Tour Itinerary

The rediscovered jewels of Imperial Europe are the focus of this popular vacation, which includes overnights in Munich, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, and Salzburg. In Prague, see the tolling of the Astronomical Clock, when a sinister medieval figure of death emerges to pull the bell cord. Operating for over six centuries, this is a highlight of any trip to Prague. Also enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Vienna—maybe sit in a café with a piece of scrumptious Sachertorte while listening to a legendary waltz, or explore the inside of St. Stephen’s Cathedral with its Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Even more fabulous architecture awaits you in Budapest, where you’ll see the Matthias Coronation Church, founded in 1015, which has witnessed several coronations and royal weddings. Breakfast is included daily, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sample the local cuisine in each city. Sample the sauerkraut in Munich, savor Apfelstrudel in Salzburg, and enjoy the plum dumplings and Pilsner in Prague. You’ll also enjoy the enchanting natural scenery you’ll witness, including the Alps and Danube River Valley—amazing features of a marvelous vacation.

This morning, motor from Bohemia into Moravia and continue southeast for a few more miles before crossing into Austria. Arrive in Vienna to enjoy an afternoon of optional sightseeing.

(B)

Day 5: Vienna–Budapest, Hungary.
A morning to see some unexplored corner of this intriguing capital or maybe just to do some shopping down the Kärntnerstrasse. In the afternoon, head for the Hungarian border and, by way of Györ, you’ll reach Budapest for two overnights. (B)

Buda Castle dominates the twin cities of Buda and Pest, separated by the broad ribbon of the Danube.

Was a great tour, but be prepared for a fairly busy pace. You have independent time so research what you would like to do to make the most of it. Don't be afraid to use public transportation if you want to explore on your own, it was very easy. I recommend the optional dinner in Prague, the palace in Vienna, and definitely the Danube cruise in Budapest.

By Dipak B on Sep 11, 2016

The tour was excellent. The information provided about the places visited was ovevwhelming. The knowledge of the tour director regarding the sites visited was commendable. The tour was well organized, interesting, safe but felt too short. The tour director provides many tips during the trip that are valuable. The only item that I felt can be improved is in providing explanatory maps of the places to be visited before going there so that the tourist can orient themselves at the new place easily. The tour director often gives directions to various places before reaching there, but remembering all those instructions becomes difficult. But, if a small instruction sheet with a map is given before reaching each place, it would be easier to comprehend the instructions easily.

By Frederick W on Sep 06, 2015

The tour director was extremely personable and knowledgeable. The coach was comfortable. The excursions, including the optional excursions, were very good. Would definitely recommend this trip [Munich to Prague to Vienna to Budapest to Salzburg to Munich]. Exceeded expectations.

By Efrain G on Oct 05, 2014

I enjoyed the tour because it was very well planned and we have time for everything.. Good Job.

By Jacquelynn L on Mar 03, 2014

I've been booking all my Globus and Cosmos tours with Affordable Tours - I wouldn't go anywhere else! I am a frequent traveler and I enjoy traveling with Globus and Cosmos because I think it's a very good value for the money.

By Teresa E on Aug 11, 2013

Tour guide and bus driver were outstanding. Food was good and excursions were excellent. Great tour.

By Fausto L on May 14, 2012

Excellent trip overall. This was my second booking with affordable tours. Looking forward to my next trip.

By Dennis H on May 14, 2012

This is an outstanding tour at a very good price. Our tour guide was exceptional. This was my first tour with Cosmos, but it will not be my last.

By Ronald D on May 14, 2012

The Cosmos tour far exceeded my expectations, it was far better than I anticipated. We had a Fabulous tour director who was bright and intelligent and funny and just made the experience completely memorable. We were lucky to have good weather, the places we saw left me wanting to spent more time at each of them, the optional excursions were well worth the extra money. And in the whole process, I came away with 5 new and quite close friends! Can\'t ask for more than that. Thank You!!

This was our fifth trip from affordable tours and also we have traveled with Cosmos in the past. We were very pleased with the trip's organization, the tour guide and overall experience. It was great.
