The day is yours; you could jump onto an historical walking tour of the city to learn about the East, the West and everything in-between in this city packed with a troubled past. Later you can get in the know on the famous Berlin street art scene, complete with stops along the way for the likes of schnitzel, bratwurst and delicious local eats to keep things go go go. What else? The list is endless, or you could jump straight into the mood of the tour and save yourself for a night of thudding beats & club hopping.

Day 3: Berlin To Prague

Location: Berlin, Dresden, Prague

Accommodation: A&O Prague Rhea (or similar)

Accommodation Name: Zleep Hotel (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

It's time to begin dipping south. Though we could kick it in Berlin for months without getting bored, we have a pretty important schedule ahead of us ... #Szige A drive from Berlin to Prague would not be complete without stopping in Dresden. Destroyed by World War II, the rebuilt town is now a symbol of resilience, soaked in the rebirthed beauty of an Opera house, the domed Frauenkirche, & the Royal Residence. By the afternoon we'll be Czech side, heading to the buzzing capital city of Prague. Always down to explore, we'll waste no time getting acquainted with castles, bridges, gothic cathedrals & general prettiness galore

Day 4: Prague

Location: Prague

Accommodation: A&O Prague Rhea (or similar)

Accommodation Name: Zleep Hotel (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast

Today you’ll have some free time to bask in Prague’s awesome historic architecture and all-round chilled vibes. Explore all things Kafka, Mozart… and don’t forget to sample the traditional ovocné knedlíky (fruit dumplings), not to mention the legendary Czech beer.

Day 5: Prague To Vienna

Location: Prague, Kutna Hora, Vienna

Accommodation: Ibis Wien Mariahilf Hotel Vienna (or similar)

Accommodation Name: Ibis Wien Mariahilf Hotel Vienna (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Just remember, with every great city we leave behind we get a little bit closer to the dream scene that is Sziget. Leaving fine lands has never felt so good! Out of Prague, our first stop is the World Heritage-listed Kutná Hora. Make the local Sedlec Ossuary chapel high priority, it's decked out and furnished in the bones of over 40,000 ... humans. True! Two nights in Vienna will see as getting into a slightly different musical mood than Sziget has in store for us. But that's for tomorrow's excitement! First, we have a bit of heritage to tap into with the grandeur palace of Schönbrunn, the uber elegant State Opera House and the gothic masterpiece of St. Stephen’s Cathedral. As promised, tonight you have the chance to get into the mood of this trip - just with a slightly different melody - by experiencing Vienna’s musical legacy with a Mozart and Strauss concert in one of the city’s imperial palaces.

Day 6: Vienna

My amazing trip to Africa

Sherif was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about every single small detail at each site that we visited. In addition to his great service, he has a glowing spirit that made me feel like I had family with me the entire trip. Anything that I was concerned about, he always had an answer and was there to help. I truly enjoyed my experience and will purchase a tour with him in the future
