Unforgettable European Holiday Moments

Any overseas holiday can feature a myriad of scenes and experiences that leave an indelible mark in your memory. We might be a bit biased, but we believe Europe is a particular hotspot for locations and landmarks that will stay with you for the rest of your life. In this blog post, let’s talk about some of the crème de la crème – sites and activities our guests regularly nominate as highlights of their tours.

Christmas Markets in Germany and Austria

There’s simply something magical about stepping into European Christmas markets for the first time – especially the famed markets of Germany and Austria. The festive atmosphere will warm your soul (perhaps while a mug of gluwein warms your body). The decorative stalls will spark your imagination. And the vendors will happily load your suitcase with as many exquisite Christmas presents as you can fit in!

ANZAC Dawn on the Western Front

A sombre silence sits over the scene as you stand amongst the white gravestones – each one a reminder of the bravery and sacrifice of those who came before us. The first rays of sun shimmer through the mist and the air fills with the familiar bugle calls. The ANZAC Day dawn memorial in Villers-Bretonneux is an emotional event, yes, but it’s one that many well-travelled Australians and New Zealanders would consider a once-in-your-lifetime essential.

Experience this on our ANZAC Day on the Western Front Tour.

Enjoying Authentic Tapas in Spain

Fans of fine dining inevitably jump at the chance to eat local tapas while touring Spain. Whether your palate prefers a hot or cold variation, you’ll be tantalised by the fresh and flavourful tastes on offer. However, the part of this experience that will most likely stick in your memory for years to come is the atmosphere of the tapas bar itself. The mood will be social, vibrant, genuine, and undeniably Spanish. It also helps when the bar has an amazing view to enjoy while you eat and drink!

Admiring the Amalfi Coast

Laying eyes on the Amalfi Coast for the first time is a moment you will never forget. The shimmering azure water, the quaint buildings stacked perilously on clifftops, the great green hills that rise dramatically from the shoreline… this is a region unlike any other on Earth. Sit down at a bar with a view and order a glass of limoncello to complete the idyllic Amalfi experience.
