This enchanting Danube river cruise from Bucharest to Amsterdam is truly an adventure. You'll begin with an overnight excursion from Bucharest to Transylvania, explore Romania's capital, sail to the very mouth of the Danube River, and then westward to Amsterdam, gliding past quaint towns, beautiful scenery, and historic buildings along the Danube, Main, and Rhine Rivers. In Transyvlania, visit Bran Castle of Dracula fame. Then, enjoy guided sightseeing of Brasov and visit Peles Castle in Sinaia—considered one of the most beautiful in Europe. In Romania's lively capital, Bucharest, you'll see the Arc de Triomphe—built in honor of WWI soldiers—and the historical Royal Palace Square. Travel to Fetesti and set sail for the mouth of the Danube River. Visit the exquisite Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoy guided sightseeing in Constanta and Bulgaria's ancient capital of Veliko Tarnovo. Visit the Ethnographical Museum and Church of the Nativity in Arbanassi and take pictures of Belogradchik's eclectic group of rock formations and the spectacular scenery of the Iron Gates. Then your river cruise takes you to the capitals of four countries: Belgrade, Serbia; Budapest, Hungary; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Vienna, Austria, where Local Guides will show you the highlights and you'll have time to explore on your own. In the heart of the Wachau wine region, go on a guided walk of charming Dürnstein, and later visit Melk's famous Benedictine Abbey. In Germany, there's guided sightseeing in Passau, Regensburg, Nuremberg, Bamberg, and Würzburg. Cruise the Main Danube Canal, a true feat of engineering, and pass through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water.

This river cruise vacation concludes in Holland's popular, modern capital of Amsterdam where you get a unique perspective of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city's “Golden Age."
