Luxembourg River Cruises
Out of all of the countries that are visited on this river cruise, Luxembourg is a true eye-opener. The tiny country is the last destination reached on this Europe river cruise and you will be fortunate to spend the night there in the specially selected Mercure Grand Hotel Alfa, located in the main shopping district of Luxembourg's city. Make the most of your time and explore the famous sights such as Casemates Bock, the 18th century underground fortifications, and the spectacular Neumünster Abbey.
The Ville Haute area is the historical part of Luxembourg while Ville Basse is particularly picturesque and located in a deep river gorge that cuts through the city. All over Luxembourg you will discover charismatic squares and elegant bridges and there are plenty of interesting museums to explore. Thanks to an overnight stay in the city, you have the opportunity to sample some of the dynamic nightlife close to the hotel. A mix of traditional pubs, modern bars and cabarets is enough to suit any guest on this Luxembourg escorted tour.
Experience a River Cruise through Europe
Travelling aboard a 5 star ship, there is nothing more relaxing than seeing the highlights of several countries from your own floating hotel. Each day you will wake up to a new and intriguing city during the course of a Europe river cruise, and you are welcome to join one of the organised excursions to see some of the main sights. You also have the freedom to go ashore by yourself and explore destinations at your own pace - your Tour Manager will happily suggest some ideas if you wish. A Rhine River cruise in Europe begins in Germany where you will sail past the hilltop castles and vineyards in the famous Rhine Gorge, docking at Koblenz and Rüdesheim along the way. Continuing into the Alsace region of France, explore the city of Strasbourg on a guided tour before sailing on for Switzerland and disembarking the ship in Basel. After spending some time in this elegant Swiss city, board the train for Luxembourg for an overnight stay and return to London by rail the following morning. A Europe river cruise lets you do all of this in upmost style and you can expect to be well looked after by the friendly crew throughout the course of your holiday.
