Why should you choose the Europe Tour?

Direct from Europe, past schoolies and parents share their experiences.

"I wanted to thank Unleashed for giving Pua the trip of a life time Europe Grad Trip 2015.  She had the most fantastic time ever. All it took was one brief conversation with Pua's trip leader and I felt totally satisfied that my daughter would be in safe hands through the entire trip. Through the Unleashed organisation she not only experienced Europe in a wonderful light, she was introduced to some amazing people, other like minded students and the crew members themselves were just so interesting and so much fun to be around. She has formed frienships that I am almost certain will last for a very long time!" Annette Johnston, Mother, Europe

“During the tour through Europe we have visited all of the best places. I really loved the ambience and the lovely people in the different cities we have visited! I have never seen so many different cultures as I have seen in these 21 days!” Hannah, 18, Europe

“The best thing about the Europe tour was discovering all of the exciting cities with my friends and other people my age. We have seen all of the famous buildings like the Eiffel Tower and the Colosseum and being partying as well. I couldn’t be spending my time in a better way after finishing high school.” Nick, 18, Europe

ACCOMMODATION

Accommodation

Your trip will stay in various types of accommodation, which could include anything from hostels or bungalows to hotels or a 12th century castle!

On your trip the number of people to a room varies depending on the type of accommodation. When staying in hotels many of the rooms are twin- and triple-share; bungalows can be up to four people per room; while in hostels rooms usually sleep four and occasionally six. Only when staying in our 12th century castle will the number of people to a room exceed six; and even this is only on occasional departures.

ITINERARY

Itinerary

Europe Schoolies Map

Day 1-2: London.

After you have been escorted from the airport and checked into your accommodation, you will then dive into your adventure by enjoying a city tour of London's finest sights and landmarks.

 

Day 3: London to Paris

Your Unleashed trip begins early morning in London. We drive to Dover, where we cross the English Channel to France by ferry. Once we arrive in Calais we drive to Paris. After checking in to our accommodation we have dinner at a local French restaurant. Later we head for a spectacular ‘City Lights’ driving tour with our Unleashed Crew. We get to experience the beauty of Paris along the River Seine, including the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde and much much more!

Day 4: Paris

Schoolies in Paris

For our day in Paris we get to explore the city at our own pace. The city's attractions are the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, Pompidou Centre, Napoleon's Tomb and the impressive Musée d'Orsay. For a fun perspective of Paris, an optional 'Fat Tire' bicycle tour gets us cycling the streets of the French capital, followed by a delicious French dinner. Shortly after, we can finish our Parisian experience with a choice of two great activities - a Seine River Cruise or a show at one of the oldest cabarets in Paris, the famous Paradis Latin.

Day 5: Swiss Alps

A stunning scenic drive takes us to Switzerland and the gorgeous Swiss Alps. We experience mind-blowing landscapes and fairy-tale villages as we draw closer to our accommodation. we are based in a deep valley in the village of Lauterbrunnen, surrounded by towering cliffs home to surreal waterfalls, framed by the snowy peaks of the Alps – followed by a Swiss dinner, you are bound to fall in love.

 

Day 6: Swiss Alps

Schoolies in Europe - Swiss AlpsIn the morning you have an option to ride the historic Jungfraubahn railway to the highest station in Europe, which sits atop the Jungfrau Mountain. At over 12000ft high it's nicknamed, the ‘Roof of Europe’. For those who think that being 12000ft high whilst having your feet on the ground is too boring – why not throw yourself out of a helicopter instead?! An optional (weather permitting) tandem skydive over the Swiss Alps is truly memorable. The rest of the day is free to explore the numerous mountain walks followed by another delicious dinner together.

Day 7: Florence

Benvenuto in Italia! Our Unleashed adventure continues as we enter Italy. In the afternoon we make a quick stop in Pisa for you to take many fun photos with the Leaning Tower. Next, we head through the Tuscan countryside to Florence, the home of Renaissance art, gold and silver markets, great shopping and even better food! Followed by a group dinner, and a night out in Florence.

Day 8: Florence

We start our day with a walking tour led by a local guide, which unveils treasures including the Duomo (Cathedral), Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and many more. We’ll soon witness why Florence is considered an ‘outdoor museum’ as we get up close to the replica of Michelangelo’s ‘David’ statue. Then, a demo at a local leatherworks will reveal the mastery behind Florence’s famous leather goods, and we’ll have plenty of free time to explore this gorgeous city!

Day 9: Rome

We head for Italy’s capital – the ‘Eternal City’ of Rome. On the way we stop at the hilltop city of Orvieto where we can check out the Duomo (Cathedral) and have free time to find our own lunch –  with wild boar meat as the local speciality! Once in Rome we head for a walking adventure with Schoolies in Romeour Unleashed Trip Leader to experience the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, the ancient Roman Forum, the Colosseum and more. In the evening is a group dinner where we can discuss all the amazing things we have seen!

We have plenty of time to explore the rest of Rome today – you could visit attractions like the ancient Roman forums, the mighty Colosseum and the Palantine Hill area (the ancient commercial and political heart of Rome). Or you could simply shop in some of Rome’s fashionable boutiques, and relax with a coffee or three!

Day 11: Venice

Venice, here we come! It's the city of canals and gondolas. We stop en route at Verona, known for the setting of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, where we visit Juliet’s Balcony and also see the impressive Arena (an ancient Roman amphitheatre).

You can also experience the ’Unleashed Untamed’ vaporetto ride on the Grand Canal, along with our optional gondola ride, which is the perfect way to see the city.

A walking tour with our Unleshed Trip Leader acquaints us with Salzburg Castle, Mozart’s Birthplace, Salzburg Cathedral and more. Then we enjoy a delicious Austrian dinner in a local brewery.

Day 14: Prague

We start the day with checking out Mauthausen, a former concentration camp. We have time to reflect and pay our respects to the victims of the Holocaust, before moving on to Czech Republic and its beautiful capital Prague. A walking tour of Prague with our Unleashed Trip Leader takes in the memorable Charles Bridge, Hradcany Castle, the Tyn Church and Wenceslas Square. Tonight, after an included dinner, perhaps we can check out why Prague’s nightlife is so famous!

Day 15: Prague

Prague is a much loved city amongst our Unleashed Crew – for good reason! We explore this Gothic city full of dramatic spires, cobbled alleys, rumbling trams, hand-made puppets and artists around Charles Bridge. Walk through the Jewish Quarter, visit Old Town Square and the medieval Town Hall, and maybe find an old traditional inn to try the excellent (and cheap) local beer.

Day 16: Berlin

Other attractions include world class museums such as the German History Museum and the Pergamon Museum, the massive Berlin Zoo, and a collection of unique shops, cafés and bars. Later in the night we can take an optional Nightlife tour and check out some of Berlin’s coolest nightspots!

Day 18: Amsterdam

It's a pretty long drive to the Netherlands today, which gives us chance to conserve our energy for Amsterdam! The 'Dam is a city of contrasts where bicycles, clogs, tulips and the infamous Red Light District live side by side in harmony. Just outside the city we stop at a traditional farm to see Schoolies in Amsterdamhow Dutch cheese and clogs (wooden shoes) are made. Once we check in to our accommodation, this evening we head into the heart of Amsterdam to see Dam Square with our Unleashed Trip Leader, and we can even explore the Red Light District itself!

Day 19: Amsterdam

Our included ‘Unleashed Untamed’ bike ride is the perfect way to tour the city, just like the locals. We’ll also have time to wander the canals or visit attractions like Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the Heineken Experience. Then we have dinner at a local restaurant, followed by an optional canal cruise on a private boat along Amsterdam’s waterways.

Day 20: London

In the morning we make our way to the Belgian city of Brugge, where a walking tour with our Unleashed Trip Leader covers the city’s excellent Gothic architecture. We’ll have free time here to seek out some Belgian specialities – chocolate, waffles and beer! Afterwards we drive to Calais in France to catch our ferry across the English Channel.
