You will visit Rome, Heidelberg, Lucerne and 7 other destinations in 6 different countries. Essential Europe is a group trip which will include accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Essential. Vital. The must-dos. The unmissables. Whatever you call those bits of Europe that you just HAVE to explore, you can rely on our fast-paced Essential Europe trip to properly school you in them. We're talking Rome, Amsterdam, Venice, Paris... the big guns. But that isn't all - this trip also swings by the likes of quaint little Heidelberg and lakeside stunner Lucerne. What a mix, right? Quick maths: take two weeks, turn them into something special.

“Too much time on a coach driving. Not enough time in cities, and most hotels where awful, only 2 were decent out of the 10 we stayed in. Included activities where mediocre. Even some of the paid ones were lack lustre.”

“Our trip leader was incredible, you could tell she was genuinely passionate about travel and she provided us with so much history while we were touring each city, we never felt like we missed out. We had excellent banter with the coach drivers (and it's a coach, not a bus, before you get that wrong one too many times!) and always felt safe and looked after. We had insider knowledge of the best places to each and drink in each city and I loved having all our optional activities lined up for us as soon as we arrived, maximising the time we had. Nothing was too much trouble, they put up with our endless questions, chit chat and even let us guest DJ on the coach! It was quite a quick trip, we definitely got incredible value for our time, but when we go back next year, we'll be looking at a longer trip so we get a few more days in each city.”

“Prior to going on this trip, I was under the impression that I would get to 'thoroughly' see/explore each country. This wasn't properly specified before purchasing so there was a huge FOMO factor during my trip. For instance, we would literally only spend 1/2 a day in one country!

A really wonderful experience for those who thrive in a fast-paced environment, however, if you would much prefer to get engrossed in culture/history, maybe look into a longer trip.”
