Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = the perfect mix of group activities and all-important YOU time. Essential. Vital. The must-dos. The unmissables. Whatever you call those bits of Europe that you just HAVE to explore, you can rely on this fast-paced trip to properly school you in them. We're talking Rome, Amsterdam, Venice, Paris... the big guns. But that isn't all - this trip also swings by the likes of quaint little Heidelberg and lakeside stunner Lucerne. And adds in plenty of free time to do your thing. What a mix, right? Quick maths: take two weeks, turn them into something special.
