River Cruises

Glide gently along some of the world's best known rivers and experience historic cities in Europe and beyond, with a river cruise! River cruises are becoming a more and more popular option for travellers looking to experience a range of destinations in a smaller passenger group, benefiting from local, knowledgable guides. 

River Cruises allow you to travel straight to the heart of cities and enjoy the freedom to experience local cuisines, bars and attractions, with many river cruise companies offering overnight stays in key locations so you have the freedom to explore without rushing back to the ship. You'll experience incredible scenery between each stop, and can experience a wide range of landscapes on your trip, with many rivers running through farmland and vineyards, woodland or jungles, medieval villages and stunning architecture. 

All river cruises offer exciting excursions with first class guides – trips include walking tours, hiking, cycling, rock climbing, and white water rafting to name but a few. You can choose to simply take a relaxing stroll or try something more energetic, depending how the mood takes you.  

Check out some of our European options along the Seine, the Rhine, the Danube, the Douro and the Rhone below, or ask us about more adventurous journeys along the Mekong, the Nile, the Yangtze or the Ganges!
