Essential Europe

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

This European escape is like a pretty little package, all wrapped up in a bow. Think: a collection of fascinating cultures, plus some of the finest landscapes and most fabulous cities on the continent. From the vibrancy of Amsterdam to the ancient wonders of Rome, the traditional beer halls of Munich and everything else in between. Our Essential Europe truly is the best of the best.

Trip Itinerary

  1. London, England to Amsterdam, Netherlands


    Meet with the crew and hit the road to Amsterdam. DAM it's going to be a good day! 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.

    Too much time on a coach driving. Not enough time in cities, and most hotels where awful, only 2 were decent out of the 10 we stayed in. Included activities where mediocre. Even some of the paid ones were lack lustre.

    Our trip leader was incredible, you could tell she was genuinely passionate about travel and she provided us with so much history while we were touring each city, we never felt like we missed out. We had excellent banter with the coach drivers (and it's a coach, not a bus, before you get that wrong one too many times!) and always felt safe and looked after. We had insider knowledge of the best places to each and drink in each city and I loved having all our optional activities lined up for us as soon as we arrived, maximising the time we had. Nothing was too much trouble, they put up with our endless questions, chit chat and even let us guest DJ on the coach! It was quite a quick trip, we definitely got incredible value for our time, but when we go back next year, we'll be looking at a longer trip so we get a few more days in each city.
