Itinerary

Day 1 Welcome to Frankfurt!

Upon arrival you will be transferred to check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers.

Day 2 Frankfurt - Weimar - Berlin

Northeast today using the Autobahn for a stop in Weimar, one-time intellectual heart of Germany and host to such luminaries as Luther, Cranach, Bach, Liszt, Schiller, and, of course, Goethe himself. It was at one time rightly known as the "Athens of Germany." Journey past Jena, home to the world-famous Zeiss Optics Factory. Over the River Elbe for a few more miles into Germany's capital city, Berlin.

Day 3 Berlin

On this morning’s included guided tour, learn how the city is no longer divided but every bit as fascinating. Once the city of contrasts with its West and East side separated into two different worlds by a wall, Berlin has developed into a harmonious blend of old and new. It has preserved the old buildings, such as the State Opera House and Brandenburg Gate; its neoclassic-style boulevards, such as the Kurfürstendamm and Unter den Linden; and it has created brand new buildings in the most daring, contemporary architectural styles. It is once again Germany’s capital and one of Europe’s most lively and interesting cities.

Day 4 Berlin - Poznan, Poland - Warsaw

Drive east to Poznan, one of Poland’s oldest trading centers and admire its renaissance market square. Continue to Warsaw, capital of Poland.

Day 5 Warsaw

The included sightseeing tour is an excellent introduction to Warsaw, magnificently reconstructed after wartime destruction. Today, its wide avenues contrast strikingly with the narrow lanes of the old section.

Day 6 Warsaw - Jasna Góra - Auschwitz - Kraków

Two encounters with history on your southbound journey today. First, Jasna Gora near Czestochowa, the monastery that withstood the repeated onslaught of overwhelming Swedish forces during the religious wars of the 17th century. Since then, its Black Madonna is venerated as the Queen of Poland and has become the country's national symbol. In the afternoon, visit what is left of the Auschwitz concentration camp, a chilling reminder of the Holocaust. Evening arrival in Kraków.

Day 7 Kraków

This is, they say, Poland’s most beautiful city. For almost 500 years it was the country’s capital; today, it is without a doubt its cultural capital. Join the included morning sightseeing in ancient Kraków, for centuries the residence of Polish kings. See the Market Square, the Jewish Quarter, St. Mary’s Church, and Wawel Cathedral. Free time later to explore this interesting town at your own pace and mingle with the locals. Tonight’s optional folklore dinner might be the way to round off your stay in this city.

Day 8 Kraków - Budapest, Hungary

Travel through three countries today. First, south to the Tatra Mountains of Poland, then through scenic Slovakia, and finally into Hungary. Your destination is Budapest, the most lively of Eastern European capitals.

Day 9 Budapest

Budapest is a treasure trove of architectural wonders, from Gothic to Baroque; Neoclassical to Art Nouveau, but also full of history, a food capital, and surprisingly rich in thermal waters. Discover all of this and more during the guided city tour. 

Day 10 Budapest - Bratislava, Slovakia - Vienna, Austria

Journey northwest and cross the border into neighboring Slovakia. Stop in Bratislava, its intriguing capital on the banks of the Danube to explore the medieval Old Town. Continue west and enter Austria, arriving in magical Vienna.

Day 11 Vienna

Join the included city sightseeing tour for a great introduction to the major sights: the State Opera, Parliament, the ornate Rathaus (Town Hall), and views of the Hofburg Imperial Palace from Heroes’ Square. You’ll have plenty of time to discover Vienna on your own or join our wonderful optional excursions.

Day 12 Vienna - Prague - Czech Republic

Morning at leisure or join an optional excursion. This afternoon, cross the Czech border into Moravia, then through the rich farmlands of Bohemia to Prague.

Day 13 Prague

The wealth of gothic and baroque architecture perhaps inspired Dvorak and Smetana, both Prague composers. The included guided sightseeing features landmarks such as the Jewish Quarter, Charles Bridge, and the Old Town Square with the astronomical clock. Your Tour Director may suggest an optional evening excursion with traditional Czech music and entertainment.

Day 14 Prague - Nuremberg - Germany, Frankfurt Area

This morning visit Nuremberg with its pretty market square and Our Lady’s Church before heading towards the Frankfurt Area.

Day 15 Depart Frankfurt

Your vacation ends this morning. After breakfast you will be transferred to the airport for departure.

Car & hotels were not booked until I called one week before The trip & I already was planning restaurant near the hotel posted on the website. All three hotels were different then listed in the description. First hotel was not good. (Definitely not the Benson) in Portland. Very small & had to put our suitcase on the bedside table. Very limited outlets for electronic devices. Also Portland is no longer a gem. Crazy amount of homeless with tents, garbage, feces & drug use in the sidewalk. Downtown business boarded up. Did not feel safe walking to & from the hotels!!!

Disappointed with GVV's trip planning. GVV cancelled our trip several times due to COVID, then increased our costs and fees with each rebooking despite the cancellation being due to a world wide pandamic and despite purchasing travel insurance. We chose their package Irish Castles and Countryside. Two stays were hotels, not castles. Hotel Woodstock was disgusting and full of children running up and down the halls well past midnight. At Lough Rynn Castle, our room was in an out building, not in the castle. The service however was impeccable. I could have planned this trip better myself.

The trip was as advertised. The Check My Trip worked well for storing and receiving information. The Hotel was as advertised except we reserved double beds and received a family room with three beds. We did receive a partial ocean view room and the breakfast was excellent. I would recommend the Cartagena Plaza Hotel as the hotel is in a great location and the beach is just across the street. I did rent a car and traveled across Cartagena. I had a great time and would recommend your company. Keep up the good work.
