Iconic Budapest to Amsterdam River Cruise from $5,995 Including Return Flights

Sydney (February 2017) – Viking River Cruises is offering guests a chance to embark on its 15-day Grand European Tour in 2018 from the special price of $5,995 inclusive of return airfares to Europe. The 15-day itinerary takes guests through four countries including Hungary, Austria, Germany and The Netherlands.

Travelling through the heart of Europe, guests will have the opportunity to visit nine UNESCO World Heritage sites and embark on 12 guided tours. One of Viking’s most iconic itineraries, guests will trace the legendary Danube, Main and Rhine Rivers between the stunning landscapes of Hungary and the windmill-dotted waterways of Holland. Highlights of the itinerary include a visit to Budapest’s Café Gerbeaud, a Viennese waltz lesson, and a chance to experience European history first hand through the castles of the Rhine Valley and The Netherlands.

As part of Viking’s Culture Curriculum, guests will enjoy concerts onboard and onshore, ranging from Austrian classics to baroque organ music; attend lectures on current affairs in Germany, Holland & the European Union; learn how to make your own Rüdesheim Coffee, and experience the wonderful scents of a Viennese market.

“We are excited to be offering this great deal on selected 2018 sailings of our Grand European Tour,” said Michelle Black, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand. “This is an amazing deal which we are offering for a limited time only, and gives guests the opportunity to experience some of the best and most iconic sights of Europe. We encourage agents to make the most of this fantastic price and book their clients now as it will sell out.”
