Day 1: LONDON TO AMSTERDAM

LONDON
Your 7-country, 9-day adventure begins here! You’ll meet up with your Contiki crew in London and we’ll all board our coach here, ready to set off for European soil.
DOVER
Shortly before we find our ferry for Europe, we’ll be taking in the English coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover. They owe their gorgeousness to their composition of chalk – you’re learning and we haven’t even left the UK!
CALAIS
Off the ferry we arrive in the port town of Calais – French soil! Next we journey to Amsterdam!
AMSTERDAM
And here we are at our final stop for this evening: Amsterdam! We’ll start our exploration of this city with a peek of canals, bicycles & 17th century gable houses lit up by night. Next on the agenda tonight, we have an optional evening cruise along the canals – the perfect way for our travel crew to get to know each other. Afterwards, there’s plenty of nightlife to keep you going until the early hours.

Included Meals: Dinner

 

Day 2: AMSTERDAM TO RHINE VALLEY

AMSTERDAM
This morning is your chance to explore Amsterdam. Take a wander down a cobbled canal-lined street, step into a local ‘Poffertjes’ cafe for Dutch mini pancakes, or check out some of the cute bookshops lining the canal. Then say ‘Vaarwel!’ because this afternoon we’re setting off for our next country, Germany.
RHINE VALLEY
From narrow canals to one sprawling river, with boats gliding to and fro. Welcome to the Rhine Valley, home of premium German wine… in a classic romantic setting. It’s a treat for all the senses.
Hotel Montag Sankt Goar (or similar)
Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

 

Day 3: RHINE VALLEY TO MUNICH

RHINE VALLEY
Saying goodbye to the Rhine Valley, we’ll head on to Munich – where lederhosen, dirndls, steins of beer and gingerbread-style buildings await.
MUNICH
“Prost!”. Here in the home of Oktoberfest we’ll take a locally guided tour of the city, and amuse ourselves watching the antics of mechanical figurines in the city’s famous Glockenspiel. Making the most of our time in Munich this evening, we’ll get introduced to 800 years of history at a traditional Bavarian beer hall.
Holiday Inn Express Munich City West (or similar)
Included Meals: Breakfast

 

Day 4: MUNICH TO VENICE VIA INNSBRUCK

MUNICH
‘Auf Wiedersehen’ Munich, we’re off to tick more countries off our list. This morning we’ll climb aboard our coach ready for a scenic roll through the Bavarian Alps, past fairytale castles and rambling vineyards, en route to Austria.
INNSBRUCK
Drive through Austria without getting out to say hello? Never! We’ll pull into Innsbruck for lunch, a laid-back student city made famous by a medieval old town, an old Olympic Ski Jump & a Royal Palace.
VENICE
Ah, Venice! Fresh pasta, lilting accents & romantic architecture – we’ve arrived in one of Italy’s most famous cities. Tonight we’ll relax here, knowing we have all day tomorrow to cruise canals & explore picturesque cobbled streets.
Hotel Dollinger (or similar)
Included Meals: Breakfast

 

Day 5: VENICE

VENICE
Buongiorno! Venice is ours for a full and glorious Italian day. We’ll start exploring The Floating City by jumping aboard our own private motoscaffo boat and cruising the canals en route to the historical heart of the city. Next, you have the chance to discover hidden Venice with a guided walking tour, take a traditional gondola ride, or just explore these cobbled streets on your own. Tonight, you can choose to sign up for an authentic Venetian 3-course feast.
Hotel Ambra Quarto Daltino (or similar)

Day 6: VENICE TO LUCERNE

VENICE
With a few days left, it’s time to say ‘ciao’ to our time in Venice. We’ll never forget you, city of canals and beauty, but Switzerland is calling us. Back on our coach we’ll pass Lake Como as we cruise out of Italy and head onwards and upwards toward the Swiss Alps.
LUCERNE
With magical views unfolding outside our windows we’ll find ourselves in Switzerland, pulling up in the fairytale town of Lucerne, famous for its wooden bridges, cobbled lanes and beautiful setting against the lake it’s named after. Here we’ll visit the wooden chapel bridge and lion monument. Our other recommendation for tonight? Swiss chocolate.
Ibis Budget Luzern City (or similar)
Included Meals: Breakfast

 

Day 7: LUCERNE TO PARIS

LUCERNE
It’s been sweet, but our time in Lucerne is up this morning. We’re Paris-bound! Out with the altitude, in with the inner-city Parisian bliss. We’ll jump back onto our coach to cross the border out of Switzerland and (back) into France.
PARIS
After coasting through the pretty wine producing region of Burgundy, we’ll arrive in the City of Lights. Lamp-lit bridges, a sparkling Eiffel Tower, & evening coffee haunts, this evening we’ll fall in love with everything Paris on a dreamy night-time tour. Is it just us, or is love in the air? Once we’ve seen the most famous landmarks, we’ll celebrate our first night in the city by heading up the Montparnasse Tower for the best panoramic views of the city.
Ibis Paris Porte D’Orleans Hotel (or similar)
Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

 

Day 8: PARIS

PARIS
There’s plenty of time to lust over designer haute couture or French vintage stores, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral, order coffee and crêpes, or get artsy at the many museums of the Louvre. Just don’t wear yourself out, because tonight’s your chance to get involved with VIP seats and dinner at the iconic Moulin Rouge cabaret show. With your last night looming, this is the perfect way to make it one to remember. Get ready to go out with a bang!

Day 9: PARIS TO LONDON

PARIS
Rise, shine, and soak up your last dose of Paris this morning over a coffee and croissant together, as we marvel at how much we’ve seen on this magical journey. It may be over for now, but these friendships and memories will last a lifetime. Our last coach ride together will be a complimentary transfer to CDG airport this morning, or you can stay onboard for the full ride back to London. Plenty of time to start planning the next reunion…
CALAIS
As we pass through Calais we’ll remember the days gone by with a historical talk alongside a view of striking World War I battlefields in the Valley of the Somme and Vimy Ridge.
DOVER
We’ll make our way back to London-town, where you’ll be left to start dreaming up your next big adventure.
LONDON
What an adventure! Say a fond farewell to the group as you wrap up the trip on arrival in London.
