There's a reason why Europe is such a popular vacation destination. Few places in the world offer so much rich history in such a relatively small area. In just a matter of hours, you could be touring castles, snacking on gelato, visiting cathedrals or snapping photos of famous landmarks in several different countries. You could live there for the rest of your life and never run out of things to see.

Anna Siampani of CEOWORLD Magazine summed it up nicely when she wrote, "Walking in the streets there is like walking in a fairytale and a trip to Europe is like a trip in time."

Booking a trip to Europe can be stressful, as you usually want to visit as many places as possible. Coordinating transportation between countries alone is a part-time job! Take the frustration out of planning and just enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of Europe on a guided tour through Dick Jensen and Alan McKay Tours.

Here's what's on the itinerary

Dick Jensen and Alan McKay Tours' Grand European Tour covers five countries and multiple different must-see stops over a span of 13 days.

One stop includes a full-day tour of Mad King Ludwig's fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle, the famous structure that inspired Sleeping Beauty's Castle in Disneyland. One Google reviewer said, "Amazing palace in an amazing location between plains, lakes and high mountains. It looks medieval but is modern. Worth any voyage to come experience it and its surroundings."

Another day you'll visit Mirabell Gardens, which you might recognize from the "Do Re Mi" song in "The Sound of Music." These gardens are in TripAdvisor's top three things to do in Salzburg. You'll also see See Salzburg's majestic Cathedral Square (Domplatz).

In addition to these incredible stops, you'll also visit:

  • Vienna with a photo stop at Habsburg's magnificent Schönbrunn Palace, a trip to the great St. Stephen's Cathedral and the State Opera House.
  • Budapest to visit Buda Castle, the 13th Century St. Matthias Church and views of Parliament from Fisherman's Bastion.
  • Heroes' Square and a Danube River cruise before continuing to a Hungarian dinner with gypsy music and a folklore show.
  • Wieliczka Salt Mine with its underground tunnels and salt sculptures.
  • Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp.
  • 1,000-year-old Prague Castle and the enormous St. Vitus Cathedral and other top spots in Prague.
  • Dresden to enjoy the artistic and architectural heritage of the Zwinger Palace and Semper Opera House.
  • The famous Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie.

This isn't even the full list. For a complete itinerary, visit
