This afternoon we'll meet in the vibrant, eclectic and oh-so-pretty city of Amsterdam. Once you've bonded with your Trip Manager and new travel buddies, it's time to set off and explore this exciting city. The best way to see the charming gable houses is by taking a cruise on the winding canals, so an optional sightseeing cruise is the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with the city. The rest of the evening is yours to explore the red light district, eat some stroopwafels or enjoy Amsterdam's legendary nightlife.

Today we've got a full day to enjoy Amsterdam! Luck us. Maybe visit some of the city's great museums, stroll the beautiful cobbled streets, head for the waters again, or take our optional exclusive access to the A'dam lookout swing, to get an an enthralling and unique perspective of the entire city. Tonight, there's an optional Dutch feast to enjoy, before we soak up some of the world's most vibrant nightlife.

Saying our sad farewells to Amsterdam today, we'll get ready for Germany.Cologne is a beautiful old town that was bombed heavily during the second world war but quickly returned to its former glory. It's the perfect place to stop for lunch as we admire the gorgeous Gothic masterpieces that adorn the town, including the famous cathedral. If you're feeling adventurous, try the traditional Himmel and Erde - heaven and earth - in which apple is heaven and mashed potato is the earth. With a side of blood sausage, of course. Tasty, ja?Then on to Heidelberg, a buzzing university city where we'll spend the night. Walk up to the medieval castle and you can enjoy spectacular views of the city below, or check out the world class nightlife. Trust us, the Germans know how to party.

Danke Germany, we're off to the Swiss Alps.Cameras at the ready! After a morning tea stop at the border we'll get to witness the Rhine Falls - Europe's largest waterfalls - as they cascade down from the Swiss Alps and start their winding journey along the Rhine river.Then into the heart of the Alps where we spend two nights in Chalet-style accomodation. Once we've managed to re-hinge our jaw after drooling at all the scenery, we'll enjoy a delicious Swiss dinner before we turn in for the night.

We've got a whole day in the Alps! Where to begin? Start by opening the window of your room & drinking in the incredible view - if you can find words or photos that do it justice, we applaud you! If you're feeling audacious, opt to take a trip to a Swiss mountain with your travel crew, or feel free to explore this classic European adventure town. Go on a hike through one of the many gorgeous trails, breathing in that pure alpine air. Another Swiss feast is included tonight, to refuel after a day of activities.

On our final evening we'll have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Parisian dinner on the famous bohemian district of Montmarte, looking out on the heart-swelling city below as you enjoy one of the world's finest cuisines.
