1. Antwerp, Belgium "[S]ampled the best beers in the city at the Koninck brewery tour."

Lastminute.com reviewer Michael adds, "Antwerp has fantastic sights, particularly in the old town where we were based. We had amazing BBQ at Black Smoke and sampled the best beers in the city at the Koninck brewery tour. The weather was perfect for enjoying the garden at the Ruben's House and for exploring the small streets while stopping for beers and snacks along the way. I highly recommend Antwerp for a long weekend!"

3. Prague, Czech Republic "[T]ake a walking beer tasting tour of the hidden micro breweries."

Lastminute.com reviewer Lisa adds, "Look up the best local wine tasting/wine bars before you go, and take a walking beer tasting tour of the hidden micro breweries. Old Town Square is just lovely, and the Emblem Hotel, literally just off of it! The local food is much better than you think too!"

4. Stockholm-SE, Sweden "[A] beautiful island in the Archipelago, with a small brewery, a couple of cafes...]

Lastminute.com reviewer Gina adds, "Weather was mixed, a little rain on day 1, then sunshine and light breezes days 2 and 3. We had visited before, so we had already seen quite a few attractions, however, we love the city so much we just wanted to wander and see where it took us. We hired scooters to go round Djurgarden, which was great fun! We took the hop-on-hop-off-off boat around the islands (we bought an iVenture card at the main station - a must for anybody who hasn't been before as you can use the boats, public transport and get into most major sights). On day 2 we took a ferry to Fjaderholmsmarna, a beautiful island in the Archipelago, with a small brewery, a couple of cafes where you can play boules and watch the boats go by, and a few local handicraft shops. A really relaxing place. ...a beautiful island in the Archipelago, with a small brewery"

5. London, United Kingdom "Beautiful architecture around London Bridge Tube with the micro breweries."

Lastminute.com reviewer Rupert adds, "Weather was blustery and a little cold with a couple of Hail showers. However in the sheltered areas and when the sun shone it was perfect. We stayed and ate around Bermondsey which is a fantastic and quite a thriving area. Beautiful architecture around London Bridge Tube with the micro breweries. Even a weekend antiques market with some interesting stalls. We saw Aladdin which was amazing (whether you are 5 or 45 years old). Great to see parts of London not seen before."
