Enchanting Europe

Civilization in Europe has been around for thousands of years and the countries here all have the history, culture, and architecture to prove it. Of course, deciding just where to go can be overwhelming. Here are some suggestions for making the most of your next European vacation.

 

Escorted Tours

 

If you want to leave behind all the stress that comes with planning a trip to Europe, an expertly-led guided tour is the way to go. On an escorted tour you can leave all the logistic hassles to the professionals, like driving on the left side of the road in Ireland and the United Kingdom. The same goes for navigating the Metro in Paris and menu translations in Italy, Spain, or Germany. You’ll gain peace of mind as all the travel logistics are arranged for you. 

 

Keep in mind that picking the right hotel in a foreign country can also be a hard feat. Escorted tour companies pre-screen hotels for the best location and the perfect amenities for the best fit. And the icing on the cake? A good number of meals at highly sought after restaurants are included in your tour.

 

Escorted tours offer personalized, custom itineraries designed for even the most discriminating traveler. From seeing the major sites of a destination to traveling off the beaten path, there is a tour to fit virtually every interest and budget.

 

Sailing the High Seas

 

Cruising the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas offers an unforgettable way to see Europe in comfort and ease. Many cruise itineraries include European ports in Greece, Italy, France, Spain as well as a copious amount of small islands in between. While on board, you’ll not have a care in the world as you sail to multiple destinations all while enjoying a diverse selection of entertainment, the finest wines and spirits, superb gastronomic delights, and exceptional service – all included for one price. And you only have to unpack once!

 

Whether you want to experience the hustle and bustle of city life in Rome or take in the historic sites in Athens (or both!), cruising is the perfect way to see a variety of places in one vacation. Cruising is ideal for nearly everyone, from a couple looking for a romantic getaway to a family celebrating a special occasion. Knowledgeable experts are on hand to lead guided land excursions for one-of-a-kind experiences you won’t find anywhere else.

 

River Cruising

 

Sailing Europe’s iconic rivers and immersing yourself in the charm of the Old World with a stress-free river cruise is one of the world’s most memorable travel experiences. River cruise ships offer all the amenities of a land-based resort, but provide the opportunity to visit a variety of cities and villages.

 

Discover Paris while sailing on the sublime Seine, or experience the charming cultural capitals situated along the Danube, and visit stately castles while drifting on the Rhine. No matter where you disembark, you will be only steps away from discovering the many gems of Europe.

 

While on board, gourmet dishes are crafted by some of the world’s finest chefs. You’ll not only savor authentic regional specialties, but some of your favorites from back home.

 

The destination options are plentiful when it comes to European river cruises. Itineraries on the Danube, Douro, Rhine, Rhone and Seine range in length, but no matter which you choose, you are guaranteed to see fascinating historic treasures, natural beauty and colorful towns.

 

Tailor-Made for You

 

If setting your own schedule, enjoying more free time, and discovering things on your own appeals to you, then an independent travel vacation just might be the way to go. Recognizing that some travelers are looking for more independence on how they spend their day, your travel professional can assist you in finding and independent travel company that can help arrange all of the travel logistics for you, such as car rental, hotels, discounted fees for sightseeing, and more.

 

Everything will be carefully selected for you and will be based on where you would like to visit, the length of your stay, and the type of accommodations you prefer. All you need to do is leave the planning, arranging, and coordinating to the professionals as they create the perfect vacation package to fit your needs.

 

Riding the Rails

 

Europe is a delightfully diverse and expansive area of the world, home to everything from ancient Stonehenge to the leafy vineyards of Italy. Thankfully, rail travel connects those places and nearly everywhere in between – and even beyond. Rail travel allows you to see many destinations throughout Europe that are far apart, so consider combining your must-see destinations while relaxing on board one of Europe’s finest trains with a cocktail in hand.

 

There are a wide variety of rail tours that are available to satisfy even the most traveled person. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the journey in the comfort of a luxurious seat while watching the world slip by.

 

Saying “I do!”

 

If wedding bells are in your future, consider escaping to Europe for the destination wedding of your dreams. From romantic Paris to the idyllic beaches of Greece, a European destination wedding can help you save money and reduce stress, as well as bring family and friends together to share your special day.

 

Most ocean and river cruise ships, and hotels, offer personalized wedding packages to ease planning and maximize romance. You’ll experience a laid-back environment perfectly paired with a beautiful setting. Whether you are in search of a traditional wedding, vow renewal, LGBTQ-friendly ceremony, honeymoon, or just want to celebrate your love for one another, a destination wedding celebration in Europe will be one that you and your guests will never forget!
