Cultural Cruises

Our cruises consist of guided visits, in the company of our Tour Directors, to both famous and lesser known sites, which are further complemented by onboard lectures and recitals. This approach creates a uniquely layered experience that delves deeply into the histories, landscapes and cultural output of the rivers and waterways upon which we travel. Our privately chartered vessels cater for all our needs, with delicious onboard menus, comfortable modern cabins and elegant lounges in which to relax as we cruise between stops on our itineraries.
