New range of escorted tours across Europe from Grand UK Holidays

Grand UK Holidays has added three new holidays to its range of escorted tours of Eastern and Central Europe for this summer.


The company's sales director, Harold Burke, said: “We have been expanding our range of holidays to Eastern and Central Europe as they have a particular resonance and appeal for our over-55s clientele. For decades, many of these destinations were out of bounds as they were behind the Iron Curtain, so our customers are particularly keen to explore these cities, now they have the time to visit.

“Also, being on an escorted tour means they can sit back and enjoy all the highlights of the region, without worrying about navigating or lugging their suitcases. Guided tours of the region’s beautiful cities means clients can be sure of seeing the attractions that will appeal to them and their fellow holidaymakers." 

‘Capitals of Central Europe By Air’ is a new eight-day holiday, which starts in Prague and visits Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Brno. Prices are from £649 per person including flights from Stansted or Gatwick, a tour manager and half-board hotel accommodation in Prague, Vienna and Budapest. 

Also new for this year is ‘Secret Bavaria & Cruising the River Danube’ which offers an eight-day coach touring holiday, with a river cruise from Schlogen to Linz.

The tour costs from £639 and also includes visits to Passau, Bavaria and Cesky Krumlov – a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Czech Republic.

Burke said: “This escorted tour combines two popular forms of sight-seeing – the coach tour and the river cruise – and it has the added bonus of a free drinks package in the Bavarian hotel (Haus Bayerwald) from 19:00 to 22:00 each evening.”

Also new is a ‘From the Rhine to Bavaria’ option which costs £699 on half-board and visits Rudesheim, Augsberg, Neuschwanstein Castle, the Black Forest and Heidelberg. It also includes a river cruise element, taking customers along the Rhine past the Loreley Rock to the small riverside town of St Goarhausen.
