River cruise and stay holidays

Enjoy the best of both worlds

Join one of our river cruise and stay holidays and you can combine a relaxing river cruise on the Danube, Douro, Rhine or Elbe with a break in some of Europe's most fascinating cities.

These holidays have been carefully designed so you can spend longer in some of Europe’s most celebrated cities, and we have hand-chosen hotels in Vienna, Prague, Bern, Davos, Berlin, Budapest, Lisbon and Copenhagen, as well as in the Romanian region of Transylvania.

Alternatively, if you want something a little different, we offer French barge cruises – stay in one hotel and explore the French countryside by intimate canal barge during a series of day cruises.

Here are just some of the extras we include as standard….

  • VIP door-to-door travel service included on 2020 river cruise and stay holidays and 2019 cruises of 11 nights or longer

French barge cruises

There’s no better way to visit the pretty villages, vineyards and historic sites of rural France than aboard an intimate barge. These week-long cruises combine the charm of leisurely day-cruising, with a relaxing stay in a carefully-selected hotel.

Celebrity guests on board

We are delighted to announce that we will be joined by a host of special celebrity guests on our 2019 river cruises. John Suchet, Ann Widdecombe, Martin Bell and Terry Waite will be joining a selection of cruises to bring a fascinating extra dimension to your holiday.
