Tour Overview


Touching down in Vienna, the 'City of the Waltz,' in Austria, we explore the maze of narrow, cobblestone streets on foot, visiting world-renowned sites along the well-trodden tourist route, like the buzzing main street, Gothic cathedral and glittering palace, as well as venturing away from the crowds to the lesser-known yet equally rewarding sites of interest. Combining the two, our tour ensures that you will not miss out on the world-famous attractions that lure flocks of travellers the world around, while at the same time providing the opportunity to give you a glimpse of the true face of Vienna. From here, we cross into the Czech Republic and to the UNESCO Heritage Site of Valtice, whereupon we venture into the countryside for a hike through pristine landscapes along the 100-year-old Greenway Corridor that connects cultural monuments, historic towns and quaint villages with restored castles and churches. We wander through romantic parks, visit Renaissance chateaux and architectural monuments, hike in the Pavala hills and soak up the mediaeval atmosphere in the jewel of South Bohemia, Cesky Krumlov. Nearing the end of our two-week tour, we spend some time in Prague, a destination compared with Florence and Rome for its beauty to explore the many wondrous sites the city has to offer.

Regions visited: Western Europe and Central And Eastern Europe

Testimonials


Joan H. (Strathmore, AB, US)

We ll never really be able to explain to you how much we enjoyed this trip and that most of it was due to him (Petr Zitek). I would highly recommend Petr to anyone wishing to take a trip to this part of the world. They would learn so much and would all return home with wonderful memories.

Kate M. (Cranbrook, BC, CA)

Excellent info and insights. I believe that Petr s insights could not necessarily be obtained by reading; it could only be told by someone who had lived through Communism, hid behind a statue as the Russian tanks rolled up and started firing, defected to Canada, and later returned to the land and culture he loved.
