  1. Day 1 Arrive Frankfurt (1 Night)

    Don't let the glass and steel skyscrapers deceive you. At its heart, Frankfurt's high-powered business hub communes with a warm medieval centre where half-timbered buildings and tiny taverns line cobbled lanes and the aroma of apple cider lingers around every turn. Here 'Mainhatten' meets medieval charm. After checking in, your Travel Director will lead an orientation tour around the city's dynamic financial centre and medieval Römerberg. See the Römer, which has served as Frankfurt's city hall since the 15th century and admire the medieval architecture that has been lovingly restored after World War II.

    hotel Mercure Airport Neu Isenburg
  2. Day 2 Frankfurt – Berlin (2 Nights)

    Leaving the high-rises behind, you'll journey across the northern plains of Germany to the multikulti liberal powerhouse that is Berlin. This bold capital wears its grittiness for all to see - edgy street art adorns the city's ever-evolving façades and street food markets reveal a cosmopolitan line-up of cultures and cuisines that make Berlin an exhilaratingly diverse city to explore. You'll have time to explore this UNESCO City of Design your way or consider joining an Optional Experience with good food, wine, beer and music followed by a Berlin-by-night tour of the illuminated capital

    meals Breakfast
    hotel Vienna House Easy
  3. Day 3 Berlin Sightseeing and Free Time

    There's never a dull moment in Berlin. This city has endured more turmoil and triumph over the past century than most, and yet its characteristic philosophy of 'let the good times roll' is almost visceral. Your Local Specialist will bring its tumultuous history to life this morning as you view the Reichstag Building, German State Opera House, Tiergarten, Unter den Linden Boulevard and Brandenburg Gate, the iconic 18th-century military monument that has come to symbolise peace and unity. Spend the rest of the day on your own exploration or join an Optional Experience to uncover the secrets of the city's World War II and Cold War past. You could choose to venture beyond the city for a dinner of German specialties in the countryside.

    meals Breakfast
  4. Day 4 Berlin – Poznań – Warsaw (2 Nights)

    Close the curtain on your spirited encounter with Berlin and head east into Poland. Stop first in Poznań, the effervescent historical capital of Poland and birthplace of the Polish nation. View its colourful market square and town hall where a curious battle between two iron goats to mark noon has taken centre stage above its clock for over five centuries. Then head to Poland's modern metropolis of Warsaw which has risen with all the invigorating spirit of a phoenix after a recent tragic past.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel Ibis Ostrobramska
  5. Day 5 Warsaw Sightseeing and Free Time

    Delve into Warsaw's turbulent past with a Local Specialist this morning. Your sightseeing tour across this 21st-century capital will reveal how the resilient Poles rebuilt their city which was on its knees after the war. You'll view St. John's Cathedral and the Royal Palace in the Old Town, then see the site of the Warsaw Ghetto which confined over 400,000 near-starving Jews during World War II. There's time later today for an optional visit to the 17th-century Baroque Wilanów Palace, once the summer home of King Jan Sobieski III, or embark on an exploration of one of Europe's coolest neighbourhoods, including a visit to Poland's first Vodka Museum.

    meals Breakfast
  6. Day 6 Warsaw – Czestochowa – Auschwitz – Kraków (2 Nights)

    Poland's pilgrimage city of Czestochowa features first on your journey south to Kraków. You'll view the Paulite Monastery at Jasna Góra, with its shrine to the Virgin Mary and home to the famous Black Madonna of Czestochowa. Then stop at the former concentration camp at Auschwitz for a poignant reminder of the horrors perpetrated during the Holocaust. Arrive in Kraków later, Poland's cultural and intellectual heart. It is in its Rynek Główny market square that much of the magic happens. Every hour, on the hour, you'll hear the sound of the medieval St. Mary's Trumpet Call, cut short to honour the death of the trumpeter who saved Kraków from a Tatar invasion centuries ago.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel Ibis Stare Miasto
  7. Day 7 Kraków Sightseeing and Free Time

    Keep a keen eye out for the thirsty dragon whose legendary demise, thanks to the clever thinking of a humble shoemaker, led to the birth of Kraków, one of the most beautiful historic cities in Europe. Your Local Specialist will share the brave tale of the city's origins as you trace its medieval walls and see Wawel Castle in whose dungeons the dragon once roamed. You'll have time to explore the UNESCO-listed Old Town on your own. An optional Trafalgar highlight later could see you visit the UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mines, often referred to as the Underground Salt Cathedral of Poland. This evening consider joining an optional farmhouse dinner and Polka party where you'll gallop around the dance floor after a meal of Polish specialties.

    meals Breakfast
  8. Day 8 Kraków – Budapest (2 Nights)

    The foothills of the Tatras loom large on the horizon as you head south through Poland, then slice through the pastoral heart of Slovakia bound for Hungary. Your final destination is Budapest, which sits straddled on either side of the beautiful Danube - two halves shaped by an exotic mix of Magyar, German, Slav, Jewish, Gypsy and Turkish settlers that have made Budapest into the cultural capital it is today. Begin your exploration of this 'Paris of the East' on the water with an optional scenic cruise on a private boat along the Danube. Against an enchanting illuminated backdrop, you'll enjoy a dinner of Hungarian specialties while you sail underneath the famous Chain Bridge and past Budapest's majestic Parliament buildings.

    meals Breakfast
    hotel Ibis Castle Hill
  9. Day 9 Budapest Sightseeing and Free Time

    Like all great capitals, Budapest's story begins with a legend, which your Local Specialist will share as you view all the city's sights including Fisherman's Bastion, Heroes' Square and the Church of St. Matthias. Take a trip up Gellért Hill, named after Bishop Gellért who played a key role in converting the Hungarian nation to Christianity. Then there's time to explore the 1000-year history of elegant Budapest on your own or perhaps join an optional tour, including a goulash cooking demonstration, to the medieval town of Szentendre, set on the banks of the Danube.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
  10. Day 10 Budapest – Győr – Vienna (2 Nights)

    All that glitters certainly is gold in Budapest. You'll see this first-hand during an optional visit to the Hungarian Parliament, followed by pancakes at Gundels, whose original recipe featuring rum, raisins and chocolate are a decadent way to start the day. Cross the hilly landscapes of Transdanubia to Györ, which sits at the crossroads of Central Europe, midway between Budapest and Vienna. Then continue across the Austrian border arriving in Vienna later today. In a city where music literally surrounds you, famous composers like Mozart and Strauss rose to musical fame. Today, this 'City of Music' can carry more than a tune as you'll come to discover when you join an optional dinner in a favourite Viennese restaurant including musical entertainment.

    meals Breakfast
    hotel Ibis Wien Mariahilf
  11. Day 11 Vienna Sightseeing and Free Time

    A free morning could see you discover why the streets of Vienna are paved with culture or consider a guided visit to Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburgs, whose lasting legacy can be seen across their dynastic capital. Your Local Specialist will reveal all the sights of this imperial city later today. View the Parliament, the Vienna Opera House, the Hofburg and City Hall before enjoying some time on your own. You'll need no excuse to embrace the locals' love of the good life as you indulge in the city's Kafee culture with a heavenly slice of Sachertorte to tame your chocaholic tendencies. This evening, the melodies of a musical Vienna are the order of the day if you join an optional dinner followed by a concert of Strauss and Mozart masterpieces.

    meals Breakfast
  12. Day 12 Vienna – Brno – Prague (2 Nights)

    Leave Vienna's enchanting symphony behind and head north to the Czech Republic. You'll visit the medieval town of Brno and pass green and gold landscapes, arriving in Prague later today. The Golden City of a Hundred Spires shines even brighter at night, so consider joining an evening introduction to this fairy-tale city. Resist the urge to retire early and crack open a cold one to quench your thirst, discovering the dry-hopped goodness for which Prague is renowned.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel Ibis Praha Mala Strana
  13. Day 13 Prague Sightseeing and Free Time

    While the rest of Europe's capitals smouldered, the enduring beauty of Prague saved it from a similar fate during World War II. You'll see why Hitler chose to spare it as you join your Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour which features Prague Castle, the Cathedral of St. Vitus and the Old Town Square. Delve into its thousand-year history before exploring the city your way. Walk along the 14th-century Charles Bridge lined with Baroque statues of saints or take a relaxing lunch cruise on the Vltava - an Optional Experience that will reveal the legends, myths, culture and hidden secrets of this enchanting city.

    meals Breakfast
  14. Day 14 Prague – Rothenburg – Frankfurt (1 Night)

    Take a step back in time during your stop in Rothenburg ob der Tauber along Bavaria's Romantic Road this morning. Your orientation tour will reveal an exquisite medieval centre encircled by a fortified town wall that was built in the 13th century. Continue to Frankfurt, where there's time for some last-minute souvenir shopping and a farewell dinner to reminisce over an epic journey across the Bohemian countryside and capital cities.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel Mercure Airport Neu Isenburg
  15. Day 15 Depart Frankfurt

    Great empires created the enchanting land which you've explored over the past 15 days. You've encountered legends, tales of bravery and unforgettable masterpieces that span the centuries. All that's left is to bid your new friends a fond farewell as you prepare to close the curtain on an exhilarating encounter with Bohemia. Airport transfers are available. Conditions apply.

Alyssa Rucker was my agent when I telephoned to book the Bohemia Highlights tour for my husband, myself and another couple. She made the entire process seamless.
Vacation
Our tour director Maria Holzamer was so much fun, efficient, and knowledgeable. The additional experiences made our cost saver tour enriched and she added to the entire experience with personal touches like recreating the spy swap on the bridge near Potsdam, showing us the movie The Bridge of Spys, recounting the history of every spot we toured, etc. I also thought our hotels were completely adequate and comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed every meal we ate on the trip and we are cooks and are used to good cuisine. We will definitely book with Cost Saver again and try to have Maria as a tour director again. We appreciated her intelligence, efficiency, and humor.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for sharing your memories! We are so happy to hear about how much you enjoyed your trip and that you are already looking forward to the next one.

Richard Norris our tour guide and Tomas our bus driver were excellent! The tour was good, a lot of cities not much visiting of rural areas. The bus drive from city to city were long but they did a good job of keeping us entertained. I felt like we spent a lot of time in certain areas that we didn't need to and not long enough in areas we should have. Overall it was a good trip.

Before our departure our region was expecting Hurricane Dorian. We nearly missed our entire vacation because of GET not being able to allow 4 travelers to drop our Raleigh leg and drive to Dulles to catch our international departure. The office was closed Saturday through Monday due to surrounding holiday with no one able to intervene on our behalf. We had the foresight to drive to Raleigh, NC, a two hour venture ahead of Dorian's arrival to await determination whether our flight would take off the following morning. Very fortunately the airport opened but at midnight most flights were cancelled. All these travel worries could have been alleviated if our initial requests had been honored.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We understand the stress and uncertainty that Hurricane Dorian posed. Our air team did all possible within the rules of our contracts with the airlines. In situations like these, it is not GET who sets the guidelines, but the airlines themselves and we are simply the middle man to ensure everyone is provided all the information needed. That information changes on an hour by hour basis so we appreciate your patience and understanding and are glad you arrived safely.

The hotels were adequate, the food European styled. A lot of free time was allocated. Some of the city specialists were difficult to understand. Two walking tours were in the rain. No Plan B was in place to accommodate for inclement weather. If you hadn't purchased the excursions you would have missed most of the gems of the toured cities. The write ups for the excursions presented limited detail. These could have been stated with more detail to allow individuals to make better informed choices. Many excursions required a lot of walking.
