I loved it! I would definitely recommend the eastern link. I did a 15 day tour before that as well, classic europe. I enjoyed both for different reasons, the people on the tour make a difference as well. I enjoyed the atmosphere of my second tour more so than the first and just some of the cities and history was more fascinating in the eastern link tour. I had a great time and want to go back to several places we visited. You only spend one or two nights in each place so you only get a taste of what its like really. You have people joining and leaving throughout the trip, we were down to about 30 but up to about 47 at the fullest for about a week. Yet on my first trip there was 38 of us i think and a few of us left that tour in Rome and there would have been people join it. You won't regret it! I loved it!
