This summer my family and I went for a Euro Tour!! The tour was actually unexpected, we actually were going to visit our aunt in England but then we ended up filing the German Schegen visa forms and ended up going on a Euro tour! Our tour was organized by the Taj Tours, a UK based Indian tour. The name of our tour was ‘The European Splendor’. I would definitely recommend this tour to all the Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis planning to for a Euro tour. If you want the contact them the website is http://www.tajtours.co.uk/.
The tour started off by going to Düsseldorf, Germany (we actually joined our tour from Brussels). First we took an Emirates flight to Dubai were literally the world lives, unfortunately we only got an hour stay at the airport, but it was amazing! Arriving at Düsseldorf we were welcomed by my dad’s friend. The airport was very huge and nice!
Soon we drived to our hotel and checked into the ibis hotel, the hotel have great service and are at the best location (near a train station)http://www.ibishotel.com.In the evening we had dinner with my dad’s friend’s family at an Indian restaurant. Next day we took train tickets for Brussels, Belgium. In our travel through train we had a stop for 45 min at Köln were we rushed to see the great Colonel cathedral.

! Pisa, here we come! After Rome we went to see the amazing Leaning Tower of Pisa and also the field of miracles. After Pisa we entered France and went to see a French perfumery Fragonard! And then visited the beautiful beach of Cannes! From Cannes we went to the one the only Paris! When we arrived to Paris it was night time so we went on another excursion Paris by Night tour! We saw the lightened Eifel tower at night other great monuments!!! Lastly had a ride on a boat that showed all the great monuments of Paris through the river where we also saw the small model of the statue of liberty!

Then we went to see various other monuments such as the plastala conqured, the famous avenue of sahnza lizae, the Arc De Triomphe and many others! Next we went on the first and second floor of Eifel tower were we experienced cold winds and spectacular view!

Coming down from Eifel tower was the end of the journey with our tour as they had to go back to UK but we had to leave them at Paris. Saying goodbye to all the friends we made in these ten days!!! I would always remember them Priti, Ishan, Kushal, many more and how can I forget my tour guide Roshan! She was the best! After separating from them we took a taxi to our hotel novotel! We were so much tired that we had a good night sleep (next day 3 o clock we had our flight back to Karachi, Pakistan). Next morning we woke up around 9 o clock and went out for a walk! Came back around 12 o clock checked out, got in a cab and went to Charles de guale airport saying bye to Europe!!! The best trip of my life!!
Other things in our journey, our cooks that made delicious food for all of us and through this tour I also found out a lot about Indian cuisine!

Unlucky factor for us was that whenever we arrived at a hotel the time was 6 o clock and by then all the shops had been closed and whenever we went to a shopping place it used to be Saturday and Sunday so…. All shops CLOSED! And the only shopping I could do were souvenir shopping! And I saved it all for Paris and when we reached Paris it was Saturday and Sunday!!! I saw a LV store and it was on sale the bag I wanted ‘Never full’ was available at a cheap price but ….. The Shop was closed because it was Sunday! Even though I tried next day on Monday still it was closed unlucky meh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just got to do little accessories shopping at a small store that was open on Monday morning!
