Grand European Tours has been taking Americans to Europe for over 30 years and has developed quite the knack for tailoring their tours to fit the needs and desires of the newly retired generation. According to Grand European Tours, the most popular trends among Boomers include tours that offer enhanced cultural exploration of a specific country, tours that help travelers to learn more about the country their ancestors were from, and tours that incorporate many generations of a family and help to bring them closer together.

Several of their tours offer hands-on, in-depth experiences which make a trip unique and unforgettable. Experiences include lectures with local historians on topics such as the D-Day landings, learning how to make papyrus paper in Egypt, and also enjoying a home-hosted meal with a local family in the region you are visiting.

Family histories have become a national obsession over the last few years, with more and more people finding and preserving their genealogy using new resources on the Internet. Many travelers are also making a trip out of discovering their roots, exploring the cities of their family's history and digging up records of their ancestors.

Another travel trend that looks toward preserving the future, with a unique way to strengthen family ties, even with the youngest generation, is to take a family trip. More and more grandparents are planning trips with their grandchildren as a way to contribute to their grandchild's education and broaden their horizons. Multi-generational trips are also fast becoming popular among families.

Whatever your tastes, Grand European Tours, an AARP Preferred Travel Provider, is sure to offer a tour that will fit your needs. Taking a tour also offers an opportunity to travel with others who have similar interests and gives you a chance to meet new friends. Plus, you don't have to worry about the hassles of reservations and transfers, as almost everything is handled for you.
