ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I was so impressed by the quality of the program and it totally exceeded my expectations.

This particular Central Europe program was listed as Easy and although it was a bit more rigorous than we expected, the guides made every effort to accommodate those with physical limitations. We loved the personal touches in Hungary and our guides were all very helpful. We would recommend this program to anyone. We learned so much about Central Europe and have a greater understanding of that part of the world.

A great look at historic cities. It was a thrill standing where so many classic pictures I'd seen had been taken.

The itinerary was extremely interesting. I was in Prague 20 years ago and was just as impressed with the city as the first time. I was in Budapest 36 years ago and described it as unfriendly and gray. This time I was stunned at its beauty. Our two guides dispelled my previous feelings of unfriendliness.

If you admire beautiful architecture, appreciate classical music or want to know more about the country where your family has roots, this is the trip for you!

What a great trip. I'm telling my friends it's like a combination of camp and college - lots of fun, new friends and a wonderful education! (Linda from Columbus, Ohio)

We just returned from Central Europe tour and our guide Kata in Budapest took a lot of pictures and posted them on your site. How can we access them? Jack and Mary Devaney

Plan on climbing hills and many stairs, but this is a great trip to choose. The leaders and lecturers were terrific;there was attention to every detail. Central Europe has many Jewish sights, which were included in our tours. Arlene
