European Grandeur Return Eurostar (Summer 2018)
An all-encompassing journey of magnificent menus, outstanding scenery and incredible cultural heritage, this itinerary brings you face-to-face with Europe's finest attractions. Celebrate Catalonia with a small-group pintxo (tapas) tasting, enjoy a tasting of robust Tuscan reds and ascend to the top of Europe on Mount Stanserhorn to learn about regional fauna and flora from a Swiss Ranger. You will meet passionate locals along the way who will share insider knowledge and enrich your experience. Visit Slovenia's subterranean Postojna Caves and marvel at the stalagmite and stalactite formations. Join a local for a visit to a famous coffee house in Vienna and discover how the Viennese introduced the western world to coffee. Dine with locals in Avignon, the heart of Provence, and see the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Palais des Papes.

Authentic Dining
  • Paris: Start your adventure by being escorted to the heart of Paris where, perfectly positioned facing Notre Dame Cathedral, you will dine at La Bouteille d'Or. It was first opened as a tavern in 1631 and while it has since evolved in to an elegant restaurant, it still boasts four centuries of culinary excellence.
  • Tuscany: In the Tuscan countryside, where deep-green cypress trees pierce blue skies and olive groves hug the rolling hillsides, taste the wines of an eminent estate.
  • Venice: In St Marks Square at sunset, long after the day-trippers have gone to their mainland hotels, sip Bellini cocktails canal-side before dinner at a local restaurant.
  • Paris: Meet a local foodie for a behind-the-scenes look into Parisian life. Try some local delicacies in a ptisserie, boulangerie, fromagerie and chocolatier on a gourmet walking tour off the beaten track.
  • Vienna: Café Central has been frequented by many of the elite, including revolutionary Trotsky and psychoanalyst Freud, since 1876. Still a meeting place for philosophers and storytellers, a local shares tales of a by-gone era, as you enjoy delicious Viennese specialities of coffee and Sachertorte.
  • Lucerne: Choose from a selection of fine restaurants on your Dine-Around Evening.
  • Bordeaux: Savour the delightful wines of Chteau Doisy-Daëne, characterised by their finesse and richness.
  • San Sebastian: Dine with the locals, in Basque tradition, with an evening of Pinxtos. Your progressive dinner enables you to select a variety of snack-sized treats, each with their own flavour and presentation, making each guest's meal unique. Be sure to try some of the local Txakoli wine.
  • Avignon: Enjoy mouthwatering farm-to-table cuisine from Southern France, as you dine with locals in a beautiful setting.
  • Dining Summary: 25 Buffet Breakfasts (BB), 1 Morning Tea (MT), 1 Afternoon Tea (AT) and 8 Dinners with Wine (DW) all with tea or coffee.
