Much of the walking on tours is over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways, and flagstone paths. Panoramic air-conditioned coaches and you can expect journeys to an hour or more. Coaches are used whenever to bring you as close to pedestrian centers preservation of these older towns and cities. Museum visits feature multiple flights of stairs.

CULTURAL FOCUS: European river cruising is the perfect way to take in the legendary scenery of the Rhine and Danube, which has been lauded in music and writing throughout the ages. The fairytale nature of the region is enchanting, while the historic importance of the rivers to the heritages of Germany, Austria, Hungary, and the Netherlands is evident as well. The Main and Rhine river cruise portion introduces you to stunning medieval architecture and an intriguing cultural legacy. The Danube River cruise portion features areas, such as the beautiful Wachau Valley, that are unfamiliar even to travelers who have been to Europe many times. Vantage's exclusive "Cultural Connections" activities, which include lectures, demonstrations, concerts, wine tastings, and a few meals ashore in local restaurants (or lunch money for meals on own), provide you with opportunities to truly experience the cultures and traditions of the places you visit.
