Independent article praises European River Cruises

An article published by The Independent has heaped huge praise on the European river cruising sector, saying that it’s time to head out and explore the waterways of the continent.

In the article, which can be viewed by clicking on the link at the foot of this piece, author Jeannine Williamson says that luxurious river cruise with Scenic Tours; our holidays are the perfect method to help discover the beauty of mainland Europe.

She adds that river cruising is a completely different experience to ocean cruising, with obstacles like low bridges and narrow locks meaning that ships are often constrained to host around 200 people. They also offer a far more relaxed experience, with less strict dress codes and a range of itineraries to choose from providing more flexibility. There’s also the fact that so much is included in the one price, especially with our cruises where the only extra expenses are a small range of vintage or rare wines and champagnes.

There are also the itineraries to consider and with multiple countries packed into a holiday that can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, there’s no better way to enjoy a getaway full of discovery and experience.
