Dates and prices

Prices presented are per person based on dual occupancy and include: first-class hotels with three meals per day (one meal on arrival and departure days), airport transfers on arrival and departure days, transportation with refreshments throughout the tour, museum entries and tour guiding. Our all-inclusive structure allows us to fill the days with more activities, especially considering the lack of dining options in many places. For these reasons, prices that exclude meals are unavailable. Triple room rates are available upon request.

All of our tours are offered at all-inclusive prices. We offer a discount from the list price to early-bird shoppers who complete payment three months in advance. A 10% deposit is required to secure space on the tour. There is also an option to book at the non-refundable rate, which affords the passenger a larger discount from the list price, but the full cost of the tour must be paid at the time of booking and no later than March 1 of the tour year. The two discounts may not be used in conjunction.

Prices do not include: extra drinks at dinner, extra hotel costs like mini-bar or pay-TV, costs resulting from a passenger failing to arrive at the pick-up location on time, or airfare to and from Europe. Prices are based on dual occupancy. Single travelers are asked to pay a supplemental fee of $500 on a 7-day tour, $650 on an 11-day tour, $900 on a 17- or 18-day tour, and $1,200 on a 24-day tour.
