Full trip itinerary

Itinerary

  • Day 1: Overnight Flight

    Board your overnight flight, bound for Europe.

  • Day 2: Arrive in Amsterdam + Welcome Dinner

    Welcome 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.

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

    In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with fellow travelers at an authentic local spot. Afterwards, you’re free to take the party elsewhere!

  • Day 3: Sightseeing Tour of Amsterdam + Optional Countryside Bike Tour

    Get a feel for the city’s history and unique culture as you walk through busy Dam Square. Then take in scenic views of the Amstel River before finishing up in Rembrandtplein, a bustling square packed with cafés, shops, and clubs.

    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.

    Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

  • Day 4: Free Day Amsterdam

    Take advantage of your free day in one of the most diverse and bike friendly cities on the planet. Walk or ride across the countless bridges, wonder what it’s like to live in a houseboat, and maybe even stop by one of the coffeeshops that don’t just sell coffee.

    Free time suggestions

    Van Gogh Museum: Get lost in this goldmine of paintings by the troubled artist, including many of his most famous.
    Heineken Experience: Once the main brewery and now a museum, you can take a self-guided interactive tour to learn the history of this brew.

  • Day 5: Travel 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.

    Today's highlights:

    • Upon arrival, head to your accommodation and drop your bags. Your Tour Director will take you on a quick walk to orient you with the area and point out some incredible landmarks.
    • Float down the River Seine during a scenic boat ride that makes its way through the true heart of the city.
    • Watch the world-famous lights of the Eiffel Tower sparkle (every hour, on the hour after sunset).
  • Day 6: Tour Paris + New Year’s Eve Celebration + optional Versailles excursion

    Today, we celebrate…hard. But first, we sightsee—explore Paris by bus and on foot with a local guide. Then, it’s time to ring in the new year with your group.

    Today's highlights:

    • Saunter along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and stand in awe of the Arc de Triomphe.
    • Find peace of mind at Luxembourg Gardens, a collection of tree-lined promenades, flowerbeds, statues, and the Medici Fountain.
    • Hit up some well-known areas like Bastille, Montmarte, and Parc de Belleville.
    • Welcome another year with included drinks, food, and a DJ in a private event space.

    Free time suggestions

    Moulin Rouge: The original version of this famed cabaret burned down in 1915, but the birthplace of the modern can-can dance lives on. Just look for the large red windmill on the roof, buy yourself a ticket, and then send your friends the pics to prove it.
    Montmartre: Once an artists’ village and the stomping grounds of Picasso and Dalí, this charming hilltop district is now home to numerous nightclubs and the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré-Cœur. Walk its steep, winding streets for sweeping views of the city below.

    Versailles (extra cost)

    Walk through the landscaped gardens, and tour the living quarters of the famous over-the-top palace of Louis XIV. This is where French royalty reveled in their extravagant lifestyle in the decades before the Revolution.

    Please note: The Palace of Versailles is closed on Mondays. In the event that the itinerary day containing this optional lands on a Monday for your departure, the optional will take place the following day.

    This excursion is pre-book only; if your trip is less than thirty days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase.

  • Day 7: Free Day in Paris

    Oui! A free day to wander the city of love. Get inspired, get lost, and get your fill of new foods like coq au vin (chicken braised with wine). At over 40 square miles there’s always something new to discover, so keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready.

    Free time suggestions

    Catacombs of Paris: Dare to step through the “Gate of Hell” on your way below the city streets and you’ll be greeted by walls of stacked skulls and bones of past Parisians. Once only considered a novelty, this absolutely eerie attraction is now designated as an official museum.
    The Louvre: Once the home of French kings and now the largest art museum in the world, this astounding collection of art from around the world is not to be missed. From the Palace to the glass Pyramid to the Mona Lisa itself, you’ll be surrounded by history and beauty at every turn.

  • Day 8: Travel to London + Sightseeing Tour

    Go big and go British today as you travel to England. A local guide will take you all around town for the inside scoop on London’s iconic palaces, churches, castles, and yes, even a big old clock.

    Today's highlights:

    • Dive into thousands of years of London’s secrets with a local guide.
    • Immerse yourself in London’s rich history at gorgeous landmarks from the Tower of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral to Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament.
    • Wave hello to Big Ben, the bell inside the famous clock tower.
  • Day 9: Free Day in London + Optional London Eye & Tea

    Use this free day to check out and check off anything you may have missed in one of the world’s greatest cities. Dive in and act like you belong with some local slang, try some famous fare (looking at you fish and chips), and explore until you’re too knackered (tired) to continue.

    Free time suggestions

    Abbey Road: Want to walk in the literal footsteps of greatness? Head over to this famous thoroughfare and make your way to its southeastern end. There you’ll find the studio where the Beatles recorded their final studio album and the crosswalk they made famous with its cover.
    Harrods: You don’t have to buy a ticket to get into the world’s most famous department store, but once you’re inside, all bets are off. At over a million square feet with 330 departments, its motto of “all things for all people, everywhere” makes complete sense.

    London Eye & Tea (extra cost)

    Ride Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel for panoramic views before enjoying a traditional English tea.

    This excursion is pre-book only; if your trip is less than fourteen days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase.

  • Day 10: Free Day in London

    Enjoy your last day as you please. After all, London is brimming with famous sights, fun pubs, great music venues and endless things to do.

    Then share some last laughs (and maybe shed a few tears) at an included farewell dinner with the group.

    Free time suggestions

    The British Museum: Discover over 2 million years of human history at this free museum. With over 8 million objects and counting, it is one of the largest and most comprehensive collections in existence—so don’t expect to see it all.
    Westminster Abbey: This historic, royal church is the traditional place of coronation and burial for British monarchs. The mainly Gothic façade leads to a gorgeous array of paintings, stained glass, and artifacts. Get yourself a ticket and you’ll be treated to more than just a house of worship.

  • 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?
