“The longer stays, the more free time and the later starts all combine to provide a hassle-free holiday option that is suitable for a more independent traveller. It is clear from the programme's success and our year on year growth that we have really hit the mark, says managing director, Theresa Szejwallo.

“And our 15-day Bohemian Highlights will really hit the spot with a superb Be My Guest experience with a local family who have lived on the outskirts of Budapest for many generations and a visit to the Pilsner Urquell Brewery in the Czech Republic.”

Priced from R22 185 per person sharing travellers can expect to enjoy hot buffet breakfasts daily, seven evening meals, First Class hotel accommodation, all hotel tips, baggage handling, service charges and local taxes, travel by luxury coaches, complimentary airport transfers and the high-speed train between Berlin and Warsaw.
