River cruises

Luxury river cruises

Introduction

Luxury river cruises range from a sedate sojourn on the Danube or the Canal du Midi to a full-blown adventure on the Amazon, a fascinating trip through Indochina on the Mekong, or a lazy cruise along the tranquil backwaters of Kerala.

Egyptian Nile cruises are a firm favourite, offering a rich mix of archaeological sites, rare birdlife and croc-watching. Rhine cruises course through Germany, Switzerland and Holland, or join the Main-Danube Canal to connect with Austria, Hungary and the Black Sea.

Other European river cruises meander along the unspoilt Douro in northern Portugal and Spain, the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers in beautiful Bordeaux country, or the scenic rivers, canals and lakes linking Moscow and St Petersburg.

Mekong cruises through Vietnam and Cambodia sail through floating villages hardly touched by tourism, while a cruise along the Yangtze through the Three Gorges can begin and end with extended visits to Beijing, the Great Wall and Shanghai; ask our specialists about city break and tour options at the beginning or end of your chosen voyage along the the most spectacular waterways of the world.
