  • 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 48 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.

Service rating : I would recommend Grand European Travel and buy thru them again. Rob was my contact agent and answered all my questions in a prompt and courteous manner. This was my first Insight tour and I will know more questions to ask next time. Would have been helpful to know the optional experiences in advance.
Vacation : Tour guide Stephen Ellison was superb as was our driver Atilla. There were 13 optional experiences at a cost of 603 Euro each. Danube Cruise, Salt Mine, Berliner Dinner and Prague Folklore were fun. Disappointed that Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie were optional. Hotels were very nice and service was excellent. Hotel locations were near major city areas and the breakfast buffets were outstanding. Celebration Dinner concert was excellent but dinner has much room for improvement. The bus was first class with nice roomy seating, wifi and stereo. Overall we covered a large area with many wonderful sights and can recommend this trip. I will add that my husband and I walked about 52 miles so it is an active tour.

Vacation : It was the unexpected pluses that added to the tour. One such was the showing of Bridge of Spies on a long bus ride that tied into our soon-to-be visit there. Another was the tasty lunch prepared by our excellent tour guide's wife that offered us additional visiting time at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Vacation : It was an excellent trip though in retrospect I wish we had spent 3 nights most places instead of 2 even if it meant visiting fewer cities.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We're sorry about the change in dates. It's an inevitable fact that all tour operators must face. We're happy that you were able to find another date that worked for you and that you enjoyed your trip. Thank you for sharing your comments.
