Bicycle Rental

  • Approximate Cost: $150 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: Duration of cruise
  • Location: Each location when docked
  • When: Each day when docked

Our deluxe bikes are easy use and offer the opportunity to discover some of Europe’s most historic and dynamic cities on two wheels. Reserve an adjustable-height, three-geared unisex bike for the duration of your cruise and set out for a spin exploring paved city trails as off-the-beaten-path destinations. Vantage even provides suggested route maps! We’ll also provide you with helmets and locks — all you need to do is pack firm-soled shoes, lightweight layers like moisture-wicking fabrics, a windbreaker, and pants made of breathable fabric (or padded cycling pants if you're an enthusiast!). Don’t forget your sense of adventure and set off on two wheels for innumerable discoveries.

Salzburg

  • Approximate Cost: $65 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 7 hours
  • Location: Salzburg, Austria
  • When: Full-day tour

Embark on this optional tour of Salzburg, a jewel of a city nestled in the Austrian Alps. The famed birthplace of Mozart and the site where The Sound of Music was filmed, this city is teeming with charm. On a walking tour of the Old Town, also recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll see many fine examples of notable architecture and learn the history of this picturesque town.  


Tour Image

Schönbrunn Palace

  • Approximate Cost: $59 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3 hours
  • Location: Vienna, Austria
  • When: Half-day tour

Set off on this optional tour to Schönbrunn Palace, a grand baroque edifice with a rich history dating back to the 16th century.   The place has an impressive 1,441 rooms (though only 40 are open to vistors) and was an imperial summer palace for the Habsburg dynasty.  With a history and grandeur that more than justifies its UNESCO World Heritage Site status, this is an excellent spot to visit during your time in Vienna.  


Tour Image

Kutná Hora Excursion

  • Approximate Cost: $79 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 7 hours
  • Location: Prague, Czech Republic
  • When: Afternoon tour

Following an hour-long motorcoach ride through the beautiful Bohemian countryside, you will reach the stunning town of Kutná Hora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town grew up near the area’s rich silver mines, ultimately becoming the second most important town in the Kingdom of Bohemia after Prague. During this great excursion, you will see all of the key medieval and baroque monuments, including the former central royal mint, the interior of St. Barbara’s Cathedral, and the nearby Ossuary — famous for its elaborate decorations made out of human bones!


Tour Image

Hollókő: A Step Back in Time

  • Approximate Cost: $119 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 8 hours
  • Location: Budapest, Hungary
  • When: Full-day tour, including home-hosted lunch

A scenic journey back in time, into the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, takes you to the medieval UNESCO World Heritage village of Hollókő. Here life follows the same patterns it did centuries ago — the houses are built in a medieval style with whitewashed walls and red-tiled roofs, and the locals still honor age-old customs and dress in traditional embroidered clothing on special occasions — such as your arrival! You'll be greeted with singing, dancing, and a snack of Hungarian cheesecake. Then, in small groups, we'll be invited into a home for lunch — a truly wonderful way to meet people of Hungary. Afterwards, you'll take a walking tour through the village's cobbled streets.
