22 Days 10 Countries 25 Cities

This Discoveries adventure does all the 'musts', but also takes you off the beaten path.

"We saw so much of Europe"

Simon from New Zealand

About this trip

This grand adventure does all the ‘musts', but also does the unexpected, taking you off the beaten path to the pretty cobbles and canals of medieval Bruges and unfathomably tiny Liechtenstein.

You'll enjoy Insider moments like… hearing the crashing water of Rhine Falls at Schaffhausen, as you see people braving the famous Känzeli platform, which juts out from weathered rocks into the spray of Europe's biggest waterfall.

    Service:

    Service rating : I think it was difficult for excellent service to be provided on the tour due to the number of people on the tour - 48. The local specialist tours were not as good as they could have been due to the numbers. Also, some of the people on the tour took up more time from the tour
