The name of this European tour—Enchanting Europe—says it all! You're sure to be enchanted as you travel from Amsterdam, Holland’s lively capital, to picturesque Lucerne in the Swiss Alps with overnights in Koblenz and Wiesbaden in the Rhine Valley, in Bavaria’s capital Munich, and in romantic Salzburg. Enjoy a canal cruise in Amsterdam; admire Cologne’s impressive gothic cathedral; walk through the medieval walled town of Rothenburg; visit the famous Hofbräuhaus in Munich; enjoy a guided walking tour through romantic Salzburg and see the sites from The Sound of Music movie; walk through the historic center of Innsbruck and take pictures of the Golden Roof; stop in Vaduz, capital of the Principality of Liechtenstein: and in Lucerne, cross the Chapel Bridge, dating back to the 14th century and admire the emotional Lion Monument.

You’ll also be enchanted by the gorgeous scenery you will see on this tour of Europe.
