Nigel and Shelagh Buck from helloworld Ohakune are offering this fully escorted tour to Europe specifically to go to Oberammergau to see the Passion Play.
The trip will depart from Auckland on 17 June flying via Singapore to Munich. We will have one night and then most of the next day before we join our Globus tour. This tour visits some major cities in Central Europe before we reach Oberammergau for a 2 night stay so we can attend the Passion Play. The tour visits Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Vienna, Salzburg and Oberammergau before ending in Munich on 30 June. When we return to Munich, the choice is yours, you can return to New Zealand via Singapore, stopping over there if you wish. Or travel on in Europe or UK. Nigel and Shelagh will be going on to UK for a couple of weeks before returning to New Zealand. We are happy for you to join us on the flight from Munich to London and then on the return flights to New Zealand around 15 July.
The 42nd performance of the historic Passion Play is the highlight of the tour. Usually performed by the people of Oberammergau, every 10 years, it was sad it could not go ahead in 2020 but now we have another chance to see and experience the show.
We appreciate that Covid 19 will still be part of the mix but feel that by June, travel will have opened up sufficiently for us to safely make the trip. All Participants must be fully vaccinated including the booster and have a vaccination certificate which you can download from “My Covid”, the vaccine pass we use in NZ will not be enough for overseas countries. There will be covid tests at some or all borders but things keep changing and we will keep you informed about those. All tests will be a cost to you extra to the tour cost.
The cost of the tour is $10499.00 which covers the tour, the flights, one night in Munich with dinner and breakfast and a 2day Singapore stopover. You can add extra activities to the Central Europe Tour but these will be extra costs. Travel after 30 June will be at your expense.
We do have spare places on the tour but would ask you to contact us soon so we can finalise the group and make use of any earlybird airfares, we are in discussion with Singapore Airlines about prices at the present time.
