Vacationing in Europe is already expensive with the Euro and with the rise in fuel prices renting a car makes it even more difficult to afford. New tour operators are now marketing different types of vacations that are not only much more affordable, but more fun as well. Stay away from the tourist traps and explore the local country. Gemma Bowes of The Guardian did just that by taking a tour of the mountains just north of Madrid, Spain in a Vespa thanks to a new tour offered by two Spanish brothers.
