RHINE & RHONE REVEALED (WINE APPRECIATION)

Tour: WLAW  PORT ST LOUIS  AMSTERDAM
Immerse yourself in French and German culture on this fabulous European river cruise along the Rhine, Saône, and Rhône Rivers. With a Master of Wine accompanying you on the French portion of your cruise, you’ll hear interesting presentations on winemaking and be hosted for delicious wine tastings and pairings. Begin in Port Saint Louis and cruise to Avignon for a guided tour of Châteauneuf du Pape. Visit charming Arles and Viviers, and enjoy a wine-and-chocolate tasting at the Cité du Chocolat at Valrhona or hike in the vineyards in medieval Tournon. Take a guided tour of Beaujolais, and join a culinary tour in the gastronomic capital of Lyon. In Mâcon, go on an excursion to a Chardonnay wine cellar.

Transfer from St. Jean Losne to embark on your Rhine River cruise from Basel, Switzerland. Cruise to Breisach, Germany—gateway to the Black Forest, and visit Strasbourg, France. Sail to Mainz, with your choice of a guided walk with a visit to the Gutenberg Museum, or an excursion to nearby Heidelberg Castle. Visit the vineyard town of Rüdesheim, and sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River dotted every mile with ancient castles. Arrive in Cologne, a 2,000-year-old city best known for its gothic architecture and famous twin-spired cathedral.

Conclude your cruise in Holland’s popular, modern capital of Amsterdam. The best way to see the treasures of this 700-year-old city is on a canal cruise along the elegant Grachten. A lovely way to celebrate your wine-lover’s cruise on the Rhine and Rhône Rivers.
