There’s nothing quite as thrilling as watching something come back to life, and in Berlin and Dresden you’ll experience this profound transformation firsthand as you explore two cities, once lost in suspended animation, now thriving.
Since the fall of the Berlin wall, the city has become one of the world’s hippest destinations with cutting-edge architecture, varied nightlife, and avant-garde fashion. Dresden’s baroque splendor and striking silhouette, with its delicate spires and soaring towers, are even more beautiful when you realize the city was destroyed overnight in 1945 in an Allied air raid. Along with these two success stories, you’ll tour the fairytale kingdom of Prague and explore its meandering cobblestone streets and squares that frame a bustling cosmopolitan city centre. Unwind from the day’s history lessons in luxury accommodations that offer the finest services and attention to detail.
Dive into Berlin’s turbulent past on a walking tour with your private guide and visit the Berlin Wall, the site of Hitler’s Bunker, Checkpoint Charlie, the Jewish Synagogue and other landmarks that paint a painful history. Switch gears and enjoy a journey through the beauty of the city as you explore the captivating architecture of Potsdam, the marvelous gardens of Sanssouci, and the famed Roman baths. Arrive in stunning Dresden and tour the Semper Opera, the Elbe-castles, and “Blue Wonder” bridge, one of the most beloved landmarks in Dresden. In Prague, wander the beautiful south Bohemian countryside with its picturesque villages and many ponds, and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cesky Krumlov. As you take in magical views of Prague Castle from Charles Bridge, you’ll come back to life as well.

"Melissa Field was extremely helpful! She was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! She kept me updated on the status of everything and provided timely correspondence. She took ownership for any problems I had and remedied them. I had the most amazing time of my life in Iceland and Paris! I would not have experienced everything without the help of Kensington Tours."

"All of our guides were beyond fabulous! Our time in Dublin was much too short, would have loved to stay there at least one more full day. Would recommend extending this package to 15 days for any future visits. The train to Edinburgh was super! Beautiful scenery and great steak pies!"

Really made for a great journey every time. Each hotel was clean, upgraded and staffed with knowledgeable and friendly folks. Breakfasts were complete -- almost too much to eat.

"My husband and I took a 3 week vacation to southern Europe and North Africa and had a great time. All the guides were very knowledgeable and bent over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangements made by Kensington went off without a hitch. This is our second trip with Kensington (we went to Peru in 2009) and we will certainly book with them again."

"Thank you for your follow up, we both loved our time in Croatia. It’s really a beautiful place, especially the coast. Your choice of hotels was great. It was an incredible view from the Bellevue hotel in Dubrovnik and the Vestibule in Split was in the best possible location. We were able to relax in our room listening to the wonderful singers in the courtyard and its central location made it so easy to walk anywhere we wanted to see with ease. "

"We just returned from a 10 day trip to Paris and Normandy. We spent three nights in Paris and then enjoyed a seven night cruise on the Seine to Normandy with AMA Waterways. The time in Paris was well spent and has piqued our interest to return for a more thorough visit. Guide Wafaa Lankey was superb in our visit to Versailles. The Seine cruise was relaxing and beautiful. So many wonderful little towns and we wished we had more time in each one to explore and enjoy.
We traveled to Croatia and Slovenia using Kensington earlier this year which was a fantastic trip."
