Your Itinerary

Day 1: Venice, Italy

Say ciao to Venice as you check in and meet the group. 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: Dinner

Day 2: 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 Venice'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. 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 discover the perfect gelato.

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

Meals: Breakfast | Dinner

Day 3: 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, then have a royal Happy Hour experience at the 429-year-old Hofbräuhaus – the recipes here were passed down from Wilhelm V, the Duke of Bavaria. "Oans, zwoa, g'suffa" (one, two, down the hatch)!

Included today: Walking tour of Munich

Meals: Breakfast | Lunch

Day 4: Munich to Prague, Czech Republic

Give one last prost to Munich before we press on to Prague. First up, a visit to Dachau concentration camp for a lesson in the resilience of humanity. Then, channel your inner bohemian and seek out the John Lennon wall to start your free day. Soak up some Czech history at the National or Communist Museum or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a marionette puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it).

Included today: Visit former concentration camp Dachau | Walking tour of Prague

Meals: Breakfast | Dinner

Day 5: Prague

Another free day for the win. Snap a selfie at Prague's own Eiffel Tower, visit a miniatures museum, eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square and drink beer. Really. Good. Beer.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 6: Prague to Berlin, Germany

Get acquainted with 800 year-old Dresden – a city virtually destroyed in WWII and then rebuilt – and ogle the Frauenkirche before making your beard all the more ironic in Berlin. Prep yourself for currywurst and more hipsters per capita than anywhere else. We'll drive you around to see (what's left of) the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag building before making your food baby sing with a hearty German meal.

Included today: Walking tour of the restored city of Dresden | Driving tour of Berlin

Meals: Breakfast | Dinner

Day 7: Berlin

Shake off last night with a wander around the German capital. Optional: Third Reich walking tour and local insight into what the city was like under Nazi rule during World War II. Kreuzberg is a hit for lunch. Afternoon suggestion? Have a picnic at the historic Tempelhof airport turned public park #picniconthetarmac. Tonight: hit the hotspots on an optional alternative and nightlife tour of Berlin.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 8: Berlin to Amsterdam, Netherlands

Cheese lovers, rejoice. Your next stop is a local Dutch farm to see how cheddar cheeses (and clogs) get made. Next: Amsterdam, mayo-dipped fries and red lights. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the vibrant capital and see the Dam Square, Royal Palace and National Monument. Then: explore all that this notoriously liberal city has to offer.

Included today: Dutch cheese & clogs demonstration | Walking tour of Amsterdam

Meals: Breakfast

Day 9: Amsterdam

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 for an interactive visit and tasting at the brewery. Top it off with a dinner cruise on the canal.

Included today: Canal dinner cruise in Amsterdam

Meals: Breakfast | Dinner

Day 10: Amsterdam to London, England

After all the Amster-damage has been done, 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.

Meals: Breakfast
