“I have been fortunate to enjoy four trips with Doctors-on-Tour since 2009 - to Ecuador, Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos, India and Bali. All these tours were wonderful. Well-organized, excellent accommodations, top notch guides, remarkable CME experiences that broaden one's outlook on medicine and really great leaders of the tours. You should seriously consider taking one of these exotic trips. Beats lying on a beach!”

Dr. Linda Rapson, Toronto – 2013

Begin your Eastern European adventure...

Go behind what was once the "Iron Curtain" and unravel the complex history of these Bohemian nations as we explore the Imperial Cities of Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic. Start in Poland, in romantic Krakow then travel south through the majestic Tatra Mountains and pass through some of the most scenic parts of Slovakia with its magnificent castles and monasteries. The legendary Danube welcomes you to energetic Budapest. Discover the picturesque Hungarian countryside as you continue to Bad Sarvar, one of the Royal Spa Towns of Europe and pamper yourself at a luxury spa hotel with its therapeutic mineral hot springs. Then to Austria’s capital, Vienna, known for the waltz, delectable pastries, and awe-inspiring Habsburg palaces. The picturesque medieval town of Český Krumlov in South Bohemia beckons before ending your tour at beautifully-preserved Prague. And your group leaders, Dr. Steve & Marg Szarka, will ensure their combined Hungarian and Polish heritage really bring this fascinating region of Europe alive for you with their local knowledge and insights.
