Further trip information

Day 1: London to Amsterdam (Netherlands). Meet the gang in London town and hop on the coach to the one and only Amsterdam!  With hip cafés, vintage boutiques, and a laid-back vibe, it’s an awesome place to kick off our adventure.  Take an optional canal cruise before hitting the bars.

Day 2: Amsterdam to Rhine Valley (Germany). Explore the ‘Dam at your own pace today before journeying through fairy-tale landscapes as we head to Germany’s Sankt Goar in the Rhine Valley. This evening, head underground into a candle-lit cellar for a taste of the region’s delish wines – prost!

Day 3: Rhine Valley to Munich. Munich here we come, but not before we’ve taken a peek at Lorelei Rock (watch out for the singing mermaid!) Check out some of Munich’s highlights on a tour of the old town, then grab a tankard, don your lederhosen, and get ready to go large again tonight!

Day 4: Munich to Austrian Tyrol (Austria). The Austrian Tyrol is calling as we head to Hopfgarten im Brixental! Check into our traditional Gasthof, before an optional adrenaline-pumping white-water rafting challenge, or tandem paragliding experience. Then party the night away at an epic themed party.

Day 5: Austrian Tyrol to Venice (Italy). Rise and shine campers, we’re off to Venice! Shotgun a window-seat if you can today – the journey is as scenic as they come! We’ll get our James Bond on with a motoscafo ride across the lagoon then leave you to explore. Top off your amazing day with an optional Venetian feast.

Day 6: Venice to Swiss Alps (Switzerland). Venice, we love you, but we’re off to the stunning Swiss Alps. Like the picture postcard of your dreams, the views just keep on coming as we roll. Drop your bags before grabbing something to eat with a cold beer – you had us at fondue!

Day 7: Swiss Alps. You’ve got a full day to enjoy your gorgeous mountain setting. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and snap some envy-inducing selfies with the snow-capped peaks in the background. Tonight, get together with the gang for some more hearty Swiss fare. 

Day 8: Swiss Alps to Beaujolais wine region (France). Leave the mountains behind and head to la belle France where we’ve lined up our very own 16th century chateau! This decadent pad has lavish boudoirs, a pool, and an on-site nightclub! Kick off with an included gourmet French dinner and wine tasting – when in Beaujolais!

Day 9: Beaujolais to Paris. Start your day the zen way with a yoga session on the lawn of the Chateau. Then pack your bags – we’re off to gay Paris! Tuck into a tasty dinner at the hotel before taking a twilight tour round the city’s twinkling highlights – ooh la la!

Day 10: Paris. Paris is your oyster today. We’ll take you to one of the city’s famed perfumeries where you can sniff, spritz, and shop to your heart’s content, then we’ll leave you to explore. It’s our last night so go out in style with an optional bistro dinner and a classic cabaret show.  

Day 11: Paris to London. It’s been a blast, but it’s time for our final journey together back across the channel to good old Blighty. Say your goodbyes back in London town and get planning the next one on the way home!
