Our tours are carefully planned to offer you a comfortable balance of sightseeing, entertainment, and leisure time.
Experience shows, however, that many travelers like to use their free time to make one or more additional excursions.
The optional excursions we offer are listed alphabetically below along with approximate prices and
times, as well as the cities from which they are operated.
Optionals must be booked with and paid to your tour manager in Europe.
Prices are in American Dollars and are based on payment with VISA, MASTERCARD, or DISCOVER (no other credit cards are accepted). Visa, MasterCard and Discover are the recommended form of payment to avoid carrying excessive cash and exchange rate fluctuations. When paying by credit card, you must be able to present the actual card to your tour manager. Please Note: If you bring a DISCOVER card, be sure to also bring a VISA or MASTERCARD because, while Discover is accepted for optional excursion payments, it is not always accepted for other payments in Europe. In those special circumstances where cash is the only available form of payment, the tour manager will provide a pricing chart based on the local currency. Cash payments during the tour must be in the local currency.
Please note that personal checks and traveler's checks are not accepted.
Prices featured below are subject to change. Current pricing will be provided with Final Documents.
Operation of all excursions is subject to sufficient participation, and some excursions are subject to favorable weather conditions. Your tour manager reserves the right to make changes to or cancel these excursions at his/her sole discretion.
