Have you ever fancied going on a “Grand Tour” like the early aristocrats, staying in multiple locations, but thought it too hard to organise?

Are you looking for a new kind of travel/guide book? Perhaps one which gives:
- A well planned multiple location tour taking in the sights of the five beautiful and distinctly different cities of Oslo (with its Viking longboats), Prague (with the lovely Charles Bridge), Budapest (with its magnificent Parliament Building and relaxing spas), Glasgow (with its Peoples Palace) and Liverpool (visiting the Beatles old haunts).
- Detailed information on how to organise your own Grand Tour (travel, accommodation, visitor attractions, location history and information, etc.)
- Tips on how to keep costs down whist away and website addresses to visit to obtain best value for money deals, promotions and discount vouchers.
- Tour destinations and attractions which are a little different to those normally on offer, some of which are “off the beaten track” and are not covered in other guides
- Gives daily itinerary’s to maximise the time spent in each location which you can follow, or tailor to suit yourself
- Has maps, pictures and information on locations and attractions (including address, opening times, web address, how to get there, history &/or other pertinent information)
- All the information required in one book rather than having to purchase and carry, several city /town different guides whilst on your Grand Tour
- Is suitable for all age groups and nationalities (particularly long haul visitors wishing to see as much of Europe as they can in a limited timescale, but not wanting to join a group arranged tour).
- Armchair traveller information and website addresses to enable them to “virtually” undertake the tour and visit attractions on line, if they cannot visit them in person

If so ... this could be the book for you!

Chapter 1 – European Grand Tours (At Petit Cost!) Overview

This ebook is an excerpt from my larger book "Grand European Tours (At Petit Cost!) and has been produced to enable readers to purchase an individual tour from the book which they can take with them, and refer to, whilst on tour. The book was written at the request of my friends and colleagues who asked me for details of holidays I had put together for myself as they too wanted a different kind of holiday from those currently on offer.

The complete book Grand European Tours (At Petit Cost!) Comprises of the following six Grand Tours" and visits the European cities and areas shown below. I hope, if this eBook is successful, to publish all of the tours as separate ebooks as well as new titles in the series:-

- Tour 1 – Welsh Marches, Shrewsbury, Wye Valley, Hereford & Monmouth & Birmingham (this Tour also includes Church Stretton, Ludlow, Leominster, Ledbury, Hay On Wye, Ross On Wye, Raglan Castle, Chepstow, Tintern Abbey, Castell Coch and Cardiff).

- Tour 2 – Towns & Cities of Catalonia & Paris (this tour also includes Lloret de Mar, Pineda De Mar, Blanes, Girona, Tossa Del Mar, Reus and Barcelona).

- Tour 3 – Liverpool (Beatles Theme), Oslo, Prague, Budapest & Glasgow (the tour covered in this eBook).

- Tour 4 – Paris & Châteaux, Venice, Rome, Sorrento & Amalfi Coast (this tour also includes the Château of Versailles, the Château de Fontainebleau, Burano, Murano, Lido, Naples, Herculaneum, Pompeii, Amalfi, Positano and Capri).

- Tour 5 – Cologne, Cities & Towns of the Rhine, Berlin & London (this tour also includes Koblenz, Dusseldorf, Ahr Valley, Remagen, Schloss Augustenburg, Bonn and Phantasialand Theme Park Brühl and includes short picturesque journeys by train).

- Tour 6 – Liverpool, Berlin, St Petersburg, Riga & Stockholm (this tour also includes Peterhof and the Catherine & Alexander Palaces at Pushkin (formerly known as Tsarskoe Selo)).

I feel the tours in the "Grand European Tours (At Petit Cost!) series are a breath of fresh air in that:

- Unlike some other travel books the individual tours were all planned and conducted on a very tight budget, using budget airlines, discount hotel deals, promotions and vouchers, all of which would appeal to today’s cost conscious viewers.

- Each tour is multi locational and puts together destinations you may not normally find together; additionally some of the tours visit sites and other attractions which are off the beaten track and not usually visited by tourists giving a holiday which is a little different. A couple of the tours also have underlying themes i.e. following in the footsteps of Ancient Rome, links to Napoleon or short picturesque Rhine & Ahr Valley train journeys.

- For the inexperienced traveller sites and attractions at each location within the tour are grouped together with details of how to get between them, ensuring that maximum cost and timescale benefits are achieved.

- It gives the viewer information on how to put together a Grand Tour themselves (including transportation, accommodation, venues to visit, venue information and the best web sites to consult, etc) and how to customise a tour to their own requirements.

- The tours are suitable to all age groups and nationalities (particularly long haul visitors wishing to see as much of Europe as they can in a limited timescale, but not wanting to join a group arranged tour).

- The tours can be made by Single travellers, couples, families and group travellers as well as people working within the travel industry looking for different ideas. Additionally virtual travellers can follow the tours from their armchairs by looking up the cities, attractions and venues on their computer should they wish.

One thing to bear in mind if you feel a little phased about putting together your own Grand Tour, pick somewhere easy to start with in countries you are comfortable with and don’t forget that part of the fun is in the planning and getting to your destinations.

Chapter 2 – Introduction To Tour 3

If like me, you are an independent traveller who seeks adventure, adores culture, antiquities, history and getting value for money, you may find the following multi location holiday itinerary of interest. I put this itinerary together for myself and found it to be one of the most enjoyable holidays I have ever had. I found that visiting a city for a short time gives me a taste of that city and helped me decide whether or not to return for a longer future stay. I find some Cities have the right feeling for me and I feel comfortable and at home in them, others I must admit, despite several visits, I cannot take to. You, I am sure, will experience this for yourself as you explore.

I travelled alone on this tour, but there is no reason why couples, families or groups could not undertake it.

You can make the tour as cheap or expensive as you wish by your own choice of accommodation, restaurants and methods of transport. To assist, as I guide, I have mentioned the accommodations and transport facilities I used, you of course are at liberty to use or amend these to suit your own tastes and requirements.

You can tailor the tour to suit yourself by:

- changing the start/end cities/towns

- changing the order in which you visit the cities/towns

- adding or dropping cities/towns from the itinerary

- changing venues and incorporating ones that have particular interest to yourself

- changing the number of days you spend in some, or all of the locations

In order to maximise my time, I usually decide which venues I wish to visit before I go on holiday and group them due to their location and opening times. I usually leave a couple of hours free though each day to explore, shop or just chill out. You will find you will need to factor in chilling out time each day, particularly in large busy cities, to avoid culture overload and fatigue. I hope you find the tour to be fun and not too gruelling and certainly not, as has been suggested by my Brother, reminiscent of the 1969 film "If It’s Tuesday, This Must
