Luxury river cruises in Europe

Cultural Cruises Europe

What makes a trip through Europe luxurious? For us it all comes down to attention to detail. A focus on the finer things in every aspect of what we do. If you’re looking for a luxury river cruise in Europe, you’ve come to the right place.

Served by exceptional staff

On-board, you can rest easy as our friendly team takes care of your every need. We pride ourselves on being attentive, but not intrusive. We’re always there and ready when you need us; and out of the way when you don’t.

Our tour leaders are your primary point of contact for your trip. They come in all shapes and sizes from a variety of backgrounds, but are united in their passion for sharing the best of Europe with you. All are multilingual (speaking English, German and Dutch at least), enthusiastic and make every day of the tour filled with sensational sights and fascinating facts.

Experience exceptional accommodation

Taking one of the best river cruises in Europe means magnificent accommodation. We’ve spared no expense outfitting our three Magnifique barges to the highest standards of luxury accommodation. That’s why we fondly refer to them as floating hotels. They have all the amenities and luxury you would expect with a grand hotel while lazily making their way down the river.

The Magnifique is your home base as you explore the best that Europe has to offer. After exceptional days exploring the local sights, you can return to your spacious cabin for some rest and relaxation. Or, head to the deck to enjoy a sundowner as you let the world drift by.

All our premium cabins have en-suite facilities and individually controlled air conditioning. Upper deck cabins also offer a small sitting area and large windows to enjoy the scenery. The magic of being gently rocked to sleep as the Magnifique rests in the water lets you know you’ve truly found a little piece of heaven.

Enjoy exceptional dining

A luxury river cruise means delectable dinners and scrumptious breakfasts. When you wake up from a restful night, the scent of freshly baked bread will lead you to a generous continental breakfast. Get set for the day with a wide range of local cheeses, cereals, fruits, cold cuts and, of course, some freshly brewed coffee or tea.

For lunch, you have the opportunity to explore the local cuisine of that day’s fascinating tour destination. Whether partaking of Belgium’s famous moules et frites (mussels and fries) or snacking on some bitterballen in Amsterdam, you’re sure to find something to whet your appetite. And, of course, a fine local beer or wine to wash it down.

Every night our world-class chefs will prepare a delicious, locally sourced feast. Our chefs love showing off French, Flemish and Dutch favourites, but don’t be surprised if you find some global cuisine sneaking in. Our meals are also perfectly complemented by a selection of the best beers and wine available. All diets can be accommodated and meals will be served in our luxuriously appointed dining area.

Exceptional tour destinations

We’ve carefully selected our tour stops to give you nothing but the best of Europe. From the awe-inspiring architecture of the cities to the quaint houses and cobble-stone streets of medieval towns, you’ll embark on an unforgettable journey through Europe’s green heart.

See the Dutch masters in person at Amsterdam’s famous Rijksmuseum, wander through Brugge – Belgium’s most beautiful city,  marvel at Saint Jan’s 72 stained glass windows and sip on Westvleteren Trappist beer – proclaimed by many as the best beer in the world. All this and more is waiting for you on your European luxury river cruise.

The perfect tour for discerning travellers

We can’t wait for you to join us, so please enquire or make a booking as soon as possible. Spots, understandably, fill up fast and we don’t want you to miss out on the trip of a lifetime.
