We thought Avalon did a wonderful job on our Rhine cruise. The staff were great, the boat was very nice.

It was our first time on a River Cruise, wonderful and memorable vacation. I highly recommend the Romantic Rhine to fellow travelers.

Far superior to what I expected. Our transportation was well scheduled, seat assignments were also a plus. We are converts to river cruising. Tour director was organized, informative, and available. have already recommended your firm to many of our friends who have asked us to share our experiences.
