  1. Day 1
    London to Amsterdam
    Gather round, European explorers, gather round. Your voluptuous vegan adventure begins today. Starting out in London, we'll quickly make our way to our first destination. Amsterdam, here we come. Shortly before we find our ferry for Europe, we'll be taking in the English coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover. They owe their gorgeousness to their composition of chalk - you're learning and we haven't even left the UK! Off the ferry we arrive in the port town of Calais - French soil! Next we journey to Amsterdam! And here we are at our final stop for this evening: Amsterdam! We'll start our exploration of this city with a peek of canals, bicycles & 17th century gable houses lit up by night. Next on the agenda tonight, we'll bond over an included vegan dinner, and then you'll have the chance to join an optional evening canal cruise.Accommodation: Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam North Riverside (or similar)
    Meals:   Dinner
  2. Day 2
    Amsterdam to Frankfurt
    This morning you're free to explore Amsterdam, checking out the storybook streets, quaint bookshops and charming cafes however you like. This afternoon, we'll say 'Vaarwel!' because we're setting off for our next country, Germany. Welcome to Frankfurt, a historical haven known for its sausages and waterways. You're free to explore however you like tonight but first, your Trip Manager will give you a brief orientation (and point out some of their fave vegan food spots too!)Accommodation: A&O Frankfurt Ostend (or similar)

    Rise and shine, folks. You're free to explore Frankfurt some more this morning. In the mood for an early afternoon beer (you're on holiday after all)? You'll find plenty of vegan options here. Sticking to coffee and fresh air? You'll find plenty of that too. "Prost!”. Here in the home of Oktoberfest we'll take a locally guided tour of the city, and amuse ourselves watching the antics of mechanical figurines in the city's famous Glockenspiel. Making the most of our time in Munich this evening, we'll get introduced to 800 years of history at a traditional Bavarian beer hall.Accommodation: Holiday Inn Express Munich City West (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  4. Day 4
    Munich to Venice
    'Auf Wiedersehen' Munich, we're off to tick more countries off our list. This morning we'll climb aboard our coach ready for a scenic roll through the Bavarian Alps, past fairytale castles and rambling vineyards, en route to Austria. Drive through Austria without getting out to say hello? Never! We'll take a brief stop-off in Innsbruck, a laid-back student city famous for its medieval old town, old Olympic Ski Jump & Royal Palace. Ah, Venice! Lilting accents, lavish views, romantic architecture... we've officially arrived in one of Italy's most famous cities. Tonight we'll relax here, knowing we have all day tomorrow to cruise canals & explore picturesque cobbled streets.Accommodation: Hotel Ambra Quarto Daltino (or similar)

  6. Day 6
    Venice to Lucerne
    With a few days left, it's time to say 'ciao' to our time in Venice. We'll never forget you, city of canals and beauty, but Switzerland is calling us. Back on our coach we'll pass Lake Como as we cruise out of Italy and head onwards and upwards toward the Swiss Alps. With magical views unfolding outside our windows, we'll find ourselves in Switzerland, pulling up in the fairytale town of Lucerne, famous for its wooden bridges, cobbled lanes and beautiful setting against the lake it's named after. Here we'll visit the wooden chapel bridge and Lion Monument.Accommodation: Ibis Budget Luzern City (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  7. Day 7
    Lucerne to Paris
    It's been sweet, but our time in Lucerne is up this morning. We're Paris-bound! Out with the altitude, in with the inner-city Parisian bliss. We'll jump back onto our coach to cross the border out of Switzerland and (back) into France. After coasting through the pretty wine producing region of Burgundy, we'll arrive in the City of Lights. Lamp-lit bridges, a sparkling Eiffel Tower and late-night coffee haunts, this evening we'll fall in love with everything Paris on a dreamy night-time tour. Is it just us, or is love in the air? Once we've seen the most famous landmarks, we'll celebrate our first night in the city by heading out for a vegan Parisian dinner - included of course! *Heads up, our Paris plans might shift during the Summer Olympics due to city restrictions, impacting our Illuminations Tour of the city along with other possible disruptions. We're on it, crafting alternative experiences for your safety and enjoyment. Your understanding means the world to us!Accommodation: Ibis Paris Porte D'Orleans Hotel (or similar)

Tonight's your chance to get involved with VIP seats and a fully vegan dinner at the iconic Moulin Rouge cabaret show. With your last night looming, this is the perfect way to make it one to remember. Get ready to go out with a bang!Accommodation: Ibis Paris Porte D'Orleans Hotel (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  9. Day 9
    Paris to London
    Rise, shine, and soak up your last dose of Paris this morning over coffee and one final breakfast. It may be over for now, but these friendships and memories will last a lifetime. Our last coach ride together will be a complimentary transfer to CDG airport this morning, or you can stay onboard for the full ride back to London. Plenty of time to start planning the next reunion... As we pass through Calais we'll remember the days gone by with a historical talk alongside a view of striking World War I battlefields in the Valley of the Somme and Vimy Ridge. We'll make our way back to London-town, where you'll be left to start dreaming up your next big adventure.  What an adventure! Say a fond farewell to the group as you wrap up the trip on arrival in London.

Prepare to spend more than usual on a Contiki tour.

We were lucky that the group of people with were good, but it was a large group tour and did have some of the downfalls of a trip of that nature, like frequent breaks for the bathroom, difficulty when eating out together, and getting things on and off the coach. The trip was still great and a good value for the money.

It was a good value and the experiences included were worth it. The only part that wasn't the best were the accommodations as it was hit and miss. Half of the hotels on the trip were okay, and the other half were really nice.
