Cross-Border Tours

Cross-Border Tours

Travelling within Europe has been reasonably easy for quite some time now: border controls and varying currencies are mostly a thing of the past. Therefore the combination of several countries within one tour makes perfect sense, but there are still a few things to consider:

  • One way car-rentals between countries are very expensive, so we structure our cross-border tours in a way that your pick-up and drop-off will be in the same country

  • Europe is full of interesting sights: historic or modern-day, man-made or created by nature. Our itineraries provide routes with interesting stops along the way. We chose distances that can easily be covered in a day and still leave enough time for a leisurely lunch or a nice walk. This naturally limits the number of stops we can fit comfortably into our tours, but we believe that it is in everybody’s interest that your travel is relaxed, varied and provides enough opportunity to really get to know the country you are visiting. We therefore recommend to adjust the number of countries you visit depending on the time available.
