Itinerary

Map Image
icon Day 1: Berlin

Location: Berlin

Arrive at any time.
Please make your own way to the joining hotel. We recommend arriving a day or two early to fully explore this world-renowned city.

icon Day 2: Berlin

Location: Berlin

Enjoy an orientation walk with your CEO before exploring sections of the Berlin Wall with a local historian and delving deeper into its political and social history. Opt to take a river tour or visit galleries and museums with free time.
Berlin is an amazing city with tangible historical importance and is a melting pot of different cultures and flavours.

icon Day 3: Berlin/Prague

Location: Berlin

Head to the capital of the Czech Republic by train. Enjoy a guided tour of the old town, including the Jewish Quarter, astronomical clock, Charles Bridge, and Wenceslas Square.
A great way to spend the evening is watching the sunset from the heights of the Letna Beer Garden, where you can sample Czech beer, world-famous for its superb quality and low cost.

icon Day 4: Prague

Location: Prague

The day is free to explore. Wander the quarters to shop or relax at a local café. Opt to visit Prague Castle, museums, and galleries.
Charles Bridge by day is packed with vendors and street musicians. At night, it is less crowded, and it's much easier to appreciate the scenery as well as the ever-so-slightly sinister quality of the statues looming overhead. Cross the bridge and you'll find yourself in Mala Strana, a far less crowded district that offers the perfect atmosphere for some introspective wandering. If you're in the area and want to experience traditional Czech pubs which are guaranteed to be loud, lively, and packed with locals on any night of the week, this is the place for it. You'll find restaurants serving traditional Czech cuisine like fried pork cutlets, goulash, and dumplings.

icon Day 5: Prague/Český Krumlov

Location: Prague

Travel to the charming town of Český Krumlov. Opt to visit the castle.
The inclusion of Ceský Krumlov on UNESCO's List of Natural and Cultural Heritage was undoubtedly a turning point in the modern history of the town. It sent a clear signal to the rest of the cultural world that South Bohemia has something unique to offer.

icon Day 6: Český Krumlov/Vienna

Location: Český Krumlov

Drive across the border into Austria, where we take an orientation walk with our CEO. Stop by a Viennese café for a taste of the world-famous Sacher Torte - an elegant confection historically linked to Vienna's distinguished coffee houses. Enjoy free time this evening to visit the opera house or simply enjoy a walk around the city.

icon Day 7: Vienna

Location: Vienna

This morning, visit the famed Naschmarkt with a culinary expert, exploring the stalls and lanes to sample some of Vienna's finest treats. This afternoon is free to wander the elegant streets. Take in some of Europe's most distinguished art galleries, visit the stunning Lipizzaner horses of the renowned Vienna Riding School, experience mass with the Vienna Boys Choir, or settle into a café.

icon Day 8: Vienna/Budapest

Location: Vienna

Catch a train to our last stop, Budapest. Head out for an orientation walk, then visit a G Adventures-supported café whose proceeds assist Hungarians living with a disability. With some free time, opt to "take the waters" at a thermal bathhouse or visit the stunning castle.
You might like to have an optional dinner at a local restaurant on Váci Utca, which is the bustling main street of Budapest. To gain deeper insight on local history, opt to pre-book the "Budapest History Walking Tour" on the checkout page ahead of time, to include this optional on your tour.

icon Day 9: Budapest

Location: Budapest

Depart at any time.
We recommend staying a few extra days to experience all this city has to offer.
