The Destination
From the labyrinthine streets of London, to the castle-lined country roads of Germany, to the narrow canals of Venice, there are as many ways to travel through Western Europe as there are sights to see in this not-so-vast yet varied quarter of the continent. Perhaps the best way to see it all, however, is by motorcoach. Join Great Value Vacations on an 11-day trip across eight cities, seven countries, and innumerable highways, channels, backroads, rivers, and bridges. Along the way you'll see some of Europe's most storied sights—from Buckingham Palace to the Champs Elysees—as well as a number of under-the-radar attractions, such as the fairy-tale town of Rothenburg in the south of Germany. Saddle up and come aboard—it's off to Europe you go.

The Itinerary
day 1: Depart the United States for your overnight flight to London.

day 2: Welcome to England! Upon arrival you'll be transferred to your hotel for check-in. The rest of your day is at leisure to begin exploring this vibrant city. You won't be meeting your tour director until you arrive in Belgium, but uniformed hosts will be available to help you make the most of your stay in London.
Overnight at the Novotel London West Hotel or similar.

day 3: Today you'll have a full day to savor the iconic city of London. Tradition and sophistication reign here, from the Yeomen of the Guard in traditional Tudor garb to the gates of Buckingham Palace to the Gothic grace of Westminster Abbey. Aside from being the heart of British history, London is also an influential metropolis teeming with innovation—leading Great Britain, and arguably the world, in fine art, food, and fashion.
Overnight at the Novotel London West Hotel or similar. Breakfast provided.

day 4: You'll leave London early and head through the lush English countryside to the Channel port, where you'll board your ferry for the European Continent. Here your tour director and comfortable coach wait to take you to Brussels for an orientation drive and an overnight stay.
Overnight at the Park Inn Hotel or similar. Breakfast provided.

day 5: Today, journey into Germany to the shores of the mighty Rhine River to enjoy an afternoon cruise. Then, it's on to the Frankfurt area for the night.

Overnight at the Holiday Inn Marghera or similar. Breakfast and dinner provided.
