Regional flights available - Call us for a quote from your local airport


On this incredible 13-day adventure you’ll join your ship in Budapest, with two days to explore the city’s many historic sights before you set sail. From there, you’ll work your way north to Austria’s magical culture-rich capital Vienna, before you explore a number of this country’s smaller, historic town such as Melk and Durnstein. You’ll also visit Austria’s third largest city Linz before travelling onward into Germany where you’ll have the opportunity to explore the medieval city of Regensburg before arriving in historic Nuremberg. Here you’ll disembark and have time to explore before transferring overland to end your holiday in the Czech Republic’s stunning capital Prague.
