Europe is home to a number of incredible countries so spending just over three weeks exploring gives you ample time to explore the highlights. You’ll see major cities, quaint villages, incredible natural scenery as well as iconic monuments across 15 countries. 

This European trip itinerary provides the perfect mix of guided experiences plus free time to explore cities and destinations at your own pace.

On this tour, you’ll encounter so much to see and do in Europe with Expat Explore.

Highlights of the trip:

  • See iconic landmarks including Neuschwanstein Castle, the Eiffel Tower and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
  • Absorb the diverse cultures in a number of ways! Enjoy the café culture in Amsterdam and the imperial charm of the streets of Vienna.
  • Enjoy authentic food! Tuck into dinner at a traditional British pub, sample a Champagne tasting in France, taste balsamic vinegar in Modena (Italy) and indulge in traditional Italian and German food!
  • Marvel at the natural scenery in Switzerland, Germany’s Black Forest, Rhine Falls and Lake Lucerne.
  • Locally guided tours in Rome, Budapest and Prague.
  • Explore at your own pace during free days in Paris, Lucerne, Rome, Vienna, Berlin and Amsterdam.

Is this tour the right one for you?

  • The best European tours are ones that give you a good balance of set itineraries and free time. This tour strikes that balance! It isn’t simply about ticking sights off a list. This tour gives you time to engage with local life and culture.
  • There is a fair amount of walking involved thanks to walking and orientation tours so be sure to pack comfortable walking shoes.
  • You will have the chance to do some walking and hiking in Switzerland and Germany. There is usually a range of options for different fitness levels.
  • A 3-week tour to Europe can be expensive; on our guided coach tours you will get to experience all of this at an affordable price with accommodation, most meals and activities included.
  • There will be shared twin-room accommodation. You do have the option to book the single room option if you would prefer some privacy. 

From pubs to mountains, bustling city centres to scenic lakes, and all the best bits in between, this tour is stacked with incredible experiences!
