Happy Traveler Comment
Hi Cesar: I want to Thank you so much for putting together a professional quote for us. I have dealt with a lot of travel agents and sometimes I feel like I'm the agent because they don't get me the info I request and I end up looking in the computer for the information myself, so again, thank you for your time and professionalism. I will recommend you to others when asked about a travel agent. — Victor and Pat C.

Thanks to Viking’s new active shore excursions, travelers will be able to indulge their desire for more authentic, energetic explorations of the best destinations in Europe.

Viking focuses on providing the best core experience possible on European river cruises, fully immersing guests in the culture and cuisine of the countries they visit. As a result, Viking has a reputation for delivering the best european cruises for couples, where guests travel in luxurious cabins as they travel to the most desired destinations. On these all-inclusive voyages, couples enjoy many amenities typically considered extras, such as lunch and dinner drinks and Wi-Fi, free of charge. Until now, included shore excursions have taken a more relaxed approach to exploring, consisting for the most part of walking and motorcoach tours.

Viking has impressively expanded its shore excursions with a new portfolio of optional tours on selected European destinations this year. The new tours are built around three pillars: Local Life, Working World, and Privileged Access. Viking’s new excursions are ideal for guests who want to take a more active role in exploring the beauty of Europe. On select 2018 and 2019 itineraries, Viking guests will have the opportunity to purchase active optional excursions that include canoe, bike, and electronic bike tours.  Of course, guests still have the option of an included shore excursion at each destination. best european cruises for couples

Guests will need to book Viking’s new excursions in advance, as the equipment needed for the more active shore excursions, such as canoes, bikes, and electronic bikes, will be provided in port rather than carried onboard the ships. Fortunately, Viking’s online portal makes booking these new excursions a breeze.

New active excursions from Tauck

Starting with its Spring 2018 sailings, Tauck will also be offering more active excursions for travelers on selected European itineraries. Guests can participate in on-board yoga-inspired stretching classes, before heading out on guided bike outings and hiking opportunities at a variety of European river cruise destinations.
