FAQ’s on traveling now

  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 ‘Mainhattan’ 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 neo-medieval architecture that has been lovingly restored after World War II.

    hotel Leonardo City South
  2. Day 2 Frankfurt – Berlin (2 Nights)

    Leaving the high-rises behind, you’ll journey across the northern plains of Germany to the dynamic and energetic capital 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 NH Berlin City Ost
  3. Day 3 Berlin sightseeing and free time

    There's never a dull moment in Berlin. This city has endured more over the past century than most and yet you can almost feel its characteristic philosophy of ‘let the good times roll'. Kickstart your Berlin adventure this morning with your Local Specialist, who will bring the city’s history to life as you see the Reichstag building, German State Opera House, the Tiergarten, Unter den Linden and Brandenburg Gate, the iconic 18th-century military monument. Spend the rest of the day exploring the city your way or join an Optional Experience to uncover the secrets of the city's World War II and Cold War past. You could even 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, one of the oldest cities in 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 Holiday Inn Express - Hub
  5. Day 5 Warsaw sightseeing and free time

    This morning, perhaps enjoy an optional visit to the 17th-century Baroque Wilanów Palace, once the summer home of King Jan Sobieski III. Then, dive into Warsaw's turbulent past with a Local Specialist. Your sightseeing tour across this historic capital will reveal how the resilient Poles rebuilt their city after the destruction of World War II. You'll see St. John's Cathedral and the Royal Palace in the Old Town, then visit the site of the Warsaw Ghetto which confined over 400,000 near-starving Jews during World War II. With the rest of the afternoon free to explore your way, why not embark on an exploration of the Praga-Północ district, one of Europe's coolest neighbourhoods, including a visit to Poland's first vodka museum.

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

    Travelling south to Kraków today, your first stop will be in Poland's pilgrimage city of Częstochowa. You'll see the famous Black Madonna of Częstochowa. Then stop at the former concentration camp at Auschwitz for a poignant reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust. Arrive in Kraków later, Poland's cultural and intellectual heart, and make a beeline for the Rynek Główny market square, where 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

    Today is all about uncovering the legendary history of this beautiful city. Be sure to 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. You’ll kick things off with a sightseeing tour with your Local Specialist who will share the thrilling tale of the city’s origins as you trace its medieval walls and see Wawel Castle where the dragon once roamed in its dungeons. You’ll have the rest of the day to yourself and perhaps you’d like to spend the afternoon wandering the UNESCO-listed Old Town, or choose an optional experience that would see you exploring the UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mines, often referred to as the Underground Salt Cathedral of Poland. This evening, why not enjoy a night out with an optional farmhouse dinner and Polka party where you'll swing around the dance floor after a meal of Polish specialties.

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

    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 a captivating mix of Magyar, German, Slav, Jewish, Roma and Turkish settlers that have made Budapest into the cultural capital it is today. Begin your exploration of this 'Pearl of the Danube' 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 Styles City
  9. Day 9 Budapest sightseeing and free time

    Like all great capitals, Budapest's story begins with a legend, and your Local Specialist will share all the exciting tales as you view the city's sights including Fisherman's Bastion, Heroes' Square and the Church of St. Matthias. Take a trip up Gellért Hill, to see the Statue of Liberty, the towering symbol of Budapest you can see from almost anywhere in the city. Then there's time to explore the 1000-year history of Budapest on your own or perhaps join an Optional Experience, 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, whose original recipe features rum, raisins and chocolate - a truly decadent way to start the day. The highlights of Bohemia just keep on coming as we continue our trip across the hilly landscapes of Transdanubia to Győr, a charming city which sits at the crossroads of Central Europe, midway between Budapest and Vienna. Wander the historic streets then continue across the Austrian border arriving in Vienna later today, a city where music literally surrounds you. But this city 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

    It’s entirely up to you how to explore this musical capital of the world. You could spend hours wandering the streets when you visit Vienna, or perhaps take a guided trip to Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburgs, one of the most influential royal families of Europe. Meet your Local Specialist, who will reveal all the secrets and stories of this imperial city. See the Parliament, the Vienna Opera House, the Hofburg and the City Hall, before heading out 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 chocoholic 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)

    Today we’ll say goodbye to Vienna's enchanting symphony and travel north to the Czech Republic on your Bohemia value tour. First stop is the medieval town of Brno and we'll pass through gorgeous green and gold landscapes, before arriving in Prague later today. The 'Golden City of a Hundred Spires' shines even brighter at night, so it’s only fitting to join an evening introduction to this fairy-tale city. Hit the town and crack open a cold one to quench your thirst, discovering the dry-hopped goodness for which Prague is renowned.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel International
  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 when you head out on a sightseeing tour with your Local Specialist, with stops to see highlights including Prague Castle, the Cathedral of St. Vitus and the Old Town Square. You’ll delve into its thousand-year history before exploring the city your way.

Everyone we talked to was knowledgeable and professional. They were patient with our endless questions and listened to our concerns. Transition between agents was flawless (although we really liked working with Michelle best maybe because she was our original contact and we talked with her several times).
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are thrilled to have helped you plan your Highlights of Bohemia trip (and we think Michelle is quite a gem, too)! Eastern Europe is filled with so much unique history, we are glad you enjoyed learning about it. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate your kind words. Happy Travels!

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.

The bus drive from city to city were long but they did a good job of keeping us entertained.

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.
