Passport & Visa

This itinerary includes the following countries: Austria, Switzerland, Germany, the principality of Liechtenstein (on transfer), and Hungary (on extension). In order to enter these countries, U.S. and Canadian citizens need a valid passport. The expiration date must extend at least six months beyond the date of your return home. No visa is required for U.S. or Canadian citizens. If you are not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must contact each country’s consulate for your specific entry requirements.

Health

There are no major health risks associated with traveling on this tour. Be aware of high-altitude conditions in the region. The elevation of Mount Pilatus is 7,000 feet. Be sure to check with your health care provider for the latest updates and overseas travel requirements.

Transportation / Walking on tour

Round-trip flights arrive in Frankfurt and depart from Vienna (or Budapest on the extension). Included transportation on your tour is by private motor coach. In your free time, you may wish to explore the main cities by public transportation. Munich’s transportation system (MVV) is topnotch, an all-inclusive combination of trams, buses, U-bahn (underground) and S-bahn (above ground). Purchase tickets from newspaper stands, vending machines or the drivers. Most of the major attractions lie within the inner-city blue zone. Vienna has one of Europe’s most efficient transportation systems. You can purchase tickets in singles or in bulk for S-bahn, U-bahn, tram and bus lines. The waiting time for trains and subways is usually no more than five to 10 minutes.

Clothing & Packing Tips

To ensure you’re comfortable while out exploring, we recommend packing lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily layered. For sightseeing, we suggest bringing a sturdy pair of walking shoes or sneakers, as well as a lightweight sports jacket or rainwear. If you’re planning a visit to a high-end restaurant or performance, you may also want to bring dressier attire. Also, please remember that it’s preferable to avoid showing bare legs or shoulders during visits to churches or other religious sites (entrance may be denied on this basis).

Baggage Allowance

Airlines have varying weight restrictions on luggage. Some airlines may impose additional charges if you choose to check any baggage. Please contact your airline or refer to its website for detailed information regarding your airline’s checked baggage policies. Bear in mind that your luggage will probably weigh more on your return trip due to souvenir shopping. We allow only one suitcase per person. One carry-on bag is also permitted, provided that it does not exceed 45 inches (length + width + height). There may be times when you will have to handle your own bags, and you’ll find that lightweight luggage provides a distinct advantage. Make sure you label your baggage and carry valuables, medication and documents in your carry-on luggage.

Cuisine

In Austria, thick soups of paprika and onion, veal, beef and venison with cranberries are popular, as is the renowned Wiener Schnitzel. Fish-lovers will find wild trout, roast carp and crayfish. Desserts are perhaps the most memorable including: strudels made with all kinds of fruit and nuts, soufflés and elegant chocolate cakes such as the world-famous Sachertorte. Swiss food, influenced by surrounding countries, is varied and sophisticated. The most famous local dish is fondue, made from molten cheese, flavored with wine, garlic and liquor, into which pieces of skewered bread are dipped. Raclette is another delicious cooked cheese dish, served with roasted or boiled potatoes, air-dried beef and pickled onions. Sausages, breaded veal fillets and freshwater fish are also popular. Swiss dairy products are among the world’s finest, and full-cream milk is the essential ingredient for the exceptionally good chocolate produced here. German food is hearty and substantial. Among the specialties are dumpling stews and sauerkraut cabbage, tasty thick sausages and smoked cheeses, dark breads and chocolate cakes. Bavaria produces some of the world’s purest beers, while white German wines are exceptionally good.

Currency

The euro (in Austria and Germany), the Swiss franc and the Hungarian forint (on the extension) are the currencies you’ll be using on your tour. Better rates of exchange are usually available in your destination countries, although it’s worth ordering some currency from your local bank to use when you first arrive. We advise that you take credit cards, ATM/bank cards and traveler’s checks, which can be exchanged for cash at local banks, as needed. We suggest informing your bank and credit card company of your travel plans, so they don’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.

Tipping

At the conclusion of your tour, it’s customary to offer your Tour Director and driver a gratuity. We recommend tipping in your tour country’s currency the equivalent of $3USD/CAD per day for your driver and $6USD/CAD to $9USD/CAD per day for your Tour Director. If applicable, we also recommend the equivalent of $1USD/CAD per local guide. Tips can only be paid in cash. Please keep current currency rates in mind when tipping.

FABULOUS SCENERY

EVERYTHING WONDERFUL, EXCEPT THE HOTEL IN MUNICH. WE WERE GIVEN A SMOKING ROOM, & DESPITE PROTESTS BECAUSE WE HAVE SERIOUS ALLERGIES, WE COULD NOT CHANGE. HOTEL CLAIMED ALL ROOMS WERE TAKEN, BUT NEW PEOPLE CAME AFTER US & CHECKED IN. ALSO THE DINING ROOM WAS TERRIBLE. OVERCROWDED, NO CONTROL WITH SEVERAL GROUPS. NO CLEAN TABLES, DISHES & FOOD RAN OUT & NOT REPLENISHED. STAFF UNFRIENDLY & NOT CONCERNED. WE BELIEV TO HAVE TO STAY IN A SMOKING ROOM FOR 2 DAYS WHICH SMELLED VERY BAD IS A VIOLATION OF OUR RIGHTS & A CONTRACT VIOLATION WITH GO AHEAD & WE EXPECT SOME REFUND AS WE HAD TO SUFFER FOR 2 DAYS/NIGHTS THERE.

 

Dear Richard, We are pleased to learn that overall you enjoyed your time on tour. We are also glad that you were able to speak with one of our Quality Control team members about the one aspect of your tour, one of your hotels, that did not meet your expectations. We regret that you were placed in a smoking room and that this was bothersome throughout your stay. As discussed, Go Ahead in no way and in none of our materials ever guarantees non-smoking rooms; therefore, your stay in a smoking room does not violate any rights or any contract you have with Go Ahead. We always prefer to secure non-smoking rooms and we always will when possible; however, this is simply impossible to guarantee. In terms of the dining room and overall service at this hotel, we will be sure to communicate this to our Operations team who will directly address it with the hotel. We greatly appreciate your feedback, as we certainly want you to have the best experience possible at each of our accommodations. Thank you again for your feedback, and if you should have any further concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-597-0350.

Nice Tour of Germany, Switzerland and Austria

Had a great time on this tour and met a lot of very nice people. The tour director, Frank, was very personable, helpful, knowledgeable, and kept everything running smoothly. Thomas, the bus driver did a wonderful job maneuvering some of those tight hair pin turns. The hotels were nice and all (except for Vienna) were within walking distance of the city centers. This is a fast-paced tour; however, you have the option of opting out of any excursions which allows for more time to explore on your own. I loved Lucerne and the Heidelberg Region especially but found beauty and interest in all that we saw and all that we did. Will definitely look into going on another tour with Go Ahead in the near future.

 

Hi Ann! We’re happy to hear you met so many great people on tour, including your Tour Director and bus driver. Regarding your hotels, we’re glad that you were generally satisfied with them; however, we regret that you felt the hotel in Vienna was not optimally located. We will be sure to share this with our Operations team. We’re pleased that you enjoyed the flexibility our optionals provide, in terms of pacing and having enough time to explore on your own. Thank you for your feedback, Ann, and we can’t wait to welcome you on tour again!

I don't know what I loved more about this tour - the places we went or the people we met. Our tour director, Jens, was wonderful. The whole group got along great and even though it rained more than I would have liked, it was still a wonderful two weeks.

 

Hi Lorraine! Despite the rain, we're so glad that you enjoyed the places you went and all the people you met along the way. We also appreciate your feedback on your Tour Director and will be sure to share it with his supervisor. Thank you for your review, and we hope to welcome you on tour again!

Disappointed with airline hassles

Recently we toured with GoAhead for our 3rd Tour. We really appreciated the attention to detail in our past tours with GoAhead. So, when we had issues with the airline on our return trip we contacted GoAhead with the concerns. Unfortunately, the matter was not resolved to our satisfaction. GoAhead stated that they do not control the airlines, which we understand, however the company should reflect good customer relations in all aspects of the tour. We utilize a tour company so that these details will be taken care of. We were placed on 'standby' for the flight back home. It was an extremely anxiety provoking ordeal. We will seriously need to consider other options for our next tour. Disappointed that GoAhead did not value our return business enough to provide a favorable resolution to our concerns.

 

Dear Richard, We regret that you experienced frustration with your return flight. We are glad a member of our Quality Control team was able to speak with your wife about this matter, as we understand how stressful it can be when flight plans are affected by changes made by the airline. While we share in your frustration about your flight issue, we are glad that you were ultimately able to board your flight as scheduled. While we do work with our partners in the airline industry to get our travelers to and from tour safely, they are their own complete entity and have their own policies for their customers. It is always our hope that our travelers journeys will be as seamless as possible, but unfortunately, flight changes or delays are a reality of air travel. Again, we regret that you experienced frustration with your return flight, but we are glad that you were able to board and return safely. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us again with further questions on the matter. You can reach our Quality Control team at 1-800-597-0350.

Awesome program

This was a retrun trip to southern Bavaria for me after 35 years. It was EVERYTHING GO Ahead said it would be. While you do cover a lot of territory, we had an awesome tour director (Ildiko) who kept us to the timetable and worked with everyone and we saw everything promised (plus a lot more). WE also had great city tour guides in each of the cities we went to to give you local history and facts. Bottom line is that if you're looking for a Southern Bavaria tour, look no further - and I would definitely use Go AHead for my future travel - so obviously I would highly recommend them as well to anyone.

 

Hi Will! We’re so glad you were able to return to this region and experience it thirty-five years later. Wow! We’re thrilled that you felt prepared for tour and that you enjoyed the itinerary. We’re also delighted to learn that your Tour Director kept everyone organized and the tour running smoothly. Thank you for your recommendation, and we hope to welcome you on tour again!

Middle European Tour

We absolutely loved this tour. The hotel rooms were good, though AC isn't always available in Europe. Our tour guide, Lala, was wonderful! We also thoroughly enjoyed the 'step-on' guides for the various locales. There was not a single excursion that we would not take again. We did the Sound of Music Tour, Nueschwanstein Castle, the Abbey at Meld, other castles and numerous cathedrals and basilicas. The Bratislava tour was also wonderful. Would recommend this tour to anyone who can walk a lot and tolerate the cobblestone streets.

 

Hi Loren! We’re glad to learn that you had a nice time on tour. We appreciate your feedback on your Tour Director, local guides, and excursions. We’re so pleased you would recommend this tour, and we thank you for sharing your experience. Let us know when you’re ready to hit the road again!

Great trip!

We had a really great time on our trip and the tour director and bus driver were fantastic. We would recommend this trip to anyone, except there was a lot of walking and steps to and in castles and towns (that was the only down side).
