When we talk about The Road Less Traveled, we really mean it. Every travel company has its own imprint and style. Ours is a little different. If you want to veer off the well-trodden tourist circuit and drill down below the stereotypes, you’ll be happy with what’s on our menu…
We promise: We’ll never take you to Mad King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle (beautiful, but it’s basically a late 19th- century remake). We won’t be visiting the Oktoberfest (plenty of fun, but everybody goes there and it’s just too crowded). And, though we’ll include a stop in Brussels, we’ll concentrate on the beautiful smaller towns and villages of Flanders that many people miss.
We gravitate toward the back-roads, hidden corners and quiet spots as well as the pulsing new finds, edgy and unusual venues and under-the-radar stops.
Our safaris will let you experience less discovered Europe – places like northern Bavaria and hidden hot spots in eastern Bavaria, Flanders (in Belgium), eastern France, Saxony and the Ore Mountain region, Baden and the Palatinate in western Germany, eastern Bohemia and northern Moravia (in addition to Prague!) in today’s Czech Republic.
We’ll visit an outstanding winemaker in a town nobody’s ever heard of and help you comb the hot new shopping circuit in Europe’s Attic.
We’ll bypass the most most-visited truffle area and instead focus on the lesser-known region where most of France’s truffles come from.
We’ll plan all-day shopping at an antique market where Americans never venture.
We’ll track down the fun new wine bar and the up-and-coming vintner, the old mill filled with antique and vintage treasures, the city that still has its medieval town wall and the castle where you can spend the night.
Expect the unexpected and get ready to experience a side of Europe you’ve never seen before!
