Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help. We can create an independent travel experience to fit your needs—and if you desire, arrange for a local guide.
The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
A European Delivery Self-Drive Experience
Two great world cities in their own right, a journey from Munich to Paris offers myriad opportunities to explore the superb places in between. Take in the gorgeous Alpine surroundings at Mad King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle. Then, explore the revamped Zurich-West, surrounding yourself with buzzing local boutiques, restaurants, and galleries. Deeper into France, the road divides: follow the southern route and you’ll stray into the tiled roofs, pinot noir and chardonnay of Burgundy; veer north and you encounter Champagne country, Chardonnay with bubbles, and flying buttresses. Either fork leads to the gustatory riches of French haute cuisine and beyond, the pulse and passion of the City of Light.

I don’t know how B&R does it – the quality of their trips is so consistently high! Just when we think they couldn’t do anything as good as our last trip, they do! Another fantastic experience with B&R.Carolyn Zaslaw
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
This self-drive trip includes short, easy going city walks. After time behind the wheel of your new BMW, walking is a great way to stretch your legs while you explore charming neighbourhoods.
“I can’t say I really work out, but I do walk a couple of times a week at home.”
Country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.Read more on our Activity Levels
