On a European river cruise, we offer you an unforgettable journey through time and culture, breaking through any obvious veneer to the real destination beyond. You will see the classic sights at each stop, many on guided tours, but you will also get acquainted with lesser-known places that are often even more intriguing. Our itineraries are tailored specifically to our clients’ requirements, so you won’t come across unwanted multi-lingual commentaries.
The highly engaging and informative excursions already included with your river cruise sometimes take you further afield, so you can fully experience and appreciate the destinations we visit. For example, we take you to baroque Salzburg with its storybook Old Town; to medieval Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy where we enjoy a wine tasting; and to the scenic Puszta, where the beauty of the Hungarian Great Plain will take your breath away.
The history and culture of the places we visit are brought to life by our experienced tour managers and local guides. Caring, professional and extremely knowledgeable, they are like trusted friends who clearly adore the destinations and are passionate about sharing what they know. You will learn far more from them than you would from a guidebook.
