This is Eastern Europe at its best! From Berlin to Warsaw, the history and beauty of each country will captivate the imagination. Additional stops in Dresden, a city devastated by fire bombing in World War II, Banska Bystrica in Slovakia and an unforgettable visit to the Auschwitz memorial all combine to make this a holiday with a distinct difference. Want to end your trip in Berlin? Feel free to jump on board the coach as it returns to Berlin.

Ancient history & fascinating culture make China a must-visit. Stroll the Great Wall & be dwarfed by the high-rises of Hong Kong & Shanghai. Get up close to the mystic limestone karsts of Yangshuo before being amazed by Xi’an’s famous & incredible Terracotta Army. When you’re not walking in the footsteps of emperors, see this amazing country from a different angle, like on the back of a rickshaw or bike!

Southern delicacies include chicken and ribs, biscuits and gravy, and more curiously, Elvis' favorite Graceland snack, a peanut butter and banana concoction. But here's food for thought: Our equally eclectic travel menu of mouth-watering southern destinations, nicely sandwiched between prime left- and right-coast stop-overs. Get a taste of Texas, full servings of Memphis and New Orleans, and a naughty nibble of Las Vegas, before a final bite in the Big Apple, New York City.
