    Every Christmas, since medieval times, towns and cities across Germany come alive with the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas. Kitchener City Hall is home to Canada's original Christkindl Market - since 1997. We have once again been awarded "Top 100 Festivals & Events in Ontario." This year you'll notice more decorated outdoor huts and eating stands along King Street where you can enjoy Gluhwein, sweet and savoury foods to eat now, take home or wrap up for gift giving. Shop outside and inside from 100 vendors while you listen to choirs, bands and dance groups. Experience the train room, blacksmith demonstrations, live nativity and visit with our folkloric characters.

    ************* IMPORTANT NOTIFICATIONS *************

    Our trips are for all ages: Our tours are perfectly designed for all ages. However, they are often fast-paced, and sometimes tiring, packed with adventure, new experiences and feel-good moments. Therefore, we ask that anyone wanting to travel with us carefully consider whether any PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS prevent you from fully enjoying our trips.

    Traveling with children: Due to the fast-paced nature of our group tours, all children require adult supervision. Some of our more active excursions may not be suitable for children under the age of 8.

    Embrace the nature of Group Travel: To get the most out of your tour, pack a positive attitude and an open mind. These are most certainly valuable when travelling in a group. Despite the very best intentions and planning, things can and do go wrong and occasionally we encounter problems beyond our control, such as delayed public transport and adverse weather conditions. In such situations we ask for your patience and we will endeavor to keep as close to our scheduled itinerary as possible.
