Do I Need a Visa for My Trip? American passport holders do not require a visa for traveling in Europe. EU citizens need only their ID for travel within the EU.

Can I Choose Any Date for a Self-Guided Tour? Absolutely! You have the freedom to select your start date. Once we receive your order, we'll confirm accommodation availability and finalize your dates. Remember, most Czech castles are closed on Mondays, so plan accordingly.

What Should I Pack? A basic list of recommended gear can be found in our Equipment section. You'll also receive a detailed packing list in your information packet before departure.
