About the tour
Explore the amazing capital cities of central Europe. Discover the region's rich heritage of art, history and culture, and savour its world-class castles, palaces and museums, from Berlin to Budapest by rail.
Fly to Berlin today then transfer to the 4* Park Inn Alexanderplatz for a two night stay. The next morning you undertake a guided tour of this historic city, taking in such wondrous sights as the famous Brandenburg Gate, the 19th century Reichstag Building, built to house the Imperial Council of the former German Empire, and the ruins of the Wall which once split this city down the middle. The afternoon is at leisure for you to continue exploring Berlin.
You may like to visit the imposing Opera House, home of the world-famous Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Amazing organisation from the moment we arrived to our final departure. Tour led by highly skilled professional, efficient , knowledgeable and effective guide Irene Barlow.
