Itinerary

01

Day 1: London

Welcome to the much coveted capital of the United Kingdom. The next few days will be spent slinking through the streets of Soho & purring through boutiques in Shoreditch. This afternoon we’ll get acquainted with the rest of the Contiki folk & hear the finer details of the 12-days ahead. We’ll head out for a walking tour of some of London’s best sites, followed by dinner & some time to check out what’s cracking in Covent Garden.

02

Day 2: London

Taking to two wheels, we'll explore London's iconic streets by pushbike. In the afternoon, opt for a Craft Beer Tour. By night we could cruise to a moonlight cinema or visit the Magic Roundabout bars in Old Street. Plenty to see, do & of course munch in London's edgy East.

03

Day 3: London

The city is well & truly yours for the taking today. Your free time could be spent sifting through treasures in the antique stores of Notting Hill, icon hopping from one landmark to another, or why not jump on the London Eye.

04

Day 4: London to Paris

Rising & shining, we’ll grab our last London lattes before making tracks to the elegant rose that is Paris.Departing England and setting sail for the continent- we’ll marvel at the chalky white cliffs of Dover en route to the French capital.We'll arrive in the chic capital & waste no time settling into the parisian grind. We'll dine in the Latin Quarter & learn about some of the most famous sites from our Trip Manager.

05

Day 5: Paris

Today, we'll be soaring 210-metres above the ground at the Montparnasse Tower, where the incredible views of Paris can be enjoyed from every angle. Save some space at lunch, as this afternoon is all about traditional French indulgence in the form of a Patiesserie tour. After eating our bodyweight in éclairs, brioche & macarons, we'll top our day off with a show at the Moulin Rouge.

06

Day 6: Paris

Our final day in Paris, so how do we see out the sity in style? A gastonomy tour, of course. Sweet treats and local delicasies polished off, why not carry on the eating theme with a picnic of fromage & vino in Montmatre. Tonight, we laugh until our stomachs hurt with a theatre show that centred around traditional French characters.

07

Day 7: Paris to Amsterdam via Belgium

With Paris now taking up a sizable pocket of our hearts, we’ll move upstream in search of the Netherlands unconventional capital.Arriving in Amsterdam we’ll be greeted by all the expected trademarks, & begin scurrying past them to find the soul of the city.

08

Day 8: Amsterdam

Today we’ll tackle Amsterdam in a most acceptable fashion, grabbing pushbikes & cycling through the city’s picture perfect canals. Although we’re in one of Europe’s most alternative cities, viewing tulip gardens & decedent cheese samplings will not be out of the question.

09

Day 9: Amsterdam

Today we suggest getting your scream on at the Tower Swing, then easing the jitters with a curtsey to the cocktail skills at House of Bols. The Van Gogh Museum or Albert Cyup Market are also worth a visit.

10

Day 10: Amsterdam to Berlin

Feeling sufficiently enamoured by the multidimensional city of Amsterdam, we’ll gather up our worldly possessions & hit the road. With a German club hub & culture king on our agenda, you may want to send out a few zzz’s during the journey. With more museums than rainy days per year, Berlin is a place worth knowing about.

11

Day 11: Berlin

Today we explore the city on our trusty two feet, with a fascinating Berlin Historical Walking Tour. When hunger strikes, the carnivores could spend some time differentiating bockwurst from kinderwurst to fleischwurst. Meanwhile the more vegan inclined could sample a jackfruit burger or cashew bolognese at the solar powered organic hotel of Amaranth. Who said Berlin wasn't a foodies paradise? If you're still not convinced join some locals on the awesome ‘Eat With' Free Time Add On.

12

Day 12: Berlin

Explore the city the most efficient way – on two wheels! Berlin has a lot of ground to cover so a locally guided bike tour is hands down the best way to see it all. And, bonus, the bikes are yours to keep all day! Check out Berlin's alternative side tonight with a street art tour topped off with some of the best local cuisine – schnitzels!

13

Day 13: Berlin

Today officially marks the end of our time together, but in the spirit of travel you’ll leave feeling the world is your oyster.
