ITINERARY

Day 1: Depart Australia (I/F)

Pack your bags, as you head to the airport for your international flight bound for Munich!

Day 2: Arrive in Munich (D)

Arrive in Munich where you’ll be met by a tour guide and transferred to your hotel. Depending on what time you arrive, you could head into town to see the sights ahead of the start of your tour. A city that exhibits both prosperity and a certain amount of comfort and cosiness, Munich’s apparent contradictions will delight the avid explorer. Even with all its smart sophistication, Munich has a certain charm that you’ll find irresistible.

Tonight, meet your fellow explorers and get to know them over an authentic German beer in a traditional beer hall for dinner. Prost!

Day 3: Munich – Salzburg – Lake Bled – Ljubljana (B)

Leaving Munich this morning, your first stop is Salzburg. Featuring gorgeous architecture, a formidable cliff-top fortress and imposing cliffs in the distance, you could be forgiven for thinking that you’d accidently dropped into a fairy tale. Then it’s onto Lake Bled for a photo stop. The glittering lake is situated in the Julian Alps and surrounds Bled Island in the middle of the lake, overlooked by the medieval Bled Castle on the north shore.

On arrival in Ljubljana this afternoon, enjoy a walking tour of this little gem of a city. Despite its small size, you’re sure to be entranced by the beauty of this city, which features a wealth of cultural treasures, activities and sights.

Day 4: Ljubljana – Plitvice Lakes – Split (B, D)

Today, you will be treated to some of the most picturesque natural landscapes in the whole of Europe as you head to Croatia to visit the world-famous Plitvice Lakes National Park. Stroll along the boardwalks and marvel at the incredible natural scenery of Croatia’s largest national park. Filled with waterfalls, lush vegetation and countless lakes, this is one of the most beautiful stops on the tour, so keep your cameras handy! Once you’ve got an eyeful, and a camera-load of shots, head to your hotel for an included dinner and evening of relaxation.

Day 5: Split – Dubrovnik (B)

Before heading to Dubrovnik today, you’ll have time to stroll around the historic town of Split, including the sprawling Palace of Diocletian. On arrival in Dubrovnik, your tour leader will take you on an orientation tour of the Old Town, where you’ll get intimately acquainted with this stunning walled city and it’s glorious maritime history dating back to the Middle Ages.

Afterwards, learn about the city’s history, stroll the marble streets, take a walk along the ancient city walls or try one of the many charming restaurants on your own. You have plenty of time to explore, so don’t rush – you have a full free day tomorrow.

Day 6: Dubrovnik Free Day (B)

Independently discover Dubrovnik today, with plenty of free time to visit the Maritime Museum in St. John’s Castle, linger in the historic Old Town, or enjoy people-watching at a charming cafe with an espresso in-hand.

Day 7: Dubrovnik – Mostar – Sarajevo (B, D)

Leaving Dubrovnik behind today, travel to Sarajevo, stopping on the way in the enchanting Balkan town of Mostar. Mostar is an enchanting and historical place, which offers a splattering of numerous religious buildings of Roman, Greek, Croatian and Ottoman influences.

Arriving in Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, learn all about the city’s troubled past, returning from the brink of destruction in the 90s, while admiring the East-meets-West atmosphere on a walking tour of this fascinating city.

Day 8: Sarajevo – Belgrade (B, D)

Saying goodbye to Sarajevo this morning, make your way to the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Enjoy a tour of the city with a local guide from the opulent Republic Square to the whimsical Bohemian Quarter (Skadarlija) and luscious Kalemegdan Park to the Belgrade Fortress. After the walking tour, enjoy an included dinner with your group, before some free time to explore the city on your own.

Day 9: Belgrade – Hungarian Horse Farm – Budapest (B, D)

After breakfast today, you’re bound for Hungary, making a stop at a farm in the traditional homeland of the Hungarian horse lords. Watch a traditional horse show where the locals demonstrate their equestrian skills, before an optional lunch hosted by the farm where you’ll have the opportunity to try world famous Hungarian goulash, a rich and hearty beef stew.

Then travel onward to Budapest. With a great mix of natural beauty and art nouveau architecture, this is a city to behold. Embark on an evening driving tour to get an overview of the city, including over the mighty Danube, before making a stop at the Fisherman’s Bastion for spectacular views across the river to the Parliament Building and St Stephen’s Basilica. Take note of all the spots you want to revisit tomorrow on your free day!

Day 10: Budapest Free Day (B)

With traces of the past evident around every cobblestone road and in every old-world shop fronts, this is your chance to get up close and personal with Budapest. You could look out for remnants of the conflicts of WWII and the uprising of 1956, savour Hungarian delicacies, sample world-renowned wines, or perhaps soak your weary rambler’s bones in one of the city’s bathhouses – something Budapest has been known for since the Roman times. After a day of exploration, maybe catch the sunset with an evening stroll along the Danube.

Day 11: Budapest – Bratislava – Vienna (B, D)

Head for the grandeur of Vienna today, stopping along the way in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Your tour leader will take you on an orientation tour to see some of the main sights, including a photo stop at Bratislava Castle, which overlooks the city.

On arrival in Vienna, admire the cultural and historical splendour of this exciting and modern city with a driving tour. Afterwards, why not spend your evening sampling Vienna’s buzzing modern culinary scene, cheerful, bustling pubs and bars, or tracing Vienna’s musical past with luminaries like Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms, and artworks by masters like Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka.

Day 12: Vienna – Mauthausen – Cesky Krumlov – Prague (B, D)

On the way to Prague today, you will visit Mauthausen Concentration Camp to learn about a darker chapter in Europe’s history. A labour camp during the WWII, this was where hundreds of thousands of political prisoners lost their lives. Then, a brief stop in Cesky Krumlov.

Blessed with a spectacular castle and a wealth of Renaissance and Baroque architecture, Cesky Krumlov is often thought of as a sort of mini-Prague, the perfect entree before arriving in the real deal. On arrival, enjoy a walking tour of this incredible city famed for its art, architecture, cobbled lanes and ancient chapels, including some of Europe’s finest beer.

Your local tour guide will proudly escort you through the historic streets, pointing out the features of the ’Old Town’, Primatial Palace, Slovak National Theatre and the Main Square. For dinner, experience authentic Czech cuisine at a local restaurant on your first night in Prague.

Day 13: Prague – Free Day (B)

Today, take the time to explore on your own, perhaps revisiting some of the sights you saw on your walking tour yesterday. You’ll have the whole day to yourself to savour the local cuisine (including the much-lauded and hugely varied beers), visit art galleries, admire the weird and witty sculpture that adorns the city’s public spaces, and marvel at the soaring gothic and baroque architecture.

Day 14: Prague – Nuremberg – Munich (B, D)

Before heading back to Munich, stop along the way in Nuremberg. Bavaria’s second-largest city, you’ll find incredible architecture here, painstakingly restored using original stone after the bombings of WWII. Your last night of the tour sees you back in Munich for you to enjoy as you see fit. Relax in your hotel, get together with your new-found friends from the tour for a farewell dinner, perhaps capped off with a stein in one of the beer halls that welcomed you so warmly at the beginning of your adventure.

Day 15: Munich – Australia (B, I/F)

Your tour concludes after breakfast today. Don’t forget to swap details with your fellow travellers before your onward journey home!
