Free time to explore Vienna at your leisure. Once the centre of the Habsburg Empire, Vienna’s regal imperial past is still there to be seen in the many fine buildings and palaces. Our optional, guided sightseeing tour will show you the principal sights, including the home where Johann Strauss composed the famous Blue Danube Waltz. We leave Vienna this evening and cruise this evening towards Budapest.
We arrive this morning in Budapest. Enjoy a day of discovering the Hungarian capital. Our optional sightseeing tour captures many of the sights, including the Fisherman’s Bastion, the Royal Palace, Parliament and St. Stephen’s Basilica.
We arrive in Bratislava, the Slovakian capital, where we spend most of the day. We include a brief orientation tour of the city, with its exquisitely renovated centre of Baroque palaces, fountains and romantic streets. We leave mid-afternoon and begin our cruise back westwards along the mighty Danube.
We arrive this morning in Dürnstein, in the heart of the Wachau region. See the 12th century castle, where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned. Around midday, we cruise past the pretty town of Melk, dominated by the huge 900-year old Benedictine abbey.
This morning we arrive in Passau, situated at the confluence of the Danube, Inn and Ilz Rivers. We disembark and enjoy free time in this delightful city. Enjoy a stroll through the cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways. We leave Passau and head by coach to Würzburg. The city is known as the ‘Pearl of the Romantic Road’ and is home to the 18th century Residenz Palace, the Romanesque St. Kilian Cathedral and the old Main Bridge. After spending time here, we continue to our overnight hotel in the Frankfurt area.
We believe that our holidays may not be suitable for children under 8 years old (except for Disneyland Paris bookings) however, we will
consider individual requests on application. Customers aged 18 and under at the time of travel must be accompanied by an adult, parent or
guardian aged over 18 years old.
You will stay for six nights' full board on the 4-star MS Select Explorer, which combines classical comfort with an intimate and cosy atmosphere. The lounge and restaurant are spacious and light, with floor to ceiling windows for watching the passing scenery. Another great place to enjoy the sights is the fully covered Sky Lounge. Cabins are located on the Lower, Middle and Upper Deck. All cabins are equipped with individual air-conditioning and heating, T.V., safety deposit box and hairdryer.
Your overnight stays in Belgium and Germany will be in city-style hotels.
We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
