Our tours to Eastern Europe cover some of the region's top sights from historic cities to spa towns, romantic castles to Roman ruins and picturesque lakes to rugged mountains. Spanning a distance from Estonia all the way to Turkey, our overland adventures cover 14 Eastern European countries including Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia and Austria.
Join us on an Eastern European adventure for summer 2017.
Travelling by public transport from local buses to trains, and staying in local guesthouses and hotels with plenty of free time to explore, on our Eastern Europe tours you'll discover the true heart and soul of each destination. What's more, with a number of our tours ending in Dubrovnik and Istanbul, you can combine a couple of tours to make an even longer overland adventure for a trip of a lifetime. Below is our full list of overland Eastern Europe tours ranging from a week-long trip to a 19 day multi country adventure.
Starts in Budapest and ends in Dubrovnik with tours departing once a month on a Sunday between April and October to make the most of the lovely summer weather.
If you're looking to see more of Croatia, consider combining this overland tour with our 8 day Cruise Dubrovnik sailing holiday, which starts on a Sunday - the same day that our Hungary to Croatia tour ends. This means you can combine time spent sightseeing in Eastern Europe with a relaxing week on a cruise boat exploring Croatia's best islands. Sunbathe on deck, swim in the clear waters of the Adriatic and discover a new port of call each day from the party island of Hvar to scenic Mljet.
Starts in Prague and ends in Istanbul with tours departing once a month on a Wednesday between April and October.
Our range of Turkey tours start on a Saturday in Istanbul and can be combined at the end of our Prague to Istanbul tour, which ends on a Sunday. It would mean moving hotels on day 18 of the Prague to Istanbul tour to join day 1 of our Turkey tour but means you could jump straight into exploring the best of what Turkey has to offer. Combinations we recommend would be our 7 day Aegean Explorer and our 10 day Turkey Unplugged tour. Our shorter 15 day Budapest to Istanbul tour ties in with our 19 day Prague to Istanbul tour so the same combinations can be used. Please speak to a member of the team for more information and don't forget our 5% Repeat Booking discount!
Starts in Tallinn and ends in Budapest with tours departing once a month on a Friday between April and October.
Our 17 day Eastern Europe Explorer can be perfectly combined with our 18 day Best of the Balkans tour to create a 34 day tour from Estonia to Croatia taking in Lithuania, Poland, Serbia and Macedonia to name just a few. But the options don't end there! Once in Dubrovnik you can hop on one of our Croatia sailing holidays or hop around the islands up to Split for a week of sun, sea and sand.
Our Budget range is the perfect choice for independent spirits travelling on a shoestring. As well as guided sightseeing of the key highlights, there’s also ample free time to explore independently or partake in optional excursions that maximise your time in each destination. Few meals are included, allowing you the freedom to choose exactly where you eat and spend your evenings out, with the added bonus of enabling you to stay in control of your spending.
Many tours in this range include a local payment and this pricing system helps keep costs down so you can be sure we’re delivering the best possible value. You’ll be travelling by both private and public transport – think buses, trains, feluccas and even camels. Accommodation ranges from dome tents to a surprise 4-star hotel at a 3-star price. And with a maximum group size of 32, these tours are designed to create a social and fun travel experience.
