Holland and the Rhine Special Offer

We begin our cruise in Amsterdam. With a rich and fascinating history, this delightful 700-year-old city with its elegant and classic architecture, cafes, restaurants, and lively marketplace has a distinct ambience. Here the works of famous Dutch masters can be seen in world-renowned museums such as the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh.

We cruise the Rhine from Amsterdam, travelling through rich farmland to Cologne with its Old Town and great Gothic Cathedral. As we cruise this beautiful strech of the Rhine to Strasbourg you will be able to admire the magnificent castles nestled in renowned vineyards, and also the legendary rock of the Lorelei.

Experience the delightful Rudesheim with its lively Drosselgrasse of restaurants and taverns, and possibly join the optional excursion to Heidelberg.
