More about England

More about Europe

More about France

France is one of the oldest nations on earth, the largest in the EU and also the most popular with tourists. People flock to its iconic sites, medieval cities, alpine mountains and Mediterranean beaches. It's a must to visit the amazing art galleries and museums of Paris, but make sure you allow time for people watching in a chic cafe. Visit the French Riviera to see how the rich and famous live, or take the world's highest cable car to get a breathtaking view of Mont Blanc. Try some of the 1600 varieties of cheese produced in France, but don't turn the accompanying baguette upside down, the French believe that brings bad luck!

More about Germany

Germany is one of the most densely populated counties in the world, but it doesn't feel that way thanks to its forested mountains, magnificent rivers and well-planned cities. Berlin is a vibrant capital with a lively art scene and cafe culture. Munich is renowned for its annual Oktoberfest beer festival and Frankfurt is a fascinating blend of historic buildings and modern skyscrapers. Cruising the mighty Danube River you'll experience the charm of regional villages and rich culture of cities like Cologne and Nuremberg. There's so much to discover about this country that has its own strong personality as well as influences from its nine neighbouring countries.

More about Italy

What's not to love about Italy! From its ancient monuments and treasure-laden museums, to iconic cities, stunning coastal villages and magnificent mountain ranges. And of course the cuisine! You could literally eat your way from Rome to Florence and Venice. Gelato ice cream was invented in Italy and there are over 200 shapes for Italian pasta. Pizza was first created in Napoli in 1860 and yes, calzone is simply folded up pizza!

More about Netherlands

Think of the Netherlands and immediately tulips, windmills and canal cruises in Amsterdam spring to mind. All this is true, and even more delightful in real life! The capital of Amsterdam is home to the impressive Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. It's a great city to explore by bike, thanks to the extensive bike paths and lack of hills, and for a truly local experience you can try herring from a food cart vendor, but you might want to wash it down with a beer at a historic brewery. Also, if you're wondering whether you should call it 'the Netherlands' or 'Holland', the Netherlands covers the country's 12 provinces, and Holland is an area that consists of two provinces. In January 2020 the Dutch government officially dropped the nickname ‘Holland’ and now refers to itself as The Netherlands.

More about Switzerland

The land of alpine peaks, cuckoo clocks, army knives, cheese and chocolate - Switzerland has so many recognisable characteristics but it's only when you visit that you really discover the wonders of this small nation. For starters, the multi-cultural country has four official languages and of those, German is most commonly spoken. Fondue wasn't just a fad of the 70's here and it's a must to try to rich, gooey and cheesy Swiss national dish. Exploring the mountain ranges is another must-do, but you don't necessarily have to don your hiking boots. You can board Europe's highest railway in Interlaken or take the world's highest cable car to Zermatt for breathtaking mountain views.
This perfectly planned coach tour is the ideal way to see more of Europe and tick off all the highlights. Travel through England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium on an exciting journey, then extend the holiday with a London city stay to explore at your leisure. Flights are included from Australia, but if you don't need the airfare, just let us know. Now's the time to start thinking about the first big overseas trip in a few years, because until 31 October 2021 you can book with only $100 per person deposit and SAVE 10%!
