Tour Itinerary

When you think of an Eastern Europe vacation, what comes to mind? Perhaps it's visiting old churches and seeing historical sites that have been standing for many centuries. Perhaps you think of visiting cities bombed in World War II and restored to their earlier splendor. Or maybe you think of learning about the counties' rich histories. If so, this Best of Eastern Europe tour includes all of that and more with overnights in Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna, and Prague.Your guided sightseeing in the capitals includes the must-see attractions. Visit Berlin's Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, today a symbol of reconciliation; the medieval Old Quarter and the 14th-century Cathedral of St. John in Warsaw; St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna; the Hradčany Castle grounds and Astronomical Clock, built in 1410, in Prague; the Kazimierz Quarter in Krakow, where you'll visit the Remuh Synagogue and the Jewish cemetery, which had its first burials in 1551; and Budapest's 13th-century Matthias Coronation Church, coronation spot of several Hungarian monarchs.

I've traveled with other tour companies before - Insight, Contiki, Gate 1 Travel. All of them were enjoyable however, this tour from Globus completely exceeded by expectations. The hotels were all centrally located, the local tour guides spoke clearly, were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Above all, the tour director was phenomenal.

By Peter B on May 16, 2016

Far better then we ever expected especially the tour director and the impressive hotels. In every city the historic/old town was walking distance. The trip was like taking a three-credit history course on World War II and Eastern Europe, without tests and a term paper. Our first tour like this and it was outstanding.

By Madeline V on Aug 31, 2015

good Globus tour and good local guides

By Elwyn K on Aug 10, 2015

Hotel rooms with very deep tubs /showers and no safety handles in many of them only one hotel room on the trip had a walk in shower. Hotel room in Vienna very big disappointment,extermely small room and even a smaller bathroom.Had to change currency several times because not all countries take the euro. Tours were great, tour director even better and local guides very good in most cases.

By Byron S on Aug 26, 2013

Usually Globus hotels are very centrally located; however, in Vienna and Prague the hotels were quite far from tourist attractions, Old Town, etc. Our tour guide was excellent. One of the most fun tours I have been on due to where we visited, our director, and the other people on the tour.

By Paul T on May 20, 2013

Had a great trip and we will travel again with Globus in the future.

By Arsenio T on Jun 18, 2012

Arcadia Royal Warsaw Poland is quite a distance from the main center. Exploring Warsaw will require additional effort to get to the City main center. Century Old Town Prague room in Czech Republic is small. It is quite inconvenient, very little room to store the luggage.

By Alyce G on May 30, 2011

Our tour guide was the greatest, along with our driver.

By Lucille B on Oct 04, 2010

Our tour director was the greatest. The same goes for our bus driver. Tour guides in all the cities we visited were knowledgeable and pleasant given the challenge to keep tabs on 40 people!
