Day 1 London, England to Paris, France

All good things start with Paris. Meet the crew, grab some supplies and hit the road early in the morning as we jump across the English Channel to Paris. Pinch yourself and Instagram your first selfie over dinner before we kick off the trip with a driving tour of the City of Lights with your Trip Leader. Home to Coco Chanel, the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa, Paris has more than earned its reputation as the European capital for all things culture, fashion and food. Now’s your chance to find out why.

Included today:
-Paris city driving tour

Meals:
-Dinner

Day 2 Paris

This morning: free time en Francais. From the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay to the l'Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysées, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list. Hop on an optional bike tour of Paris or roam the streets on your own before our gourmet picnic at the Eiffel Tower, and then end your day with an optional Seine River cruise or a #throwback bohemian cabaret show.

Included today:
-Gourmet picnic by the Eiffel Tower

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Paris bicycle tour
-Seine River cruise
-Traditional cabaret show

Day 3 Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

Little known but big on character, Engelberg will charm the pants off you with its snowy peaks, jaw-dropping scenery and delightful village feels. Famous for its proximity to the hulking Mount Titlis, expect magazine-worthy photo ops and an included dinner to satisfy your mountainous appetite!

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 4 Swiss Alps

Laid-back, alpine village living on the cards. Take in the mountain air by foot, bike or goat (if you can get them to stand still long enough). With the potential offered by these mountains, dinner will be calorie neutral. If you get a second wind, jump on the revolving gondola to the top of Mt Titlis and test your pano photo skills. Then head back down for some snow angels and hot chocolate.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Mount Titlis excursion
-High ropes course

Day 5 Swiss Alps to Florence, Italy

Yodel your way down the mountains, grab THAT shot at the Leaning Tower of Pisa then point your chariot to the land of the long boot. Make your food baby sing as we roll into the land of hearty Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence. Whip around Santa Maria del Fiore before tucking into amore on a plate, then the evening is yours to stroll along the real-life watercolour of the Arno River.

Included today:
-The Leaning Tower of Pisa

Meals:
Breakfast

Day 6 Florence

Florence has more stories than Bilbo Baggins, more culture than a Shoreditch hipster, over 1,800 restaurants and it gave the world gelato. Get schooled on the Medici family, stroll the Ponte Vecchio and get an in-depth tour of the city with a local guide. Afterwards, use the afternoon to meet a guy named David doing his best Blue Steel in the Accademia Gallery.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Florence with local guide
-Leather works demonstration

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 7 Florence to Rome

Southward and downward with a pit stop at the hilltop town of Orvieto to see the grand cathedral and dig into a wild boar panini. Then step back to 753 BC in one of the world's oldest open-air museums on an in-depth walking tour and give that bucket list a workout.

Make like Caesar (the emperor, not the salad) and work up a colossus hunger as you pass by the Pantheon, throw your two cents in the Trevi Fountain, sit on the Spanish Steps and visit ancient history's version of the Hunger Games set at the Colosseum. Tonight, you're in Disneyland for foodies. Have fun.

Included today:
-Visit to Orvieto en route
-Walking tour of Rome

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 8 Rome including Vatican City visit

Create the ultimate Roman Holiday in one day with a whirlwind of Vespas, espresso, two-cheek kisses and pizza the way it's supposed to taste. Count your blessings on an optional tour of the Vatican City to see how Michelangelo messed around and created the High Renaissance, then play eye spy with two-and-a-half millennia worth of history.

Shop ‘til you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for awesome views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness).

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Vatican City tour

Day 9 Rome to Venice

Hark! Maketh haste to whence the lady Juliet was wooed in Verona. Snap a selfie at her balcony and join throngs of lovers leaving notes on the wall (or avoid the crowds and just marvel at the ancient arena).

Say ciao to Venice from across the lagoon as we check into our hotel, have an Eat Pray Love-worthy relationship with an irresistible Italian (meal) and get pumped for living out your own version of The Italian Job tomorrow.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Verona

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 10 Venice

100+ slowly sinking islands won't explore themselves. Get your bearings on this morning's walking tour, then get hopelessly lost. Your GPS won't save you here. Soak up St Mark's Square before a quintessential gondola ride on the Grand Canal. Corny smooching not included. This afternoon, snoop the Doge's Palace, cross Rialto Bridge and shop for Carnevale masks.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Venice
-Gondola ride

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 11 Venice to Austrian Alps, Austria

Prepare your retinas for the scenery playing outside the coach windows and yodel around the mountain as we make our way to the Alps. So much more than schnitty, strudel and The Sound of Music, this day should have been sponsored by GoPro.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional Activities:
-Canyoning
-Tandem paragliding
-Skydiving
-Bicycle tour

Day 12 Austrian Alps to Prague, Czech Republic

Begin the day with a sobering visit to the former concentration camp Mauthausen. Then set the sat nav for the gothic capital. Guinness World Record-setting (and Disney-inspiring) castle spires are Prague's way of welcoming weary travellers.

Fuel up on trdelník (pastry deliciousness) before a walking tour amongst the spires and cobblestone streets. Sus out the castle deemed worthy by Guinness World Records as being the largest ancient castle in the world, cross medieval Charles Bridge and watch 'Death' toll the hour on an astronomical clock that's over 600 years old.

Included today:
-Visit former concentration camp Mauthausen
-Walking tour of Prague

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 13 Prague

Another free day for the win. Channel your inner bohemian and seek out the John Lennon memorial wall, soak up some more Czech history at the National or Communist Museum or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a marionette puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it).
Snap a selfie at Prague's own Eiffel Tower, visit a miniatures museum, eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square and drink beer. Really. Good. Beer.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activity:
-Beer tasting

Day 14 Prague to Berlin, Germany

Get acquainted with 800 year-old Dresden – a city virtually destroyed in WWII and then rebuilt – and ogle the Frauenkirche before making your beard all the more ironic in Berlin. Prep yourself for currywurst, pilsner and more hipsters per capita than anywhere else. We'll drive you around to see (what's left of) the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag building before making your food baby sing with a hearty German meal.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Dresden
-Berlin driving tour

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 15 Berlin

Shake off last night with a wander around the German capital. Optional: Third Reich walking tour and local insight into what the city was like under Nazi rule during World War II. Kreuzberg is a hit for lunch. Afternoon suggestion? Have a picnic at the historic Tempelhof airport turned public park #picniconthetarmac. Tonight: hit the hotspots on an optional Berlin Alternative Tour and Nightlife tour.

Meals:
Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Third Reich walking tour

Day 16 Berlin to Amsterdam, Netherlands

Cheese lovers, rejoice. Your next stop is a local Dutch farm to see how cheddar (and clogs) gets made. Next: Amsterdam, mayo-dipped fries and red lights. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the vibrant capital and see the Dam Square, Royal Palace and National Monument. Then: explore all that this notoriously liberal city has to offer.

Included today:
-Dutch cheese and clogs demonstration
-Walking tour of Amsterdam

Meals:
Breakfast

Day 17 Amsterdam

Join the 881,000 bicycles and get local on a city bike tour of Amsterdam's iconic canals, bridges and parks.

Day 18 Amstedam to London, England

After all the Amster-damage has been done and dusted, it’s time to hit the road and make tracks to ol’ Blighty. Soak up all the happy group vibes you can possibly handle – this is your last coach ride with the gang. #sadface.
