The magic of Tauck’s award-winning European river cruises goes far beyond the riverboat you’re aboard or the landmarks you’ll visit.

It’s in the intimate ambience and personalised service…the places you’ll discover off the beaten path… and in the uncommon access to local culture and exclusive destination-driven experiences you can’t get on your own, as you experience a true slice of European life and return home transformed.

Whether you’re experiencing the Rhine or the Danube, the Douro, the Rhône, Seine, Maas or Moselle, our European river cruises are all about the unique cultural access you’ll enjoy wherever we visit, the strong connections you’ll make with the people you’ll meet and the traditions and genuine little moments they’ll share with you along the way.
