    Board your overnight flight, bound for Europe.

  • Day 2: Travel to Amsterdam

    Continue via train on to Amsterdam. There’s so much to love about Amsterdam, from the canals to the Van Gogh to the legendary laid-back attitude. Home of the famous Red Light District and a population that consists of more bikes than people, Amsterdam is one-of-a-kind.

    Your tour director will take you on a quick walk so you can get to know the area.

    Welcome Mixer
    Get to know your fellow travelers at an authentic local spot over some drinks and light appetizers.

    Dutch Countryside Bike Tour (extra cost)

    Bike like a local into the stunning Dutch countryside. Ride through rural landscapes past picturesque windmills and 17th century villages, then enjoy pancakes and a drink in the quaint Waterland region by the sea.

  • Day 5: Train to Paris

    Head to Paris! The French capital is visited by more than 30 million people a year, drawn by the famous monuments, great food, and some of the world’s best art museums. Paris is comprised of 20 districts, or arrondissements, so there’s plenty of diversity and personality to discover.

    Evening Seine Cruise and Eiffel Tower

  • Day 6: Sightseeing Tour of Paris + Optional Trip to Versailles

    Enjoy a combination bus/walking tour of Paris’ top highlights. Your expert local guide will tell you all about the city as you see its most well-known sights.

    Your guide will also take you off the beaten path to some of Paris’ more authentic arrondissements, and give you the inside scoop on Parisian culture. Get to know the fashionistas, eccentric royals, epic revolutionaries, bougie bourgeoisie, and enlightened intellectuals that shaped the City of Light.

    Free Time Suggestions

    Latin Quarter: Around the Sorbonne, the bars and clubs here are open late and frequented by locals and travelers alike.

  • Day 7: Free Day in Paris

    Today is yours to explore! Paris is immense, yet intimate. While it can be overwhelming at first, there’s a bounty of hidden gems around every corner.

    Free Time Suggestions
    Go Subterranean: The Paris catacombs are dark, underground crypts where the city’s dead have been buried for centuries.
    Bon Appétit: French food is some of the finest in the world. Demanding customers, meticulous preparation and the freshest ingredients combine for an unparalleled culinary experience. Parisians eat dinner late between 8 and 10pm, so plan accordingly.
    C’est Magnifique!: Head to Montmartre, a neighborhood filled with street art, incredible views overlooking the city and the famous Sacré Cœur Cathedral. This is the perfect place to take a stroll, grab lunch and admire a more authentic side of Paris.

  • Day 8: Eurostar Train to London

    Ride a high-speed train under the English Channel to London. What can you say about London? It’s huge, it’s multi-cultural, and it’s brimming with famous sights, fun pubs, great music venues and endless things to do.

    Your tour director will take you on a quick walk so you can get to know the area.

  • Day 11: Fly Home

    Cheers, mates!
    Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together. Take one more group photo. Grab that final drink. (Fine, maybe a couple of drinks.) But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?
