Short Description

Birthplace of Beethoven, Einstein and Nietzsche, Germany offers far more to its visitors than its reputation for efficiency, bratwurst and beer. Our specialists would argue that it’s one of the most overlooked countries in Europe, its cosmopolitan cities are packed with historical charm as well as cutting-edge architecture and contemporary quirks. They’ll help you uncover the highlights of Berlin, including Checkpoint Charlie, the remnants of its infamous wall and trendy open-air markets.

Itinerary

Day 1 Berlin

 Berlin

When you land in Berlin, a private driver will meet you as you leave the baggage claim area and transfer you to your hotel in the city. You’ll have the afternoon to explore the surrounding area on your own once you settle in after the flight.

Day 2 Berlin

 Berlin

Understanding the architecture of Berlin is a great way to understand the city’s history. Today, enjoy a half-day tour with a private guide walking you through the different districts while you learn about the styles of each era. Finish at the Panoramapunkt for a 360-degree view of the city. Spend the afternoon at leisure — we’ll offer plenty of suggestions for you.

Day 3 Berlin

 Berlin

Today’s full-day tour will take you outside the city, with a private driver and guide, to Potsdam and the Sanssouci Palace, for a tour of Frederick the Great’s retreat. Continue to Cecilienhof, a very different sort of palace that played host to the Potsdam Conference of 1945, and finish in the city of Potsdam itself for a tour and some free time.

Day 4 Berlin

 Berlin

Board Germany’s expansive train system for the two-hour trip to Dresden, where your local guide will meet you for a tour. Almost entirely destroyed during World War II aerial bombings, the city has been lovingly restored, and you’ll visit the highlights as your guide explains the city’s tragic history and rebirth. Enjoy lunch at your leisure before returning to Berlin by train.

Day 5 Munich

 Berlin ,  Munich

Enjoy a leisurely morning before a private transfer to Berlin’s airport for the 90-minute flight to Bavaria’s capital city, Munich. You’ll be picked up and transferred to your hotel, after which you can check out some of the nearby museums or sites based on our recommendations.

Day 6 Munich

 Munich

With your driver-guide, embark on a full-day tour to Neuschwanstein Castle and Linderhof Palace. Inspiration for Disney’s castle, Neuschwanstein was a summer house for King Ludwig II and something of a shrine to composer Richard Wagner. Continue to Linderhof, a small, lavish palace nestled in a woodland, and then to Wieskirche, a Baroque pilgrimage church, before returning to Munich.

Day 7 Munich

 Munich

Munich has a seemingly endless number of sites and attractions to visit. Today, explore on your own — we’ll give you plenty of suggestions specific to your interests, so you can make the most of your time. You might visit the Bavarian National Museum, BMW’s headquarters or wander the Maximilianstrasse, the city’s most exclusive boulevard, lined with luxury shops and haute-couture unique to Munich.

Day 8 Munich

 Munich

Enjoy a private, full-day tour of the storybook Bavarian villages along the Romantic Road. With your driver-guide, make stops at the 11th-century Harburg Castle, the walled town of Nördlingen and the brightly painted village of Dinkelsbühl, which was used as the set for The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm. At the end of your day, you’ll be returned to your hotel in Munich.

Day 9 Return home

 Munich

Check out of your hotel in the morning and be picked up by a private driver at the appropriate time to transfer you to Munich International Airport for your onward flight.

As the hangover from the pandemic begins to clear, we are SO looking forward to our trip to Costa Rica in January 2022! From day 1 of our planning, we have received excellent support and advice from Chris and Chloe; both have been extremely personable, friendly, helpful and professional. In this period of time, when it is so difficult to actually speak to a person at the end of a phone, it is so refreshing to have instant access to specialists. Both Chris and Chloe have been always available to answer questions, while in email communication, their replies have always been prompt and comprehensive. This impressive support and service has given us reassurance that we are going to be well looked after in the final stages towards our trip to Costa Rica!

We have had excellent experience using Audley USA for tours to India and Costa Rica. Not so much with our recent three week trip to Egypt (November, 2021).

Apparently Audley is in the midst of migrating to a new computer system, which caused a number if issues: 1.) Our travel documents were basically useless and I had to redo them for the rest of our group; 2.) The itinerary did not match our travel plans, so I had to create new itineraries to use for our Egypt visas; 3.) We had not received final travel documents four days prior to our departure and were told one of our travelers had a balance due. Turns out this was incorrect and was a billing error; 4.) We had seven travelers, but the entire group was aggregated into a single account under my name. Result: When we arrived at a hotel all the rooms were in my name and we had to sort things out; 5.) There was no information on СOVID protocols, so I had to run this down for all travelers arriving from different airports.

While I can appreciate issues associated with rolling out a new CRM system, this was ridiculous. Our trip turned out excellent, but this was largely the result of EMCO, the Egyptian travel company Audley used.

We may give Audley another shot at a future trip, but will fully check out the status of their computer system. It is also interesting to note that the positive reviews on Trustpilot are from the UK. I am wondering if US customers are experiencing a lower level of service.

We have been using Audley for our holidays since 2012, mostly on trips to the far east and South Africa. The planning of each trip from each representative we have encountered has been first rate; helpful in suggesting things we might do to match our interests and sensitive to the amount of attractions we might want to cover during each day we have been away. Once the planning has been completed the execution has been faultless; we have always been confident that whenever we arrived somewhere there would always be an Audley representative to meet us and we have never been let down. The arrangements on each holiday have always followed the planned itinerary and there has never been a failure to meet the agreed timetable. Only once did we leave an item behind, at a national park lodge in Namibia, and Audley went to extraordinary lengths to ensure that it was returned to us. We have always enjoyed our holidays and come home with a feeling that we were pleased we used Audley and a definite resolution to travel with them again. Just recently we have tried to book two trips for 2022 but have changed our minds due to residual concerns about the pandemic, insurance (cost and cover) and the feeling that we would rather travel a year later when, all being well, Covid will be more endemic rather than a pandemic. The two Audley representatives, whose names are mentioned later in this review, who dealt with us on these two aborted trips have been understanding and considerate and we greatly appreciate their handling of the matter. We look forward to travelling with Audley in 2023.

Can honestly say that the service we received from Audley was 5 star from beginning to end. Our advisor Rob could not have been more helpful or understanding, as we did keep changing our minds on destination due to Covid restrictions.
I don't think we would have managed to get away this year if it hadn’t been for his enthusiasm and determination to find us somewhere we felt happy to travel to.
I was particularly impressed that Audley arrange a call on the first day or so of your trip to make sure everything is going well and also the day after we flew home to ask about how the trip had gone.
Thanks again Rob from the bottom of my heart for organising such a wonderful trip. We will definitely be back to book another one with you! ☺️

I rang on a Monday and even after a second phone call on Wednesday still never heard back from this Company - sorry to busy to talk to you! However during the one conversation I did have , how much I was willing to spend seemed their biggest interest. I wouldn’t trust this company, if they can’t spend anytime In taking my holiday order I hate to think what happens if anything goes wrong on holiday. Sorry to busy

I’ve been very impressed with Audley’s support this year.
In January they managed to find me the trip of my dreams to look forward to, and then as the date approached and the Covid implications meant that it could possibly work but it wouldn’t be in the spirit of the holiday we’d designed, they refunded all the money with no quibbling.
It’s reinforced my view that Audley is a really trustworthy travel partner.
