Escorted Belgium River Cruises

Holiday tours in the land of chocolate

Medieval cities, ornate architecture and charming towns can be enjoyed as you journey along Belgian waterways. Visit multi-cultural cities that play host to wonderful Art Nouveau architecture as you cruise along historic canals and picturesque rivers. Spring is a magical time of year to enjoy river cruising in Europe particularly in Holland and Belgium where the fields are ablaze with an array of colourful flowers. Great Rail Journey's river cruises are a great way to appreciate the highlights of each destination as you sail among pretty villages and towns that are awash with imposing buildings and monuments.

When you take a scenic cruise along Belgian waterways you can explore the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Antwerp which is the 'diamond centre of the world'. Choose to discover the city either on a guided tour where you will be led amongst many of the area's fascinating sights, or more independently. The Grote Markt lies in the heart of the old quarter and is enveloped by beautiful buildings. The Town Hall and Houses of the Guilds display some of the country's most elaborate architecture which is worth a visit when river cruising in Europe. During your trip to Antwerp perhaps take some time to stroll along the river and witness the splendour of the striking countryside.

River Cruising in Europe - a Relaxing Way to Travel

Ghent is another of Belgium's incredible cities, it exudes medieval charm and has an impressive 19 museums. The Castle of the Counts is an inspirational piece of architecture which has been sympathetically restored and parts of the medieval moat still surround its walls. You may want to wander around the stylish shops when river cruising in Europe, and make sure you remember to sample some of the delicious Belgian chocolate!

Not only can you join thrilling excursions on Great Rail Journeys' cruises, when sailing between cities and towns you can relax on board a luxurious 5 star ship that offers sumptuous surroundings and elegant cabins. Indulge in gourmet cuisine or let yourself be pampered in the massage room before relaxing with a cool drink in the bar.

As well as accommodation and meals being included within the price of your cruise, you can also enjoy the services of a professional Tour Manager who will assist you throughout the duration of your holiday.
