What's included in this trip
Best of Central Europe SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Once the centre of the Habsburg Empire, Vienna is today a cosmopolitan city with music in the air and the grandeur of a golden past. Nestled on the picturesque Danube, Bratislava boasts a beautiful Old Town, and has a wealth of medieval towers, elegant castles and Baroque palaces to explore.
The picturesque medieval town of Cesky Krumlov is straight out of a fairytale. A stunning castle towers over the quaint old town, which boasts beautiful buildings and a confusion of cobbled alleyways.
Prague is an unforgettable city that has everyone in raptures. With a unique gallery of historic buildings and a charm that permeates from every stone, prepare for a cultural highlight.
The picturesque town of Teplice nad Metuji is part of a national park and home to some crazy looking rocks, great hiking trails and beautiful woodlands.
With a fascinating history and a charming World Heritage-listed old town, Krakow, the residence of Polish kings for centuries, has riches around very corner.
Creating a natural border between Slovakia and Poland, the striking Tatra Mountains are popular for winter sports and hiking - and are as beautiful as the Alps.
Budapest's grand architecture and boulevards evoke a time gone by, while glamorous stores and glitzy restaurants make this one of Europe's truly great cities.

Best of Central Europe, May 2014
We really enjoyed the trip and were generally happy with everything. There are a few issues with some of the private transfer vehicles and the rough terrain of the High Tetra hike. Eliza was very attentive to the groups needs and included herself in a lot of the activities. She organised a lot of the resturants for us. She was very much across the amount of money we would need each day in each country. Our initial expectation of the tour leader was to more of a guide but it was explained that the leader is not a tour guide. This needs to be made clearer in the literature so that expectations of the leader are not misunderstood.

A good mixture of indoor and outdoor activities. I particularly appreciated the walking tours in various towns.
