Many people who go on our Amsterdam tours say they would like to have an overnighter

thing—Amsterdam by night. Amsterdam has possibly the most diverse nightlife in the
world. With more than 40 concerts and theatrical performances a day, 1,400 cafes and
bars, 40 discos, 800 restaurants, 40 theaters, and hundreds of establishments that can’t be
categorized, Amsterdam’s nightlife truly has something for everyone. We’ll leave
Saturday morning, have lunch (not included) en route at a Dutch restaurant, and visit one
of the oldest wooden-shoe makers in the area. Here, you can see how shoes are made and
can buy shoes as well as other Dutch souvenirs, before we arrive in Amsterdam in late
afternoon. Upon arrival, we’ll have a city orientation to give you a feel of the city. Then
you have the whole night—until 3 a.m.—to explore this wonderful place. Don’t miss this
adventure. This tour is restricted to participants 18 years old or older (no children, no

A fairy-tale-like wonder world beckons you to this breathtaking Alpine scenery and

Bavaria, the 19th century “Fairy Tale King” who built the lavish castles that are among
the greatest tourist attractions in Germany. After breakfast (not included), we will tour

ornate wall frescoes of Germanic legends stimulated his romantic dreams and his love for
the Alps. He used the dramatic backdrop of this mountainous scenery for the castles
Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Next, we visit Neuschwanstein, King Ludwig's
magnificent and most famous castle built in the style of a medieval Camelot and became

Three Overnights in Provence and the Camargue
Explore the South of France
Thursday-Tuesday, April 8-13

Romans! Vincent van Gogh! More Romans! Pablo Picasso! Saint Louis! French Popes!
French cowboys! Paul Cezanne! Biblical saints! The Camargue, a French nature
preserve! Join us in celebrating the end of winter as we once again explore this varied and
fascinating portion of southern France. After an evening departure, we’ll drive through
the night and begin our sightseeing Friday morning at the magnificent Pont du Gard, the
three-tiered Roman aqueduct built during the reigns of Claudius and Nero. You’ll have
time for pictures and a personal inspection of this World Cultural Heritage site before we
leave for the village of St. Remy. In St. Remy, we’ll walk through the old town, including
the birthplace of Nostradamus. Just outside of town, you’ll have a choice of destinations.
An entire Roman town called Glanum has been excavated and it’s possible to walk the
streets of this ancient site. Across the road is the Monastery Saint-Paul de Mausole,
where Vincent van Gogh was hospitalized for an entire year and where many of his most
famous paintings were done. His actual rooms have been preserved along with a very
good explanation of his life and illness. Admission to one or the other of these sites is
included. From St. Remy, we travel to Arles, our residence for the next three days. After
checking into our hotel in the center of the city, your guide will familiarize you with
everything from the Roman monuments to the medieval remnants of an independent
Arles to the city of van Gogh, Gauguin, and Picasso. Your evening will be free to sample
the delights of regional Provencal cuisine at the numerous restaurants of Arles. After a
breakfast at our hotel on Saturday morning, you’ll have free time to explore the city or to
sample the delights of the largest street market of Provence, stretching for two kilometers
along the city streets. Provence is famous for its olive oils and olive products. Also for
sale are olive wood utensils, oil soaps, lavender, special herbs of Provence, red rice from
the Camargue, sea salt, and the famous blue and yellow fabrics emblematic of southern
France. Saturday afternoon will include a visit to the capital city of Aix-en-Provence.
This city dates back to Roman times and has been a symbol of elegance and culture in
southern France ever since it was the residence of Good King Rene in the 15th Century.
Our city tour guide will show us all of the major sites in the old city and tell us about one
of the city’s favorite sons, the impressionist painter Paul Cezanne. We’ll visit the
Cezanne studio where the artist worked during the last years of his life. After breakfast on
Sunday, we’ll drive through the Camargue marshland, a nature preserve with hundreds of
bird species and the famous Camargue bulls and Camargue horses. We’ll visit the two
largest towns in the Camargue, Saints Maries de la Mer and Aigues-Mortes. Stes. Maries
is the legendary spot where several biblical figures, including two Saint Marys, Lazarus,
Mary Magdalene, and others came ashore after being set adrift in a boat with no sails or
oars. Two Saint Marys and their servant Sarah, the patron saint of Europe’s gypsies, are
buried in the village church. Aigues-Mortes is one of the most unusual cities in Europe.
In the 13th Century, King Louis IX of France (St. Louis) finally obtained a foothold on
the Mediterranean coast between the German Empire’s province of Provence and the
territories of the Spanish King of Aragon. He built a large fortress to secure his new lands
and to be a launching site for the seventh crusade. That fortress is now the city of Aigues-
Mortes. The fortress is now silted in and several kilometers from the coast, but there is a
full city largely within the original walls. We’ll have several hours to explore the town or
walk the old battlements or even take a leisurely boat ride into the Camargue, during
which you can see how many species of birds you can spot and see a French cowboy
show you how the bulls are herded. At the end of the day, we’ll return to Arles for our
last night in Provence. On our last day, we’ll visit the city of Avignon. A city tour guide
will show us the city which was the home of the papacy for most of the 14th Century, and
was then the home of the anti-Pope during the Great Schism. We’ll also get to see the
famous bridge, the Pont d’Avignon, made famous in the French folk song. After the tour,
we’ll remain in the city long enough for those who wish to see the interior of the Palace
of the Popes to do so at their own expense, before beginning our return trip to Germany
in late afternoon. Please bring passport or travel papers and euros for meals and
admissions which are optional during the tour. Travel documents are the responsibility of
the customer. Tour price includes bus transportation, three nights in a three-star hotel,
three breakfasts, city tours as described above and admission to one of the two sites in St.
Remy described above, and a USO tour guide.

Luxembourg and Mettlach
Saturday, April 10

Mettlach is an idyllic small town near the loop of the Saar River. Surrounded by luscious
forests, Mettlach is a well-known spa and health center but is mostly known as the
administrative and production headquarters for Villeroy & Boch Company. Mettlach is
paradise for lovers of elegant tableware. The main V&B store and the adjacent seconds
outlet offer an ample selection of the entire china, glass, and silverware production. In the
town, you also find outlets for gift items, textiles, a special Christmas store, and more.
Just wear comfortable walking shoes, Mettlach is on a hill and we walk over
cobblestones. In the afternoon, we go to the green heart of Europe: Luxembourg. We start
out with a visit of the U.S. military cemetery where General Patton is buried.
Luxembourg City, the capital of the Grand Duchy by the same name, is an eminent
symbiosis of a dynamic, modern metropolis and the charm of a quaint old town. A
natural ravine is the main reason that Luxembourg has been adopted into the UNESCO
World Heritage Program. Inside the rocks of this ravine, tunnels were dug in the 17th
century for defense; they were used as shelter from bombardment during World War II.
Now the ravine serves a more peaceful purpose: it is the favorite recreation area of the
Luxemburgers who like to stroll along the small, tree-lined rivers Alzette and Petrusse
enjoying a myriad of flowers and open air artwork in the summer. After a short
windshield tour, we walk past all landmarks in the center of Luxembourg city followed
by free time. Children are welcome, but the tour is not stroller friendly. Bring euro for
food and personal expenses, and a VAT form for V&B or outlet purchases. Tour price
includes transportation, Luxembourg city tour, Mettlach city orientation, and USO tour
guide.

Munich City Tour
Dachau Concentration Camp
Saturday, April 10

Nestled in natural Bavarian settings, Munich is Deutschland at its picture-perfect best!
Munich is Germany’s third largest city and is the heart of German technology; but at the
same time, its traditional local costumes, music, dance, food, and festivals make Munich
the stuff of guidebook cliché. We’ll take a walking tour of the old-city. We’ll see the
beautiful Residenz, Marienhof, Frauenkirche, Michaelskirche, Palace of Justice, the
Viktualian Market, and more. Then you’ll have free time to enjoy the city on your own,
and maybe, have lunch (not included) at the world-famous Hofbrauhaus. Perhaps you’ll
want to do a bit of shopping or browse about the lovely city on your own. We’ll end the
day with a more sobering visit to the first Nazi concentration camp in Dachau. The camp
stands today as a memorial to the horrors endured during World War II. This tour is not
recommended for young children because of the graphic nature involved with the
Dachau portion of the trip and because of the ambitious tour through Munich. Bring
euro for meals, and wear comfortable shoes. Tour price includes transportation, Munich
city tour, entrance to Dachau, and USO tour guide.

Valkenburg Caves and Lindt Chocolate Factory Outlet
Monday, April 12

Join us on this special tour featuring two unique destinations. Under the Castle of
Valkenburg near Maastricht in the Netherlands is the Velvet Cave, a labyrinth of
passages more than a thousand years old and rediscovered in 1937. Once used as an
escape route, the passages enabled the knights and their warriors to secretly vanish from
the castle and attack the enemy from the back. During the German occupation and World
War II, the cave served as shelter for Jewish people, locals, and American troops. Among
the many passages, you’ll find a marvelous chapel and its many impressive mural
carvings, inscriptions, and sculptures. After visiting the cave and castle, you will have
time for lunch and shopping in the charming historical town. On our return home, we’ll
stop at two factory outlets where you can stock up on Easter chocolates and cookies. We

you’ll take part in an authentic medieval feast. The Lord of the Manor will welcome you
with a goblet of Mosel wine and explain the medieval customs and table manners for the
feast. Servants and maids in period costumes serve you lavishly and pass you water to
wash yours hands so that you can eat with your fingers. Bread and lard make the rounds
while a hot and spicy soup is steaming in the cookery pot. Huge drumsticks are served for
the main course. Jesters in medieval outfits provide entertainment and authentic music.
Old “torture instruments” are displayed, and the evening climaxes with the traditional
knighting ceremony. Even though you may have traveled all over the world and eaten in
the most basic or most exclusive restaurants, this kind of feasting will be an experience
you’ll never forget. It is simply an adventure that must be experienced. Go on a journey

St. Mihiel, France
Saturday, April 24

The World War I battlefield at St. Mihiel, France, is the site of the U.S.’s Saint Mihiel
Offensive and the debut of the American 1st Army under General John Pershing. St.
Mihiel has been called “the birth of an army.” General Pershing was the cavalry officer
who defied all the Allies to make war-winning tactics and strategy here. It was the
beginning of the Patton mystique; it was where American air power was born, and
combined with all-ground power, won the day. It was the first all-American ground battle
of World War I, the St. Mihiel Offensive. Our military history tour will take us to the area
around St. Mihiel, close to Verdun. We’ll get a background briefing while on the bus, and

personalities involved right where it occurred. We will see Pershing’s headquarters, Les
Eparges, the Cross of the Redoubts trenches, Montsec Memorial, Patton’s attack corridor,
the road of the first air-land battle operations, the 89th Division Sector, Ansoncourt Farm,
