The expert guidance and commentary is provided by one person, the technical-organisational aspects are provided by the other one. Therefore, our client can pay maximum attention to the perception and commentary, while being the least disturbed and delayed by organisational activities. Thus, the intensity of sensations and experiences increases. Such management allows us to offer sightseeing of exceptionally large number of sights.

Our travel agency usually provides bus service from the point of departure along the route of the tour and back depending on the programme of the tour. The most common point of departure is Vienna. Exceptions are usually group tours and VIP tours, for which we provide complete transportation after agreement (i.e. transportation from the desired location). Thanks to our stable reputable bus operator we offer high-quality and reliable transportation. In an array of vehicles of German producer we transport different numbers of customers (from 3 to 60). The vehicles are excellently maintained and treated exclusively in branded service stations. Cultured and helpful drivers are a necessity.

Accommodation

We accommodate our clients in double and single rooms at three/four star hotels and guesthouses. However, the number of stars doesn’t play such a big role, we choose such, which besides having a high standard have some spirit, style, atmosphere and are romantic in a way.

Catering

Breakfasts are served as a part of the accommodation in the hotel (guesthouse). We offer other catering in carefully chosen, personally tested catering establishments, stylish and varied like chateau restaurants, shepherd’s huts, hunting restaurants, wine cellars, refectories in monasteries, etc. We choose the meals from local specialties, alternatively from European cuisine, as well as vegetarian meals. Special diets can be arranged in advance, when signing in for a tour.

Following the daily schedule, all parts of the programme are fast and well organized in the interest of the participants, including the lunch break. To ensure a smooth course and not to be delayed by individual choices and orders, the lunch is in principle provided by the tour organizer (menu chosen by clients). In this sense we offer full board, or simpli-half-board, i.e. breakfast and lunch. On the contrary, the dinner after the demanding daily programme can be enjoyed at ease.
