Celebrate 40 years of travel with Riviera

Celebrate 40 years of travel with Riviera

This year, Riviera is celebrating its 40th birthday and we’d love you to join us!

We’re extraordinarily proud of our heritage and unashamedly so. From humble beginnings with a handful of tents on a campsite in the south of France, four decades later, we’re now the UK’s leading operator of river cruises and tours across Europe and beyond.

We’ve had the privilege of taking many thousands of guests on adventures to more than 50 countries (and counting) but our ethos to provide an exceptional holiday experience to the world’s most amazing places – that’s as educational as it is entertaining – and all for the best value you’ll find anywhere, remains as strong as it ever was.

We’d be honoured to welcome you and we’ve got a holiday to suit every member – from five-star European river cruises and carefully curated tours to thrilling seafaring adventures by yacht and tall ship or a voyage to remember on our small (but perfectly formed) ocean cruise ship, the magnificent Celestyal Journey.

Unbeatable value which includes so much

A Riviera holiday includes so much more than you might expect: expertly crafted itineraries (by well-travelled explorers), fascinating tours and visits, hand-picked accommodation, plus on board our river and ocean cruises, imaginative fine-dining and the most spacious cabins and suites.

Rivera’s new 4-day Bordeaux tour gives you the perfect introduction to this world-famous wine region.

Choose from a selection of direct flights from your local airport at no extra cost – plus all transfers, and you’ll always have the reassuring services of an experienced and knowledgeable Riviera Cruise Director and Concierge or Tour Manager who’ll look after you throughout. And on our river cruises in 2024, we’ll also be including a free Superior drinks package (worth £400 per person per week)!

What’s more, whichever holiday you choose to book, your Rotary Club will receive 10% of the total cost of your holiday after travel. It doesn’t stop there, with offers for groups starting at just 8 people, there is no better time for a holiday with friends, colleagues or for a family celebration.

New to Riviera!

In addition to our classic river cruises along Europe’s greatest waterways, there’s a whole lot of newness to look forward to.

Take a look at our new 8-day cruise along the Douro; aboard our fabulous brand-new ship, you’ll drift through the dramatic landscapes of this picturesque Portuguese valley, famed for its Port wine production, and explore some of the very best historic little towns and cities along the way.

There’s the opportunity to extend your holiday with one of our 3-night Tour Extensions at the end of your river cruise, staying 3 nights in a hand-picked hotel in some of Europe’s most incredible cities too.

Brand new for 2024, get under the skin of Amsterdam, Porto or Vienna, with a perfectly balanced itinerary of included guided tours and visits and time to explore at your own pace.

Riviera are launching their Grand Tours – with an epic adventure to Costa Rica or New Zealand & Australia included.

We’ve also launched 8 brand new Themed Cruises too – providing the opportunity to delve a little deeper into your favourite interests through the eyes of insightful speakers and expert guides; from art, music, food and wine, gardens or history, enjoy these extra-special cruises featuring carefully-selected experiences specifically tailored to your passion – and perfectly designed for enthusiasts of every level.

Love wine and want to learn more? Then our new 4-day Bordeaux tour gives you the perfect introduction to this world-famous wine region.

Our worldwide tour collection is packed with dream holiday ideas. From Japanese icons to Kenya’s phenomenal wildlife, Malaysia’s tropical paradise to the USA’s mind-blowing national parks, you’re assured a holiday of a lifetime.

Relax and unwind on one of our 4 new beach stay tours combined with an action-packed tour; explore the desert landscape of Jordan, experience the bustling markets in India, marvel at Ha Long Bay in Vietnam or unwind on golden beaches in Sri Lanka. And for a very special bucket-lister holiday, we’re launching our Grand Tours – with an epic adventure to Costa Rica or New Zealand & Australia, the ultimate antipodean adventure.
