DAY 01

Munich

The first day of the tour is our arrivals day. Meet your fellow travellers, and depending on what time you arrive, head into Munich and see the sights ahead of the start of your tour.

Along with modern high-powered industry, designer shopping districts and sleek BMWs, you’ll find a wealth of cultural hotspots in Munich. Even with all its smart sophistication, Munich has a certain charm that visitors find irresistible. Tonight meet your fellow explorers and get to know them over a stein as we take you to a traditional German beer hall for dinner and to get a taste of German culture. Prost!

DAY 02

Munich - Ljubljana

Heading for the Slovenian capital, we stop at Salzburg on the way for a comfort stop. Featuring gorgeous architecture, a formidable cliff-top fortress and imposing cliffs in the distance, you could be forgiven for thinking that you were in a fairy-tale. This was also Mozart’s home-town – see if a little of the genius rubs off! We also stop at Lake Bled for a photo stop. The lake is situated in the Julian Alps and surrounds Bled Island in the middle of the lake and is overlooked by the medieval Bled Castle on the north shore. On arrival in Ljubljana, we’ll have a walking tour of this little gem of a city. Despite its small size, you’re sure to be entranced by the beauty of this city, which features a wealth of cultures, activities and sights.

DAY 7

Sarajevo - Belgrade

Saying goodbye to Sarajevo, we make our way to the Serbian capital of Belgrade and an orientation tour of the city.

Then maybe catch the sunset with an evening stroll along the Danube.

DAY 10

Budapest - Vienna

Leaving Budapest behind, we head for the grandeur of Vienna, stopping for a comfort stop in Bratislava (Slovakia). On arrival in Vienna we’ll take a driving tour of the city – which ranks as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Few cities can show off such cultural and historical splendour and maintain a profile as an exciting, modern city, but Vienna does it well. Along with a musical past that includes luminaries like Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms, and artworks by masters like Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka, Vienna has a buzzing modern culinary scene, cheerful, bustling pubs and bars, and a host of clubs and music venues in which to dance the night away.

Breakfast, dinner. Overnight accommodation.

DAY 11

Vienna - Prague

On the way to Prague today, we will be visiting Mauthausen concentration camp, where we’ll learn about a darker chapter in Europe’s history. A labour camp during the Second World War, this was where hundreds of thousands of political prisoners lost their lives. We’ll also take a comfort stop in Český Krumlov. Blessed with a spectacular castle and a wealth of Renaissance and Baroque architecture, Český Krumlov is often thought of as a sort of mini-Prague. On arrival in Prague, we’ll take a walking tour of this incredible city, which since freeing itself from communism has joined other European jewels like Paris, Rome and Amsterdam to take its place as one of Europe’s most fascinating destinations. Famous for its art, architecture, cobbled lanes and ancient chapels, this is also home to some of Europe’s finest beer. Your local tour guide will proudly escort you through the historic streets, pointing out the features of the ‘Old Town’, Primatial Palace, Slovak National Theatre and the Main Square. For dinner experience authentic Czech cuisine at our local restaurant on your first night in Prague.

DAY 12

Today take the time to explore, perhaps revisiting some of the sights you saw on your walking tour. Sample the local cuisine (including the much-lauded and hugely varied beers), visit art galleries, admire the weird and witty sculpture that adorns the city’s public spaces, and marvel at the soaring gothic and baroque architecture. Highlights of the day might include the majestic Prague Castle, the famous Charles Bridge (you need to also see the views from the bridge at night - simply stunning...), the ‘Old Town’ and the Jewish Quarter. The Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Square is a ‘must see’ - the intricate puppetry and show which is performed on the hour, draws hundreds of people throughout the day and night. For those who wish to put your stamp on the city, why not visit legendary Lennon wall - a tribute to John Lennon and words of peace, which is added to on a daily basis by the thousands of visitors to the city.

Breakfast, overnight accommodation.
