Day 1: London to Paris
Kicking things off nice and early on day 1, we'll depart London and make our way across the Channel to Europe's culture capital, Paris. Arriving in the afternoon, we'll make for the city's famous Eifel Tower and gather for a gourmet picnic with the most spectacular view. Afterwards, we'll hop back on the coach for a city tour.
Day 2: Paris
This morning is all yours to explore the city of love at your leisure, so go and see the sights, from Notre Dame and Sacré-Coeur Basilica, to the Musée d'Orsay and Arc de Triomphe. In the afternoon we'll regroup, taking an optional bicycle tour or a river cruise along the Seine.
Day 3: Paris to Swiss Alps
Today we'll be saying au revoir to France and make our way into Switzerland as we cross the border through the Alps. Wrap up and head to the bar for something warming as you gaze over the snowy peaks this evening.
Day 4: Swiss Alps
You'll have the opportunity to hike through beautiful Swiss mountain trails today for some intoxicating views of the region, but if you really want to get a bird's eye view, your best bet is to head to the summit of Jungfrau Mountain. Choose from an array of optional extras today, from sky diving to helicopter rides!
Day 5: Swiss Alps to Florence
From the chilly mountain tops to rather warmer climes, we'll make our way down to Italy today as we journey to Florence. We'll head over to Pisa to visit the precarious looking Leaning Tower as well visiting the incredible Santa Maria del Fiore back in Florence before tucking into some hearty Tuscan food, with a free evening to do as you please.
Day 6: Florence to Rome
Start the day with a walking tour of Florence before making a move onto our next destination. Heading south to Rome, we'll stop at the Pantheon and throw some coins into the Trevi Fountain on our arrival before taking a guided tour of the city's highlights, including the mighty Colosseum.
Day 7: Rome & Vatican City
Today you'll not only get to see more of Rome, one of Europe's most historically influential cities, but you'll also visit the smallest country in the world – Vatican City. Take an optional guided tour of this spectacular place and stand in St Peter's Square or visit the truly remarkable Sistine Chapel to marvel at Michelangelo's handiwork.
Day 8: Rome to Venice
We'll make our way towards the famous canals and waterways of Venice today. To get a better look at the place, we'll hop aboard a vaporetto and view the city from the water – the best way to see Venice, obviously! Afterwards, we'll take a walking tour for a different aspect, where we'll get to stop at markets and boutique shops on the way.
Day 9: Venice to Munich
Say ciao to Italy today, as we make our way west into Germany, to the Bavarian region's capital and home of Oktoberfest, Munich. After a walking tour of the city's main attractions, we'll visit the 428-year-old Hofbräuhaus to try out some of the beer recipes passed down form Wilhelm V – austrinken!
Day 10: Munich to Berlin
Today we're off to Germany's capital to check out the remnants of the Berlin Wall, to pass through Checkpoint Charlie, and to snap Insta-worthy pics of the Reichstag building. On arrival, we'll have a driving tour of the city on board the coach.
Day 11: Berlin
You have a whole free day to yourself to explore the best bits of this metropolis today. Why not start with a tour of Museum Island, or a walk up to Brandenburg Gate? History buffs will find plenty to keep them occupied and for those seeking more chilled out daytime activities, why not take a leisurely walk around some of the prettiest areas in the Tiergarten, or visit the Charlottenburg Palace?
Day 12: Berlin to Amsterdam
Making our way even further west today, we'll leave Germany and head to the Netherlands. Having weaved our way through the picturesque roads towards the country's capital, we'll arrive in the heart of Amsterdam and take a walking tour of the city before catching a Dutch cheese and wooden clog demonstration.
Day 13: Amsterdam
Spend a whole day getting to know Amsterdam – obviously the best way is by bicycle: 881,000 cyclists can't be wrong! Don't forget to check out the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Rijksmuseum, too. Later on, we'll regroup to take an included cruise along the canal with dinner served on deck.
Day 14: Amsterdam to London
