This is your chance to see the best of Central Europe, a place of incredible culture and turbulent history. You’ll be making stops in the capitals of Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Austria; you’ll explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites, castles, museums, the Danube River, mountain towns and more. This promises to be a great cultural experience.
To start off your trip in Budapest, you’ll be welcomed at the airport by one of our representatives and transferred to your hotel. A welcome dinner will await and you’ll be able to meet your fellow travellers and tour guide.
On the second day, you’ll be driven through Pest and explore the ‘Pearl of the Danube’. You’ll take in all the main sights of the city such as the Parliament, the Opera House, Héroes’ Square and the Market Hall.
On the third day, you’ll take a half-day tour to the Castle Hill area with visits to Fisherman’s Bastion, Matthias Church and explore more of hilly Buda. Beautiful views and scenery of the Danube River will await you here, as well as an afternoon at leisure where you can visit one of the old spas.
On the fourth day, after enjoying breakfast, you’ll leave for Slovakia and head up into the mountains to the town of Banska Stiavnica. Here you’ll enjoy an authentic Slovak lunch with a local folklore performance. After this, you’ll go on a two-hour walking tour of the town followed by a spot of falconry – it’s very popular in these parts.
On the fifth day you’ll visit Bratislava – the capital of Slovakia. This is one of the newest capital cities in the world since it only gained its status in 1993; you’ll experience an interesting mish-mash of classic, contemporary and urban influences.
You’ll enjoy a walking tour through the city and a dinner in one of the its finest restaurants.
On the sixth day, you’ll head towards Vienna. You’ll be engaging in a range of activities such as a tour of the Schonbrunn Castle, a walking tour of the impressive city and a classical music concert.

A visit to a classic Viennese cafe and a slice of sachertorte is a must.
On the ninth day, after enjoying a lovely breakfast, you’ll leave to the southwest of the Czech Republic where you’ll visit the historic city of Cesky Krumlov. The city is famous for its mixture of Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic elements since most of the old town was build in-between the 14th and 17th century. You’ll also enjoy a traditional lunch and go down the river on a self-paddle raft. The afternoon will be free for you to relax or explore more of the city.
On your way there, you’ll make a stop at Ceské Budejovice to enjoy a beer tasting session. Arriving in Prague, hopefully sober, you’ll take part in two half-day guided tours. These tours will take in key sights such as the Charles Bridge, Royal Way of the Old Town, St Vitus Cathedral, Hradcany Castle, Wenceslas Square and the Astronomical Clock.
There’ll also be plenty of free time so you can explore this city by yourself. Prague has great nightlife as well as culture.
On the last evening, you’ll enjoy a farewell dinner with your fellow travellers on a cruise down the Vltava River.
