What our travelers say about their winter getaways

Wonderful trip
By 2nd-time traveler Carla on 12/08/19
These countries are beautiful during Christmas, even though there was no snow. I can’t decide which city I like the best as they were all gorgeous. Friendly people everywhere you go. The Hotels and excursions were fabulous. Jens, our tour guide was efficient, patient, and most of all FUN.
Christmas Markets of Budapest, Vienna & Prague
Wonderful Winter Break
By 2nd-time traveler Christina on 02/22/20
A week in Iceland might not sound like the perfect winter break....but it was! The hotels, meals and the pacing of the trip were perfect. We could not have asked for a better guide.
Iceland: Reykjavik & the Northern Lights
Winter Vacation in Europe?
12/28/18 by 3rd-time traveler Nancy
Our terrific tour director, Alex, and our bus driver, Marcin, who seemingly navigated with ease the snowy winter roads around the countries we visited. And snow on top of buildings and scenery is beautiful, especially in places that we visited.
New Year's Eve in Lucerne: Germany, Switzerland & Austria
Christmas came early this year
By 2nd-time traveler Rev Msgr John on 12/07/19
Planning since July for Christmas seemed crazy but when the time came there were things I wish I had done better to prepare - like done a lot more walking or riding an exercise machine! From the moment I landed in Amsterdam to seeing me off at 6am departure day our guide Jionet was WONDERFUL!!!
Christmas Markets of Amsterdam, Luxembourg & Brussels

What are the benefits of traveling in the winter?

Here are just a few reasons why winter vacations are amazing.

1. Fewer crowds
One of the biggest benefits of winter trips is fewer tourists. Because winter is traditionally considered the off-season, you’ll reap all the benefits that come with traveling against the grain.

2. It’s not as hot
If you’re someone who’s always warm, you’ll love winter travel. You’ll be far more comfortable on long walks and any outdoor activities you may want to do!

3. Seasonal cuisine
Whether it’s truffles in Italy or mulled wine in the Alps, you’ll get to taste some of the best seasonal foods on our winter vacations.

4. Better value
Another benefit of winter travel is that you get the most for your money. Winter tours tend to be less expensive because there’s less demand for them, but they are just as fun!

5. A more authentic experience
With fewer tourists around, you’ll get to experience what it’s like to live like a local—wherever you choose to go on your winter tour.
