Day 1: London - Dover - Paris
Leave London and maybe catch a glimpse of the White Cliffs of Dover as you cross The English Channel. Upon arrival, prepare yourself for a fun filled evening in the cradle of Bohemian Paris, the Montmartre, which includes a viewing of the Sacre Coeur and exploring the nightlife surrounding the Moulin Rouge.
(Overnight Central 2 or 3-star Hotel)

Day 2: Christmas in Paris
It's Christmas Day! Begin the day with a guided walking tour of Paris, starting at the Louvre Museum, (famous for the Mona Lisa and The Da Vinci Code) and finishing at the stunning, Notre Dame Cathedral. Afterwards, relax and enjoy a festive lunch with your Expat Explorers at a local restaurant. The afternoon and evening are yours to spend as you wish.
(Breakfast, Lunch)

Day 3: Paris - a free day
A free day to explore more of the great sights of Paris – or perhaps shop for some post-Christmas bargains? Why not 'cruise' up the Seine River to the Eiffel Tower, head to Montmatre to see the Sacre Coeur, or go to Disneyland for the day. Ask your Expat Explore tour leader for ideas and suggestions. The diversity of Paris means that you can admire famous artworks, visit historical landmarks, indulge in the finest French cuisine, check out the latest fashions, cover yourself in perfume or simply just relax in a café, all in one day if you wish!
(Breakfast)

Day 4: Swiss Alps
Scenic drive past the snow winter wonderland of Switzerland. Continue into the Swiss Alps where we stay in a typical mountain village in the heart of the Jungfrau region.
(Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 5: Jungfrau - Swiss Alps
Free day to explore and take in the spectacular scenery. You have 2 full days available for skiing, snow boarding, sledging or simply a good old snow fight!
(Breakfast)

Day 6: Jungfrau - Swiss Alps
Free day to explore and take in the spectacular scenery. Perhaps a visit to Jungfraujoch where you can build a snowman on top of the 4000m high Glacier. Or a visit to the rotating James Bond restaurant at Schilthorn with panoramic 360º views of the Jungfrau mountains.
(Breakfast)

Day 7: Black Forest to Rhine Valley
Your Rhine Valley experience awaits: Enjoy a drink as the Rhine River Boat takes you to your overnight hotel overlooking the Rhine River. Sights along the way include the most concentrated stretch of castles in Europe, vineyards, cliffs and medieval German towns. After dinner, we go on a pub-crawl, taste the local German beers and enjoy the real hospitality of the locals and the pub owners.
(Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 8: Amsterdam New Year's Eve
Continue into Holland - It's New Year's Eve in Amsterdam so join us for a big party with the friendly Dutchmen (and women)!
(Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 9: Holland Tour
In the afternoon we visit the famous fishing village of Volendam, experiencing the art of cheese making. Of course, the artworks are edible and the Dutch won't let you leave before you realise there is more to cheese than cheddar. We then visit the windmill village of Zaanse Schans, famous for the making of wooden shoes, or "klompe".
(Breakfast)

Day 10: Amsterdam, Bruges, London
