Your Itinerary:

Day 1 Budapest, Hungary
Our trip begins this evening in Hungary's grand capital, Budapest, as we meet our Trip Leader and new travel pals for a group powwow. Budapest is situated on the banks of the mighty River Danube, and is home to sights such as Heroes' Square, Parliament House, Buda Castle and main boulevard Andrássy út. Get to know your fellow travellers over a mouth-watering Hungarian feast in a local restaurant, and then kick your feet up in your comfy hotel.

Meals:

Dinner

Day 2 Budapest
Free day = put down your Rubik’s Cube and take on a city with enough baroque, neoclassical and art nouveau architecture to keep you puzzled for hours. Need ideas? Take to the waters at the Gellért Baths and don’t leave til you’re pruny. There are 80+ thermal springs in Budapest but this is its most famous. Wave pool, anyone?! Indulge in a spa treatment then visit the Buda Castle or House of Terror Museum. Tonight, hang with the hipsters and drink local fruit brandy at one of the original ruin bars.

Meals:

Breakfast

Day 3 Budapest to Krakow, Poland
Reflect on the ride to our next stop to meet Poland's beating heart – and the largest medieval town square in Europe. Get your bearings with a walk around Wawel Castle and ogle at the world's oldest shopping mall. Legend has it a dragon had to be smited in order for Krakow to be built (with a sulphur-stuffed lamb as bait). Bit tougher than the usual council approvals, no?

Breakfast

Day 4 Krakow
Get all up in the streets of Krakow today and let the statement, "Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire" really sink in at Oskar Schindler's factory. Visit a centuries-old synagogue, discover the city's inner-hipster in the Jewish district and shop for Amber in the UNESCO World Heritage listed Cloth Hall. Your day, your choice.

Meals:

Breakfast

Day 5 Krakow to Prague, Czech Republic
Pay your respects and learn more about the Holocaust at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Next up: the medieval beauty of Prague. Fuel up on trdelník (pastry deliciousness) before a walking tour amongst spires and cobblestone streets. Suss out the castle deemed worthy by Guinness World Records as being the largest ancient castle in the world, cross medieval Charles Bridge and watch 'Death' toll the hour on an astronomical clock that's over 600 years old. After dinner, get cosy in a café with hot chocolate so thick you can stand a spoon in it or slip into an absinthe bar to meet the green fairy.

Day 6 Prague
Channel your inner bohemian and seek out the John Lennon memorial wall to start your free day. Soak up some more Czech history at the National Museum or Communist Museum or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a marionette puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it). Snap a selfie at Prague’s own Eiffel Tower, visit The Museum of Miniatures, eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square and drink beer. Really. Good. Beer.

Meals:

Breakfast

Day 7 Prague
Our trip is ending, but that doesn’t mean your time here has to. Get in touch with your boho side and stay longer to hit a high note at a jazz club, circle Wenceslas Square or reserve tickets to a show at the Prague State Opera House.
