Itinerary


3 Nights in Berlin

Day 1

Welcome to Berlin! You will be met at the airport and have transport arranged to your centrally located accommodation.

Included : Berlin Airport Transfer

Day 2

City Walking Tour
Today you'll be taking a group walking tour. You’ll stroll down Berlin's royal boulevard and retrace the city's evolution from a pagan fishing village into the capital of Prussia, a centre of the Enlightenment under Frederick the Great, the scene of occupation by Napoleon, and the capital of Bismarck's German empire. Your guide will help you discover the brilliant memorial for the Nazi book burning close to where Marx studied and Albert Einstein taught. Walk across the final battlefield of WWII and find out how the peculiar events surrounding the Reichstag fire led to the Nazis' rise to power in 1933. Stand at the site of Hitler's bunker: an in-depth account of the claustrophobic last days spent inside, Hitler's suicide, the fate of his remains and what became of the bunker itself. Explore the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and get the inside story behind the incredible controversy surrounding it. For extra fee we can also arrange a private tour for you.

Day 3

Suggestion to explore on your own: 20th Century Berlin History Day
Berlin is full of museums of art and history but there are two we recommend highly, the Berlin Wall Museum and the German History Museum. Why not explore their very informative exhibitions today? The Berlin Wall Memorial is an open-air stretch of 1.4 kilometers of the wall. At Bernauer Strasse, you’ll find the graffiti-covered wall as well as a proper museum that’s full of historical insight. The German History Museum, on the gorgeous and historical avenue Unter den Linden is the most impressive authority on the history of the German nation. You’ll find an incredible collection of art and artefacts from throughout history but the most resonant for most visitors is the section devoted to the 20th century. The permanent collection is huge, and there are also regular exhibitions.

Optional: Potsdam Bus Tour
Potsdam is a cultural and architectural epicenter that’s well worth a visit. So today we recommend a 4.5-hour bus tour to explore the best that Potsdam has to offer. You’ll see the historic sections of the city and enjoy a walk through the impressive gardens of Sanssouci, where there are plenty of places to relax and areas to explore. The bus departs at 10am from Kurfuerstendamm 216.

Day 4

Sit back and relax as we whisk you from Berlin to Prague by train. You'll glide through the picturesque German countryside, and the journey moves riverside once you enter the Czech Republic. Regular train connections between the two cities means departure times are flexible. The journey takes about four and a half hours. Your hotel reception will be able to arrange a taxi for you, much more economically than a transfer service, so we haven’t included that in your package but can do should you wish. Your package includes second class tickets with seat reservations, upgrades to first are available but are much more expensive. For the chance to visit another city on your journey, choose our private transfer option. Your driver will pick you up in Berlin and deliver you to your centrally located Prague accommodation. Along the way however, you'll enjoy a stop in the beautiful and historic city of Dresden, about halfway between Prague and Berlin.
Included : Berlin - Prague Train Tickets 2nd Class
Berlin

A little about Berlin

A vibrant cosmopolitan city that’s rich in history and contemporary culture, Berlin is a place that is constantly evolving. From the ruins of World War II to the Cold War division of the Berlin wall, Berlin has always emerged intact. The largest city in Germany and the capital of the country, this is a sprawling city that luckily has a very comprehensive system of public transportation, both above and below ground. You’ll find a little of everything here, from history to high gastronomy, art museums to palaces, and plenty lively bars. The nightlife here is world-class, but there’s more than enough to see during the day. Berlin is made up of distinctive neighborhoods, and each of them has a different character. We recommend several ways of exploring the city, from a Cold War walking tour to a bike tour to see all the must-see sights in a simple and easy way. An exploration of the long and volatile history of Jewish culture in the city is eye-opening as Jewish life in Berlin has been meticulously documented. Many of the city’s art and culture museums offer unforgettable glimpses into history. Potsdam offers the perfect diversion for an afternoon, and Sanssouci Palace, with its well-tended gardens, is a beautiful reminder of the city’s impressive past. The past comes alive in Berlin, but the present is very much alive as well.

3 Nights in Prague

Day 1

When you arrive at Prague's train station, we will have a driver there to meet you and take you to your accommodation.

Included : Prague Train Station Transfer

Day 2

Get to Know Prague on a City Walking Tour
Prague's main historic sights are situated on the so-called Royal Route between the Old Town and Prague Castle, crossing the river on the Charles Bridge. To make the most of your visit, we will book a private walking tour to put you in touch with all the history and romanticism of this wonderful city. As the tour ends in the courtyard of Prague Castle, you might want to continue the day by following one of the tour routes in the castle.

Optional: Explore Bohemia on a Day Trip from Prague
Take a break from the city and get out into the Bohemian countryside. Head east or west on your pick of two very different day trips. Two hours to the north, close to the German border is the ornate spa town of Karlovy Vary, or Carlsbad to its neighbors. With elegant colonnades, luxury and medicinal spas, a local herbal liquor distillery and a crystal factory, there's plenty to fill your day here! If you'd prefer a shorter journey and a more traditional Bohemian town then we'd recommend UNESCO-listed Kutna Hora. It's best-known for its "bone church," the Sedlec Ossuary, but is actually listed for its beautiful historic Old Town, St. Barbara's cathedral and the Italian court, once the royal mint, due to the now-exhausted silver mines in the area.

This also allows for some extra sightseeing, you might enjoy exploring the region's largest city, Ceske Budejovice, home of the original Budweiser beer or touring the massively ornate castle in Hluboka.
Included : Prague - Cesky Krumlov Door to Door Shuttle
Prague

A little about Prague

“The Golden City,” “The City of 100 Spires,” “The Mother of Cities”... Prague has no shortage of nicknames, and they all pay homage to the city’s charm and beauty. Prague’s winding cobblestone streets, its gorgeous architecture and its atmospheric bridges are fabled, and with good reason: this is a city like no other. From exploring the history and modern culture on foot, to traveling farther afield to take in the picturesque countryside and fairytale villages, you’ll have an itinerary full of adventure and relaxation. This is a very walkable city surrounded by easy-to-reach destinations in the surrounding regions. Besides the city’s history, which is evident on every street, including the beautifully preserved former Jewish Quarter, a rich program awaits. There will be plenty of time to sample the famous Bohemian beer, as we can offer several delightful gastronomic experiences, including a romantic dinner cruise on the Vltava river, and a relaxing afternoon at an actual beer spa! Day-trip destinations include scenic castles, the perfect spa town, and the Renaissance village of Cesky Krumlov. Prague is a city of history that comes to life for every visitor. No matter what your interests, you’ll find yourself intrigued by the inviting magic of the Czech capital in the heart of Europe.

A little about Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov is the second most visited town in the Czech Republic and for good reason. It was put on the UNESCO world heritage list in 1993. A 2.5 hour drive south of Prague it is a prime example of Bohemian village life. The town is highlighted by the castle which houses more than 300 rooms and is the second largest in the Czech Republic. The center with the Vltava river running through it is a labyrinth of cobblestone alleyways with delightful shops. No matter where you are all the town's highlights are no more than five minute walk away. Cesky Krumlov is surrounded by nature set in a hilly green countryside making an ideal place for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, golfing and weather permitting a canoe or rafting trip on the Vltava should not be missed. It is also a city of culture and art with 7 museums and 4 galleries as well as medieval, music and theater festivals taking place year round. For beer lovers the city has its own brewery and the local brew is served around town in ancient taverns and restaurants where you can enjoy typical hearty Czech dishes in a unique classic setting.

You would have a tour of the city by our driver guide and then some free time to enjoy lunch on your own. In the mid afternoon you would continue on to Budapest.
Included : Vienna Train Station Transfer, Vienna - Budapest Train
Vienna

A little about Vienna

Vienna is a timeless city of high culture, grand cafes, breathtaking architecture and more, all set on the banks of the majestic Danube River. The moment you set foot in the city you’ll see why Vienna’s center is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Often regarded as the world capital of music, Vienna is the place where Beethoven and Mozart made history. Even today a visit to the opera or a classical music performance at one of the city’s sublime concert halls is an unforgettable experience. The center of Vienna, St. Stephen’s Square, is dominated by the impressive gothic cathedral of the same name. Inside you’ll find a rich collection of artistic treasures, and the view from the tower is well worth the climb, offering amazing views over the city. But the cathedral is only one of the most visible attractions in Vienna. You won’t want to miss the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace and the imperial Hofburg. Explore the city on foot, in a car, or by bike: the choice is yours. If you’d like to go farther afield you can even take a river cruise to nearby Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, or a bike trip to local wineries. But you don’t have to leave Vienna to have a wonderful time. Simply strolling through the pedestrian zones in the city center and stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake make for a truly enjoyable holiday.

3 Nights in Budapest

Day 1

Once you arrive at Budapest’s Keleti Train Station, there will be a driver there to meet you and bring you to your accommodation located in Budapest's city center.

Optional: Evening Sightseeing Cruise

You're invited for a panoramic boat ride at night, when the city will be beautifully lit up for your pleasure. Glass in hand, you will be able to experience how the legends of Budapest come alive. Look behind the walls of the Royal Palace, the Parliament, the bridges, and other splendid sights all bathed in light. It's a wonderful way to experience the special ambience of the city at night.

Suggestion to explore on your own: Go inside Budapest’s Signature Sights or Explore a Green Oasis in the City
Although a walking tour of the city will show you its highlights, there’s just not enough time to go inside all the buildings. Our favorites to explore are the Great Market Hall, the Parliament and the Opera House. The latter two can be visited on guided tours, available most days. If you’ve already taken in all of central Budapest’s sights, why not spend some time on the Danube, either on land or by boat. Margaret Island is often overlooked by travellers but is right in the middle of the city, just off Margaret Bridge. Consisting mostly of landscaped parks, it features the occasional medieval ruin too. There were several monasteries and convents here. The island is popular with locals as a place for recreation, with swimming pools, jogging paths, four-person bikes to rent and a fun singing fountain to watch from the many seats around it.

Included : Budapest Private Walking Tour

Day 3

Optional: Sample Hungarian Food and Wine with an Expert, or on Your Own
The Hungarians have always placed a lot of importance on food, and their cuisine is probably the most interesting in Central Europe. Get familiar with the aromas and flavors of Hungarian cuisine on our Gastro-Budapest Tour, which will introduce you to classic local dishes, wines and spirits as well as show you some of the best places to shop, eat and drink in the city. You can follow in the footsteps of Anthony Bourdain, with lunch in the same butcher's shop, before finishing the tour with a Hungarian wine tasting.

Suggestion to explore on your own: Mix with the Locals
Is there anything more quintessentially Budapest than a visit to one of the legendary baths? With more hot springs than any other capital, the city lets you take your pick of various styles, from the old school Turkish Rudas Baths to the Art Nouveau Gellert Baths on the Buda side of the city, or even the Neo-Baroque Szechenyi Baths with a large outdoor pool in Pest’s City Park.

Day 4

The rolling countryside of Hungary gives way to the more verdant look of Poland by way of the mountains of Slovakia today as you take a bus to Krakow. We will first arrange a transfer to the bus station, where we will have reserved seats for you on the bus service that connects Budapest and Krakow. You will arrive in Krakow in the early evening, the journey takes a little over 6 hours. If you need more comfort and flexibility on departure time as well as a speedier journey we recommend a private transfer. For an extra fee we will arrange for a driver to pick you up at your accommodation in Budapest and take you directly to your accommodation in Krakow. This gives you the option of adding a short stop around the midpoint of your journey somewhere in Slovakia. If you just want a lunch stop then a true slice of Slovak life can be sampled at a sheep farm or for a longer stop there are plenty of UNESCO-listed sites, such as the preserved village of wooden houses at Vlkolinec or the medieval town with a silver-mining museum and not one but two castles, Banska Stiavnica. Taking a somewhat longer route you could visit another medieval town, Levoca which was UNESCO listed in 2009, or the nearby 12th century Spis Castle, one of the largest castle complexes in Europe.
Included : Budapest - Krakow Bus, Budapest Bus Station Transfer
Budapest

A little about Budapest

The Paris of Central Europe, Budapest is the Queen of the Danube, a sprawling, regal city split in two halves by the mighty river. The city’s two UNESCO-listed halves, ancient Buda and modern Pest both have their charms and are linked by numerous picturesque bridges. From the Buda Castle to the Danube Embankment and the sprawling Andrassy Avenue, with its impressive architecture, there is plenty to keep you busy here, exploring and discovering this atmospheric city. It’s a little too big to explore only on foot, but the Pest side of the city is well laid out with broad avenues of the Parisian system, so it’s hard to get lost, and there is also comprehensive public transport. Budapest has all the charm of Western Europe at a fraction of the price. Here you can taste excellent wines produced throughout the region, and even enjoy Michelin-star dining. We can offer you more than enough exciting activities in the city, from a visit to the incredible Parliament building to a boat cruise with dinner, or an exploration of Budapest’s communist past. The city also has a rich Jewish heritage, so you’ll find the perfect balance of history and modern culture here. Voted Best City in Europe in 2013 by Condé Nast Traveler readers and a regular in their top 3, Budapest really is a special city with activities to cater to every interest.

2 Nights in Krakow

Day 1

A driver will be waiting to greet you and bring you from the Krakow bus station to your city center accommodation.

Suggestion to explore on your own: Krakow Classics: The Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) shopping, Wierzynek Restaurant, Horse Carriage Rides
Today we recommend exploring the center of Krakow to see the rich panoply of sites and experiences the city has to offer. The Cloth Hall, in the main market square in Old Town, is the city’s most recognizable building. This iconic hall is packed with cloth and dry goods merchants. It’s a great place to pick up unique souvenirs. Wierzynek Restaurant, located in Old Town, is one of the city’s most impressive restaurants. The dining room is decorated with original 14th century interiors, knights’ armor and sabres and stained glass. Expect high class twists on Polish cuisine. On the main square you’ll see plenty of horse drawn carriages available for hire. This is a magical way to see the city. The routes depend on what you want to see and can be agreed with the driver as can the length of the tour. Don’t forget to ask the driver to take your picture!

Included : Krakow Bus Station Transfer

Day 2

Exploring Krakow: Private City Walking Tour
Today you’ll be getting a feel for the story of the city with a private tour hosted by a local tour guide. This is the best way to discover little known historical facts and anecdotes while wandering around the heart of the Krakow. You will begin your tour by visiting the Jewish District of Kazimierz. The next stop is a short walk up to the Wawel Hill. Atop it is the Royal Castle and a 14th-century cathedral. Having descended the hill, you’ll stroll along Kanonicza and Grodzka Streets to reach Collegium Maius (Great College). The tour continues to the Main Market Square, making for the perfect place to pick up souvenirs, especially in the Cloth Hall. The tour is completed with a visit to St. Mary’s Church. Your guide knows all the secrets of the city and will give you insight into the historical events that have made Krakow the special place it is today. The guide will pick you up at your accommodation and will drop you off there after the tour, or can provide suggestions for further exploration.

Kazimierz is Krakow’s most unique neighborhood, combining its heritage as the Jewish Quarter with a more recent reinvention as the city’s bohemian headquarters, with great cafes and galleries, markets, museums and more. Today we recommend exploring the neighborhood at your leisure. The historical side of Kazimierz includes five synagogues and the New Jewish Cemetery. We definitely recommend visiting the Old Synagogue, one of the country’s oldest surviving examples of Jewish religious architecture. Beyond that, you should plan to explore the neighborhood’s hipper enclaves, especially the cafes and bars around the square called Plac Nowy, where you’ll also find numerous markets. Excellent restaurants also abound, including the kosher restaurant Olive Tree, French bistro Zazie and the delicious restaurant Szara Kazimierz.

Krakow

A little about Krakow

Krakow may not be the largest city in Poland, but it is by far the most popular with travelers. Less industrial than Warsaw, Krakow was once Poland’s royal capital, and unlike the rest of the country, came out of World War II with its gorgeous architecture mostly unscathed. One glance at the city’s perfectly preserved and restored Old Town and it will be abundantly clear why Krakow is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. This compact historical district houses the largest square in Europe, where you can stroll, shop from the market and sample some tasty Polish delicacies. And, if you’re in the mood you can also sip some of Poland’s famous vodka infused with tangy buffalo grass. Krakow’s cultural life is rich and there are more than enough classical and jazz concerts to attend during your stay. Just walk through Old Town any evening and you’ll find warmly lit cafes, restaurants and bars. Of course, not all of the city’s history is happy, and both the Jewish Heritage in Krakow as well as nearby Auschwitz concentration camp are a chilling and vivid reminder of World War II. You can also explore Poland’s natural wonders from Krakow, with visits to the atmospheric Wieliczka Salt Mine, and the Tatra Mountains all comfortable day trips.

Reviews from guests who have traveled with us to at least half the destinations in this itinerary


Our trip involved 33 days total. Jayway arranged for all but our flights. Every aspect of our trip was well taken care of and wonderful. The guides, excursions and transfers were well arranged without exception. Every question before the trip was answered promptly and thoroughly. During the trip when a few issues arose, our contact Darja, was readily available and helpful. We had a wonderful time.

"JayWay took a lot of hassle out of the trip and gave excellent guidance & suggestions in finalising the individual cities on our trip. This was clearly based on considerable experience with each of the countries. We particularly loved the transfer service at each location. It was most welcome when arriving somewhere tired and not knowing where to go! The local contacts also provided outstanding help and guidance on the road and the mobile phone was a great idea."

"We were so happy to have found JayWay during our research. We have traveled through other countries in Europe where we coordinated the logistics, but with little knowledge of Central Europe and the language and money differences we were uncomfortable going it alone on this trip. The idea of a group type tour was very unappealing so finding a tour company that would handle the logistics without having to travel with 40 other people was great. It allowed us to have the style of trip we wanted and relax and enjoy it without having to be concerned with the details. We learned so much from the local support personnel that assisted us and it really enriched the trip. Thank you!!!"

Other travel agencies offered tours that included most of the places that we wanted to see, but we were not able to fit into their fixed time schedules and routes. JayWay offered us the flexibility that we needed. We had the secure feeling of being on an organized tour, and JayWay's scheduling allowed us plenty of free time to explore the cities as we liked."

"The folks at JayWay are very friendly and knowledgeable. They offered us some great recommendations in terms of places to see and restaurants to eat at. The tour guides are excellent and provided us with a fascinating overview of the cities that we visited. The boutique hotels that we stayed at were very unique and nice, and they were all within close proximity of the city squares. Their expertise and assistance allowed us to travel with ease and experience Prague, Krakow and Budapest to the fullest extent. We enjoyed our trip immensely and would definitely recommend JayWay to anyone considering traveling to Central Europe!"
