This enchanting holiday begins in Switzerland, with 2 night stays in both Zurich and Lucerne. In the midst of Switzerland’s stunning scenery and world famous cities we will enjoy lake-side excursions and Alpine vistas.
After our Alpine experience we board our deluxe riverboat for a leisurely 7-night cruise through Switzerland, France, Germany and Holland. Our cruise takes us to the Alsatian capital of Strasbourg, the legendary Black Forest region, Cologne with its majestic Cathedral, the historic university town of Heidelberg and Amsterdam with its legendary canals.
Our riverboat, the new Amadeus Queen (launched in 2018) is a modern ship specially built for cruising European rivers, combining the luxuries of a 5-star hotel with innovative design and First Class service.
You will enjoy superb dining throughout the cruise with special theme dinners. As a bonus, quality wines from Europe’s most famous wine regions are included with every dinner. The nightly entertainment features folkloric and musical performances and informative lectures on our destinations.
All cabins have a panoramic window, and the Sun Deck invites you to relax outdoors, while offering breathtaking views of the passing river landscapes. To round out your experience, many shore excursions are included and expertly conducted by English speaking guides.
* Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
