Whether you’re looking to embark on a European river cruise or worldwide tour, there’s so much included on Riviera Travel’s thoughtfully crafted itineraries.
It’s never been easier to arrange group travel either – every little detail is planned for your group, from your return Eurostar or flights, to the hotel, transfers and daily itinerary. On European river cruises, delicious dining is included too.
Riviera Travel can help choose dates and hold your booking, as well as send you a booking pack with a choice to pay individually or as a group. All that’s left, is to decide which amazing destination to visit first. Here are five must-visit places to inspire you and your Rotary club for a 2021 group trip.
Amsterdam, Cologne and the Best of Holland & Flanders
New for 2021, the Amsterdam, Cologne and the Best of Holland & Flanders river cruise begins in the capital of the Netherlands, before cruising through the likes of maritime Rotterdam and the cobbled streets of Antwerp before arriving in the historic, 2000-year old city of Cologne.
Marvel at the colourful canalside of Amsterdam, architecture of Rotterdam, incredible Kinderdijk windmills, the highlights of UNESCO-listed Bruges and Ghent’s Gothic Cathedral, as well as a choice of visits to the Airborne Museum or Het Loo Palace in Arnhem.
Victoria Falls, Botswana Safari & Cape Town
Victoria Falls, arguably Africa’s greatest natural wonder, with wildlife-rich Botswana and incredible Cape Town. Africa’s sense of vastness and isolation, and its unique closeness to nature, leaves an indelible mark on its visitors and on this incredible three-country tour, your group will see some of the best it has to offer.
Your journey begins in Zambia, adjacent to the spectacular Victoria Falls, or as the locals call it – ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, the Smoke that Thunders! Explore the vibrant Bo-Kaap district, home to jazz clubs and artisans, take the revolving cable car to the top of Table Mountain, visit Robben Island and discover the Cape of Good Hope.
Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer
The magnificent Rocky Mountains are Canada’s crowning glory: home to bears, elk, moose and beaver, whilst opaque lakes of stunning emerald green and turquoise reflect the spectacular scenery.
We stay in Banff, the very heart of the mountains, then travel along a monument to man’s engineering prowess, the ‘road of steel’ that is the great Trans-Canadian railway, on the incredible Rocky Mountaineer train.
Explore quintessential medieval Germany, the aptly named Romantic Road, and some of Bavaria’s most enchanting towns and cities on a Main river cruise with your group.
Leisurely glide to the likes of Mainz, Miltenberg and Ochsenfurt to wonder at the carefully preserved medieval settlements, with their winding, cobbled streets and half-timbered houses.
Seek out a traditional wine tavern in the pastel-painted, timber-crisscrossed buildings of the Mainz old town, marvel at the impressive Marienberg Fortress in Würzburg and explore the UNESCO-listed town of Bamberg.
Deep South USA and Texas
Take one of America’s classic ‘road trips’ exploring the Deep South, renowned for its gracious hospitality, its endearing southern drawl, its unique Creole and Cajun cuisine and, of course, the most popular music genres of the 20th century – jazz, rock n’ roll, the blues and country.
Plus, the charms and classic images of the lone star state, Texas. Your journey begins in Atlanta with its lovely laid-back southern charm, before travelling through the rolling rich farmland of Tennessee, past the cotton fields of Mississippi to Louisiana’s moss covered bayous and the vast South Texas plains.
You’ll stay in some of America’s most fascinating cities: Nashville, Memphis, the amazing New Orleans, as well as Houston, San Antonio and Dallas. We stay two nights in Nashville, known as Music City USA, before moving on to New Orleans, ‘The Big Easy’ with its motto ‘Laissez les bons temps rouler’ – let the good times roll.
