Want to experience European highlights in one week? This one brings you from the eclectic and charming canal city of Amsterdam to the glittering city of lights, Paris, heading through Germany and the Swiss Alps along the way. Expect iconic sites and more than a few surprises along the way, with delicious food, waterfalls, e-scooter tours and cabaret shows resulting in the most memorable week of your life.



This afternoon we'll meet 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 this exciting 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.

Today we've got a full day to enjoy Amsterdam! Luck us. Maybe visit some of the city's great museums, stroll the beautiful cobbled streets, head for the waters again, or take our optional exclusive access to the A'dam lookout swing, to get an an enthralling and unique perspective of the entire city. Tonight, there's an optional Dutch feast to enjoy, before we soak up some of the world's most vibrant nightlife.

Saying our sad farewells to Amsterdam today, we'll get ready for Germany.
Cologne is a beautiful old town that was bombed heavily during the second world war but quickly returned to its former glory. It's the perfect place to stop for lunch as we admire the gorgeous Gothic masterpieces that adorn the town, 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 Frankfurt, Germany's thriving city metropolis with a big city scene by day and a vibrant nightlife in the evenings. Trust us, the Germans know how to party.

Danke Germany, we're off to the Swiss Alps.
