EVERYTHING A WOMAN WANTS IN A TOUR!
This tour offers everything a woman traveling to Central Europe wants to experience — shopping, art, history, culture, spa, and fine cuisine.

Prague, described as one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals, was fortunately spared damage in World War II. Today, Prague is a well-preserved museum of classic architecture. Participants will view the statues of Charles Bridge — each one telling a story of past times and deeds — and walk the cobblestone streets of Old Town encapsulated in Old World charm and beauty.

In Budapest, the city is graced by splendid suspension bridges. Travelers will listen to the sounds of Gypsy bands in Buda’s Castle district, and walk through the fashionable shopping street of Vaci Utca in Pest. There is even an opportunity to indulge in a complimentary foot massage at the renowned Gellert Spa with thermal baths!
