European Sampler

Vacation Overview
As the name implies, this guided European tour is a sample of some of the major highlights of Europe. You’ll spend two nights in London, Lucerne, and Paris, as well as a night each in Amsterdam and Heidelberg. On your sightseeing tour in London, you’ll visit St. Paul’s Cathedral, where Prince Charles and Lady Diana were married, and see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, if held. In Amsterdam, your sightseeing is via a canal cruise to experience Amsterdam! In both Heidelberg and Lucerne, you’ll discover the must-see sights on a walking tour, including Heidelberg’s Old Town and Lucerne’s Bourbaki Panorama, a circular painting dating to 1881 and depicting memorable scenes from the Franco-Prussian War. Your Paris sightseeing includes a Seine cruise, where you’ll be treated to great views of Notre Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower. This escorted European tour also includes majestic scenery, such as a romantic Rhine cruise, a stop at the spectacular Rhine Falls – Europe’s largest waterfall, and an exciting ride on the high-speed Eurostar train. Of course, on a European sampler tour you must taste specialty foods unique to each area, and with Globus, you get the special opportunity to do just that! You’ll enjoy dinner and a beer at a charming local restaurant in Heidelberg, and coffee with traditional homemade Black Forest Cake in Germany’s Black Forest. Fascinating sightseeing, spectacular scenery, tasty local food, expert Local Guides, and a Tour Director ready to bring these destinations to life…what more can you ask for in a European guided tour?
