Your Escorted Solo Traveller Rhine River Cruise Holiday
Discover some of the most stunning towns and cities of Europe with us on this solo traveller Rhine river cruise. Before embarking on our Rhine River Cruise holiday, our adventure will begin with guided city tour of Frankfurt, then we'll board our 4 star MS Amadeus ship to set sail. The ship will take you into the centre of most towns we'll visit, as it's much smaller than an ocean liner, giving us more time to visit the attractions and enjoy our time ashore. On our holiday, we’ll enjoy tours with local guides and free time for sightseeing in Trier, Saarlouis & Saarburg. There are also optional excursions to avail of, such as a walking tour of Luxembourg. Each port we visit on our Rhine River Cruise holiday has so much to offer and is full of cultural gems and historical sights.
Please Note: This holiday may not be suitable for those with reduced mobility. For more details, please contact us.
