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.

Included today: -Driving tour of Paris & gourmet picnic by the Eiffel Tower Meals: -Dinner
Day 2: Paris
This morning: free time en Francais. From the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay to the l'Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysées, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list. Hop on an optional bike tour of Paris or roam the streets on your own before an optional Seine River cruise or a #throwback bohemian cabaret show. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Traditional cabaret show in Paris -Scenic river cruise on the Seine -Bike tour of Paris
Day 3: Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland
Trade in Parisian streets for snowy peaks. 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.

Meals: -Breakfast -Lunch Optional activities: -Scenic excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe') -Scenic helicopter ride in the Swiss Alps -Skydiving in the Swiss Alps -Aare river float
Day 5: Swiss Alps to Venice, Italy
Time to yodel your way down the mountains and into the land of the long boot to say ciao to Venice. Check out our accommodation, have an Eat Pray Love-worthy relationship with an irresistible Italian (meal) and get pumped for living out your own version of The Italian Job tomorrow. Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
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 in Venice Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional activities: -Gondola ride in Venice
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 428-year- old Hofbräuhaus - 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.

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.
