Experience the highlights of Central Europe on a journey through the Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary.
Travel through the Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary and experience some of the best bits of Central Europe. From the sleekness of Vienna, and from the architectural triumphs of Prague to the contrasting twin cities of Budapest, see how history, folklore and tradition are threaded through the fabric of modern life. Visit centuries-old castles, be spoilt by greenery in urban jungles, fall in love with Bohemian fairytale towns, marvel at the artistic talents of European masters and dig into a Hungarian feast cooked by a private chef especially for you. This adventure has it all.
Hit three of Central Europe’s big cities; Prague, Vienna and Budapest. Better yet, enjoy an orientation walk in each city to take in all of the sights, find the best spots and learn the little-known facts about these mesmerizing cities.
Immerse yourself in the history and culture in the Czech Republic’s capital city of Prague. Experience Prague Castle – the largest castle complex in the world – and be awed by its 9th century architecture.
Join a local guide in the south Bohemian town of Cesky Krumlov and learn about the town’s history and thriving folk-culture. Afterall, there’s no one better to show you around than the people that live there.
Be treated to sweet delicacies just like grandma would make at Vollpension café in Vienna, where elderly grandparents bake the best cakes and share the best hospitality with their visitors. More than just a cafe, the team here are working to bridge the age gap and provide extra income for seniors.
Toast to your epic adventure with a 3-course, home-cooked, Hungarian feast on your final evening, prepared especially for you and your new-found travel companions by a local chef.
We recommend packing light and smart for this trip as you'll be required to carry your own luggage between train and bus stations and hotels, which can include going up and down multiple flights of stairs.
Summer temperatures can be extreme in many of the regions visited (over 40C/105F). Please consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
The accommodation we use in Cesky Krumlov is full of character and perfectly represents the spirit of a medieval central European town. This means that the comfort level may be slightly lower compared to the rest of the accommodation used on this trip, however the rustic charm makes up for this.
