Tour Itinerary

Learn about Central Europe’s rich history and see its historical sites as you travel through the heart of Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, and the Czech Republic. One of the highlights of this Central Europe tour is a visit to Jasna Góra, the monastery in Czestochowa, an important pilgrimage spot. Its Black Madonna, a painting of the Virgin Mary, is a symbol of the country and venerated as the "Queen of Poland." While in Poland, you'll also stop in Auschwitz to visit what is left of the concentration camp, a chilling reminder of the Holocaust. Sightseeing with a Local Guide—a local expert who knows the history, culture, and secrets of the city—is included in Berlin, Warsaw, Kraków, Budapest, Vienna, and Prague. Sights you’ll see during your city tours include Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, dating to 1791; Budapest’s Heroes' Square, representing 1,000 years of Hungarian history, Bratislava’s old town center; Prague’s Charles Bridge, dating to 1357 and one of Europe’s oldest stone bridges, and the Astronomical Clock, built in 1410; and the Imperial city center of Vienna, the city of the Hapsburgs. . In Kraków, Poland’s most beautiful city and cultural capital, see the charming Market Square, and Wawel Cathedral, which houses the tombs of Poland’s royalty. All of this,—plus stops in Weimar Poznan, Nuremberg and more —are included on this fabulous, value-minded Central Europe tour.

  1. Day 1
    Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers.
  2. Day 2
    Our first stop today is in Weimar, one-time intellectual heart of Germany and host to such luminaries as Luther, Cranach, Bach, Liszt, Schiller, and, of course, Goethe himself. It was at one time rightly known as the “Athens of Germany.” Continue through Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt all the way to Germany’s capital city, Berlin.

    Meals:   Breakfast
  3. Day 3
    On this morning’s included guided tour, learn how the city is no longer divided but every bit as fascinating. Once the city of contrasts with its West and East side separated into two different worlds by a wall, Berlin has developed into a harmonious blend of old and new. It has preserved the old buildings, such as the State Opera House and Brandenburg Gate; its Neoclassic-style boulevards, such as the Kurfürstendamm and Unter den Linden. This is now complemented by brand new buildings in contemporary architectural styles. It is once again Germany’s capital and one of Europe’s most lively and interesting cities. (B)

    Two encounters with history on your southbound journey today.

    Today’s Distance: 242 mi/ 390 km (B,D)
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  7. Day 7
    This, they say, is Poland’s most beautiful city. For almost 500 years it was the country’s capital, and today, it is without a doubt its cultural capital.

Health and Safety Protocols for Cosmos Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Cosmos' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Cosmos has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Cosmos' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Cosmos' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.


Cosmos will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.


Cosmos will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Cosmos' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.


To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Cosmos will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Cosmos' team members when with guests.


Traveling with Cosmos removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Cosmos are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Cosmos will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.


As a part of Cosmos' commitment to clean, Cosmos is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.


Cosmos has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

After trying out first several other companies for my tours, I and my sisters have decided to stick it out with Cosmos/Affordable Tours. We have been with them since 2010, so that means something. Arranging our tours with them were so easy as they have experienced, professional and very accommodating Travel Consultants and one of them is Kevin. if all your employees were like Kevin, your company are in good hands.

We especially enjoyed our tour director. Vivien from Budapest. She was a delight and made everyone feel comfortable.

Cosmos did not meet our expectations but as far as booking the trip we're satisfied, but the booking agency has little to do with the actual trip.

Although we're have traveled with Trafalgar 2 times and were not sure about Cosmos in comparison, this Cosmos tour is the best tour we have been on. The price is lower, the guide and driver were fantastic and the routing was great. Will definitely book with them again.

Great trip. I would recommend that Cosmos schedule roadside stops where sights are located instead of having tourists stand around at a roadside stop with nothing to do

We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide Anita was amazing. Our driver Salvatore was awesome. We were given so much information about where we were at each stop. This trip allowed us to leave the details to someone else so that we could just enjoy.

The trip was amazing The tour director was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The only issue I had was with my airport transfer at the end of the trip Cosmos booked a taxi to take me to airport. The taxi would arrive about 1.5 hours before my scheduled flight, too close for my comfort. No one would change the cab pick up time for me. I ended up having to pay an additional 45 Euros to take an earlier taxi when I had already paid Cosmos for transfer. The ride arranged by Cosmos was cancelled and I should be reimbursed the fee I paid.

Wonderful trip! Sofia, the Tour Director was excellent. She was courteous, funny, witty, well researched, intellectually aware, and left the impression of a native in every area visited. The accommodations were so-so. they were ;mostly away from city center but most had either a mll or large supermarket (bigger than Walmart) around. the only true disappointment was Golden Tulip Warsaw, which was dark, creeping, and scary with old chipped furniture. The 2 drivers were also excellent.

The tour was wonderful. The guide, Simona, was excellent! The tour had just 16 travelers and it was ideal. It would have been an ordeal to have a full bus at some of the stops. Local guides were good and the coach was new with an excellent driver, Salvatore.

We were very happy with our tours in Ireland and Central Europe.

Your service was excellent. Cosmos is not an operator who cares for the standard of accommodation as it is inconcistant

Since this was my first tour I have nothing to compare it with. I feel that I had a good experience.

The Tour Manager's performance was phenomenal. I never seen a tour manager worked as hard as she did. I enjoyed the trip more because of her much concern about everybody especially the group of 48 people.

We loved everything about our tour, from the Tour Director, coach driver, hotel rooms, optional tours, it was all great! We would certainly recommend Cosmos Tours to anyone.

Cosmos has really improved over the last time I traveled with them! The hotels were much better and so were the breakfasts- except for the Leonardo Royal I Frankfurt . Hotel was nice there but the breakfast was sub- par. Our tour guide was exceptional!

The hotels had NO AC,,,,, After several complaints and misleading comments from tour director & hotel staff we were told that the AC was in "Winter mode" It WAS 80 degrees F at the time. 2 Hotels only had radiator.... NO FANS or AC! After problems in 1st hotel... The tour guide assured us she called ahead and ALL other hotels had the AC on! NONE DID! COSMOS LIED!

It was an excellent experience I have a lot of fun especially at the dinner parties. I was part of an outstanding group of different nationalities. Everybody look after the other and we make friends. No complaints of any kind. I already told many of my friends about your Company. My sister wants to go. She will contact your site when she is ready. Lovely itinerary..beautiful countries.

The only advise I would suggest is to include more tours as at the end you end spending more money with all the additional tours offered that are excluded from the total price we paid. Adding more sightseeing tours to the trip would be a plus as there is so much to see in this trip. The accomodations were good. The whole trip was excellent.

The Central Europe tour was very interesting and enjoyable. Our tour director and driver were both excellent -- gracious, helpful and very knowledgeable. Despite the full disclosure of the itinerary information, the time spent on the bus was longer than I was able to anticipate and disproportionate to the time actually spent visiting the cities on the tour. Also, most of the hotels were much too far from the city centers to allow for any independent activities such as concerts, visits to museums, etc. in the evenings. In the future, I will look for tours with all tips included and more centrally located hotels.

It would have been valuable information to realize how far the distances were. We were on the bus a very long time from one destination to the next. 2500 miles....We thought that all city tours should be included in the price. Krakow was an optional. This was disappointing. All tour directors had heavy accents that made it difficult to understand. Those were the negatives. For the positives...we had a wonderful group and the sites were excellent. Thank you..

Hi, I would like to add a comment about our tour guide and bus driver. I found the tour guide to be superb. She was very knowledgeable throughout the whole tour, adding personal experiences made it very real for us. I was impressed how she genuinely looked after and made sure everyones needs were catered for. Safety and security was an aspect that she made sure we understood. Likewise our driver was competent and personable who assisted us at all times and related well to everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip with Cosmos and would definitely look at travellin with our tour guide again. Thanks

Our tour was much better than we had expected. The guide was very informed and very organized. The driver was very professional and our coach was very confortable with a smooth ride. And our accomodations way exceeded our expectations. And the included tours and meals were very good. We will be doing this type of tour again with this company and will recommend this exact tour to friends and family. This was a good experience and a great value.

One of the best vacations I've been on. The tour guide and driver were both experienced and fun to be around. Would love to do another trip with them again!
