Rhine River Escorted Cruises
Medieval castles perch on mountains which stand veiled in lush vineyards whilst in the distance another historic port of call begins to emerge, on a cruise along one of Europe's mightiest rivers. As you sail along the famous waters of the River Rhine every moment brings more of the beauty, history and culture of one of the most beloved journeys through Europe.
From the peaks of Switzerland a trickle turns into a stream, eventually becoming the majestic Rhine, which then flows through the remarkable scenery of Germany, France and finally the Netherlands. Rhine river cruises navigate along this popular waterway, calling at fortified hill top towns and multi-cultural cities which are abundant in attractions. This cross-continental route means that on just one journey it is possible to sample the famous chocolates and cheeses of Switzerland, explore the vineyards of France and see the famous windmills of Holland.
Rail is the perfect complement to a Rhine river cruise as it allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday from the moment you meet your Tour Manager in London. Like all Great Rail Journeys' holidays, you will be escorted by a professional Tour Manager who will be on hand throughout your journey, ensuring that everything runs smoothly and ready to answer any questions that you may have. First Class rail is used whenever possible on all our Rhine river cruises, to ensure that you are able to enjoy the passing scenery, read a book or talk to your fellow passengers in utmost comfort.
