Tour Itinerary

Budapest, Hungary

Our trip begins this evening in Hungary's grand capital, Budapest, as we meet our Trip Leader for a welcome meeting. Budapest is situated on the banks of the mighty River Danube and is home to Heroes' Square, Parliament House, Buda Castle and the swanky boulevard, Andrássy Avenue. Get to know your fellow travellers over a Hungarian feast in a local restaurant and then kick your feet up at your comfy hotel.

Budapest

Free day! Indulge in a spa treatment at the world famous Gellért Baths and visit the Buda Castle or House of Terror Museum. Tonight, hang with the hipsters and drink local fruit brandy at one of the original ruin bars. Or, there's an optional dinner cruise on the river; you won't wanna miss this one.

Budapest to Krakow, Poland

Legend has it a dragon had to be smited in order for Kraków to be built (with a sulphur stuffed lamb as bait). Bit tougher than the usual council approvals, no? Meet Poland's beating heart - and the largest medieval town square in Europe - on a walking tour. Buff up on history at Wawel Castle, feed the ducks amongst the slushy snow on the bank of the Wisla and after dinner, slay a few glasses of mead.

Krakow

Get all up in the streets of Kraków today and let the statement, "Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire" really sink in at Oskar Schindler's factory. Go 327-metres underground to see hundreds of shades of rock salt in the Wieliczka Salt Mine, visit a centuries-old synagogue in the Jewish district and shop for amber in the UNESCO World Heritage listed Cloth Hall. Your day, your choice.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Krakow to Prague, Czech Republic

This morning we pay our respects at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Afterwards, take some time to reflect before arriving in Prague. Fuel up on trdelník (pastry deliciousness) before a walking tour among spires and cobblestone streets. Suss out the castle deemed worthy by Guinness World Records as being the largest ancient castle in the world, cross medieval Charles Bridge and watch 'Death' toll the hour on an astronomical clock that's over 600 years old. After dinner, get cosy in a café with hot chocolate.

Prague

Channel your inner bohemian and seek out the John Lennon memorial wall to start your free day. Soak up some more Czech history at the National Museum or Communist Museum or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a marionette puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it). Snap a selfie at Prague's own Eiffel Tower, visit The Museum of Miniatures, eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square and drink beer. Really. Good. Beer.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Prague

Our trip is ending, but that doesn't mean your time here has to. Get in touch with your boho side and stay longer to hit up a jazz club, circle Wenceslas Square or reserve tickets to a show at the Prague State Opera House.
