Or. The $1,579 price has been cut to $1,468.  A Paris & French Riviera package that offers four nights in Paris and four in Nice in 4-star hotels, plus a self-drive car, will cost $1,562 instead of $1,680.


The 6-day $1,010 Athens & Greek Cruise will actually cost $939.  After two nights in Athens, the cruise visits the Greek islands of Mykonos, Samos and Milos as well as Kusadasi, the Turkish resort that’s also the port for ancient Ephesus.  And a Barcelona & Ibiza package for $1,069 that has been discounted to $995 includes three nights in Spain’s most popular city plus four nights on Spain’s hottest island and celebrity hangout.
