We have been offering trips through Europe since 2004: most of them by rental car, a small number by train.
Wherever possible we use traditional, boutique-style hotels, inns and B&Bs.
If you want to get to know Sicily, you should try staying in an old olive mill.
In the Loire Valley counts unlock their castle-doors for ordinary guests. A privilege which for centuries had been reserved for the nobility.
And those waking up to the sound of the waves outside their bedroom window in a southern English cottage want to be nowhere else in this world.
Our Europe tours are designed to inspire the discerning traveler. Below are examples of self-drive itineraries for exploring Europe in a rental car. We will gladly personalize these itineraries for you.
Berlin – Dresden – Prague – Wachau – Wien – Salzburg – Munich
Starting in Berlin and ending in Munich, this tour spans three countries. In just 15 days you will experience several of central Europe' s most magnificent cities. In Austria the tour stops at Dürnstein, an enchanting town on the Danube in the famous Wachau region, then continues on to the unforgettable Alpine landscapes of western Austria and Bavaria.
Zurich – Andermatt – Zermatt – Lake Geneva – Lucerne
Tour Switzerland's highest mountain and most beautiful lakes by train and ride the famous Glacier Express from Andermatt to Zermatt. Other fabulous stops on the roundtrip tour from Zurich include Lausanne and Lucerne. The trip can also be taken by rental car.
Venice – Lake Maggiore – Zermatt – Lausanne – Zurich – Andermatt – Lake Garda
A round-trip tour from Venice that includes not one but two inspiring Alpine tours on the way from Italy to Switzerland and back. Besides Europe's highest mountain, the Matterhorn, you will stop at three beautiful lakes: Lake Maggiore, Lake Geneva and Lake Garda. The tour could easily be amended to begin and end in Zurich.
Munich – Neuschwanstein – Rothenburg – Heidelberg – Rhine Valley
Starting in Munich, your first visit is the fairy tale castle of Neuschwanstein, after which you follow the Romantic Road to Rothenburg. A stay in 2000-year-old Augsburg gives you plenty of time for stops in some of the charming villages along the way. After visiting Heidelberg, the highlight will be a stay in a medieval castle in the Rhine valley.
