Vacation : Enjoyed our trip immensely. Made new lifelong friends & our tour guide Kristy Power is excellent at what she does. Enjoyed the local specialists, it’s obvious they love their cities. Did every add on & while generally worth the price, I think if you couldn’t afford those extras, this trip wouldn’t have been as good. I wish Trafalgar/CostSaver could somehow make at least some of those extras, included to make it extra special for everyone. Loved each location, can’t really pick a favorite city but the river cruise on the Danube in Budapest was by far the highlight of the trip. Not to be missed.

Our only complaints: Included meals, We now Hate Chicken! While the hotels were not centrally located, they were modern and clean. There is always an exception to the rule, The Plaza Alto was dirty, TV did not work and the shower head was broken.
Response from Grand European Travel:
The Highlights of Bohemia trip you chose is part of our Cost Saver program and these tours do not offer hotels in city centers to allow a more affordable experience. We do apologize if this was not made clear to you when you booked. Perhaps one of our First Class trips would be better suited for you on your next vacation.

Vacation:
Service rating : The tour director was so kind and helpful. The local specialists were very informative. I was on the cost saver trip and found the hotels to be decent. One thing I'd like is more information from my tour director about the land we are driving through on our long bus rides. The other thing on those long bus rides would be to have better videos about the countries/cities we're going to see. The videos we watched seemed dated and very general. Also, I sat in the back of the bus and really need a screen closer to the back. I would also have to have a video that include brief language lessons to teach participants the words for basic conversation in each of the countries we visited. Our tour director told us these words, but without visual clues it was too hard to remember. Also, the internet on the bus did not work for the first two days, and then the internet amount we got was so minimal as to be ridiculous. I think we should get free, unlimited internet on all of the long bus rides.
Vacation : I was not aware what the extra excursions were until the start of the trip, nor how much they would cost. This information should have been provided in detail upon purchase, actually before purchase. The information I was given then was far too general.

Not used to sitting in a cramped space, so that was a new experience, but love the tour and the places we went. Hotels were clean and very accommodating.
Vacation : Had a great time. Maria, our guide, was funny and gave lots of information. She was always prepared. I've been all over the world, and have travel with your group only one other time, about 8 years ago. Felt like the hotels were fine, very helpful, and the driver was very good. Felt totally safe. I'm not sure that riding on the bus for such long periods were good for my joints and their replacement part, but must admit, I loved the places we traveled to. Had seen 4 of the areas before, but still enjoyed them. Could have had a longer time at our last stop. I was just there last year, and loved it. Enjoyed each of the special tours. The picture is of my son-in-law and my daughter and me.

The Polka dancing was done in a small venue; those seated with their backs to the "stage" could NOT fully see the dancers. Too much pork was served on the tour. The included hotel meals barely passed for decent meals. The Goulash demo was very nice as was the prepared goulash. Optional excursions (minus the Polka skit) were quite nice! Amy was very thoughtful & Karoli was an excellent driver.

The local guides in Hungry, and Czech were superb. The one helpful change would be for the local guides would be to have the local guides hold up a stick/umbrella something so in the crowds we would know where the guides were located. In one area a few got separated from the group/guide. Yes I would recommend this tour to others.

His depth of knowledge, organization, and gentle humor was priceless. I hope it's not a cliche but he is a "gem."

  • U.S. citizens traveling to the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Poland and Germany must have a current passport valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens entering these countries.

  • The currency in the Czech Republic is the Koruna, in Hungary is the Forint, and in Poland is the Zloty. Austria and Germany use the Euro. While it’s a good idea to bring some money for when you first arrive on your trip, you’ll usually find a better exchange rate in your destination.  The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks in the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Poland and Germany. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • If you like meat and potatoes, chances are you’ll love the food in the Czech Republic.  The country is also known for its long-standing tradition for beer.  Most towns have at least one brewery, so it’s no surprise that the Czech consume more beer per capita than any other country.  In Austria you’ll find more hearty cuisine, but nothing beats the desserts. Try delicious treats like Viennese Sachertorte (dense chocolate cake) and apple strudel. In Hungary you’ll find hearty specialties including goulash, winter salami, pork stew, and chicken paprikash. Poland offers even more rich and hearty. Be sure to sample the variety of delicious Pierogi dumplings stuffed with potatoes and cheese, mushrooms, meat, and even fruit.  And in Germany, don’t miss the variety of bratwurst with sauerkraut, cold cuts, spätzle, potato dumplings, and black forest cake. 

  • We suggest packing a variety of lightweight clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. It’s important to bring comfortable walking shoes and a waterproof jacket. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • When dining out it’s appropriate to leave up to 10 percent gratuity for good service at restaurants.

    At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity.  We recommend €3.00 per person/per day for your driver and €5.00 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 euros per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
