Rhine River Cruise

One of the great water highways of the world is the beautiful Danube River. Important parts of Europe have grown and thrived due to the benefits of this magnificent water way. Webb Tours has teamed up with Emerald Cruises to offer this exciting vacation that will take you first to Prague in the Czech Republic (2 nights) which is without a doubt one of Europe’s most charmeing capital cities (it’s #1 in my book). We then enjoy an exciting 8 day river cruise tranquil, Blue Danube through Bavaria, Slovakia, Austria, Melk and ending in the dramatic scenery of Budapest. It is a trip NOT to be missed and we are doing in June which is the pefect month to be there. 

BUT TO BE INCLUDED, YOU HAVE TO ACT QUICKLY! Cruising the rivers of Europe is very popular and for good reason. Also, riverboats are of course much smaller than cruise ships, welcoming several hundred guests instead of several thousand.  And some of the most charming towns and scenery in Europe happen to be on the rivers. For all of these reasons, space is carefully monitored and often sold out 9 months before departure.

So COME ABOARD. We are holding guaranteed space with locked in pricing for our group until October 1, 2023. After that date, if there are unsold cabins, the price will increase. So read on. We think you’ll like what you see. We look forward to hosting your journey along the serene Danube River.
