Itinerary

We recommend arriving a day or two early to fully explore this world-renowned city. Stay: Hotel Ibis Berlin Ostbahnhof

Berlin is an amazing city with tangible historical importance and a melting pot of different cultures and flavours. Stay: Hotel Ibis Berlin Ostbahnhof (B)

Watch the scenery go by as you journey to Krakòw. En route, stop by the Pławniowice Palace grounds, one of the best maintained in Silesia. With free time in Krakòw, opt to explore the different neighbourhoods like the Jewish section and main square. Dip into a local milk bar for a real Polish meal. Stay: Globtroter (B)

You may want to end your day embracing Polish social traditions in one of Krakow’s many cellar restaurants and pubs. Dive into the thriving social scene over a few vodkas in one of these cheerful establishments, Zubrowka (Bison Grass Vodka) is a must! Stay: Globtroter (B)

Opt to visit Rynek Główny - Europe’s largest medieval market square; savour a traditional Polish breakfast (kielbasa, yum), or sit back with a coffee and a slice of Poland's famous cheesecake (sernik babci) at one of the many cafes in the area. Then, walk it off with a stroll uphill to marvel at the impressive Wawel Royal Castle. Stay: Globtroter (B)

If you're in the area and want to experience traditional Czech pubs, which are guaranteed to be loud, lively, and packed with locals on any night of the week, this is the place to find restaurants serving traditional Czech cuisine such as fried pork cutlets, goulash, and dumplings. Stay: Miss Sophie's Downtown (B)

Enjoy an orientation walk with your CEO before exploring all Prague has to offer. Opt to visit the famous Charles Bridge, the clock tower in the main square or a traditional Czech beer hall with serious helpings of meat and potatoes. Stay: Miss Sophie's Downtown (B)

Overall a really good trip 0 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2019
The tour was good but disjointed in places mainly with the transport between the different modes of transport. It was our guides first tour and as a result lacked experience and knowledge of the individual cities but his enthusiasm and effort to please were exceptional. Overall a really good trip that could’ve been made great.
Excellent trip - well organised, plenty of free time, and great logistical support 9 , QLD, Australia, Oct 2017
We are generally independent travellers as we enjoy diving in deep to get to know the places we visit - the museums, the history, the culture and the food. We found the G Adventures Eastern Europe trip an excellent way of ensuring the logistical issues were handled painlessly (accommodation, transport between cities, basic orientation) and we had plenty ...read more of free time for our own explorations.

The standard of accommodation was at an appropriate level - 3 stars, so clean, safe, good wifi and avoids spending exorbitant amounts for simply a place to stay. But all hotels were well located in the various cities, and some were true local gems. Most of the intercity transport was by public train which was excellent. The group was a good size (14-15) and made up of all very compatible people of varying ages and interests. Sometimes we did activities during the day with some of the tour members who had similar interests, sometimes we undertook our own activities. Evening meals were frequently as a group but there were plenty of evenings when members did their own thing.

The tour CEO provided basic orientation to the relevant cities and some suggestions on activities and then we did our own thing. G Adventures included local guides in Warsaw and Vienna who were excellent and extremely informative. So, in summary, we found the tour provided us with an excellent balance of guidance and logistical support but freedom to pursue our own interests.We found it useful booking through Global Journeys so that we had a local contact point who can access a wide range of travel options - no doubt there will be many times in future we will use them for other adventures and trips.
