Where will our river cruises take you?
The delights of Vienna, Bratislava, Salzburg, Esztergom and Budapest are all yours on our incomparable Danube river cruise. Our choice of river cruises along the Rhine and Moselle showcases picturesque German wine towns, iconic cities like Cologne, astonishing Heidelberg and half-timbered Strasbourg, the outstanding natural beauty of the Black Forest and jaw-dropping Swiss Alpine scenery.
If you love France, our river cruise through the spectacular Rhone Valley takes in the world renowned Burgundy vineyards, the sun-kissed hills of Provence and the enchanting wildness of the Ardèche gorges. Or choose the Seine - from romantic Paris through timeless impressionist countryside to medieval Rouen, historic Bayeux and the D-Day Normandy beaches. Then in Portugal there’s the photogenic, dramatic Douro, with Oporto and Salamanca just waiting to be discovered. Our two river cruises to Amsterdam and the Dutch bulbfields combine a step back into mediaeval history with world-class art and breathtaking floral displays.
For a completely different experience, a river cruise along the mighty Mekong River will take you through the gorges, lakes and fertile floodplains of Southeast Asia – to Saigon, Phnom Penh and the magnificent temples of Angkor.
You can see, visit and learn as much as you want on a Riviera Travel river cruise. Or you can just soak in the sunshine and the atmosphere, and watch the world glide by. It’s always your choice.
