As the name implies, this European tour is a sample of some of the major highlights of Europe. You’ll spend two nights in Amsterdam, Lucerne, Paris, and London, and one night each in Heidelberg and Dijon. In Amsterdam, your guided sightseeing is via a canal cruise, the only way to experience Amsterdam! In both Heidelberg and Lucerne, you’ll discover the must-see sights on a walking tour, including Heidelberg’s Old Town and Lucerne’s Bourbaki Panorama, a circular painting dating to 1881 and depicting memorable scenes from the Franco-Prussian War. In Beaune, you’ll have a wine tasting and a visit to the impressive Hôtel Dieu. Your Paris sightseeing includes a Seine cruise, where you’ll be treated to great views of Notre Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower. And in London, during your sightseeing tour, you’ll visit St. Paul’s Cathedral, where Prince Charles and Lady Diana were married.
This European tour also includes majestic scenery, such as a romantic Rhine cruise, a stop at the spectacular Rhine Falls, Europe’s largest waterfall, and an exciting ride on the high-speed Eurostar train from Paris to London. Of course, on a European sampler tour you have to taste the food unique to each area, and with Globus, you get the opportunity to do just that! You’ll enjoy dinner and a beer at a charming local restaurant in Heidelberg, and coffee with traditional homemade Black Forest Cake in Germany’s Black Forest. Fascinating sightseeing, spectacular scenery, tasty local food, expert Local Guides, and a Tour Director ready to bring these destinations to life…what more can you ask for in a European vacation?
