PACING: 8 days, 6 ports of call, and 7 nights aboard the Deluxe ms River Discovery II. This expertly planned European river cruise itinerary brings you to the finest story book towns and memorable locations along the Rhine River.

EASY & FAST WALKING TOURS: On your Rhine River cruise, you'll have a chance to join included walking tours that go at an easier leisurely pace or some that go at a faster clip, depending upon your abilities and preferences, at selected locations. Either way, you won't miss any highlights, and on some tours you'll have free time to walk on your own.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: This European river cruise itinerary features multiple walking tours. You can expect short uphill stretches as you set out on walking tours and through some parts of these ancient towns. Much of the walking on tours is over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways, and flagstone paths. Panoramic tours use air-conditioned coaches, with some journeys of up to an hour or more. Whenever possible, the motorcoaches will bring you as close to pedestrian centers as the historic preservation of these older towns and cities can allow. Museum visits may include several flights of stairs. The canal tours in Amsterdam and Strasbourg require you to embark and disembark the tour boats via steps or a ramp.

CULTURAL FOCUS: The landscapes, the romance, and the medieval setting of the towns along the Rhine come together in one perfect itinerary. From the influence of the Romans who extended their empire here in the 1st century AD to the well-preserved medieval towns and immaculate modern cities, this journey showcases the natural beauty of one of Europe's most beloved rivers, as you visit wonderful locations from Amsterdam to Basel.

In addition, should there be an extreme change in water levels, Vantage will do everything possible to provide either the included excursion or an alternate excursion at Vantage’s discretion.
