I'm really looking forward to our tour of the Imperial Cities next April 2019.
With 3 days in Vienna we'll have lots of time to explore the city.

Below are some fun things to do and see in Vienna during our free time.
I'm going to try to see as many as I can.  I'm hoping some adventurous travelers will want to join me.

Have you wondered what to do when you're overseas?  Do you have to follow the itinerary?  What do you do on a day in the city and you have some free time?

Join Evelyn Massaro and Kurt Hauswirth as they discuss the stuff that's not in the itinerary!  The two of them will have Tour Chats, where we take a dive into the fun things to do that are not on the schedule of events.  Maybe you will pack your swimsuit and jump in the thermal baths of Budapest; perhaps you'll have fun at one of many water parks in Vienna; spend some time with the animals of the Prague Zoo!

Come with us to the Imperial Cities of Prague, Vienna and Budapest to see one of the top Budapest attractions: Fisherman's Bastion.

It’s a fun way to travel on your own without being alone.
