Eastern Road 5 countries \ 13 days
05 Aug 2011 - 17 Aug 2011 \ This was the best vacation I have ever taken! I met the most amazing people on this tour, who I stil keep i touch with and hope to travel with again. Our tour manager, Ali, was great! She gave us a lot of information for every city we visited and she came out with us most nights to the bars/clubs. I loved the mixture of fun/recreation and history on this tour. I was also really surprised how different each city is to one another, yet they are so close together. I am Canadian, and it takes days to drive anywhere that looks new, but one day on the tour we had breakfast in Budapest, lunch in Slovakia, and dinner in Krakow, Poland! The included visit to Auschwitz is something I will remember forever. It was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. Some of the bus days were a little long. I would recommend leaving from Warsaw, instead of going back to Berlin (12+ hours on the coach!). However, Ali had games and music and movies for the ride, and the coach was comfortable so it didn't seem as long as it was. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the history of World War 2, the Holocaust, Communism, or just Eastern Europe.

London Explorer - 3 Day 1 country \ 3 days
03 Aug 2011 - 05 Aug 2011 \ The hotel (Imperial) was in a fantastic location! It was so easy to get to and from the hotel on the Picadilly line on the Underground. The added sightseeing tour was well done. I took a bus with a live tour guide and I recommend that option to the audio guides. Even though it was raining, I sat on the top level (under the shelter) and was able to see everything that I wanted to see. The included theatre ticket was a great option, but I wish there were more options for shows. The most popular shows were not included in the free ticket. The hotel room was small but adequate. The bathroom was spacious, though, with a full size tub.

9 countries \ 13 days \ from US$2479 per person
If trips were like courses at a dinner party, the European Discovery would be the appetiser. 8 countries in one shot gives you a taste of all the big cities plus some hidden treasures, so you know where to go next time! From Amsterdam to Rome to Paris, you won't want to miss a thing. In fact, sleep will probably be the last thing on your mind!
