Please Note - The tour has been designed with past feedback in mind, and that is, to limit 1 night stops to a bare minimum. To counteract this, there are a few longer ‘transit’ days, and although a Scenic and direct route will be provided, those days will be longer than days on the rest of the tour. With that said, the tour does allow for a rest day in Soissons following the longer drive from Calais, and 4 nights in Baden-Baden following the longer drive from Soissons, where in both locations, the mileage whilst in these locations, can be as much or as little as you so please, and there are a lot more shorter mileage days, then longer days.
