4. A Day Bag (Small backpack or Satchel) – Make sure you’ve got a little bag for all your essentials in the day, a bottle of water, tissues etc. Also your bound to pick up small mementos whilst exploring and sightseeing, postcards and such like, so a little bag will be great to store all those little treasures.
5. Sun Protection -Sunglasses, Sunhat & Sunscreen – Especially in Europe, make sure you pack whatever you need to keep those rays at bay! With days full of sightseeing you don’t want the sun to hinder you.

7. A Mini Travel Guide Book – Impress the group with your knowledge of that hidden, but must see, spot in Amsterdam or a little known fact about the Eiffel Tower. This also doubles up as a little something to read whilst travelling.
8. A few Key Phrases – Have a little note of key phrases to hand, the please’s and thankyou’s, the hello’s and goodbye’s of wherever you’re visiting.
9. Local Delicacies – Make sure you try the local delicacies whilst exploring any city, stop for snails or frogs legs whilst in Paris, or grab mussels & fries on the go in Bruges. Also, why not grab a little gift for those back home of all the tasty local produce you’ve tried and tested.
10. A Map – Finally, a map, you’ll want to see everything in the time you have, so a handy little pocket map will be perfect to get from the A to B, in the quickest way possible so you don’t miss anything and arrive back in time for the coach!
