  • River Cruising

    River Cruising has taken the travel world by storm in the past few years and though most people associate River Cruising with Viking River Cruises there are actually many great companies available!  Though River Cruises are mostly designed for adults be sure to ask us about Adventure by Disney and Tauck Bridges River Cruises for Families - they are very popular especially with multi generational groups and sell out early!  

    Our River Cruise expert is Jaime Murphy.  She has sailed on the Rhine, Danube and Mekong Rivers and just adores river cruising.

    Adventures by Disney

     The Adventures by Disney River Cruises were designed for families. Our itineraries offer a variety of unique experiences that parents, children and teens can enjoy—ranging from active excursions, castle and museum tours and unique onboard activities to Disney movie nights for Junior Adventurers and wine tasting for adults.

    Jaime Murphy has taken an Adventures by Disney Vacation and will explain what makes them stand in a league of their own!  Such an amazing vacation experience.
