Discover a secret side to an iconic destination on a relaxing barge or river cruise. Drift by villages and vineyards, glimpse an authentic rural life and those hidden gems that pass many others by. Whether you want to explore the waters of the mighty Amazon, cruise through the untouched beauty of Burma’s Irrawaddy or sample the local delicacies of the Champagne region, we’ll find the perfect barge or river cruise for you.
Looking for an immersive adventure that doesn't scrimp on life's little luxuries? A high end river cruise has all of the amenities and service levels of a five-star hotel and we've been fussy about hand picking only those barges and river boats that will transport you to another world, take you off the beaten track and show you some of the world's most beautiful places from a whole new perspective.
Culture lovers, imagine floating along the Mekong, watching daily life unfold in the riverside villages of Vietnam and Cambodia, exploring monasteries during your on-shore excursions. Wildlife fans, picture yourself cruising on the Amazon, surrounded by millions of acres of rain forest and the chance to see hundreds of species, from the pink Amazon dolphin to the giant river otter. If cities are more your thing, how about a voyage along the Danube, soaking up the history, architecture and culture in locations such as Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest? Or why not charter a barge in the south of France with family and friends where medieval towns, mouthwatering meals and local wines await.
With a wide selection of barge and river cruises around the globe, we're ready to craft a bespoke itinerary just for you, whatever floats your boat.
