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.

Puszta Tour

  • Approximate Cost: $69 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3 Hours
  • Location: Kalocsa, Hungary
  • When: Afternoon tour

Get a glimpse of Hungarian country life with a visit to a working horse ranch that maintains a herd of up to 120 horses. Upon arrival, you’ll be welcomed with wine, bread, and onion slices. Watch authentic Hungarian csikós (cowboys) display their prowess on horseback. Next, take a carriage ride into the puszta, Hungary’s scenic great plain. As a special treat, a shepherd’s wife will provide homemade scones (pogacsa) and brandy (palinka). Before leaving, you’ll be able to visit the animals, including the Hungarian grey cattle, the long-haired “mangalica” pig herd, and the cheeky, clamorous donkey foals.

Tito's Memorial and Royal Palace

  • Approximate Cost: $69 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3 hours
  • Location: Belgrade, Serbia
  • When: Afternoon Tour

Start your tour at the Royal Compound in Dedinje, a fashionable district of Belgrade. King Alexander I Karadjordjevic built it for his family in the 1920’s, before his assassination in 1934 changed the course of Yugoslavian history. Today, the Crown Prince Alexander Karadjordjevic and his family live in the Royal Palace. You’ll enjoy a guided walking tour of the grounds, the Royal Palace, and the Church of Saint Andrej the First Called, along with a welcome drink. Your next stop is the memorial to former President of Yugoslavia Josip Broz Tito and the museum showcasing tributes he received during his rule.

Transylvania Highlights

  • Approximate Cost: $89 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 8 hours
  • Location: Sighisoara, Romania
  • When: Full-day tour

AVAILABLE ON TRANSYLVANIA EXTENSION ONLY: Discover Transylvania’s fairytale village of Sighisoara, a 12th Century Saxon settlement whose central citadel is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches, Sighisoara’s beautifully preserved medieval character rivals that of Old Prague or Vienna. The city’s other claim to fame is the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, also known as Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), ruler of the province of Walachia from 1456 to 1462. It was he who inspired Bram Stoker’s fictional creation, Count Dracula. You’ll learn the city’s fabled history on a guided walking tour that includes lunch at a local restaurant.
