Day 4: Vienna: With its soaring Gothic tower, St Stephan's Cathedral represents the heart of Vienna and should be considered a sightseeing essential. The magnificent Schönnbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburgs is also without question a Viennese pre-requesite.

Day 6: Budapest: Split down the middle by the Danube River the once separate cities of  "Buda" and "Pest" are joined together by the magnificent Chain Bridge.

Explore Buda Castle also known as the Royal Palace. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will also find the city's National Gallery and History Museum located here.

Day 7:Budapest: Heroe's Square is an excellent starting point for a tour of the Pest side of the city. The Square pays hommage to Hungary's great leaders and is also the main entrance to the City Park. A little green gem in Budapest, the "English-style" garden was created from a drained swamp in the 18-19th centuries to provide a National Garden where people could relax. Start from the Vajdahunyad Castle at the Heroe's Square end and walk through the park to the Zoo for a pleasant escape from the buzz of the city.

Day 8:Join the private transfer from your hotel to the airport for the return flight to the UK.
