Summary of The Day: Welcome to the Europe Highlights tour! Leaving London, we cross the English Channel and head for the French capital, known the world over as a city of romance and style. Arriving in Paris in the afternoon, we’ll take a driving tour of the city led by your tour leader. Look out for famous sights like L’Opéra Garnier, Tuileries Gardens, Place de la Concorde, Hotel de Ville, the River Seine, Ile de la Cite and the Louvre Museum. You'll also get a glimpse of that most famous avenue, the Champs Elysees, overlooked by the famous Arc de Triomphe. Tomorrow is a free day, so take note of all the interesting places you’d like to see! After checking in to our hotel, we'll head out for dinner in the artists' district of Montmartre.
The menu includes classic French cuisine like chicken with creamy Dauphinoise potatoes and beef bourguignon (a stew made with red wine). A vegetarian dish is also offered.
Summary of The Day: Take the day to explore Paris your own way. From the historical attractions, charming boutiques, boulevards and cafes to the world-famous museums and galleries, Paris has something for everyone. There’s the option of a cruise up the Seine River to the Eiffel Tower, and a visit to Montparnasse for an incredible view of the city. Alternatively, see world famous artworks at the Louvre, head to the extraordinary palace of Versailles, or go to Disneyland for the day. Alternatively, why not head to the boutiques of La Marais? Or visit the graves of Oscar Wilde and Jim Morrison at Père Lachaise Cemetery? Those with a taste for the macabre can even descend to the infamous catacombs! Alternatively, stay above ground and explore the museums, people-watch from a roadside café, or simply stroll the city, following in the footsteps of great painters, musicians and writers.
Summary of The Day: Today we have an early start as we make our way to the Swiss Alps, aiming to arrive by late afternoon. Tonight we'll be staying in a typical mountain village in the heart of the Jungfrau region. One of the most visited places in the Alps, it is also a World Heritage site. Take in the gorgeous scenery as we drive through the Swiss countryside – it’s famous for a reason!
While in the Swiss Alps, you will have the option to try a classic dish - cheese fondue. Melted cheese is served in a communal pot (caquelon or fondue pot) over a candle, and eaten by dipping bread into the cheese.
Summary of The Day: The day is yours to enjoy the majesty of the Swiss Alps. Be sure to book a spot on the optional excursion to Jungfraujoch (own expense), the highest train station in Europe, where you’ll also find a visitor's center, lookout point and weather station. The views are simply breathtaking all the way up – don't be surprised to find yourself pressed up against the train window! Once you're at the top, take a look at the utterly enormous glacier and enjoy the year-round snowy conditions. This is one trip that you won't forget anytime soon; guaranteed to put your head in the clouds in every way possible!
Summary of The Day: We're off to Italy! Enjoy more breath-taking mountain views as we drive through Switzerland and on to the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa!

Famous for its stunning countryside, fine food and wine, Tuscany is guaranteed to enthrall.
Summary of The Day: This morning we leave our accommodation in Tuscany and make for the famous city of Florence for a guided walking tour. Learn about the legacy of the Medicis and see the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, featuring Michelangelo’s ‘David’. This is the cradle of Renaissance culture – soak it all in while you can! Then it's 'Buon giorno Venice!' Venice is known as one of the world's most romantic cities. Spread across 118 islands, you'll spend the afternoon discovering why this is such a 'must-see' destination, with more art-works per square kilometre than anywhere else on earth! See the famous Rialto Bridge, St Mark's Square, the Bridge of Sighs and the Doge's Palace. Afterwards, sip an espresso, enjoy a cruise along the canals on a gondola or relax and watch the world go by in one of the many piazzas.
Summary of The Day: We continue on to Munich, the Bavarian capital, arriving in the late afternoon for an orientation tour of the city. A city that 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 hot-spots in Munich. Even with all its smart sophistication, Munich has a certain charm that visitors find irresistible. This evening, enjoy a beer in one of Munich’s traditional beer halls before dinner – a great way to round off the day. Prost!
Tonight you will enjoy dinner in a traditional beerhall. Dishes include typical German favorites, such as a sausages with sauerkraut, chicken with potato salad, and potato dumplings with sauerkraut (vegetarian option).
Summary of The Day: Leaving our hotel, we will soon be in the Rhine Valley, where we board a Rhine Valley river boat and enjoy a refreshing beverage on our complimentary cruise. Sail down the Rhine River to your hotel from St Goar to Boppard, enjoying the view as you go. This historic area boasts numerous castles, cliffs, vineyards and medieval German towns. Tonight, after a tasty German dinner, why not take a relaxing stroll along the river or enjoy the hospitality of the locals?
German food is typically unfussy and hearty. At the dinner this evening, you may have the chance to try saurkraut (fermented cabbage), sauerbraten (beef sausages marinated in vinegar before cooking) or schweinbraten (roast pork in beer, usually wheatbeer). A vegetarian option will also be available.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast our journey continues as we drive into the Netherlands, stopping off first at a windmill, after this quick photo stop enjoy a traditional cheese-making demonstration, and learn about how that most quirky and quaint of footwear choices – the clog – is made, before travelling onward to Amsterdam.
The Dutch tradition of making cheese stretches all the way back to the Roman times. At the cheese making demonstration you will have the opportunity to try typical Dutch varieties, such as Gouda, Edam, Maasdammer (a nutty cheese with large holes), Boerenkaas (raw milk cheese), goat's cheese, smoked cheese and Frisian clove cheese (made with cumin and cloves).
Watch the city drift past as you sail along, and listen out for tips and interesting insights into the city from your tour leader. Reclaimed from the sea, these canals and massive harbor offer a truly unique way to see some of the city's highlights. Later on, why not join your tour leader for a walking tour of the infamous Red Light District! The evening is yours – explore the canals and Dam Square, and enjoy your time in this fascinating city.
Summary of The Day: The last day of your European tour already! After breakfast, we bid farewell to Amsterdam and make our way back to London via the Belgian city of Bruges. Famous for its beer, waffles, chocolate and moules et frites, this is definitely a good place to be if you've brought your appetite. An extremely popular medieval city with no shortage of cobblestone streets, historic old churches and lofty towers, this is a great city to explore and a good spot to pick up any last-minute souvenirs. Once you've had a look around, it's back to the coach for the final leg of our journey back to London.
