Tour Itinerary Close
  • Day 1 Berlin Ready and raring for a banquet of cultural travel, we’ll round up in Germany’s chic capital. With more museums than rainy days per year, Berlin is a place worth knowing about. Locations Visited: Berlin DE.
  • Day 2 Berlin We'll start today off by exploring the streets & stories of Berlin in a guided Historical Walking Tour. When hunger strikes you're free to roam and find some currywurst, pretzels or Kartoffelpuffer, or for the veggie-inclined there's jackfruit burgers and cashew bolognaise served hot at Amaranth, a solar-powered organic hotel. You're free to do your own thing tonight, or let your curiosity be piqued by our optional Cold War Cold Drinks experience. Locations Visited: Berlin DE.
  • Day 3 Berlin Show us what you've got, Berlin! With a full free day to get further under the skin of this quirky city, you might want to take up the option of guided Berlin bike tour to the off-the-beaten-track sights, sip tea in a palace at the Tajik Tearoom, or swing by the abandoned Museumswohnung where you can see remnants of the Soviet era. This evening, you have the opportunity to learn the secrets of eating like a real local Berliner, with an optional EatWith Berlin meal. Locations Visited: Berlin DE.
  • Day 4 Berlin to Prague "More city hangs" you'll all scream in unison as we motor out of Berlin, high on life & still wanting more. Since you asked so nicely, let us present you with Prague, the darling of Europe.With our sombre stop behind us we’ll journey forwards arriving in the famously pretty city of Prague. With fairy-tale streets meeting hipster hangouts and graffiti, it’s not hard to understand the current allure of this beguiling city. Locations Visited: Berlin DE, Prague CZ.
  • Day 5 Prague The history of Czech beer supposedly dates back to the year 993, when brewing took place in a monastery. With such cultural significance & historical roots, it seems only manners to do some Czech beer tasting. Today we can take a trip to the UNESCO town of Kutna Hora, where gothic architecture, human bone chandeliers, & a silver mining history can be found. Locations Visited: Prague CZ.
  • Day 6 Prague Make the most of your free day today by signing up for a morning bicycle tour, the perfect way to navigate the narrow alleyways and quaint corners of the city otherwise forgotten. Or maybe catch the tram to one of Prague's outer neighbourhoods like hipster VrÅ¡ovice, boasting art nouveau buildings, offbeat coffee haunts and streets lined with communal pianos. Either way, be back in time for our included traditional Czech evening complete with dinner and dancing. The night is young, and so are we.... Locations Visited: Prague CZ.
  • Day 7 Prague to Krakow If you picked up any Czech we’ll be saying our ‘ahoj’ this morning, as we leave Prague and make our way into Poland. After sliding due east and crossing the Czech / Poland border, we’ll pass through pretty towns like Katowice before hitting the brakes in Krakow.Arriving in the artistic capital of Poland, we’ll find a city of cherry trees & history & beauty.

  • Day 8 Krakow including Auschwitz In a town where unassuming 14th century cobbled lanes can spit you onto a sprawling Romanesque castle, seeing as much as possible with the aid of a bike should be mandatory.This morning we'll shift pace a little with a sobering but eye-opening guided tour through the Auschwitz & Birkenau concentration camp memorials. Once the original working 'camps', these memorials house the stories of a generation never to be forgotten.Onwards, upwards & seeing the world with brighter eyes than ever before, we'll settle gratefully back in to Krakow for the afternoon. In a town where unassuming 14th century cobbled lanes rub shoulders with a grandiose Renaissance castle, Baroque & Gothic buildings, historic Schindler's factory & views over the Vistula river, jump on the optional Krakow city bike tour for your best chance to get around it all.

  • Day 9 Krakow Rise & shine, you have a free morning to stroll the charming streets of Krakow before our planned afternoon activites. Check out Kazimierz, the UNESCO-listed Old Town & historic Jewish Quarter with its jumble of street art, vintage markets, crumbling cafes & 14th century synagogue. This afternoon prepare to be amazed as we journey deep underground on a visit to the Wieliczka Salt Mines, with an included tour of the mindblowing crystalline tunnels, caves & cathedral, all carved out of the salt rock. Conserve some energy for our optional Pierogi dinner later on, when you'll have the chance to craft your very own traditional Polish boiled dumplings. Locations Visited: Krakow PL.
  • Day 10 Krakow to Budapest Alpine scenery and traditional villages will make our departure from Krakow more manageable. Particularly with the knowledge that we have Budapest coming up in the eve.

Being in Slovakia, it's also your chance to brag 3 countries in one day - you crazy globetrotter you.Arriving in the delightful Budapest, we'll drop off our bags and take to the city for an included group dinner, tasting local specialities like goulash and stuffed peppers. If the night hours need honouring, we'll head for the faded grandeur of the recovered Eight District of Józsefváro, checking out some of the famous ruin bars and live music venues hidden amongst cafes & vintage shops.

Soak those aching muscles in one of the city's thermal baths (entry fee's on us), Thermal bathing has been a tradtion here for thousands of years - cultural immersion has never been so blissful! To round off the day, you have the option to join a Cook With Budapest dining experience, spending your evening testing and tasting traditional Hungarian recipes. Locations Visited: Budapest HU.
