We realize that our guests have different tastes, so we’ve developed a menu of shore excursions with a variety of choices so you can personalize your
experience in every port of call. In many destinations, you’ll be free to choose from one of several guided tours — all of which are included in your
cruise fare. There’s always a city tour designed to show you all the renowned highlights and landmarks in grand capitals and charming villages alike.
Is it your first time in Vienna, Austria? Opt for an unforgettable exploration of the major sights led by a local, English-speaking guide that is well
versed in history and culture. Have you already been to Nuremberg, Germany? Instead of taking the city tour, indulge in a bratwurst and beer tasting
on one of our included special interest tours, which are specially designed to immerse you in local culture and flavors. Are you looking for something
more active? See the beautiful scenery of Austria’s Wachau Valley with a guided bike tour along the Danube River. The choice is yours.
On a river cruise, you don’t just pass through a destination — you experience it with all your senses. Each one of our sailings is crafted with a
paramount goal in mind: connecting you to the essence of life in each place you visit. We always make it a point to place our guests in small
groups. This helps facilitate access to sights and landmarks, a more intimate setting, and more encounters with the locals. It’s a great way
to take your time as you explore, get to know your fellow travelers better and find opportunities for up-close experiences and front-row views.
Every tour is led by a local, English-speaking guide who is very knowledgeable in the culture and history of the place you are visiting.
Choose your pace: In many cases, you’ll have a choice of gentle, regular and active tour paces. There are even some late riser tours for those guests who prefer to sleep in.
Our special interest tours are specially designed to give small groups the chance to be even more
immersed in a destination – and, just like our other incredible shore excursions, every one of them
is included in the price of your river cruise. Here are just a few examples:
During your sailing, you have the choice of enhancing your best self while exploring Europe’s amazing sights just as the locals do. We were the first
river cruise line to carry an entire fleet of complimentary bicycles on board, so you can pedal alongside enchanting riverside pathways and in city
centers on a variety of included biking excursions. Whether you feel like joining one of our exclusive guided bike tours, or want to go discover on
your own, there are many ways for you to explore on two wheels during your river cruise. Here are a few examples:
The beauty of Europe doesn’t just lie in its architecture and landmarks – there are also breathtaking sights when you venture out into nature.
That’s why we’ve designed special included hikes that will take you a bit off the beaten path, showing you incredible destinations from a
unique perspective and giving you a chance to revel in the fresh air.
