About Us - Touropa | Tour Europe, Your Way

Touropa - Europe, Your Way


A collaboration between Sun Island Tours and Europamundo Vacations, Touropa offers travellers a brand new and flexible way of coach touring in Europe. This partnership between two highly experienced and well-respected tour operators ensures travellers experience the best of both worlds – i.e. the convenience of escorted tours and the independence of FIT travel.

In addition, travellers can look forward to many other benefits with Touropa:

  • All our tours operate in English only and departures are guaranteed. Once a booking is confirmed, it will proceed as planned with no risk of cancellations due to the lack of numbers.
  • You will have access to the largest range of coach tours throughout Europe, with more than 77,000 departures every year.
  • Most of our tours are flexible and can be customized in a few ways.
    • You can choose to start and/or end your tour on any day or location on the itinerary;
    • You can start a circular tour (one which returns to where it begins) midway through the itinerary and finish at any point along the subsequent departure.
    • You can take a break during your tour to stop at any destination point before continuing on the next scheduled departure date.

Due to the hop-on/hop-off flexible nature of these tours, you can experience destinations at your pace, with a range of different like-minded travellers, and with the best local guides and drivers for each city.

All of our tours and products have been developed with Australian and New Zealand travellers in mind. There is no age limit, so we welcome travellers of all ages.
