A: For first-time solo travellers, our Prague Deluxe holiday is a winner. We recommend the six-day visit as a perfect introduction to our holidays for many (nerve-soothing) reasons. Steeped in history and rich in architecture, the Czech capital is only an hour-and-a-half flight from London and we stay in the same four-star hotel throughout so there is no uprooting. We understand and pay particular attention to any apprehension our guests may feel on this holiday, which has two tour managers instead of the customary one. Prague was the first holiday we offered, back when One Traveller launched in 2007. We know this charismatic city so well and our itinerary runs like clockwork.
Also see our Budapest holiday (Q2), where guests stay in one centrally located hotel and are looked after by two Tour Managers.
Our new six-day stay in Budapest will give you endless opportunities to drink in its bittersweet beauty. Its rich architecture stands in stark contrast to the bleak austerity under communism. Straddling the River Danube, the Hungarian capital is a magical combination of suburban Buda, with its historic castle district and medieval streets, and Pest, which boasts vast parliament buildings, riverside promenades and coffee houses. Excursions head to Lake Balaton, Szentendre as well as tours of the Parliament building (to see the crown Jewels) and the St. Stephens Basilica.
A: On our new 10-day Baltic Capitals holiday you can immerse yourself in three enchanting cities, with architectural influences from Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Russia.
