Once we are in mainland Europe we make our way towards Belgium, in the early afternoon we stop for Lunch, a picnic style buffet awaits you.

After Lunch, we continue to drive towards Brussels, the Capital of Belgium. On arrival in Brussels, we depart the coach and make our way on foot through the charming cobbled streets of Brussels to the Old Town. Here marvel at the "The Grand Place" or Grote Markt, which is the central square of Brussels. The Square provides wonderful opportunities to photograph the opulent guildhalls and the two larger and imposing edifices of the city's Town Hall, and the King's House or Breadhouse building containing the Museum of the City of Brussels. You can then continue down the adjacent street to see the Manneken Pis, an iconic 17th-century bronze fountain, depicting a naked little boy urinating into a fountain's basin. The Manneken Pis can often be found dressed in costume during festivals. Before departing Brussels, we board the coach and do a photo stop at a giant stainless steel atom, known as the "Atomium"; originally constructed for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair.

Note : On occasions there can be severe delays crossing the English Channel and therefore a city tour of Brussels will be replaced by city tour of Zurich on day four .

We then proceed towards our hotel and restaurant in the Netherlands. Depending on the hotel location we either go to the restaurant for our Indian dinner, or we head towards the hotel, where dinner will be served in one of the conference rooms by our very own caterers.

Currency

 

In most of Western Europe, the currency you will require will be Euros. However, you will need Swiss Francs (CHF) when travelling in Switzerland. It is possible to purchase items in Euros whilst in Switzerland (selected establishments); however it should be noted that the change will be given back in CHF.

 

Passengers should exchange any spending money for their holiday before they travel. Whilst on tour, it is very inconvenient, and not all places you visit will have ATMs or accept credit/debit cards.

 

We also advise our passengers to keep some change in coins on them whilst on tour as using toilets in many parts of Europe is not free.

 

USD, GBP or travellers' cheques are not widely accepted at locations in this tour.

 

Distances

 

An important point to note whilst on a touring holiday is that some long journeys are unavoidable, especially when travelling from city to city.

 

It is advisable that passengers carry necessities that they may need for the day such as water, dry snacks, cameras, etc., in their hand luggage.

 

It should be noted that the travel times are extensive on this tour.

Food

 

Breakfast will be provided at the hotels. The breakfast is usually in a separate dining area of the hotel and is usually a continental breakfast consisting of tea, coffee, bread, cereals, fruit and yoghurt.

 

Passengers can choose from different diets, including vegetarian, Jain or non-vegetarian (Halal will not always be available) meals. Passengers should advise the tour manager of their preferred diet on day one. The meals are pre-set buffet, and a menu choice is unavailable. Meals will be provided with Tap Water only. There are days when a pre-set continental meal will be provided.

 

Lunches are usually vegetarian only and are provided outdoors at a service station/rest area where limited or no seating is available. Lunch is served in a picnic-style buffet arrangement.

Hotels

 

Not all hotels on this tour will have air-conditioning.

 

Please also note that not all hotels provide a kettle. If you require warm milk for a baby, we advise you to carry your own bottle warmer and milk. Passengers may also want to take a small travel iron and hairdryer, as many hotel rooms may not have these facilities.

 

Some hotels in Europe, especially Germany, Switzerland, Austria & Italy, will provide two single beds put together as a Double occupancy room; we do contract with such hotels, and you should be prepared for such eventualities.

 

If you use services such as the phone or minibar or pay TV whilst in your room, you will have to pay the hotel directly when you check out; these services are not included in your tour cost.

 

The maximum occupancy per room on this tour is three person(s).

The maximum occupancy from March to May per room may be two person(s).

 

Other Advisories

 

General

 

Particular attention should be paid to the baggage allowance for this tour; this can be found on our general information page. Excess baggage may not be allowed on the coach. The WC facilities on the coach will be restricted on this tour.

 

The tour will merge and change tour reps/coaches partway through the tour.

 

High Altitude

 

You should only make trips to high altitudes if you feel healthy. The following recommendations apply:

 

Advanced age is no barrier to high altitude. The altitude is not a concern for blood pressure patients who are well-controlled with medication. Asthmatics can travel to high altitudes without any problems. High-altitude air is less polluted with particles that can cause an asthma attack. People with epilepsy who are well controlled with medication should be able to negotiate the altitude.

 

Pregnant women: There may be a particular risk for pregnancy even without pre-existing diseases over 2500-3000 metres. Caution is therefore advised if in doubt; please consult your doctor in advance.

 

Infants: Short-term stays at the mountain tops are unproblematic. Infants and young children often cannot equalise pressure during descent and are increasingly at risk of ear irritation. Regular swallowing (drinking, sucking on a bottle) during the descent can prevent aggravation. Because children can chill faster than adults, always pay attention to sufficient protection from the cold at high altitudes. Sunglasses and good sunscreen are necessary on the glaciers!

 

High altitude visits are not recommended for:

Lung and heart patients who are already short of breath while at rest or climbing stairs are advised not to stay at high altitudes. Patients with angina pectoris or severely impaired performance with heart enlargement and heart failure should not visit high altitudes. Those with medical therapy, coronary artery disease (angina pectoris) and heart enlargement should not visit high altitudes. Patients with a pronounced risk profile for cardiovascular disease (smoker + high blood pressure + diabetes + high blood fats + overweight + occasional chest pain) should consult the doctor before visiting high altitude. Do not stay at high altitude after having striated muscles or a stroke.

 

Keukenhof

 

The Keukenhof tulip garden visit will be timed; the gardens are very expansive, and the time given will give you a glimpse of the numerous bulbs. Therefore, you should go through the Keukenhof website in advance to distinguish what key sights you want to cover in your limited time.

 

Louvre

 

The Louvre entrance ticket is not included; please note that the Louvre covers an expansive area of thousands of artefacts, the time given here is limited and should be utilised to see the key artefacts such as the Mona Lisa or Marley Horses etc.

 

Vatican

 

When visiting the Vatican City and St Peter's Basilica, we highly advise that modest clothing is worn as it is a place of worship and entrance is subject to attire.

 

Venice Gondola

 

The gondola boat ride in Venice will be shared with the group, and private gondolas are unavailable. The gondola will hold five people. Gondolas will be provided on a shared basis.

 

Versailles Gardens

 

Your entrance is only into the Gardens of Versailles, and it may not be possible for you to enter the Chateau even if you are willing to do this on your own due to the number of visitors and time constraints.

 

Disneyland® Paris

 

Disneyland Paris can get busy, especially at peak times, so it makes sense to orientate yourself before you arrive by going onto the official app. There's a lot to see, so you might like to prioritise your must-do attractions to avoid disappointment. But one should try not to miss the famous Disney Parades when the much-loved Disney characters take to the streets for a unique and interactive experience. Unfortunately, you will not stay in Disneyland until it closes, so you will not see the evening firework, Parade or illuminations. Should you wish to do this, you will need to make your own way back to the hotel, and you will miss the dinner and transfers for which no compensation will be due.

 

The resort comprises Disneyland Park, packed with rides and attractions, and Walt Disney Studios Park. Your tickets will allow you access to any one of these parks.

 

Pick up and Drop off points & Times

 

Passengers should arrive at their pick-up point no later than 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Your pick-up point, address and time will be stated on your invoice. If you have selected a pick-up time outside of Wembley, Southall or East Ham, then you will be confirmed your pick-up time.

 

Return journeys from the continent are scheduled to arrive at Dover or Folkestone between 19.00hrs and 20.00hrs. We will then proceed to the original pick-up points in London (arrival time between 22.30hrs and 00.30hrs+1)

 

Outside London pick-up points: Transportation may be arranged by a private car, minibus or an alternative coach for your journey to and from London. On rare occasions, there may be up to an hour wait for a connecting transfer on the return. Passengers can expect to receive a call from Star to confirm details a day before departure. Star Tours reserves the right to amend any pick-up time 12 hours before departure.

 

The below pick-up points may not be available for this tour:

Visas & Passports

 

A passport valid for three months beyond the length of stay and issued within the past ten years is required by all nationals. If you hold an Indian, Pakistani, or Bangladesh Passport, you must obtain a Schengen visa before travelling.

 

Many nationalities, such as British, EU and American nationals, do not require Schengen visas. Should you need further clarification, please get in touch with us.

 

Weather

 

Weather in much of Western Europe tends to be the same as in England and is unpredictable. Therefore, regardless of the time of the year, it is advisable to carry an umbrella.

 

Temperatures vary from place to place. Therefore, it is a good idea to check online for average temperatures for the destination(s) being visited, depending on the time of the year. On a multi-destination tour, passengers will likely travel through various weather fronts; whilst in Switzerland, during excursions to mountain tops, passengers may experience temperatures between 0 °c and 2 °c while simultaneously experiencing temperatures of over 30 °c whilst they are in France.

 

Passengers can be well prepared by carrying appropriate clothing, footwear and accessories. Passengers should also be aware that during the winter months, most of the sightseeing will be in the dark as, in Europe, the day becomes dark very early during winter.

 

Wheelchairs

 

We will accept lightweight manual wheelchairs for travel, subject to them being capable of being stowed in the luggage hold of the coach. It is also essential that a family member is also on tour to push their wheelchair. Star Tours will also request hotels for suitably equipped rooms; however, this is only on a request basis and cannot be guaranteed. It should be noted Mt Titlis & Eiffel Tower are not fully accessible for wheelchair users. In addition, Brussels, Luzern, Lion Monument, Pisa, Rome, Venice, and Florence will have cobbled streets, which may not be suitable for wheelchairs.

 

The trains and platforms at Trummelbach Waterfalls will not be fully accessible for those in wheelchairs.

 

In most of Europe, the use of child seats in coaches is mandatory for children under the age of 12 or who are shorter than 150 cm. Children under 7 years old or less than 125 cm tall must use a child seat with a harness or a restraint system. Children between 7 and 12 years old or between 125 and 150 cm tall must use a booster seat or a seat cushion. It is the responsibility of the child's parent or guardian to provide the appropriate child seat for their child.
