  • Stonehenge and Bath
    (Deadline to book is 21 days prior to departure.)
    Head out into the countryside and see the mysterious giant stones in the middle of the field at Stonehenge. The origin and purpose of the ring of stones is unknown, though most think it was a temple and observatory. You’ll also visit Bath, a favorite vacation spot for early Romans and 18th-century English aristocracy. The baths themselves were built by the Romans in the first century, and today they’re the best Roman ruins in Britain.
  • Rome Cooking Class
    This is your chance to become a real Italian chef. Learn the basics of the regional specialties, as a local professional chef guides you through the process. You’ll start by making two kinds of pasta from scratch (anything from ravioli to cannelloni). Next the focus turns to the sauces. Don’t worry if your skills in the kitchen are lacking—when you’re done cooking you’ll be treated to a three-course dinner prepared by the chef’s team.
  • Monaco Casino Night
    Monaco Casino Night: Get a taste of the high life on a trip to Monaco. When you arrive, you’ll have a chance to explore the Royal Palace grounds and enjoy a meal in Monaco's swanky Old Town. Then it’s time to go inside the breathtaking Monte-Carlo Casino. Not a gambler? Not a problem. You’ll be busy rubbing elbows with the incredibly rich, checking out all the hot cars, and exploring the most famous casino in the world. There’s a strict dress code, so dress to impress. Dinner, round-trip transportation and casino entrance fee are included.
  • Cava and Tapas
    Take a trip outside of Barcelona to try two delicious local specialties: cava and tapas. Cava is a sparkling white or pink wine (like champagne) produced in Spain’s Catalonia region. Learn how it’s made, and then sample a few of the local variations along with some tasty tapas, the traditional Spanish appetizers.
  • Mount Pilatus
    Take an amazing trip to the top of Mount Pilatus, the majestic mountain dominating the Lucerne skyline. If it’s summer, you’ll travel to the foot of the mountain by boat across Lake Lucerne, and then ride the famous Pilatus cog railway—the steepest in the world—to the top. During other seasons, you’ll drive to the mountain base before going up by cable car. Forty-five minutes and 6,387 feet later, you’ll reach the summit. Take in the incredible panoramic views—see the city of Lucerne, its pristine lake, and the snow-capped Alps.
  • Versailles (pre-book only)
    (Deadline to book is 45 days prior to departure.)
    Spend the afternoon at the over-the-top palace of Louis XIV. Not far from Paris, this is where French royalty reveled in their extravagant lifestyle in the decades before the Revolution. At one point, a thousand nobles were attended by 4,000 servants inside the palace, while 15,000 soldiers and servants lived in the annexes. Walk through the landscaped gardens, tour the State Apartments of the King and the Queen, and see the Hall of Mirrors.
  • Amsterdam Bike Tour
    Bike like a local through the streets and countryside of Amsterdam. You’ll start by pedaling through the city, then taking a ferry across the North Holland Canal. On the other side, you’ll ride through rural landscapes and see the picturesque windmills and 17th century villages. Enjoy a picnic lunch while soaking up the stunning Dutch countryside.
  • Stonehenge and Bath
    Head out into the countryside and see the mysterious giant stones in the middle of the field at Stonehenge. The origin and purpose of the ring of stones is unknown, though most think it was a temple and observatory. You’ll also visit Bath, a favorite vacation spot for early Romans and 18th-century English aristocracy.
