Quick Holiday Overview

A short and sweet introductory tour of Europe

Take in all the major highlights of this fabulous continent (as well as some tucked-away gems), and discover why countries like France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands are featured on everyone’s Pinterest boards. The perfect trip for those who are big on ambition but short on time, the Europe Express will have you ticking off bucket list items faster than you can say, “Group selfie!” Let’s go!

About the Holiday

Day 1: London, England to Paris, France
All good things start with Paris. Meet the crew, grab some supplies and hit the road early in the morning as we jump across the English Channel to Paris. Pinch yourself and Instagram your first selfie over dinner before we kick off the trip with a guided tour of the City of Lights with your Trip Leader. Home to Coco Chanel, the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa, Paris has more than earned its reputation as the European capital for all things culture, fashion and food. Tonight, find out why.
Included today:
-Paris city driving tour
Meals:
-Dinner

Day 2: Paris
This morning: free time en Francais. From the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay to the l'Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list. Then: hop on an optional bike tour of Paris or roam the streets on your own before our gourmet picnic at the Eiffel Tower. End your day with an optional Seine River cruise or a #throwback bohemian cabaret show.
Included today:
-Gourmet picnic by the Eiffel Tower
Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
Optional activities:
-Paris bike tour
-Seine River cruise
-Traditional cabaret show in the Latin Quarter

Day 3: Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland
Trade in Parisian streets for snowy peaks. Home to the highest point in Europe, 72 waterfalls and one of the largest nature conservations in Switzerland, Lauterbrunnen is obviously where we're spending the night. Urban charm ain't got nothing on Swiss scenery. Upon arrival, chow down on Swiss cuisine and hit the bar for a nightcap.
Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 4: Swiss Alps
Scenic hikes and jaw-dropping views are on today's agenda. Go low key with a mountain walk or hop on board the Jungfraubahn railway for an optional visit to the Jungfrau Mountain summit. Expect fairytale villages en route and sky-diving out of a helicopter upon arrival (if heights don't scare you). And if one hulking mountain isn't enough? Nearby Schilthorn is also waiting. Another local feast awaits your return, regardless of how you make your way back down.
Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 5: Swiss Alps to Florence, Italy
Hand back the skis and yodel your way down the mountains and into the land of the long boot. Stop for That photo at Pisa, and then make your food baby sing as we roll into the land of hearty Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence. Whip around Santa Maria del Fiore before tucking into amore on a plate. Then the evening is yours to stroll along the real-life watercolour of the Arno River, wishing you were a painter.
Included today:
-Pisa visit
Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
Day 6: Venice
You know it as the floating city, but this place is actually sinking (slowly). Check out St. Mark's Square, Accademia Bridge and a who's who of the city's usual suspects on a guided walking tour, then jump on a vaporetto and explore the Grand Canal. Also on the schedule: an optional gondola ride through the maze of marble bridges and gelato shops we call Venice. Throw away your map in the afternoon and try to find the world's most epic little bookshop, Libreria Acqua Alta, or just go on a mission to find the perfect gelato.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Venice
-Vaporetto ride on the Grand Canal

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Gondola ride on the Grand Canal

Day 7: Venice to Munich, Germany
It's time to get to know the city where beer is officially considered a food. Your Trip Leader will clue you up on the Bavarian capital on a walking tour. Slide on your Lederhosen and have a royal Happy Hour experience (none of that craft beer nonsense here) at the 426-year- old Hofbrauhaus - the recipes here were passed down from Wilhelm V, the Duke of Bavaria.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Munich
Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch

Day 8: Munich to Rhine Valley
Medieval castles, vineyards and the mighty Rhine River are all up next today. Breathe in as we weave our way through narrow cobblestone streets and tunnels, then give Queen B a run for her money with your own 12th-century castle quarters. Besides its obvious appeal (fairytale views over the Rhine, anyone?) half of Germany's wine comes from here. Shame not to try some.

Included today:
-Rhine Valley River Cruise

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Rhine Valley River cruise

Day 9: Rhine Valley to Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Amster-DAM it's going to be a good day! Start dreaming of cheese, clogs and cheeky cafe stops as we roll through tulip and windmill dotted fields to Amsterdam. Learn how cheddar and the chunky wooden shoes are made, and then get your bearings on a walking tour of the vibrant capital. End the night with a cone of hot chips with mayo. Mmm.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Amsterdam
-Steins and Cuckoos demonstration
-Dutch cheese and clogs demonstration

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 10: Amsterdam
Join the 881,000 bicycles and get local on a city bike tour of Amsterdam's iconic canals, bridges and parks. Culture fiends, delve deeper with a visit to the Anne Frank House, Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum. Still thirsty for more? Check out the Heineken Experience for an interactive visit and tasting at the brewery. Top it off with a dinner cruise on the canal.

Included today:
-Canal dinner cruise

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Bicycle tour of Amsterdam

Day 11: Amsterdam to London, England
After all the Amster-damage has been done and dusted, it’s time to hit the road and make tracks to ol' Blighty. Soak up all the happy group vibes you can possibly handle – this is your last coach ride with the gang. #sadface.

London

London is the capital city of the United Kingdom and the largest city in England. An important settlement for two millennia, London is one of the world's leading business, financial and cultural centres. London is a major tourist destination with four world heritage sites, several royal parks, and numerous iconic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye.

Although there is some evidence of scattered Brython settlement in the area, the first major settlement was founded by the Romans in AD 43, following the Roman invasion of Britain. This settlement was called Londinium, commonly believed to be the origin of the present-day name, although a Celtic origin is also possible.

During summer, London's bountiful green spaces fill up with office workers and tourists enjoying the surprisingly balmy days as cafe tables sprout across a multitude of pavements. During winter, the grey skies and rain can be forgotten for a while in numerous cosy pubs. But spring or autumn are probably the best seasons to visit the city, when clear crisp sunny days often illuminate London and its landmarks, old and new.

Walking the streets of London, or strolling through its parks, one realises that, in a city hailed for its ability to embrace modernity and change, the past is, however, never far away: there are four world heritage sites in London (the Palace of Westminster, the Tower of London, Maritime Greenwhich and Kew Gardens) and some 40,000 listed buildings and structures. Three of Britain�s top 10 paying attractions and six of the top 10 free ones can be found in London. The London Eye, since it made its appearance on the banks of the Thames to mark the turn of the millennium, has since become the most popular attraction for visitors to the capital.

London�s nightlife is currently buzzing with everything, from some of Europe�s liveliest nightclubs right through to stylish design bars and traditional old London pubs. Night-time hotspots can be found across the capital, although there is a particular concentration in the West End, where Soho is still the coolest place to drink, although it remains seedy along the edges. Soho is also the best place for gay bars and clubs. Two particularly hip areas in which to drink are the perennially cool Notting Hill/Ladbroke Grove area in the west and the Old Street/Shoreditch area in the east. If a traditional English pub is what you are after, try the 17th-century George Inn, 77 Borough High Street, SE1 - the only surviving example of a galleried coaching inn in London. Nearby, a popular watering hole for patrons of the Globe Theater, tourists and locals is The Anchor, Bankside, SE1. This 17th-century haunt is quaint and quirky, while its Thames-side terrace is a delight on sunny days.
