Hey pdrake,

the other two's didn't understood your question. I wasn't on this tour, but I've been to most of the places on this trip "Best of Eastern Europe". It looks great and you will see some great places.

I did three G-adventures-tours and in my opinion they do a great job, so go for it and prepare for some goose bumps when you will visiting Auschwitz, I had some...

As an advice; plan maybe two or even three more days in Berlin; it's the greatest city in Germany; history (20th century and beyond), architecture (all the new buildings, ricing after the fall of the Berlin Wall), partying hard (Kurfürstendamm, Friedrichstrasse ect.), amazing museums (DDR, Bunker, Pergamon)and many things more. You can even go the the city of Potsdam, which is on the outskirts of Berlin and there is the palace of sansoucci (the Versailles of Germany) and the Movie-Studios "Babelsberg" where lots of Q.Tarantinos "Inglorious Basterds" was made.

I went on this trip last summer with my sister and it was amazing. Although, the itinerary we had is different than the one they have currently. (And our trip was $500 more expensive) We went to Vienna, Czesky Krumlov (in the Czech Republic), Prague, Krakow, The Tatras Mountains, and Budapest. It was wonderful, traveling wasn't too terrible- not many long trips to get from destinantion to destination. and it was a great mix of individual and group time. I would suggest using a backpack as your luggage (we used suitcases and regretted it with all the steps and hoping on and off of public busses) So although it wasn't the exact tour the areas are great and I would highly recommend it. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hello,

I have a ton of questions about the Best of Eastern Europe trip....I just haven't formulated all of them at this point. The top one on my mind right now is the flexibility of doing things outside of the group. I know there are activities I sign up for in advance of the trip, but what if I want to go to a different museum or a different site other than the group, am I free to do so?

A big thing for me is to be able to get to (Roman Catholic) Mass on Sundays, and possibly during the week as well. Am I able to just do that? Do I have to just this figure this out on my own based on where we are at during the trip?

And what about the accommodations? If I want a Holiday Inn kind of experience, would I choose the "comfort level"? I just want to know what the differences in the quality of accommodations between the different levels one can choose for lodging.

More questions to come:)

Thanks for everyone's input on this.

Here's to 2015 and to new adventures!
