Travel Opportunity! Space for Two on Upcoming South Danube Tour Hungary to Romania (May 31 to June 14th, 2014)

Unexpectedly we still have space for two persons on our South Danube tour that has been sold out for months. The June 2014 tour includes all flights on the new Dreamliner Boeing 787 airliner on Star-Alliance partner airline LOT, two nights and tours in Budapest, seven nights on the 5* luxury AmaPrima in a cabin with a large picture window, from Budapest, Hungary to Russe, Bulgaria (you will be travelling on the Danube through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria. AMAWaterways, owner of the AmaPrima, offers beautiful, spacious ships, free flowing wine/beer and superb meals at lunch and dinner, comprehensive touring programs at ports-of-call, and delightful evening entertainment on board. On disembarking from the cruise ship, you’ll experience a tour of Bulgaria, visiting leading cities of Plovdiv, Veliko Turnovo and the capital city of Sofia.

You can also stay for an optional third week tour of Romania, including visiting Transylvania and Bran Castle (home of Vlad the Impaler, Count Dracula) and lesser known but magnificent Peles Castle; touring the capital of Romania, Bucharest; and visiting several very scenic medieval hill towns that are UNESCO world heritage sites, like at Biertan and Sighisoara. This part of Europe is little visited by Canadians, but based on my own experiences leading a group a couple of years ago, the tour is very scenic and well worth the experience. We are holding the early booking price (which expired last October), so if you are interested, please view the attached brochure and give me a call (at 1-250-592-8897) or directly to Paul at Know the World Tours at 1-800-554-9754.
