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. Pinch yourself and Instagram your first selfie before we kick off the trip with a driving tour and picnic next to the Eiffel Tower. Home to Coco Chanel, the Pompidou Centre and the Mona Lisa, Paris more than deserves its reputation as the European capital for all things culture, fashion and food. Now’s your chance to find out why. Included today: -Driving tour of Paris and gourmet picnic by the Eiffel Tower Meals: -Dinner
Day 2: Paris
This morning: free time en Français. From the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list. Later on, you can stretch those legs on an optional bike tour of Paris, or simply roam the streets on your own. End your day with an optional Seine River cruise or a #throwback bohemian cabaret show. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Traditional cabaret show -Seine river cruise -Bike tour of Paris
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, Interlaken is where we'll be spending the night. Upon arrival, chow down on fondue and hit the bar for a nightcap. Meals: -Breakfast -Lunch -Dinner
Day 4: Swiss Alps
Scenic hikes and jaw-dropping views are high 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 skydiving out of a helicopter upon arrival (if heights don't scare you). Another feast awaits your return, regardless of how you make your way back down. Meals: -Breakfast -Lunch Optional activities: -Scenic excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe') -Skydiving -Scenic helicopter ride -White Water Rafting on River Lütschine
Day 5: Swiss Alps to Venice, Italy
Hand back the skis and yodel your way down the mountains into the land of the long boot. Then: say ciao to Venice! After checking into our accommodation, we’ll have an Eat Pray Love-worthy relationship with an irresistible Italian (meal) and get pumped for living out our own version of The Italian Job tomorrow. Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional activities: -Get a personalised trip T-shirt or hoodie
Day 6: Venice
You know it as The Floating City, but this place is actually sinking (slowly). Today we’ll check out a who's who of Venice's usual suspects on a guided walking tour (ticking off the likes of St Mark's Square and Accademia Bridge), then jump on a vaporetto to explore the Grand Canal. If that’s not enough, you can also hop on an optional gondola ride. 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 Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional activities: -Gondola ride
Day 7: Venice to Munich, Germany
First today: a sobering visit to former concentration camp Dachau. Then: 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. Then: slide on your lederhosen and have a royal Happy Hour experience (none of that craft beer nonsense here) at the 428-year-old Hofbräuhaus. Did you know that the recipes here were passed down from Wilhelm V, the Duke of Bavaria? You do now! Included today: -Visit former concentration camp Dachau -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 – so make sure to breathe in as we weave our way through narrow cobblestone streets and tunnels on our way there. 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: -Stay in the scenic Rhine Valley castle region Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional activities: -Rhine Valley river cruise
Day 9: Rhine Valley to Amsterdam, Netherlands
Start dreaming of cheese, clogs and cheeky café stops as we roll through tulip and windmill dotted fields to Amsterdam. DAM it's going to be a good day! Learn how cheddar and clogs are made, then get your bearings on a walking tour of the vibrant capital. We’re talking the Dam Square, the Royal Palace and the National Monument, so get your cameras at the ready. For the perfect end to the perfect day, give in to temptation and grab a cone of hot chips with mayo. Mmm. Included today: -Dutch cheese and clogs demonstration -Walking tour of Amsterdam Meals: -Breakfast
Day 10: Amsterdam
Join 881,000 bikes and get your cycle on with an optional bike tour of Amsterdam's iconic canals, bridges and parks. Culture fiends, delve deeper with a visit to the Anne Frank House or the Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum. Still thirsty for more? Check out the Heineken Experience and indulge in a spot of beer tasting. Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional activities: -Bike tour of Amsterdam
Day 11: Amsterdam to London, England
After all the Amster-damage has been done, it’s time to hit the road back to ol’ Blighty. Soak up all the happy group vibes you can possibly handle – this is your last coach ride with the gang. #sadface. Meals: -Breakfast
