The mighty Rhine cuts a course through the heart of continental Europe, flowing through enriching capitals and regions of untold natural wonder.

The itinerary begins in Amsterdam, and sees you travel upstream through the Netherlands and into Germany, where you’ll enjoy daily stops in Cologne, Koblenz, Mannheim, Kehl and Breisach, before crossing into Switzerland for a final day in Basel. Of course, your tour includes several unforgettable Rhine river excursions — from a guided bike tour in Amsterdam to a scenic walk through the fascinating medieval town of Heidelberg.
