Day 1: Arrive Amsterdam

Hook up with your crew in the vibrant, eclectic and oh-so-pretty city of Amsterdam. Once you’ve bonded with your Trip Manager and new travel buddies, it’s time to set off and explore the city. The best way to see the charming gable houses is by taking a cruise on the winding canals, so an optional sightseeing cruise is the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with the city. The rest of the evening is yours to explore the Red Light District, eat some stroopwafels or enjoy Amsterdam’s legendary nightlife.

Day 2: Amsterdam

Lucky you, you’ve got a whole day to enjoy Amsterdam! Maybe visit some of the city’s great museums, stroll the beautiful cobbled streets or head for the waters again. We’ve got exclusive access to the A’dam lookout swing – if you’re keen, you can add some epic views of the city to your to-do list. Up to you. Tonight, there’s an optional Dutch feast to enjoy, before soaking up some of the world’s most vibrant nightlife. 

Day 3: Amsterdam to Heidelberg via Cologne

Say bye-bye to Amsterdam and hit the road for Germany. We’ll stop for lunch in Cologne  a beautiful old town adorned with gorgeous Gothic masterpieces, including the famous cathedral. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the traditional Himmel and Erde – heaven and earth – in which apple is heaven and mashed potato is the earth. With a side of blood sausage, of course. Tasty, ja? Then on to Heidelberg, a buzzing university city to spend the night. Zee Germans know how to party, so get ready for an epic night. 

Day 4: Heidelberg to Swiss Alps via the Rhine Falls

Danke Germany, it’s off to the Swiss Alps. After a morning tea stop at the border, you’ll get to witness the Rhine Falls  Europe’s largest waterfalls  cascading down from the Swiss Alps to start their winding journey along the Rhine River. Don’t forget your camera. Then we head into the heart of the Alps where we spend two nights in Chalet-style accommodation. 

Day 5: Swiss Alps

Okay Swiss Alps, let’s do this. Where to begin? Start by drinking in the incredible views from your window before taking a trip to a Swiss mountain with your travel crew. Or, feel free to explore this classic European adventure town. Go on a hike through one of the many gorgeous trails, breathing in that pure Alpine air. Another Swiss feast is included tonight, to refuel after a day of activities. 

Day 6: Swiss Alps to Paris

The Swiss Alps have stolen your heart fosho. Best head to the City of Love. Passing through the gorgeous Burgundy region, you’ll reach Paris and enjoy an included dinner before a chance to explore the glittering city by night.  

Day 7: Paris

Bonjour Paris! Today you’ll check out the Eiffel Tower, the Arc De Triomphe, Notre Dame and more. You can even choose to dash around the city on an e-scooter. For your final night, you’ll tuck into a traditional Parisian dinner in the famous bohemian district of Montmarte. Later, why not head to an iconic Cabaret show? Can you do the can-can?  

Day 8: End Paris

It’s time to say au revoir. What better place is there than the City of Love to hug your new besties and declare: this is not goodbye?
