Welcome to the tour! After check in we depart London and head south to cross the English Channel to France. The coach then travels south to Paris, ‘The City of Lights and Love’. On your first evening, explore the city from the comfort of the Expat Explore coach on a guided coach tour, where you will be shown the sights of the city by your tour leader. Take note of all the places of interest you want to explore on your free day at your leisure; and afterwards indulge in the Parisian nightlife surrounding the Moulin Rouge and local bars!

Day 2: Paris free day

The whole day is yours! Why not cruise up the Seine River to the Eiffel Tower, see the famous artworks at the Louvre, head to Montmatre to see the Sacre Coeur, or go to Disneyland for the day. Ask your Expat Explore tour leader for more ideas and suggestions. The diversity of Paris means that you can admire famous artworks, visit historical landmarks, indulge in the finest French cuisine, check out the latest fashions, cover yourself in perfume or simply just relax in a cafe, all in one day if you wish.

(Breakfast, dinner)


Day 4: Jungfrau – Swiss Alps


Enjoy a free day to explore and take in the spectacular local scenery. One of the ‘must see’ highlights of this tour is to travel to the ‘Top of Europe’ – Jungfraujoch. The views will leave you breathless (and that isn’t because of the high altitude). This 4000m glacier has a beauty all of its own, and the combination of ice, snow, rock and epic views will stay with you for life. There is snow all year round, so you can make a snow man or have snow ball fight in the middle of summer!


Day 5: Switzerland to Rhine Valley


This morning we continue into Germany, where your Rhine Valley experience awaits: Enjoy a drink as the Rhine River boat takes you to your hotel in the heart of Rhine Valley. Sights along the way include the most concentrated stretch of castles in Europe, vineyards, cliffs and medieval German towns. After a tasty German dinner, why not take a relaxing stroll along the river and take time out to recharge.

Day 6: Rhine Valley to Amsterdam


Continue on to the Netherlands where we will visit the windmill village of Zaanse Schans, famous for the making of wooden shoes, or’klompe’. Then we visit the famous Dutch fishing village of Volendam for lunch, and see for yourself why Picasso and Renoir chose to spend time there. Next, say ‘CHEEEESE’ – you will experience the art of cheese making and have a nibble on the final product. After dinner a walking tour of the world famous Amsterdam “Red Light District” is the best way to begin the last evening of your European tour. You will see the canals, Dam Square and in your free time perhaps see Ann Franks’ house. Then, paint the town red as the locals do!
