  1. Day 1 Arrive London (2 Nights)

    Savour your first taste of Europe's highlights as you arrive in London with a free day to experience much of what this cosmopolitan capital has to offer. Whether you choose to explore the city on foot or hop on a London red bus crisscrossing the capital, you're in for an exhilarating adventure with the best of Britain. See royal palaces, visit museums and stroll along the high street, letting your nose lead your decision on where to dine - Chicken Tikka, Chow Mein or the firm favourite fish and chips could be on the menu after a day of pounding the pavements.

  2. Day 2 London free time

    Take your time to dig deep and make the most of every minute in the British capital. You'll have a full free day to explore the city your way. History buff? Visit one of the many sensational museums. A culture vulture? Take in a West End show. Keen to sightsee? Hop on the Tube and leap between the city's iconic sights. There's plenty to do and see in London and you won't need permission to fill your day to the brim with special experiences.

    meals Breakfast
  3. Day 3 London – Paris (2 Nights)

    This morning meet your Travel Director and fellow travelling companions to board your coach and set off from London. Your journey to the continent begins today. Travelling south through the pretty Kent countryside to Dover. Board your ferry to Calais and leave the chalky White Cliffs behind. Arriving in Paris, you'll have time to explore the 'City of Lights' on your own. The French capital glows bright both day and night, but consider an Optional Experience on the Seine at this evening to make your introduction even more special.

    meals Breakfast
    hotel Novotel Porte d'Orléans
  4. Day 4 Paris sightseeing and free time

    Put the joy in joie de vivre when you embark on a full day to delve into the highlights of Paris. Your sightseeing tour conducted by your Travel Director will take you past the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe and the 'Iron Lady' herself, the Eiffel Tower. Relish the afternoon to do as you please. That could mean channelling your inner Parisian and sitting in a leafy park with a baguette and some cheese and wine, or consider a visit to the Louvre where you can view the wry smile of the Mona Lisa. Tonight, colourful Can-Can girls will entice you with their remarkable outfits should you choose to join an Optional Experience cabaret show.

    meals Breakfast
  5. Day 5 Paris – Lucerne Region (1 Night)

    Au revoir Paris. The Burgundy wine region and beyond beckons. Head through vineyards and valleys as you journey to Lucerne where a brief orientation will see you view the 14th-century Chapel Bridge spanning the Reuss River. Visit the poignant Lion Monument, hewn from rock to honour the brave Swiss Guards who died defending King Louis XVI during the French Revolution. There's plenty of time later to shop for all your Swiss souvenirs.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel Ibis Kriens
  6. Day 6 Lucerne Region – Venice (Oriago) (1 Night)

    With your head in the clouds, you’ll journey via the scenic St. Gotthard Pass into Italy. On your journey south, the soul-stirring landscapes of the Italian lakes stretch ahead as you venture to Venice, the 'Queen of the Adriatic'. The Winged Lion of St. Mark stands guard over the city. There’s no better way to see the sights than gliding gracefully through its canals on a gondola – an Optional Experience that captures the essence of Venice like none other.

    meals Breakfast
    hotel Il Burchiello
  7. Day 7 Venice orientation – Florence (1 Night)

    Your love affair with Venice continues this morning as you cruise by private launch to St. Mark’s Square and view the city’s iconic sights, including St. Mark’s Basilica, the Doge's Palace and Piazza San Marco. Stand in the centre of the square and capture the historic panorama which Napoleon once called 'the drawing room of Europe'. The exquisite art of glassblowing for which Venice is justifiably famous follows next. You’ll see master craftsmen engaged in the centuries-old craft at a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. Consider an opportunity to visit the colourful fisherman’s island of Burano for an optional meal with drinks or spend the afternoon exploring Venice on your own before heading to Florence.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel Starhotels Vespucci
  8. Day 8 Florence – Rome (2 Nights)

Explore the treasures left behind by the Medici dynasty and famous artists like Da Vinci and Michelangelo during an orientation tour which includes a visit to Santa Croce Square, where some of the most famous sons of the Renaissance are buried. Enjoy time to shop for souvenirs or the city’s famous gold and leathercraft before departing for Rome, the 'Eternal City'.

    meals Breakfast
    hotel Ergife Palace
  9. Day 9 Rome sightseeing and free time

    There’s no better way to see Rome than to dive right in, which is what you’ll do when you meet your Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour that begins in Vatican City. The dome of St. Peter’s Basilica looms over the expansive St. Peter’s Square – the impressive backdrop for time spent learning about the world’s smallest country. See Michelangelo’s mournful Pietà up close and consider an Optional Experience that will reveal the artistry and heritage of the famous Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums. Continue to Ancient Rome, to view the mighty Colosseum, followed by time to explore on your own or perhaps join a light-hearted evening revealing all the flavours that would make any Italian mamma proud.

    meals Breakfast
  10. Day 10 Depart Rome

    Get your final fix of Rome before you prepare for your return journey. There’s nothing like securing your swift return to the Italian capital by tossing a coin into the Trevi Fountain.

Our travel specialist booked our flights for us, in addition to our trip. For us being new to traveling internationally, we didn't know what questions to ask. We wish we would have known to reserve tickets/times at various places like The London Eye, The Louvre, St. Mark's Basillica, etc. Those are some things we would have liked to do while there, but were unable to get into any of them.
Vacation
We had a wonderful time exploring Europe. However, we didn't know about reservations for places like Buckingham Palace, London Eye, Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, etc, so we missed out on all of those experiences. The optional excursion to Burano was our favorite experience of the entire trip! Second favorite was going up the mountain in Lucerne!

My Sister Gladys and I loved and enjoyed everything from start to finish. For my first experience and trip to Europe, I was very satisfied and impressed with how GET made it so much easier to plan, reserve and receive all documents needed before departing on the trip. Every person I spoke to was very helpful, thoughtful & knowledgeable even whenever a question came up during the planning phase. Our travel director, Brent Cooper and motorcoach driver Pio were the best. Very hospitable, attentive to everyone and kept us all safe & sound while traveling in Europe by motorcoach. Overall, it was a great, adventurous and wonderful trip and YES, God-willing, we plan to book sometime in the near future.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you so much for your kind words and the wonderful pictures! We couldn't be happier to see that you had an amazing time!
