Day 2 - Amsterdam to Rhine Valley

Experience Amsterdam's coffee shops, museums and cool, quirky boutiques. In your free time, wander along shady canals and pass gabled houses or hop on two wheels like the laid-back locals and bike through the centre of town.

Chill out while the coach follows the Rhine River, weaving through valleys dotted with castles and vineyards.

Next stop - the pretty, old-world village of St. Goar, complete with fairy tale castle and even a free-hanging cuckoo clock! Kick back with a glass of local wine and choose to find out more with the optional wine tasting in a candlelit underground cellar.

Travelling south, pull into the home of the world-famous Oktoberfest, Munich - a city that blends traditional Bavarian culture with a modern lifestyle.

Explore the heart of Munich's Old Town with the crew, and head to Marienplatz. It's a central gathering spot famous for the Glockenspiel - a Gothic clock, complete with 32 dancing figures and 43 chiming bells.

Then head off with some friends for a taste of tradition to a typical beer hall and park yourselves at a long wooden table. In this optional excursion, you'll feast on hearty local food, like roasted pork knuckle, and quench your thirst with a stein of one of Germany's 5000 brews.

With a night in our travel partners very own Austrian Gasthof (guest inn), there's time to do your own thing - laze about or get out for a walk in the surrounding hills. Our resident crew will give you pointers on the best stuff to do in the region and make sure you get everything out of your time here.

Wind through the Central Austrian Alps via the Brenner Pass to Italy, the land of passion!

Known as the "floating city", Venice is packed with character, crammed with hidden lanes and linked by a network of canals. The group travels on our private boat through the waters through the waters of the lagoon to visit the city's historical heart. The limestone Bridge of Sighs, the Gothic arches of Doge's Palace and the expanse of St Mark's Square (pigeons and all!) show Venice's unique beauty and way of life.

Take some time to explore the floating city and lose yourself in the backstreets. There's an optional walking tour where you can discover the labyrinth of interweaving lanes, waterways, palaces, piazzi and markets with our Local Guide. You'll see historic monuments, hidden treasures and the Rialto market - a local favourite for food shopping. Maybe grab a table on St Mark's Square and eat some delicious Italian food al fresco.

Lamp-lit bridges and cool little cafes give us a real taste of Paris' romance. Your Tour Manager will fill you in on the world's most recognised monuments, like the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower.

If you're adventurous, get right into French culture when you arrive at a Parisian cafe with the opportunity to try out France's national delicacy - escargot! You'll also get to toast the end of your tour with French

Tonight is the last night with your friends, so make it special. Treat yourself to the full Parisian night out, starting with an optional dinner in an atmospheric restaurant.
