800-680-2858 800-680-2858 Notes
  • Ages: Min 15.
  • Group size: Min 1, Max 12.
  • A single supplement is available on this trip.
  • At times local life here will be familiar to that of back home, and at times very different. Services are available most of the time, English may not be the native language, and there may be some cultural differences. Europe is a region which may be very different to anything you have experienced before. Expense, crowds, differing cultures can result in initial culture shock but should be seen as an exciting new challenge. During our time here we have come to love this region but we know that we should always expect to encounter some difficulties along the way. In some parts of Europe there are very different attitudes to time keeping and service. Buses and trains will sometimes be late, plumbing can sometimes be temperamental and waiters may not seem as keen to serve you as you may be used to. If you are able to travel with a lot of patience and a sense of humour, then we know that you - like all of us - will be captivated by every part of Europe.
  • Some easy physical activities included in your trip. No physical preparation is required to make the most of the journey.
  • Please ask your Vacations To Go travel counselor for more information.
