There's no shortage of things to do as you'll come to discover yourself - from the tranquillity of the Royal Parks to the shopping frenzy on Oxford Street, the pomp and pageantry of the city's royal landmarks to one of London's locals for a pint or two.
Day 3AmsterdamLondon - Amsterdam (2 Nights): This morning meet your Travel Director and fellow travel companions, journey through the Kent countryside to Dover. Here you'll board your ferry to Calais, then wind your way through the flat expanses of Belgium and the Netherlands, reaching Amsterdam this afternoon.

Your orientation tour will take you past gabled houses, countless canals, and a leafy plein or two. Dodge the trams and bicycles as you explore on your own later or perhaps join an Optional Experience to Volendam where the Dutch traditions of cheese and clog making take centre stage. Later, consider an optional dinner featuring Dutch specialties in a historic home.
Day 5RhinelandAmsterdam - Cologne - Rhineland (1 Night): From picture-perfect skylines to irresistible natural landscapes - your day begins in Amsterdam but ends in the beautiful Rhine Valley. On your way to the Rhineland, you'll pass Cologne with its UNESCO-listed cathedral which took over seven centuries to build.

Equal to Paris in the beauty stakes, but with a Bohemian flavour that pours out of every historic nook and cranny, Prague will leave you spellbound. This 'City of a Hundred Spires' was saved from bombing during World War II while the rest of Europe's capitals smouldered.

Crossing the lagoon by private launch, you'll see how life is lived both on land and water in this historic Byzantine city. The Winged Lion of Venice watches over the people and pigeons in St. Mark's Square and you'll have an opportunity to view it and the imposing Doge's Palace, which the Venice ruling elite once called home. Take advantage of your time to explore the narrow alleyways, historic bridges and the canals of the city or consider taking an optional cruise to Burano Island, the most picturesque island in the lagoon.
