Highlights

 

Sail past pretty riverside towns, hill-perched castles and medieval villages aboard a spectacular 17 day Budapest to Amsterdam river cruise.

The waters of the Danube are legendary. Winding its way through 10 countries and past countless postcard-worthy towns and cities, the Danube is arguably one of the most famous river journeys in the world. This unforgettable 17 day voyage takes you through the most picturesque sections of the Danube as it snakes from Budapest in Hungary to Amsterdam in Holland. You embark from Budapest, but not before taking in all that this enchanting city has to offer, such as the opulent House of Parliament, the Royal Palace and Matthias Church. You then set out for Bratislava in Slovakia and gain insight into one of Europe’s youngest capital cities courtesy of a guided tour. The next stop is Vienna, the ever-elegant and graceful Imperial city of Austria. Take a turn around Ringstrasse to see Hofburg Palace, among other landmarks, and depart for Durnstein in the Wachau Valley.

Make the trip to the Benedictine Abbey near Melk, and spend time in Passau, Regensburg and Nuremberg. The cruise itinerary takes you through Bamberg, Wurzburg, Wertheim and Miltenberg, where you will enjoy guided city or walking tours in each. Look out for Lorelei Rock – named after the eponymous mythical siren – as you travel to Koblenz, and enjoy a pitstop in Cologne, the capital of the Rhineland. Finally, you arrive into Amsterdam. See the city’s most popular monuments and landmarks on a sightseeing tour, and then get back onto the water; this time in a glass-top boat for a cruise through Amsterdam’s world-famous canal system.

This cruise is available on a reverse route, from Amsterdam to Budapest.

On very rare occasions, other events such as heavy fog, a damaged lock, or an incapacitated vessel blocking the river, may impact a sailing. These events typically occur with little or no notice. In the event that a cruise is partially or completely impacted, the itinerary will be operated by deluxe motor coach, accompanied by a Tour Manager, with overnights in hotels. The itinerary will include as many of the originally scheduled sightseeing features as possible, considering the travel time and distances required, as well as meals. 
These alternative services will be provided at no additional charge.

Tipping: Whilst gratuities for the Tour Manager and a driver are included. If you have enjoyed the service of the cruise staff, a tip (while not compulsory) is appropriate towards the end of your tour.
