    Loved the day in Regensburg and the optional tour to the Palace and the Market at night. Would have liked to have optional seating during breakfast and lunch as one of the great experiences of traveling is to get to know persons from other places and countries.

    The Villages we went to we’re quite charming. Sometimes too much time allotted for a Xmas market (Erlanger) and others not enough time. Purchasing the optional tour of Prague was wonderful. Beautiful city.

    Not enough time in markets and this is supposed to be a Christmas market tour. Never even saw a quarter of the big night market as a Saturday evening, extremely busy and had only an hour.

    Locations were good, though there were times when you felt like you were too rushed. Couple things were worthless like gluwein party in Emmersdorf and Heurigher in Vienna that would have been better left off and given more time for other things.
