You will then stay for three nights at a minimum 3-star hotel in Prague. Finally, you will stay for three nights at the 4-star Ramada Brühl or Ramada Hürth, on the outskirts on Cologne.

    Your overnight stay in Belgium will be in a city-style hotel.

    If you prefer, then you can join the tour at the hotel. To do this, we will require a copy of your passport for identification purposes and you must advise us at the time of booking.

    We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
