Your Itinerary

Day 1: London, England to Paris, France

All good things start with Paris. Meet the crew and grab some supplies before we hit the road early in the morning and jump across the English Channel. The home of 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-related. What better way to start the trip than with a driving tour and delicious picnic next to the Eiffel Tower?

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 extras: 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 ‘Top of Europe’, 72 waterfalls and one of the largest nature conservations in Switzerland, Lauterbrunnen is where we'll be spending the night. Upon arrival, we’ll get stuck into an included dinner before heading to the bar for a nightcap. Cheers!

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 plenty of fairytale villages en route! Another feast awaits your return, regardless of how you make your way back down.

Meals: Breakfast | Lunch
Optional extras: 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 come face to face with an irresistible Italian (meal).

Meals: Breakfast | Dinner
Optional extras:  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 extras: Gondola ride.

Day 7: Venice to Munich, Germany

Time to get to know the city where beer is officially considered a food. Hello, Munich! After a walking tour, why not slide on the lederhosen for a royal Happy Hour experience 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 8: Munich to Heidelberg

Picture the definition of pretty and you've got Heidelberg. We're talking hilltop castle ruins, cobblestoned old quarters and a fairytale 18th-century bridge over the River Neckar. We’ll feast German-style before taste-testing a few steins from the local beer houses.

Included today: Visit former concentration camp Dachau.
Meals: Breakfast  | Dinner

Day 9: Heidelberg to Amsterdam, Netherlands

Start dreaming of cafes, clogs and canals as we roll through tulip and windmill-dotted fields to Amsterdam. We’ll get our bearings on a walking tour of 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: Orientation 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. And for the culture fiends? Delve deeper with a visit to the Anne Frank House (make sure to book in advance!) or the Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum. Whatever you get up to, make sure you’re back in time to toast the final night of our European adventure on a dinner cruise along the canal.

Meals: Breakfast | Dinner
Optional extras: 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.
