The Best of Europe with London


tour: 5165
19 Day Tour from London to London
A European tour… should include the most popular and exciting cities, the must-see sights, picturesque scenery, and a mix of culture, history, and just plain fun. On this Best of Europe tour, you’ll experience all of this and more.

You will start with visiting London, the British capital, where you could join one of our optional excursions or just spend time at leisure discovering the city on your own. From there, you’ll take the Eurostar train to Brussels and then carry on your journey by coach to discover many interesting continental destinations.

Guided sightseeing includes the must-see sights, including those that will delight history fans. See Amsterdam’s canals; Rome’s St Peter Square; Florence’s renaissance old city center with a replica of the “David” by Michelangelo; Pompeii, where you’ll see what life was like during the Roman Empire before Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD; Paris’s most famous landmarks, and much more.

On this comprehensive European tour, you’ll also enjoy spectacular scenery. You’ll drive through the picturesque Rhineland with its scenic countryside, historic castles, and charming villages, and you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the Italian and French Rivieras. Sit back and relax as you drive past the Burgundy vineyards in France and through gorgeous alpine scenery from Switzerland to Italy.

Marvel at the beauty of Tuscany with its rural villages, rolling hills, vineyards, rows of cypress trees, and olive groves. You’ll stand in awe as you witness the blue sea and amazing views on the Sorrento coast and on the legendary island of Capri, and you’ll love the green hills and valleys as you travel through Umbria to visit Assisi. At the end of this tour of the Old Continent, you’ll take the Eurostar train back to London crossing the Channel Tunnel for one more night in the capital city of the United Kingdom.

All of this and more await you on this dream European vacation designed for value-minded travelers!

Escorting tours for more than 20 years
Always thirsty for new challenges, my path led me to the role of Tour Director. I love people, enjoy sharing the history and anecdotes of the different places visited on tour. Everyday is different, and this provides me with the motivation to hopefully meet everyone's dream. I do believe that travelling is like a book, if you do not travel you will always remain on the first page. All we need is to open our eyes to the world, and enjoy every moment we have, as life is a journey.
