Imperial Escape


tour: KCA
7 Day Tour from Budapest to Prague
On this guided vacation of Central Europe, experience the rich history and most popular destinations without the crowds—and even better—without the high-season prices. This Central Europe escorted tour is a magnificent journey through the former Habsburg Empire offering romantic castles, churches, villas and modern architecture, vineyards, breweries, first-class shopping, art, and culinary delights. Both vibrant and relaxing, your adventure begins in magical Budapest, and combines another two of Central Europe’s most popular cities: Vienna and Prague.

Enjoy sightseeing of the must-see sights with a Local Guide in all cities: in Budapest, enjoy the treasures of the city with a panoramic view from Fishermen’s Bastion and admire the 13th-century Matthias Coronation Church, the coronation spot of several Hungarian monarchs; in Vienna, among the many sights you will see, visit St. Stephen’s Cathedral, a symbol of Vienna; and in Prague, visit the 1000-year-old Hradčany Castle grounds, the largest castle complex in the world. Marvel at the Astronomical Clock, built in 1410, and once the envy of all Europe. From the exciting cities and historical sights to the special experiences, this Central Europe escorted vacation has something for everyone, including a low-season price that you won’t want to miss! Let Globus handle the details while you sit back, relax, and enjoy this amazing Imperial Escape!
