Get connected with your fellow travelers on our free app—available on both Apple and Android devices. Check out travelers’ profiles, get to know one another, and make plans for your trip in the days leading up to departure.
In most major cities, we’ll throw in a metro pass to give extra freedom to your free time. Your Tour Director will orient you to local public transportation, so you can explore with ease and uncover every hidden gem.
We include visits to popular attractions. These visits vary by itinerary. Check the “What’s included” section of each itinerary for specific sites.
Your Tour Director will introduce you to each city as you arrive. These walks are meant to get you familiar with your hotel neighborhood. Whether they are telling you about the best local hangouts and restaurants or how to use the Paris Metro, you’ll love these fun city walks.
