European River Cruises for History Buffs

historical travel tours

Jewish Heritage Cruises

Visit the Anne Frank House and Museum in Amsterdam on a Romantic Rhine Jewish Heritage cruise. The free audio tour of the home is available in nine languages explaining the persecution of the Jews in WWII – about Jews that were in hiding, and about the people who helped. Budapest, Hungary is home to the world’s second largest synagogue, and in Regensburg you can visit the Document Neupfarrplatz museum. Visit Terezin, Czechoslovakia to see one of the country’s largest concentration camps. A poignant memorial tells the historic and tragic experiences related to the camp.

Happy Traveler Comment
This past Dec., we went on a family cruise to the Caribbean. I was very glad I booked the cruise using Jeremy was just fantastic. We went on board and forgot to print out our excursions but she came through in just hours to make sure we got our tickets. The staff is very quick at responding and for the great price, worth it all the way. Thanks for giving us this great chance to enjoy something we always thought was way beyond our means. — Jane W.
