Day 1

1: Visit Paris. Welcome to the Europe Highlights tour! Leaving London behind us, we make our way to Paris, crossing the English Channel and arriving in the ‘City of Lights’ in the afternoon. We'll take you on a driving tour of the French capital; get your cameras ready - you’ll be seeing some of the city’s most treasured landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Arc de Triomphe! After the driving tour we'll enjoy dinner at a restaurant in the Latin Quarter, an eclectic, bohemian and historic neighbourhood. We'll then travel back to the hotel on Paris' world famous metro system, ready to explore the city further on our free day tomorrow! Included: Dinner.

Day 2

2: A free day in Paris. 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. Included: Breakfast.

Day 3

3: Visit Burgundy & Switzerland. Au revoir Paris! Today we sample a taste of small town France with a lunch stop in Burgundy. In the town of Beaune you can visit the beautiful Hospices de Beaune, or try the famous wine. After lunch we take a long scenic drive across the border into Switzerland and head towards the Swiss Alps for our stay in a typical mountain village in the heart of the Jungfrau region. This is one of the most-visited regions of the Alps and also a World Heritage site, containing Europe's largest glacier. Welcome to the Swiss Alps, your home for the next two days! Included: Breakfast, dinner.

Day 4

4: A free day in the Swiss Alps. The day is yours to enjoy the majesty of the Swiss Alps. Be sure to book a spot on the optional excursion to Jungfraujoch, the highest train station in Europe, where you’ll also find a visitor’s centre, lookout point and weather station. The views are simply breath-taking 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! Included: Breakfast.

Day 5

5: Visit Pisa and Tuscany. 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! After some free time here (be sure to get the perfect photo!) we travel on to our accommodation in Tuscany, arriving in the late afternoon. Famous for its stunning countryside, fine food and wine, Tuscany is guaranteed to enthral. Included: Breakfast.

Day 6

6: Visit Florence and Venice. 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. Included: Breakfast.

Day 7

7: Visit Munich. 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! Included: Breakfast, dinner.

Day 8

8: Visit the Rhine Valley. 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? Included: Breakfast, dinner.

Day 9

9: Visit Amsterdam. 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. Here we’ll check in to our hotel before joining a complimentary Amsterdam canal dinner cruise! 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 harbour 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. Included: Breakfast, dinner.

Day 10

10: Visit Bruges and return to London. 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. Included: Breakfast.
