I really recommend this trip for those interested in culture, history and sightseeing. I was a perfect amount of time in each city to get an idea of what there was to do and see and have a flavour of the city without being too long. The driving was not too long and Dylan was an excellent tour manager. There was a party/club theme but this was optional however the location of the hotels and time the bus returned meant that it was not always possible to stay out without getting a taxi or uber back. However a well organised and planned trip with lots of WW2 history meant I really enjoyed it and would recommend.read less

The itinerary and activities were extensive and I couldn’t ask for anything more. There was plenty of opportunities to learn about the history of each place whether we did a walking tour our guide Dylan told us himself. There was ample opportunity to take pictures and I am so thankful to have met so many wonderful people on my travels. If you would like a fun filled, action packed, thorough and well looked after trip then I highly recommend Eastern Road with Dylan. You won’t be left disappointed!read less

Trip Manager, Haron, was very knowledgeable and truly loves his job! Good accommodations, good food, the parks are amazing, but would have preferred a bit more physical activity so that we were not sitting in a car all day.

European Contrasts was amazing! 29 days of travelling with an amazing tour leader who shared so much knowledge of the beautiful countries we were in, experiencing so many different things with a small family of strangers. We saw so many iconic sights, but the most amazing experiences were the Contiki stays - We would never have seen or stayed in these beautiful places if it wasn’t for contiki, and they were my favourite part of the whole trip! The contiki staff at these stays make the experience so much more meaningful! Having Greece in the middle of the trip was so nice and relaxing and it was definitely what we needed to refuel for the next half of the trip!read less

Itinerary

Arrive Berlin

Here we are in the arms of Germany, the first of 6 incredible countries we're going to get very familiar with over the next 13 days. Settle in to your new digs before we head out to start the exploring. This city is one of the world's most historical spots, where history and modern Europe come together. And let us tell you, it is seriously cool. We will dive right in with an A to Z of the city with your TM, and with all this knowledge to hand you're sure to be hungry, so we'll down some traditional German food at a local restaurant to start the trip right. This is happening!

Berlin

Make today a perfectly blended affair of old meets new. Opt onto an historical walking tour & see where many East Berliners tried to escape to the West at Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall, the Holocaust Memorial and Brandenburg Gate, to name but a few. Your Local Guide takes the charge on this one, nothing like an inside angle on a destination.  Then follow this up by shopping small boutiques and perusing the street art and pokey galleries symbolic of Berlin's creative scene, stopping to re-fuel on a beer or two. We know you won't want to leave.

Berlin to Prague via Dresden

Finishing Berlin off on an important note we see the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall known as East Side Gallery and one of the city's symbols, covered in grafitti from head to toe. Next up, we head to the border and stop at a town called Dresden.
A drive from Berlin to Prague would not be complete without stopping in Dresden. Destroyed by World War II, the rebuilt town is now a symbol of resilience, soaked in the rebirthed beauty of an Opera house, the domed Frauenkirche, & the Royal Residence.
By the afternoon we'll be Czech side, heading to the buzzing capital city of Prague. Always down to explore, we'll waste no time getting acquainted with castles, bridges, gothic cathedrals & general prettiness galore on an included Locally Guided tour of the city on foot. You'll be feeling like a local in no time at all.

Prague

Prague is yours to uncover, one ovocné knedlíky traditional fruit dumpling at a time. Grab a push bike and follow yet another Local Guide around, your knowledged up guide who will reveal the secrets of another side of the city, from the John Lennon wall to the 'Dancing Houses'. Use your free time to shop for some famous Bohemian beads and amber jewellry or dive a little deeper into the lanes and courtyards of the Old Town, and sus out a roof bar for a cocktail overlooking the city. For those that are keen for a little bit of Cold War throwbacks, you could head to an old Bunker, for a locally guided tour and a peek into life during this turbulent time.

Prague to Vienna via Kutna Hora

Just remember, with every great city we leave behind we find another one, and today we have Vienna in our vision.
Out of Prague, our first stop is the World Heritage-listed Kutná Hora. Make the local Sedlec Ossuary chapel high priority, it's decked out and furnished in the bones of over 40,000 ... humans. And trust us it's a must see in this part of the world.
What what what - an old Schnaps museum? Yes, that's coming up tomorrow, but first we have a bit of heritage to tap into with the grandeur of Hofburg Palace, the uber elegant State Opera House and the gothic masterpiece of St. Stephen’s Cathedral which we'll see more of tomorrow.

Vienna

Let's make one thing very clear: if you want to make your whole day about full-bodied Viennese coffee & warm apple strudel with whipped cream, we're not going to judge. Other things that should be high on the agenda today are Swarvoski and Schnaps. Shop for sparkly Austrian jewels or in the name of culture get sampling on the Schnaps at a cute family-run shop and museum, and see why all the locals swear it's the perfect digestive. Those who can drag themselves away from this heavenly situation may wish to pop by the Vienna Museum of Art or roam the streets on architectural observation. Tonight you have the chance to please your sense of sound with the classical music this city is famous for at a traditional concert in a real life PALACE, with dinner thrown in as well. Mum would be so proud!

Vienna to Budapest via Bratislava

Vielen dank, Vienna! We are officially in love with everything you are. We'd stay for another strudel but we've heard about these famous Hungarian chimney cakes dusted in cinnamon and we're a little bit intrigued... 
There's nothing like stopping for lunch in an entirely new country before moving onto another, this is Europe after all. We'll stretch our legs in the Slovakian capital with a stroll in the Old Town and come across it's famous statues. They all have a story behind them, and you'll learn about them all. 
Fun fact #1: Buda and Pest are two different cities separated by a river, together they make Budapest. Fun fact #2: You're going to be head over heels with both of them by the time we scoot outta here. After a satisfying day of sightseeing of both sides of the city, and all the sights you've seen or read about, down goulash and cabbage rolls on tonight's Danube cruise; you'll be completely in the Hungarian spirit of things by the time we dock.

Budapest

Those still keen to explore can jump on the Budapest Past and Present Tour and continue learning about this incredible city. The House of Terror, the Parliament Building, and some blissful buildings, this will take you on a journey of old and new.  After all the beauty and knowledge you soaked up yesterday at the church of St. Matthias, the Royal Palace and the Chain Bridge, you'll probably be feeling like a day soaking in the cities famous outdoor thermal pools set amongst Art Nouveau architecture while getting a bargain-priced massage - because why not.  Blissed out in Budapest - there's an Insta caption for you.

Budapest to Krakow via Banksa Bystrica

3 countries in one day - we can and we will! In no great hurry we will float out of Hungary with a sojourn through Slovakia (oh hello again) before we head into Poland for dinner. Ah, the life of a traveller. 
Pastel painted and manicured to perfection, Banska Bystrica is a lunch break that will charm you to no end. Make this a real box ticker by tucking into an item of Slovakia's traditional creamy, dumpling filled cuisine. 
Once the capital of Poland, Krakow is now known for its silver mining heritage and tales of mythical dragons. Tonight we take you to one of our favourite restaurants for a traditional feed, then you can rest up knowing we have all day tomorrow to get our Polish on.

Krakow

A Jewish Quarter, a jaw-dropping castle & museums aplenty are just some of the relics found in the relatively untouched Krakow. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed centre should occupy your time with an included sightseeing tour with our Local Guide. You'll even see a fire breathing dragon, very Game of Thrones might we add. Beautiful old town square will leave you charmed and packed full of knowledge once the tour wraps up. What else? We serve up a Salt Mine tour, but this aint like what you put on your eggs in the morning. These mines are like an underground gallery of carvings, and seriously cool. We recommend you also conserve some energy for the option to get involved with a traditional Polish Pierogi (dumpling) evening, consisting of, well, dumplings. Collective YUM at these sweet and savoury treats.

Krakow to Warsaw via Czestochowa

This morning we change our tune and take a moving stop at Auschwitz, the most infamous former Nazi concentration camp and a very sobering experience. 
After allowing some of history’s darkest moments to unfold themselves upon us, we will carry on to the holy hotspot of Częstochowa visiting it's tall and picturesque monastery at Jasna Góra.
Perogies Polish dumplings and a glass of compote somewhere within Warsaw's lively cafe scene should be your introduction to this emerging European capital. As we pull into the city, just ask your Trip Manager for the best local hangs. We have all day tomorrow to explore, so there's no need to start whipping through the to-do list just yet.

Warsaw

You didn't think we were winding down now, did you? Gosh no. Not when we have an old Jewish Ghetto to explore and an authentic Polish feast to devour, and both are included. Tragic bombings after the war have seen this city experience a re-birth, and it's packed with museums, a buzzing street art scene, and cool vibes dotted with a dose of random to keep us on our toes. Your Local guide will give you the insider track as we take it all in on foot. A renowned musical city, keep your ears open day long and see what sound pleasures you also stumble upon. We'll treat you to dinner tonight, as, wait for it, it's our last night on tour. And oh what a tour it has been. We've eaten, strolled and learnt more than we thought possible, and no doubt made some unbreakable bonds along the way. Over dinner we'll reminisce on the good times over apple roast duck, dumplings (surprise, surprise) and roulade, with a start like this it is sure to be a night to remember.

Depart Warsaw/Berlin

Whether you choose to hitch a free ride back to Berlin or you end your festivities here in Warsaw, the pain will be equally unbearable. We have just two words: Reunion Trip.
