European River Cruises
Whether you're exploring the Rhine or the Danube, the Rhône, Seine, Maas or Moselle... the magic of our award-winning European river cruises lies in more than just the riverboat you're aboard or the landmarks you'll visit.
It's in the intimate, club-like atmosphere and personalized service you'll enjoy aboard the custom-designed riverboats of Tauck's Destination Fleet, featuring more 300-square-foot Tauck Suites than other ships of comparable size. The places you'll discover off the beaten path, along with the must-see sights you just have to experience. The uncommon access to local culture and the exclusive destination experiences you just can't get on your own. The connections you'll make with the people you'll meet. The traditions and little moments they'll share with you. We never settle for ordinary because you deserve much more from a river cruise: to experience a true slice of European life and return home transformed. Where will the current take you?
