Your Itinerary

Day 1: London, England to Paris, France (or join in Paris)

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, Lauterbrunnen 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 | Dinner
Optional activities: Scenic excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe') | Skydiving | Scenic helicopter ride | Tickets for the Schilthorn cable car | Visit a Swiss watch shop

Day 5: Swiss Alps to Florence, Italy

Hand back the skis and yodel your way down the mountains into the land of the long boot. Stop for THAT photo at Pisa, then make your food baby sing as we roll into the land of hearty Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence. Whip around Santa Maria del Fiore before tucking into amore on a plate. The evening is yours to stroll along the the Arno River and watch the sunset. #Bliss

Included today: Visit Pisa and the famous Leaning Tower
Meals: Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 6: Florence to Rome

After a walking tour of Florence with a super knowledgeable local guide, it’s up and onwards to Rome. Time to give that bucket list a workout! Make like Caesar (the emperor, not the salad) and work up a ‘colossus’ hunger as you pass by the Pantheon, throw your two cents in the Trevi Fountain, sit on the Spanish Steps and visit ancient history's version of the Hunger Games set at the Colosseum. Tonight, you're in Disneyland for foodies. Have fun.

Included today: Walking tour of Florence with a local guide | Walking tour of Rome
Meals: Breakfast | Dinner

Day 7: Rome including Vatican City visit

Create the ultimate Roman Holiday in one day with a whirlwind of Vespas, espresso, two-cheek kisses and pizza the way it's supposed to taste. Count your blessings on an optional tour of the Vatican City, then play ‘I-spy’ with two-and-a-half millennia worth of history. Want more? Then you could always shop till you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for awesome views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness).

Meals: Breakfast
Optional activities: Guided tour of the Vatican City

Day 8: Rome to 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
Optional activities: Gondola ride | Get a personalised trip T-shirt or hoodie

Day 9: 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. 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: Walking tour of Munich
Meals: Breakfast | Lunch

Day 10: Munich to Berlin

It’s time to make tracks to Berlin! Prep yourself for currywurst, absinthe 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.

Included today: Driving tour of Berlin
Meals: Breakfast

Day 11: Berlin

Today, why not step out on an optional Third Reich walking tour for a 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. Tonight: explore the city after dark on an optional alternative street art and nightlife tour.

Meals: Breakfast
Optional activities: Third Reich walking tour | Street art and nightlife tour

Day 12: Berlin 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 13: Amsterdam

Join 881,000 bikes and get your cycle on with an optional bike tour of Amsterdam's iconic canals, bridges and parks.

Day 14: 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.
