River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Amsterdam
    Sun, Mar 16, 2025

    A city of charming canals, elegant gabled houses, splendid museums and abundant bicycles, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam is a delight to explore. Its patchwork of waterways forms about 90 islands connected by 1,500 bridges. The legacy of the Dutch Golden Age lives on in gilded manses and in the lush paintings of Rembrandt and other Dutch masters that adorn the Rijksmuseum, The Netherlands' grand repository of art and cultural history. Discovering Amsterdam is a pleasure best pursued on foot; visitors line the tranquil canals and linger over Dutch pancakes, or take a stroopwafel to go.

  2. Day 2
    Amsterdam
    Mon, Mar 17, 2025

    A city of charming canals, elegant gabled houses, splendid museums and abundant bicycles, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam is a delight to explore. Its patchwork of waterways forms about 90 islands connected by 1,500 bridges. The legacy of the Dutch Golden Age lives on in gilded manses and in the lush paintings of Rembrandt and other Dutch masters that adorn the Rijksmuseum, The Netherlands' grand repository of art and cultural history. Discovering Amsterdam is a pleasure best pursued on foot; visitors line the tranquil canals and linger over Dutch pancakes, or take a stroopwafel to go.

  3. Day 3
    Hoorn
    Tue, Mar 18, 2025

    Founded in 1300, Hoorn was named for its horn-shaped harbor along the Ijsselmeer, the artificial lake created by the construction of massive dams. Long before the dams, sailors had easy access to the North Sea from here, and this bolstered the success of the Dutch East India Company. A major trader with Asia and the most powerful company in the world, it made Hoorn one of its six home bases. The Dutch navigator Willem Corneliszoon Schouten was born in Hoorn; he is best known as the man who rounded the southern tip of South America in 1616 and named it “Cape Horn” for his birthplace. Brimming with history, the city’s cobblestone streets and age-old cheese warehouses are a delight to explore.

  4. Day 5
    Kinderdijk
    Thu, Mar 20, 2025

    Kinderdijk is a village community in the Alblasserwaard province. This corner of South Holland, part of the scenic Waal and Merwede regions, has long been shaped by Rhine Delta waters. Kinderdijk is most known for its 19 remarkably preserved 18th-century windmills. The charming hamlet is located amid low-lying polders, tracts of land reclaimed from the sea by the power of the windmills and enclosed by embankments, or dikes. This legendary place calls to mind the 1865 novel Hans Brinker, in which a heroic boy plugs his finger into a ruptured dike.

  5. Day 6
    Wesel
    Fri, Mar 21, 2025

    Situated where the Lippe River flows into the Rhine, Wesel has long been an important trading center. The city reached its peak in the 15th century, when it was an influential member of the Hanseatic League, Northern Europe's dominant confederation of mercantile guilds. During its heyday, Wesel even rivaled Cologne as a major commercial presence. Throughout its history, it has been overseen by Spain, The Netherlands, France and Prussia. Peter Minuit, the founder of New Amsterdam-today's New York City-was born here. Today, the city recalls its glorious past in the Willibrord Cathedral, beautifully restored after Allied bombing, and the renovated structures of the stately Wesel Citadel.

  6. Day 7
    Nijmegen
    Sat, Mar 22, 2025

    Perched on the south bank of the Waal River, vibrant Nijmegen is home to one of The Netherlands' largest universities. Residents and students alike linger at sidewalk cafés and unique eateries and the city's many shops offer items that reflect Nijmegen's artistic sensibility. Nijmegen's lower city is home to the charming Velorama, a bicycle museum, while the larger Valkhof Museum chronicles the city's Roman and medieval past. Famously, Nijmegen was the site of a decisive three-day battle between Allied and German forces during World War II's Operation Market Garden.

  7. Day 8
    Maastricht
    Sun, Mar 23, 2025

    Straddling the Meuse River, Maastricht is one of The Netherlands’ oldest and most picturesque cities, boasting 1,677 Rijksmonumenten, or National Heritage Buildings. The narrow cobblestone streets and stunning churches of the car-free inner city evoke the rich medieval era, when the city held important places in the Carolingian and Holy Roman Empires. In the early 1990s, Maastricht took its place on the 20th-century world stage when the Maastricht Treaty was signed and the single European currency, the euro, was created here. Nearby, the American Military Cemetery in Margraten is the final resting place for more than 8,000 young men who fell during the march toward Germany after the D-Day Landings.

  8. Day 9
    Antwerp
    Mon, Mar 24, 2025

    A cosmopolitan city, Antwerp is one of the world's major seaports. Its unique atmosphere comes from the contrasts between old and new, commerce and art. The Old Town and the expansive Grote Markt are filled with narrow, winding streets and medieval guild houses. The Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady, Belgium's largest church, contains works by 17th-century painter Peter Paul Rubens; he lived in the city and is entombed in the Church of St. James. Antwerp is also renowned for diamonds and chocolate. Many diamond cutters can be found here alongside countless confectioners.

This was my 7th trip with Viking. They always go above and beyond

The 4 day pre-trip beginning in Geneva and ending in Zurich was the best we have ever had. The services provided by Viking was exceptional and the view of the Matterhorn Mountain was tremendous. We lucked out with the weather being exceptional during that time and the train ride from Zermatt to Zurich was everything anyone could ask for, the seats were comfortable, the food was great and the viewing unbelievable. Of all our travels, this was stood out the most!

The Viking Rhine River Cruise exceeded our expectations. The service was excellent through and through and they assisted almost effortlessly with my 91 year old mother who loved all of the service and wonderful personal attention. They also made her a cake and sang "Happy Birthday" to her. Thank you to our travel consultant at Affordable Tours who was a real joy and provided excellent service and much patience with all of our questions!

Viking is very organized and takes care of details. We were very impressed with the cruise line, crew, and staff throughout our trip.

The River Rhine cruise was far better than I expected.

American Airlines was the only poor experience of the whole trip. Each flight was an older plane with out of date accommodations / entertainment. There staff was not very pleasant for the most part either. Ship and staff were great. Food was great. Rooms were very nice. Affordable Tours was always there to help. Very professional and helpful. Enjoyed our trip Thank You.

The Viking River Cruise was a trip of a lifetime. The staff and crew were so friendly and helpful. The excursions were very informative and beautiful. The places were spectacular and memorable. We couldn't have seen all of these places if we had tried to do this trip of our own. The food and all the new people we met were beyond words. It's a must trip for anyone wanting to experience a trip of a lifetime!

Second time we've used Affordable Tours and will continue to use for future bookings.

The river cruise was wonderful and I have recommended it to my friends.
