The programme of this tour is but a suggestion!
Your gateway to Germany is a different airport than we suggest? Are you not arriving and departing from the same airport? Is your group travelling to Germany by motorcoach and they need no ground transportation? You just want a different routing?

No worry, we will modify the tour according to your wishes.
