Start tour in Munich

Welcome to Munich! Meet up with your tour leader in the morning at the hotel before heading out on an orientation tour of the city. Munich as a city exhibits both prosperity and a certain amount of comfort and cosiness. Munich’s apparent contradictions will delight the avid explorer. 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, join your tour leader and fellow travellers at a traditional German beer hall to get a taste of German culture and cuisine. Prost!


Salzburg - Lake Bled - Ljubljana

Heading for the Slovenian capital, stop in Salzburg, Austria, on the way. Featuring gorgeous architecture, a formidable cliff-top fortress and imposing cliffs in the distance, visiting Salzburg feels like stepping into a fairy tale! This was also Mozart’s hometown – see if a little of the genius rubs off!

Next, stop at Lake Bled in Slovenia for a photo stop. Admire the views of Bled Island, medieval Bled Castle and the Julain Alps! On arrival in Ljubljana, embark on a walking tour of this gem of a city. Despite its small size, you’re sure to be entranced by the beauty of Ljubljana, which features a wealth of cultures, activities and sights. Ljubljana Castle overlooks the city, and dates back many centuries.


Plitvice Lakes - Split Region

Today, you will be treated to some of the most picturesque natural landscapes in the whole of Europe as we’re off to Croatia, visiting the world-famous Plitvice Lakes National Park. Stroll along the boardwalks and marvel at the incredible natural scenery of Croatia’s largest national park. Filled with waterfalls, lush vegetation and countless lakes, this is one of the most beautiful stops on the tour, so keep your cameras handy! Once we’ve got a full camera-load of shots, we'll head to our hotel in a beach resort near Split, for an included dinner and relaxing evening.


Split - Dubrovnik

Today the tour travels on to Dubrovnik. On the way, enjoy a visit to Split on the Dalmatian coast. Here, stroll around the historic old town and see the sprawling Diocletian’s Palace complex. Later, arrive in Dubrovnik and set off on a guided tour of the city with an expert local guide. Become acquainted with this stunning walled city, which has a maritime history dating back to the Middle Ages. Dubrovnik is a tapestry of spectacular architecture - including churches, monasteries, fountains and museums. Learn about the city’s history, stroll the marble streets, take a walk along the ancient city walls or try one of the many charming restaurants. Get an idea of what you’d like to explore on the free day tomorrow!


Dubrovnik: Free Day

Explore Dubrovnik further today. With most of the main attractions located within the city walls in the ‘old town’, it is very easy to plan your day and navigate the streets. Want the best views of the ‘old town’ and islands? Catch the cable car to the top of Mount Srd! It is highly recommended for a scenic sunset photo or two. For those who really want to explore further afield, choose our optional excursion to Montenegro. Take a full day to experience one of Europe’s lesser-visited gems. Discover the natural beauty and rich history as we drive through charming countryside to the UNESCO Heritage-listed town of Kotor. This day trip also includes photo stops at Verige and Perast, and a stop at the picturesque coastal town of Budva.


Mostar - Sarajevo

Leaving Dubrovnik behind, travel onwards to Sarajevo, stopping on the way in the enchanting Balkan town of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar is a beautiful and historical destination, which offers a splattering of numerous religious buildings and churches, and a vast collection of Roman, Greek, Croatian and Ottoman influences.

Sarajevo is the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and has returned from the brink of destruction in the 90s, becoming famed for its East-meets-West atmosphere. Learn all about the city’s troubled past in a walking tour of this fascinating city later today.


Sarajevo - Belgrade

Saying goodbye to Sarajevo, we make our way to the Serbian capital of Belgrade. We will enjoy a tour of the city with a local guide, who will introduce us to the city's highlights, including Republic Square, Kalemegdan park and Belgrade fortress. A fascinating place, Belgrade radiates gritty exuberance in its many architectural contrasts with socialist blocks set amongst more grandiose buildings. After the walking tour we'll enjoy an included dinner, before free time to explore the city.


Belgrade - Hungarian Horse Farm - Budapest

Travel to Hungary today, and make a stop at a farm in the traditional homeland of the Hungarian horse lords. Watch a traditional horse show where the locals demonstrate their equestrian skills. Here, choose to try delicious Hungarian goulash, a rich and hearty beef stew, at an optional lunch hosted by the farm. Next, travel onwards to Budapest. With a mix of natural beauty and art nouveau architecture, this is a city to behold! Embark on an evening driving tour to get an overview of the city. Travel across the mighty Danube and make a stop at the Fisherman’s Bastion for spectacular views across the river to the Parliament Building and St Stephen’s basilica. Take note of all the spots to revisit tomorrow on your free day!


Budapest: Free Day

With traces of the past evident in the interesting and unusual details, this is your chance to get up close and personal with Budapest. Look out for remnants of the conflicts of WWII and the uprising of 1956, try Hungarian cuisine (so much more to it than just goulash), sample world-renowned wines, and soak your weary rambler’s bones in one of the city’s bath-houses.

Bath houses are something that Budapest has been known for since the Roman times, with some 123 thermal and 400 mineral springs from 14 different sources. Then, maybe catch the sunset with an evening stroll along the Danube.

DAY 10

Bratislava - Vienna

The grandeur of Vienna is calling today! Along the way, stop off in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Embark on an orientation tour with your tour leader to see some of the main sights, including a photo stop at Bratislava Castle, which overlooks the city. On arrival in Vienna, take a driving tour of the city. Vienna boasts cultural and historical splendour while maintaining a profile as an exciting, modern city!

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, and vibrant live music venues. Look forward to dinner in a special location tonight during a group meal in a Viennese wine cellar.

DAY 11

Mauthausen - Cesky Krumlov - Prague

Today it’s time to travel to the Czech Republic. En route, the group will learn about a dark chapter of Europe’s history during a visit to Mauthausen concentration camp. Afterwards, travels onwards to Český Krumlov in the Czech Republic for a comfort stop. This picturesque city is blessed with a spectacular castle and a wealth of Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Arrive in Prague later today and take a guided walking tour of the city. Famous for its art, architecture, cobbled lanes and ancient chapels, this city is also home to some of Europe’s finest beer. See highlights such as the ‘Old Town’, Primatial Palace, Slovak National Theatre and the Main Square. For dinner, experience authentic Czech cuisine at a local restaurant on your first night in Prague.

DAY 12

Prague: Free Day

Today, take the time to explore Prague, perhaps revisiting some of the sights from yesterday’s walking tour. Walk across Charles Bridge, leave your mark on the John Lennon wall, sample the local cuisine (including the much-lauded and hugely varied beers), visit art galleries, admire the weird and witty sculptures that adorn the city’s public spaces, and marvel at the soaring gothic and baroque architecture. The Prague+ excursion is a great way to get to know the city - visit top attractions including Prague Castle and the Malá Strana neighbourhood, and enjoy a lunch cruise along the Vltava River. For an exciting night filled with great food and entertainment, join the Traditional Czech Folk Music & Dance evening optional!

DAY 13

Nuremberg - Munich

On our way back to Munich, we take a comfort stop in Nuremberg. Bavaria’s second-largest city, you’ll find incredible architecture here, painstakingly restored using original stone after the bombings of the Second World War. Your last night of the tour sees you back in Munich for you to enjoy as you see fit. Relax in your hotel, get together with your new-found friends from the tour for a farewell dinner, or maybe revisit one of the beer halls that welcomed you so warmly at the beginning of your adventure.

DAY 14

End of tour in Munich

After two weeks spent seeing incredible destinations in Croatia and several eastern European countries, the tour concludes today after breakfast. Don’t forget to swap details with your fellow travellers before setting off on your onward journey!

More about Austria

Officially known as the Republic of Austria, there's a lot more to discover about this landlocked European country than schnitzel, strudel and the Sound of Music, but that's still part of the fun. Bordered by the Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, you can understand why Austria is so culturally rich. There are a couple of things you might not know about Austrians, like they are the top recyclers in the world, they love their coffee and enjoy a rich coffee house culture, plus, much like Mexico, they celebrate death and there's even a funeral museum in Vienna. From fine arts to classical music and historic monuments, there's much to experience in Austria!

More about Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is located right in the middle of Europe. Traditionally it was segmented into three lands,Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia in the south, and since 2016 it adopted the shortened name of Czechia. It ranks amongst the top ten safest countries in the world to live and happens to have the most castles in Europe. In fact, in the capital city of Prague you'll find the largest ancient castle in the world. Once the seat of power for kings and emperors, today Prague Castle is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic.

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 Hungary

The landlocked country of Hungary shares its borders with Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. The capital of Budapest is a great city to explore, with its medieval Castle Hill, Fisherman's Bastion and impressive Parliament Building. It's split by the Danube River and many European river cruises either start of end in Budapest. And if you're wondering, Hungarian goulash really is from Hungary. The tasty soup made from beef and vegetables and flavoured with paprika is known locally as Gulyásleves (gulyás is herdsman and leves is soup in Hungarian); because it originates from a dish cooked by the cattlemen of the Great Hungarian Plain.

More about Slovenia

What a perfect way to explore Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic in two weeks. This coach tour of Europe is already great value, with experienced guides and so many highlights, but this travel deal gets even better with Early Bird Deals!
